Broken Forest by Eliza Tilton (ReRead!)

Broken Forest (Daath Chronicles, #1)Book Description:
Hopeless he'll never be more than the boy who didn't save his brother, 17-year-old Avikar accepts his life as the family stable boy, trying to forget the past. But when his sister, Jeslyn, is kidnapped, the thought of losing another sibling catapults him on a desperate quest. With his best friend by his side, and using the tracking skills he learned from his father, he discovers Jeslyn has been taken, kidnapped by one Lucino, the young lord of Daath, a mystical place thought only to exist in fables.

And Lucino has plans for Jeslyn.

His shape-shifting brethren feed off the auras of humans, and Jeslyn's golden hue is exactly what Lucino needs to increase his power. The longer it takes Avikar to reach her, the more entranced she becomes with Lucino's world, and the harder it will be for Avikar to set her free.

He failed his family once. He won't fail again.

My Thoughts:
This is a re-read for me.  I read this book when it first came out and now there is a whole set of books about Daath!  I still really enjoyed this and getting to know these characters all over again.  Jeslyn is kidnapped and her brother and boyfriend are determined to find her and bring her home.  Her brother, Avikar has issues from losing his little brother and is not going to lose Jeslyn too.  
The ones who kidnapped Jeslyn take her to Daath, a place that was thought to be a myth.  There she meets the prince, Lucino, and gets used to the lifestyle, though the people there are strange.  Avikar and his group are fighting through all the obsticles that get in their way to get to Jeslyn because they know something that she doesn't. Lucino isn't human.
It was a 4/5 for me.  Can't wait to read the next book :) 

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
