My Review:

4/5 Stars

Eventide is about a girl named Devon who was a driver in a tragic car accident that killed her best friend. Soon after the accident she starts seeing Rachael everywhere, and begins to believe that her hallucinations are real. Devon, so desperate for answers and clinging on to any hope that her friend may still be alive, begins searching for answers, for reasons to explain all the crazy things she starts to see. And the more she searches, the darker the world around her becomes. I absolutely adored this book. I’m a huge fan of stories about the Sidhe and Eventide does not disappoint! It’s action packed filled with mystery, darkness, and everlasting friendship. It’s intense, and a unique addition to stories of the fae world. It is unlike any book I have ever read. Not often do you hear about faes that practically suck the life out of people and thrive on the energy their souls give until they blink out of existence. One reason I loved this story so much is because of Devon’s unyielding devotion to her friend Rachael. Once she starts to believe that she’s really seeing Rachael, and once she discovers that Rachael needs her help, Devon doesn’t give up. She is loyal to her friend to the very end of the book. Another thing I enjoyed about Devon is that Devon doesn’t have any supernatural powers and yet she lives in a supernatural world. Devon is your average, normal teenage girl that is thrown into difficult situations. She’s courageous and determined, a wonderful heroine in the YA genre. The love story in the book was super adorable. I loved Jonah right from the beginning. He’s so kind, and so sensible. He’s her anchor to the world and they help balance each other as they uncover more about what happened to Rachael and how to save her. I also really enjoyed Devon’s interactions with her four year old sister Lucy. She’s so stinkin cute. This book is a must read and I can’t wait to read more books from Chrstine Allen-Riley! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mystery, adventure, fantasy, and stories about the Sidhe.

Book Quote: 

“Are you my sister’s boyfriend, now?”
My hands were still on his waist, and I felt a chuckle vibrate through him. He nodded at Lucy then he turned to me and added, “well, I am if she wants me to be.”
My little sister cocked her head to the side and looked at me. “Do you want him to?”
A flush warmed my face, and I nodded.
“Okay. wanna play barbies with me?”
Reaching out, I ruffled her hair. “Maybe after we eat. Right now I’m going to say goodbye to Jonah. Why don’t you go inside and see if you can help with supper?”
“All right. Bye, Boyfriend.”

Book Quote: 

Maggie’s bloodshot eyes hardened. “If you don’t find a way to save her, no one will. You have to do it. You’re the only one.”
“I don’t know how. I don’t know what to do.”
Maggie grabbed me by the shoulders and shook me. Hard. “figure it out, girl. If you don’t she has no chance.”
