Crystallum - Laney McMann

Kadence Sparrow has just moved. Again. At least Boulder should be her last stop for a bit. With her father's admonitions about not revealing her true self to anyone ringing in her ears, Kade starts her senior year of HS. But her new friends are making that difficult.


Author Laney McMann starts her newest book series with a bang. Crystallum brings a new twist to the eternal struggle between heaven and hell.


The main characters are your usual HS stereotypes; the new girl, the bad/misunderstood boy, the clique of girls the new girl falls into. The characters had some twists made to them though, which made the story much more enjoyable. The pacing was great, several twists and turns kept the pages turning, and a few scenes caused some laughter. 


I quite enjoyed this book, and am very much looking forward to the next book in the series. I will also pick up Ms. McMann's other trilogy, the Fire Born novels. In the interest of full disclosure, I did receive an ARC of this book for a review.
