Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she’s seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.
As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.
And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia’s not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.
Such a captivating read. It was maddening, confusing and just … wonderful. The start was a little rocky. Something inside me rebelled against all the restrictions Theia had to deal with.
For the first part, up until I find out what Haden is, the book was very Alice in Wonderland-esque. I felt lost and confused, just following Theia as she searched for answers. Then as some questions get answered, more pop up. Rather than being frustrated, I was intrigued and more drawn into the world Hayes created.
By the end I was happily satisfied by the answers provided and the story’s end. In fact, I was bursting with happy energy of having read such a good book. But, of course, “Falling Under” is just the first book. I look forward to the the next installment, though, and hope it’s just as enthralling.
A recommended read for anyone who doesn’t mind more than a little confusion and a whole lot of romance. It’s a great read for any YA paranormal romance fan.
