Book review: Winter´s Shadow by M.J Hearle

Author: M.J. Hearle
Title: Winter´s Shadow
Genre: Young Adult, supernatural romance
Series: Book 1 (Author is currently working on the squeal "Winter´s Light")
My rating
On the cover:

Blake Duchamp... 

He's all that Winter Adams can think of. Ever since their fateful meeting at Pilgrim's Lament. Ever since he looked at her with those emerald eyes. Ever since he saved her life. But Blake isn't all that he seems. There is a strangeness about him, something dark and otherworldly. Something dangerous. In his attic is a secret he would kill to defend, but Winter seems to have a special ability to make him forget his duty. And he is her only protection against the gathering darkness. The only problem is, to protect Winter, Blake must risk exposing her to an even greater danger. Himself.

My thoughts:
This was an awesome book! 
I loved Winter´s character and I love her name. That was a really cool idea. She is strong even though I get the feeling she does not think so and she is also very shy and that is such a lovely combination.The story is intense and is happening under just a short time but so much is happening during that time. Blake is very interesting and I have never read about anything like him before. I had no guess at all what it was about him and really liked that mystery. It is fun to read something different when so many writes about roughly the same sort of supernatural beings like angels, vampires and the like.  In short, I really enjoyed this book and I can´t wait for the squeal.
