IN SEARCH OF THE MEANING OF DEATH, SHE’LL FIND THE MEANING OF LIFE.
The Ceruleans: mere mortals infused with power over life and death. Five books; one question: If the might of the heavens were in your hands, would you be sinner or saint?
Seventeen-year-old Scarlett Blake is haunted by death. Her estranged sister has made the ultimate dramatic exit. Running away from school, joining a surfing fraternity, partying hard: that sounds like Sienna. Butsuicide? It makes no sense.
Following in her sister’s footsteps, Scarlett comes to an isolated English cove with grand plans to uncover the truth. Alone. But she hasn’t reckoned on meeting two boys who are determined to help her. Luke: the blue-eyed surfer who’ll see the real Scarlett, who’ll challenge her, who’ll save her. And Jude: the elusive drifter with a knack for turning up whenever Scarlett’s in need.
As Scarlett’s quest for the truth unravels, so too does her grip on reality as she’s always known it. Because there’s something strange going on in this little cove. A dead magpie circles the skies. A dead deer watches from the undergrowth. Hands glow with light. Warmth. Power.
What transpires is a summer of discovery. Of what it means to conquer fear. To fall in love. To choose life. To choose death.
To believe the impossible.

It was good. Easy to understand. It’s all from one POV: Scarlet.
It was good but I’m a bit disappointed.
I was expecting so much more to happen. I mean while you read there are weird things but they are just small and quickly are left behind. I was reading and expecting more weird things to happen. Most of the story seemed just of a girl trying to find out why her sister killed herself and her relationship with Luke and Cara. Most of it was like reading a normal life. And as I said before I was expecting more. However, towards the end of the book it was getting more interesting, with more mystery and more easy and fast to read. The characters are great. It was just a slow story to read. However I kept reading it because the relationships in this book are great!
I would like to see where the story goes on, how this story continues because the end was really kind of surprising and it leaves you wanting to know more.
I almost forgot this. In some point of the book I thought there was going to be a love triangle, I was so sure and I’m so glad that didn’t happen. Last, I loved how it included other things I like, for example The Tudors 😀
•Scarlet: At the beginning I didn’t like her that much but then towards the end of the book I liked her more. She can be a great character. Maybe I should read more of her to think just one thing, she has potential.
•Luke: I loved him. He was sweet, he understood Scarlet a lot, he is her match and I love that. He’s just a great guy. He is there when you need him but he won’t push you into something you don’t want. He is great.
•Cara: She is just like energy. I imagined this girl just with so much energy that almost seems like she is everywhere. She was great, I think a bit overwhelming but great anyway.
•Jude: The word for him is ‘mystery’. Who is he? His personality, what he likes and don’t. He is there, he is important but we don’t now him. I think that is kind of great too because I feel in the next books he is a lot more and you get to know him better.
This book was good, it disappointed me a little but maybe the other books will get better and better. My advice: give an opportunity to this book and see if you like it or not. And don’t forget about Luke because he is awesome!
“-Er…Henry Cavill ” I said finally “And Jonathan Rhys Meyers’
‘-Superman and the dad in City of Bones?’
‘But also Charles Brandon and Henry the Eighth in The Tudors.’
‘You picked a history degree so you could ogle hot men on TV shows?’
‘That. Is. A. BRILLANT. Plan.”
About the author:
Once upon a time a little girl told her grandmother that when she grew up she wanted to be a writer. Or a lollipop lady. Or a fairy princess fireman. ‘Write, Megan,’ her grandmother advised. So that’s what she did.
Thirty-odd years later, Megan is a professional writer and published author by day, and an indie novelist by night. Her fiction – young adult romance with soul ¬– recently earned her the SPR’s Independent Woman Author of the Year award.
Megan grew up in the Royal County, a hop, skip and a (very long) jump from Windsor Castle, but these days she makes her home in Robin Hood’s county, Nottingham. She lives with her husband, a proud Scot who occasionally kicks back in a kilt; her son, a budding artist with the soul of a palaeontologist; and her baby daughter, a pan-and-spoon drummer who sings in her sleep. When she’s not writing, you’ll find Megan walking someplace green, reading by the fire, or creating carnage in the kitchen as she pursues her impossible dream: of baking something edible.
