Back from Hiatus with a review for Veined!

Hey everybody, thanks so much for stopping by even though I have been awol for a few weeks.  My life went from sort of busy to out of control busy.  But, enough of boring you with details.  I want to get to an AMAZING book I stumbled upon and devoured yesterday.    I love it when I randomly find these books that just capture my attention and imagination, and this book definitely is worth a read!  Plus it's only 99 cents!  Go get it, I know you haven't even read my review yet, but seriously, just go get it now and read for yourself.

When I fist read the description, I was thinking I was in for another weirdly put together book filled with a lot of angst (I've been reading those a lot lately, unfortunately)  but, I looked at the reviews this book has gotten and Amazon and thought, why not?  The first sentence definitely sets the tone of the book.  Sylva Lark has just awoken from a coma, and nothing is making sense anymore.  First she is in a hospital on the other side of the country from where home is, and she doesn't know how she got there.  As the story progresses we get to meet several enjoyable characters (Attic!) who absolutely make this book for me.  Sylva is paired with Attic, a womanizing hottie, as a transition helper to help her adjust back into normal life at a new school in a new state.

The weird thing is though, Sylva has a weird mark on her back that feels weird whenever she is around Attic, and feels like she is constantly being watched.  After she is attacked by demons (who knew they actually existed?!) nothing is the same, and Sylva can never return home, but not for the reasons you may think.

This book flat out left me breathless.  I haven't been this on edge waiting for a sequel (Feb '13 kill me now that is soooo long) since I don't even know when.  This book is REALLY worth a look at.  The characters that Anyta creates are wonderfully snarky, sarcastic, and real.  The pain that Sylva feels, you are immediately in the thick of it with her.  Talk about a character that real comes into her own in a novel.  Sylva becomes a leader, she is a girl that becomes braver and stronger, and you can literally see that as you turn the pages, and the ending.  Oooooh seriously, talk about a cliffhanger that isn't a cliff hanger.  I cannot wait for the second book. (Whyyy February!?)  If you have a kindle app, go get this book now.  It's only 99 cents and for what you are getting content wise it is beyond worth it!

Veined Blurb!

It could be worse for Sylva Lark. She could be dead. A coma was nothing to that. Or her family moving across country for the treatment, leaving her with a big blue mark on her back.
She can handle it.
Except the mark glows and tingles, especially whenever transition helper Atticus Plot (Attic) is close by. She suspects he’s hiding something, and when she stumbles across a torn body bearing the same spiral marking as her own, that suspicion is confirmed.
After a few shaves with death, the truth finally comes out and the battles begin.
But not all her fights are external; her biggest one is the decision she has to make between doing the right thing for world and giving up her beloved family for good.
