Scintillate (The Light Key Trilogy #1) by Tracy Clark
Publisher: Entangled: Teen
Publication: February 4th, 2014
A mighty flame follows a tiny spark.
Cora Sandoval’s mother disappeared when she was five and they were living in Ireland. Since then, her dad has been more than overprotective, and Cora is beginning to chafe under his confines. But even more troubling is the colorful light she suddenly sees around people. Everyone, that is, except herself—instead, she glows a brilliant, sparkling silver.
As she realizes the danger associated with these strange auras, Cora is inexplicably drawn to Finn, a gorgeous Irish exchange student who makes her feel safe. Their attraction is instant, magnetic, and primal—but her father disapproves, and Finn’s mother orders him home to Ireland upon hearing he’s fallen in love. After a fight with her father, Cora flees to Ireland, both to follow Finn and to look for her missing mother.
There she meets another silver-haloed person and discovers the meaning of her newfound powers and their role in a conspiracy spanning centuries—one that could change mankind forever…and end her life.
Scintillate is the first book in this lush and exciting new trilogy, full of romance, adventure and metaphysical mystery.
Hi guys! This is Saleana here to tell you all about Scintillate by Tracy Clark! I'm very excited to be sharing this with you because the book comes out soon! Look for it in local bookstores on February 4th!
Special thanks to Jaime Arnold from Entangled Publishing for letting me review this copy early.
The cover of this is gorgeous! The key ties into the plot later on, which is nice. I don't like it when book covers are gorgeous, only to learn that the cover art has little or nothing to do with the story.
Cora is our main female character and she's your average girl, until she starts to see auras. Then enters Finn, the Irish exchange student that's hotter than sin. My only problem with their relationship was that sometimes it seemed strained, or like there was going to be a plot twist somewhere. Maybe I read into it too much, but Finn...there's something a little fishy about him. And I didn't like how Cora doesn't listen to her instincts at first when she feels uncomfortable around Finn, but ignores it because he's good looking. Ah well.
I really enjoyed reading this book, there was lots of mystery, romance and a pretty good story line. I highly recommend this!
