Review: Betwixt by Tara Bray Smith


I just finished reading Betwixt by Tara Bray Smith. I’ve gotta say, it was one of the best books I’ve read in quite awhile. I’m a big fan of young adult novels and fantasy and this book had a good mix of both worlds.

From back cover:

Betwixt by Tara Bray Smith “For three seventeen year olds, dark mystery has always lurked at the corner of the eyes and the edge of sleep. Beautiful Morgan D’Amici wakes in her meager home, with blood under her fingernails. Paintings come alive under Ondine Mason’s violet-eyed gaze. Haunted runaway Nix Saint-Michael sees halos of light around people about to die. At a secret summer rave in the woods, the three teenagers learn of their true origins and their uncertain, intertwined destinies. Riveting, unflinching and beautiful, Betwixt is as complex and compelling as any ordinary reality.”

This is Tara Bray Smith’s first novel for young adults. The book is not that surprising; you know what is going to happen pretty much, but this doesn’t lessen its impact. But the book does end at a bit of cliffhanger and I’m anxious to read the next book. Unfortunately Betwixt won’t be out in bookstores until September 2007, so the next book is a long ways off.
