This was a very good book. I did laughed a lot with this book, and I
liked Sin a lot. I loved him! but dint much liked what he did almost
till the end, but he still is awesome! =)
Sin is coming... Prepare to Swoon. Torn from her native New York City
and dumped in the land of cookie-cutter preps, Candice is resigned to
accept her posh, dull fate. Nothing ever happens in Swoon,
Connecticut...until Dice's perfect, privileged cousin Penelope nearly
dies in a fall from an old tree, and her spirit intertwines with that of
a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblood Powers. His mission? Revenge.
And while Pen is oblivious to the possession, Dice is all too aware of
Sin. She's intensely drawn to himbut not at all crazy about the havoc
he's wreaking. Determined to exorcise the demon, Dice accidentally sets
Sin loose, gives him flesh, makes him formidable. Now she must destroy
an even more potentand irresistibleadversary, before the whole town
succumbs to Sin's will. Only trouble is, she's in love with him. What
do you do when the boy of your dreams is too bad to be true?
Shockingly different from other young adult paranormal romance books, SWOON is a great book to read. When Dice realizes that something is wrong with her cousin, something is different from how she usually acts, she begins to believe that a possession is in play. Possession as in ghost who has taken over her cousin's body. Able to force the ghost into a human form through touch, Dice questions him, his motives, and learns of a dark past for which Sinclair, also known as Sin, wishes to have revenge against, only the people he wishes to harm are Dice's friends and neighbors.
As the story progresses, Dice begins to fall in love with Sin and ultimately makes the grave mistake of trusting him. Through a series of dark events, Sin takes on a human form, the most beautiful human in all of their small town of Swoon. With girls after his every move, Sin continues the life that he had in the past, while carefully arranging the pieces for his game of revenge. Dice is clouded by her love for Sin and has trouble seeing what it truly happening, and stopping what that is.
Though it had it's confusing moments, everything in SWOON worked out to be alright in the end. The seams were ironed straight and the book left me with a feeling of completeness, as though the book was truly over. The characters were greatly developed and I enjoyed their common quirks, seeming to make them more real. A book for fantasy, sci-fi, and romance readers alike, SWOON is a great read for any time of the year.
