Laken, we're not in Kansas anymore.
I really enjoyed Ephemeral. I haven't read the Celestrial series so this world of nephilim and the different factions was new to me. It was a little confusing at first, to be honest. I wasn't sure if Laken had died in the car accident and was now in some kind of purgatory, if this was an alternate universe or she really did fall out of a tree house.
There was just so much going on in this story. Besides all the paranormal stuff, we've got major drama due to the fact that no one at Ephemeral can seem to keep it in their pants. I guess they just can't help themselves because everyone in this book is super model gorgeous. Love triangles galore, with the main one involving our heroine Laken, her first love Wes who had drowned years before and was now also attending Ephemeral, although he also seems to be an alternate version of who she remembers and Cooper, her new friend and the only one who believes she isn't just suffering from memory loss. She has always loved Wes but she is starting to fall for Coop. Laken annoyed me quite a bit going back and forth between these two boys. She would run to Cooper for everything, and right after that she would be professing her everlasting love to Wesley.
Still, this was an entertaining read that kept me turning the pages. I definitely look forward to the next book!
