Blurb (from Goodreads):
Our choices seal our fate. Hannah Reed is about to learn just how important one little decision can be. Hannah's plans for a nice, quiet senior year of high school are rapidly disintegrating. It all starts when she innocently bursts in on Ethan Flynn in the change room of the clothing store where she works. Ethan's presence in Hannah's world is subtle but constant, and when he saves her life, they become linked by the workings of an ancient society and Ethan's sworn duty to protect Hannah. Working together to figure out what destiny wants with Hannah, the two of them stumble on a baffling mystery that leaves even Ethan questioning what is in store for her future. With Ethan's help, Hannah learns there is far more to this life, to her life, than she ever realized. As they attempt to untangle Hannah's unique past and emerging abilities, an unknown danger from Ethan's past looms ever closer. While racing to put together the pieces of the puzzle before it's too late, Hannah wrestles with the idea that she is anything but average, and that perhaps she is also more to Ethan than just a job. Hleo is the first book in the series with the same name. A story of destiny and how one decision can change everything. When you buy a copy of Hleo, your one decision also has the ability to change the lives of others across the globe. $2.00CAD from every copy of Hleo purchased goes towards the amazing efforts of the Because I am a Girl Education initiative. Fighting to bring literacy and safe learning resources to girls living in some of the poorest nations in this world.
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
This was a YA paranormal/fantasy story with a touch of romance.
Hannah was an interesting character, and I liked Ethan also, even if they were a little bit clueless when it came to their love lives. I actually felt quite sorry for Ryan though as it seemed like nobody wanted to go out with him.
The storyline in this was about Hannah meeting Ethan and starting a friendship with him, and slowly discovering that he was hiding some massive secrets from her. We got a bit of action, some unusual happenings, and a bit of romance too, and I liked the little twists we got thrown towards the end.
The ending to this was pretty good, and it will be interesting to see where the story goes from here.
