Description

Following the death of her parents, Eren Donovan moves to Spruce Knoll to live with an aunt she's never met. Little does Eren know, the entire population are channelers-magical people who immigrated there when they were driven out of their homelands. Channelers are tied to the fate of the world, and as it slowly dies, they are going extinct-and they alone have the power to save the earth. Soon, Eren learns she not only lives among them, but she is one. When she meets local boy Aiden, his charm convinces her that being a channeler may not be all bad though. As Eren and Aiden's relationship develops, so too does a mystery in Spruce Knoll. The town holds many secrets-and many dangers. It soon becomes apparent that the untimely death of Eren's parents was no accident and that her life might be in danger too. Only time will tell if Eren can embrace her unwanted power and protect the only family she has left.

Can I start by saying that I love the name 'Spruce Knoll'? At first I thought that it was just weird! A place called Spruce Knoll! But by the end of the book -- I love it. Before I tell you why, let me tell you a bit more about the book and the storyline. The story revolves around Eren and Aiden. Eren, whose parents are recently killed, moves to Spruce Knoll to live with her aunt. Moving from a big city to a small town, Eren was in for surprises. But the basic difference was nothing compared to the much darker secrets of the town and the people living in it. But it is also where she first meets Aiden. Also an orphan, Aiden had grown up with his adoptive family and had a few secrets of his own. Together, Eren and Aiden work through whatever is thrown at them. The best part of the story is, not the plot and not the magic (though I loved them both) but the relationships portrayed. Eren and Aiden's relationship is totally 'dreamy' (that's the only word I can come up with to try and explain it) and Eren's relationship with her aunt is also amazing. Now coming to the second and third best parts of the story, the plot is just amazing and so is the magic described in this book. It is only after coming to Spruce Knoll that Eren realizes that she has magical ability. I love the way Heather has developed her character and portrayed her dealing with this 'gift/ability'. Besides the protagonists, the author has also created a few very lovable characters - like Sylvia and Fane. I had started reading this book with the thought - a place called 'Spruce Knoll' - seriously? But now I love it simply because it has grown on me along with the characters and the plot of the book. It's unique and special, just like the book!show more
