Suddenly she is captivated by a boy who seems to be the source of all of her problems and struggling to rescue her best friend from a foreign prison.

Reckless is an intricate story of mystery, adventure, magic and love. Eden Matthews is an unlikely heroine set on a path to save the world and her loved ones before its too late

My Review
I loved, loved, LOVED this book!

Reckless Magic is a YA Paranormal that should be read by everyone remotely interested in this genre!  The characters are well developed and well written.  I judge books by how they make me feel while I read them.  I read Reckless Magic at every opportunity:  in bed, while I was making dinner, riding in the car – could not put it down!!  Reckless Magic made me laugh out loud at 2am (my husband wasn’t thrilled), it made me tear up toward the end and the whole way through I was rooting for the main character.  What more could anyone want?

I hate to give away the book, but it is about a girl who has been raised “human” only to find out she is Immortal and not just any Immortal, one that the whole Immortal Community has been waiting for.  She falls madly in love with exactly the wrong person.  It wasn’t a love-at-first sight, it was gradual and felt real.

Congratulations, Rachel Higginson on a fabulously written story.  I am your newest fan!  I’ve already purchased the rest of the series and cannot wait to leap into it!  Thank you so much for the great story!
