{YA Review} Blue Violet (Svatura #1) by Abigail Owen

{YA Review} Blue Violet (Svatura #1) by Abigail Owen

When Ellie Aubrey leaves her only remaining family and moves to Colorado, she knows she's risking her life. But she can't ignore the possibility of what she might find there. What she didn't expect to encounter was a bewildering connection to one smolderingly sexy Alex Jenner. But when Ellie's worst nightmare comes true and threatens to destroy everything she holds dear, she must fight to save those she loves most. Even if it means sacrificing herself by revealing a terrible truth... sometimes not all monsters are make believe.

{Details} Published August 19th 2012 by Abigail Owen, 260 pages. Source: Amazon

{Rating} 4/5

{Review} Interesting concept. Great story. Great characters.

Ellie is awesome. She's gifted, smart, kick ass, brave, fearless.  I want to be Svatura. Svatura don't need much sleep, have awesome powers, have soul mates. What's not to love? Well, the murderous Vyusher, but there's always a trade off.

I liked the characters, especially the Griffin/Ellie dynamic and their bantering. The romance is sweet, the action is exciting, it was definitely a page turner; I just wish it had been longer!

Blue Violet is self-published and very well written and edited. There's a second book, Hyacinth, which I can't wait to read.
