About the book:
The doctors have told Kay that she will die before she reaches her eighteenth birthday. Her mother’s determination to save her life leads them to a move outside of Asheville, NC to a new set of cancer specialists in the hopes to help her. But it’s not what Kay and her Mom find in the doctor’s offices in Asheville that lead them on the journey to save her before time runs out. It’s what Kay finds in the woods outside of Asheville, and an inhumanly gorgeous guy named Ryan, instead.
Myths and fairy tales come to life before Kay’s eyes, bringing her closer to the ultimate cure if she can stay alive long enough to get there. And if the cancer doesn’t kill her before she finds the cure the secrets her mother has hidden from her may be the beginning of the end.

My thoughts:

This is by far one of the best books I´ve read so far this year! It is well worth your time to read. I was kind of surprised that this book was this amazing and I was even more surprised at the content. I would never in a million years have guessed the turn outs in this one! If you want something who will surprise you and keep you guessing then this is a book for you. And a big warning if you do not like cliff hangers because OMG!! I want to read book two like yesterday if possible please!!! It was quite a while since I´ve been this involved in a book! I lived in it, I breathed it  and I slept in it! There was just no possible way not to.

I love the characters in this book both the ones you know about from the blurb but also a few surprise characters that will be introduced along the way and wow are one of them a mystery all though I think I have figured out who she might be?
Kay is amazing! She is fighting against cancer and still managed to enjoy life. She has come to terms with that she will not survive this but even so she won´t give up hope and I love that about her. Ryan is such a great guy and then we have Nick who will spice it up a bit and complicate things for Kay.

There are so many question marks when you are done with this book it is impossible to let it go! It will stay with you until the questions are answered!
This book contains a lot of romance as it should but also some action and humor to make this book so amazing you will read until your eyes bleed!

I'm on a YA break but this book has a lot of stuff about it that I can relate to. I love Asheville, I went there last spring and cancer is something I feel strongly about not to mention the fantasy element this has. Fab review.

P.S. I am a fan of the cover art, it's so gorgeous!
