Mourning Sun by Shari Richardson

I should have known when he walked into my life that things would never be the same. Hadn't I dreamed of him and the things he'd done before I was born? If only he weren't so fascinating, so beautiful, so much more than any other guy. Maybe then I could walk away.

Mairin Cote is a magnet for weird. Her dreams come true, she can see auras and her mother is in love with an angel. Now the monsters are finding her too. Vampires, demigods and werepanthers have flocked to this small town girl who must find a way to keep her family safe, love the man of her dreams, and navigate the shark-infested waters of Highland Home High School.

I decided to read this book after Reading the latest addition to the series in a Blog Tour, because I wanted to get to know where the book started and the characters.

This book had the same feel as the last book "Nine Lives" did. The only difference was that this was more of an introductory then anything else and it gave me a feel of the main character's and their background where as the last book hasn't.

I enjoyed the different elements deployed in this book. There was a lot going on and I felt it was still rushed but it was still good. This book, despite being a fast read, (I read it right after Nine Lives and Finished it that night.) Is well worth it because I got to see how it all started out. I am not sure if I would have finished the series if I had started with the first book, It is good but as fast as it is, it took away from it for me.

Memorable Quotes:
1. "I will see you in the morning Mairin," Mathias said after the bell had rung. Before I could stop myself, I blurted out "Why?"
Mathias smiled at me and my heart skipped erratically in my chest." Because I am not strong enough to deny myself your company."

2. Mathias was the sun and through his light the shadows were chased away and I was left revealed.

3. He watched me as if I were his sun.

4. "I'm a planet, orbiting my sun," He whispered, forcing me to step closer to hear him. "I am only Mathias."

5."Because you are my sun. You are the light of my life and you are the voice that calls me from my dreams."
