The Tale of Aradia was in my opinion a totally great read for all ages. I’m a huge fan of strong female characters and Aradia was strong in so many ways.
Aradia’s story actually begins with a sad start. As a baby she loses her whole family but one last attempt to save her life brought her to her life as it is now. A human family found her in a cave and adopted her as their daughter. Aradia and her parents always knew she was different but it wasn’t until they moved to Salem that she started to fit in.
Never having friends, for fear she might hurt them, Aradia was pretty much a loner, but on her first days of school she met Rhonda and felt truly at home with her and her new friends. As any new teen she was also attracted to pretty much every hot guy she saw which was weird in itself because the school had a really high amount of them around.
I loved how L.A. jones intertwined the world of the hidden with humans. There were Fae, werewolves, vampires, and shifters all together in her school but Aradia didn’t know all of this yet. She had no knowledge of this Hidden World or what she was.
I especially liked Roy. He was sweet and totally the boy next door type. He has a little bit of a crush on Aradia so of course when Aradia started to make googlie eyes on Dax he was jealous as heck. Didn’t help matters that Dax is a vampire.
Now Dax is completely opposite of Roy. he’s the bad boy Aradia can’t seem to get out of her head. Dax notices Aradia too but he’s got a hidden agenda that might put a bit of a wrinkle in their relationship.
All in all I could not put this book down between the hot guys, watching Aradia learn about the Hidden’s, and trying to solve a huge murder case I was on he edge of my seat. I recommend this book to anyone who loves mystery, paranormal reads, and a bit of jealousy. This book has all that and more.
Come and find out what Happens in the Tales of Aradia. Getting the next book right now. 🙂
