WOW.. this was one heck of an ending to a gripping trilogy. Ms. Austin is a very talented story teller. She grabbed me from Between Dreams (book 1) and held on until the last sentence of this book.
Also in The Pendant series...

This was a great book. I had no idea what to expect when I started reading it. A roller coaster ride is what I got! At first I thought, Ok, girl, rockstar boyfriend, yeah well.. that is not what I got!When Sidney discovers a necklace left behind by her deceased mother, her world starts to change and odd things start to happen. Could these oddities possibly be linked to the necklace?
This is part one of a trilogy and should definitely be read in order. And yes, there is a cliffhanger--I am anxiously awaiting part two!
