Book Review: Sojourner (Book 1) - Maria Rachel Hooley

Synopsis - Seventeen year old Elizabeth Moon has been dreaming of her murder her entire life, and in those dreams, a dark presence is there, watching.  When she returns home to Hauser's Landing, the very place her father disappeared, she comes in contact with a gorgeous boy named Lev Walker, and it's not long before she's falling in love.  But there's something wrong with Lev.  When she realises he's the eerie watcher in her dreams, she'll have to discover the truth.  Is he a guardian angel or a sojourner, an angel of death who has come to collect her soul?  (Taken from Goodreads)

Review - This is a lovely story about a young girl, frightened by all that is going on around her.  A beautiful love story that cannot end well, for however it ends it is not possible for Elizabeth and Lev to be together.  The book tackles the questions that young adults raise in wanting to know the truth and even, tells the reader why it is so important, even if meant well as a means of protection, the truth should be told.  Although the story is set as a paranormal romance it does tackle everyday issues in the life of a teenager, trust, love, understanding a parent's decision and making one's own choices whether right or wrong and dealing with the consequences.  A recommended read for this age group. 4*
