Book Description | Publication Date: March 1, 2011
Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she's seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.
As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.
And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.
|"I'm probably half in love with a boy I don't really like."|
My Review: ★★★★★While I was looking for a specific book, I found this book, the cover and title caught my eyes and I bought it; I wasn't sorry, I just opened the first chapter to read it and suddenly I found myself reaching chapter 6, and I couldn't put the book down, or stop thinking about it.
This book will surprise you and will keep you wondering what will happen next, it has everything from great characters to creepy dreams and dark moments.
The only thing you should know before starting is this:
Down is Up, and Up is Down.
Roses of black color do not exist in nature as such, but nevertheless have been created in laboratories. Botanists have manipulated roses' genes through preliminary cross breeding, creating a hybrid black rose.
They are often featured in fiction with many different meanings and titles such as black magic, barkarole, black beauty Tuscany superb, black Jade and baccara and death varieties of roses.
The flowers commonly called black roses are actually a very dark red color. Some roses are called black, but are actually just a dark shade of red, purple, or maroon.
To deepen a color of a rose place a dark rose in a vase of water mixed with black ink.

And still the nightmare realm of Under won’t let them go. Someone from Haden’s past is determined to destroy Theia from the inside out, starting with those closest to her, forcing Theia to choose between family and friends and a love that may have been doomed from the start…
