It was described as an eloquent paranormal read. The term eloquent doesn’t quite do it justice. This tale of body thieves, love, loss and magic was stirring, passionate and impressive.
I’ve always loved books that are written from different characters perspectives each chapter, and it really made sense to organize this story that way. I found the first chapter not exactly confusing, but it did make me ask quite a few questions. Who is Grace? Is Skylar is Alina’s body, or the other way around? How did magic play a role? Why are the stars and comets so important?
In other words, the first chapter did exactly what it was supposed to do. It hooked me, and I had to keep reading to find out all the answers to the questions.
It’s a great book to read aloud by the way – so the term eloquent in that sense really works. I have a few adult couple friends that always read to each other, and I’ve recommended this book as lends itself really well to the spoke word.
It’s not all magic and fun though.
Hook did a great job of exploring a really complicated love triangle (or square?) between Skylar, Alina, Darren and Wells. I guess that’s more like two love triangles – or perhaps a love star.
Grace’s role in the book was also really intriguing. I think I looked forward to her chapters best, and it was her story line that really kept me reading.
Overall, I really enjoyed the read. There are definitely people I’d recommend it to, and while I wouldn’t recommend it to hard core sci-fi fans, I think this book has many great qualities. It’s well written, definitely eloquent, and tells a story that keeps you reading right until the end.

About the book: Grace is the only one who remembers the truth—that comets are the source of extraordinary destinies. Since their last night together, all memory of their comets and their old powers has abandoned Skylar and Alina. All that is left is Alina’s enduring envy for everything Skylar touches, and Alina’s sudden ability to wake up inside of Skylar’s body, if only for a few minutes.
After Alina finally forces her will and switches bodies with Skylar, harsh realities surface. The holes in Skylar’s relationship with Darren are exposed, and Skylar herself becomes seduced by the idea of living two lives at once, and loving two men at once.
Grace might be able to save them, but everything Skylar and Alina know about love has to change. When their comets return, these three women must choose their fate once more.Get Skylar Wishes through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
