Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, housed in a Gothic mansion on the bleak northern moors, is elite, expensive, and unwelcoming. When Evie Johnson is torn away from her home by the sea to become the newest scholarship student, she is more isolated than she could have dreamed. Strict teachers, snobbish students, and the oppressive atmosphere of Wyldcliffe leave Evie drowning in loneliness.

Evie's only lifeline is Sebastian, a rebellious, mocking, dangerously attractive young man she meets by chance. As Evie's feelings for Sebastian grow with each secret meeting, she starts to fear that he is hiding something about his past. And she is haunted by glimpses of a strange, ghostly girl—a girl who is so eerily like Evie, she could be a sister. Evie is slowly drawn into a tangled web of past and present that she cannot control. And as the extraordinary, elemental forces of Wyldcliffe rise up like the mighty sea, Evie is faced with an astounding truth about Sebastian, and her own incredible fate.

Gillian Shields's electrifying tale will dazzle readers with suspense, mysticism, and romance.

    " I was skeptical at first since I don't usually read romances. I LOOOOOVVVVEEEDDD it! It was very good and I loved how the author worded things and her writing style too. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Allysa | 1/10/2014

    " The story had a really promising beginning but it fell flat a few chapters in. I did not care about Evie and I had to force myself to finish this book, continually hoping that it would get better as the story dragged on. It never did and I regret purchasing this book and wasting hours of my life reading it. "

    " I was really disappointed in this book. I was expecting a lot more. It just seemed to drag on an didn't give the reader anything. Then I read Hex Hall and it was everything I thought this book would be (yes I'm plugging another book in this review). "

    " When I bought this book, I was looking for a quick and fun read...but guess what? another freaking series. There were really no surprises in the book and it ended just like I thought after I found out it was the beginning of another series. It was just okay for me. I won't be rushing out to find book 2. "

    " When i first started reading this book i was sucked in, i couldnt stop reading it. But in the middle of the book it got dell and i thought i would have to give it only four stars but it quickly got exciting again.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenny | 9/9/2012

    " This is a dark, romantic, suspenseful story. I love how the author adds diary entries of Lady Agnes who plays a huge part in the story through Sebastian. Would definitely recommends to people who like dark, out of this world type books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amie | 5/28/2012

    " This book was very simply written and kind of boring. The basic idea was interesting but I felt so much more could have been done with it. Undecided if I will read the sequel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharkcrow | 12/21/2011

    " I wanted to love this, but I just feel a bit meh about it. I really didnt like the audiobook narrator, so I might give this one another go at some point. I just didn't feel any real attachment to Evie or Sebastian. That bing said, there were a lot of great elements in the story.... I don't know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 11/30/2011

    " Rollercoaster of events and flashbacks and crazy weird things going on witha mysterious man. Kind of not my thing, but it was a good enough book that it kept me turning the pages and things were predictable in some parts but not so much in others. Decent book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chels | 4/26/2011

    " I liked this book better than the first one. I think it's because I adjusted to the author's style. Shields is a really good author, I think most people would like her books. The end of Betrayal was really satisfying, I hope she writes more books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 3/30/2011

    " I did not like the ending!!! She went through all of that just to sent him to his death and to be with another!!! I don't like that and don't buy it. What girl that much in love would just willing let him go forever!!!! They better get together again in the last book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mlpmom | 3/9/2011

    " I think this was a fitting conclusion to Evie and Sebastian's life and love for one another. While it had a bitter sweet ending it was beautiful and full of hope and promise. Very well done. "
