Review of Swift by Heather London

Meredith Martin is being hunted by evil, for something she is destined to become, but knows nothing about.

After graduating from high school, Meredith is ready to leave the place that has been a constant reminder of what happened to her as a child. She was just eight years old when her family died in a mysterious car accident, taking the secret of her destiny with them. It’s not until a new family moves to town that she realizes leaving may not be as easy as she once thought.

Meredith feels an instant connection towards the Harpers, especially the good-looking, mysterious Blake and his overly friendly sister, Abby. After a series of bizarre events that happen too often to be coincidence, Meredith begins to realize that she is at the center of something larger than herself—possibly the same thing that killed her parents and twin sister many years ago. Nightmarish visions and resurfacing memories push Meredith closer to Blake, leading her to discover her destiny and other buried secrets.

As Meredith tries to understand her new world, she will be put to the ultimate test, and her strength and courage will be challenged more than she ever imagined.


I received this book as part of a read to review program in Goodreads.  Ah...this book was awesome!  I adored this book.  It was a must read!
It took me a minute to get into the main character, Meredith.  I felt there could have been a little more character development, but nothing major.  Abby was my favorite character.  I loved her from the time we met her all the way until the end.  Blake wasn't too bad either:)
This was a great plot that kept me guessing.  I knew at the beginning that something was going to happen soon, but it took a while to happen.  That kept me in anticipation.  As soon as she meets the Harpers, things change.
The author made Mer's job at the library so dull, I wanted to skip through those parts.  Luckily, she kept them short.
I was also sad it was part of a series, because now I have to wait for the next book!  She resolves the story enough by the end of the book, but I was still left with a big cliffhanger.
This was a fabulous YA paranormal romance.  I hope you read this review and pick up your own copy of this author's shiny debut.  I give this book five glittery stars!!!

  1. Pretty cover first of all but I wonder why there is a light house in the back. The overly friendly neighbor just screams to me as a back stabber. LITERALLY. I don't trust her... Glad you liked it (:
