In an Oyster Shell – A very creative and interesting story that leaves you wanting more.
The Pearls – Having two teenage girls with supernatural abilities is interesting enough. Add guardians and angels to the mix and you have yourself a very interesting story. The plot was well thought out and executed. This book is the beginning of the series and I think I would like to continue on with the next book.
The paranormal aspect to the book was interesting. Having two girls with abilities with destinies to be good or not was intriguing. The path that Brenna chooses is very surprising. It had me reading with bated breath.
The characters were well-developed and distinctive. I really got emotionally tied to the girls especially Brenna. The supporting characters were distinctive and played a vital role in moving the story along.
The Sand – It was a good book.
