achingly familiar that Abby is drawn to him like he's a missing piece of her
Abby can discover the reason for her feelings toward Kye, the darkness catches
up to her and she is forced to flee again. But this time she's not just

life at stake. (Goodreads)
Praise for DESCENDANT:
"A hot new spin on paranormal, Descendant is
refreshingly imaginative and powerful. I can't decide which was best -- piecing
together Abby's sinister past or keeping up with her heartbreaking future. If
you like your YA laced with melt-my-heart romance and a good helping of
heart-pounding suspense, you'll love this book!" -- Michelle Davidson
Argyle, author of The Breakaway
Giles has crafted a story that breathes from the pages. Her characters are
authentic, the action intense, with powerful emotions that will keep Descendant on your mind long after the book ends. Open your eyes
to another facet of our world in Descendant and you'll be sucked into an
adventure with Abby and Kye, that will explore the power of gifts, courage, and
love. With top-notch writing, Giles has crafted a story that breathes from the
pages." --Rachelle J. Christensen, award-winning author of Wrong
Number and Caller ID
Giles brings a fresh new voice and flawless writing technique to the world of
Young Adult fiction. I was swept away to another place and never wanted to come
back." --Tristi Pinkston, author of Turning Pages and the Secret Sisters mystery series
debut novel delivers in all the right ways, with heart-pounding action and a
delicious romance that sweeps centuries. I loved it!" --Elana Johnson,
author of Possession and Surrender
"I love you too. Whatever happens, I'll love you till the day I die."
He swears, his arm thightening around me. "This is impossible. I can't love you the way I do, but I can't help it. You can't be with me here, but you are."
Shock steals my breath when I look up and meet the clear blue of the most perfect eyes I've ever seen. The eyes I love. "You're alive."
First of all I want to say that the book was wonderful. When I started I thought it will be a boring story, but after that,getting deeper the book started to catch me little by little. Abby looked like an innocent girl at the beginning of the book, but it really surprised me how she was able to manage some sticky situations. Her relationship with Kye was a little bit odd for me and I didn't like the fact that they fell in love with each other so quickly. The book became really interesting when new kind of paranormal things appear such as spirits, demons and dragons. I totally love dragons and that was a blowing thing for me that boosted me to read the book.
That's one of the parts I like it the most. From a simple death in a normal world everything changed. Probably I would have likes the balance between light and dark to be more equal cause Abby left me the impression that she was fading slowly into the darkness. However, having Kye next to her helped her a lot and they got out from the most awful situations. The end was as expected somehow I still loved it. A lot of emotions were sent to me and that's why Descendant is a good book.
