Haven Terra is a brainy, shy high school outcast. But everything begins to change when she turns sixteen. Along with her best friend Dante and their quiet and brilliant classmate Lance, she is awarded a prestigious internship in the big city— Chicago—and is sent to live and work at a swanky and stylish hotel under the watchful eyes of a group of gorgeous and shockingly young-looking strangers: powerful and alluring hotel owner Aurelia Brown; her second-in-command, the dashing Lucian Grove; and their stunning but aloof staff of glamazons called The Outfit.
As Haven begins falling for Lucian, she discovers that these beautiful people are not quite what they seem. With the help of a mysterious book, she uncovers a network of secret passageways from the hotel’s jazz-age past that leads her to the heart of the evil agenda of Aurelia and company: they’re in the business of buying souls. Will they succeed in wooing Haven to join them in their recruitment efforts, or will she be able to thwart this devilish set’s plans to take the souls of her classmates on prom night at the hotel?
Illuminate is an exciting saga of a teen’s first taste of independence, her experience in the lap of luxury, and her discovery she may possess strength greater than she ever knew.
First thoughts after....
I'm ready for Infatuate!
How distracted did I get?
Illuminate is a wonderful new twist on Angels and Demons! I enjoyed living in Haven's world for a day or 2 and am anxious to go back! Haven is a fun unique heroine with flaws. I love when the lead isn't perfect and strong throughout the story. The men in her life are each unique in their own right from Dante the gay bff, Lance the awkward classmate and Lucian the hottie "out of her league". I was so wrapped up in this story I had wanted to sit reading instead of going to work or do any cleaning after the kids. I highly recommend Illuminate for any YA Paranormal/Romance readers!
I give Illuminate.....
