It is said that the truth will set you free, but for Leah it kills.
Leah always knew she was different. From her extreme light sensitivity, to her ability to read people by their auric scent, she kept these differences secret.
Not even Mia, Leah's mother, knew the fullness of her daughter's differences, but she held even greater secrets to Leah's past - the truth about her father and Leah's conception.
With the escape of an old foe, Mia is too late to reveal to her daughter the thrush before Judith can exact her revenge in a wash of blood and death.
Thrown into a world unheard of, Leah discovers that she is not alone in keeping her secrets. That there are people from her parent's past who would die to protect her. If only she knew why.
Raine, placed as her protector, hides deadly secrets of his own. Drawn to each other, Leah and Raine must uncover the truth before one or both are killed.

This was sucha delight to read! Right from the first page the author Dawn Kirby had me hooked. For those who have read it you'll know what I mean when I say the opening scene is rather intense and for those of you who haven't had the pleaure of reading Secrets yet you'll just have to go buy it to find out what I'm talking about.
I really liked how Dawn Kirby wrote Secrets because the whole novel was full of twist and turns as more and more things came to to light and more facts were revealed about Leah and her family. I loved that about the book because it kept me interested. There was always something new that kept me wanting to read more and more.
The characters were also really well contrived and I really liked Leah for the most part but sometimes she got on my nerves a little but thats a good thing. I love when authors give characters traits that evoke feelings you would get for real people. Another thing that I enjoyed about the book was the descriptive way that Dawn Kirby created the whole book.
All in all this was a great book from a new and emerging talent in the writing world. I really enjoyed reading Leah's story and I would have no problem recommending this book to anyone who is a fan of YA romance with a supernatural twist in it. I do have to warn you though that this book is for the older YA readers because of some more mature scenes and subject matter.
For me the book provided a great escape while I was at the cottage this past weekend. If you're looking for a book that will suck you in, this might just be one that you have to check out!
