This book is one of the book that I got from the Teen Read. I read the book summary and it was great and interest me into reading it so i got it and it wasrealy great. So I don't have to feel bad for getting it. :D Pia and Eio seem to be a great couple, though Pia is a Immortal and Eio is a human. But they are really great together.

At first when I was helping the librarian setting up the books i saw it and wasn't that interested in it, but when I read the summary I was like OMG! This book is kind of good. So I one of the two copy in the Teen Read. I was so happy that I went to the Teen Read since I got a lot of books :3  I LOVE BOOKS<3  It's like once I enter Middle school or I should say Eighth Grade when my friends introduce me to the world of library, I begin to read a lot of books and buying books from Barnes and Nobles. Hehehehehehe.
