The book I’m currently reading is The Dragonfly Prophecy, by Jacquelyn Castle.
SYNOPSIS - (From Goodreads)
Lexi Blane has it all. Other than the unexplained fainting spells and a lot of creepy nightmares, her destiny is exactly as she planned – damned near perfect. But an unexpected twist of fate sends William Bradford, the richest, hottest, most popular guy on campus, to fall in love with her to the point of infatuation. Now, it’s perfect. Life is good.
And just like that – her world crumbles to pieces.
She doesn’t remember the horrible accident and no one alive remembers William. As she tries to decipher what is real and what her genius mind created, she learns that nothing is ever what it seems and her friends know a lot more than they say.
Chace, Lexi’s childhood playmate who went from geek to god over the summer, battles his own demons to help her see herself for who and what she really is. Emotions run wild and Lexi finds herself in a predicament where one wrong choice could mean the end of the world. Will Lexi choose her path of destiny – or will her destiny choose her?
Right now, I think it’s too early to tell whether or not I’m liking The Dragonfly Prophecy. I was in deep confusion until maybe I hit 40 pages of the book. I didn’t understand what was going on exactly. To this point I’m still trying to grasp what’s really going on with Lexi.
One thing that I was really disappointed with was Jacquelyn Castle’s mention of the “Kings” concert Lexi had gone to with her friend. As I read more into the paragraph, Castle mentioned the song “I Could Use Somebody“. Then I immediately thought of The Kings of Leon. I don’t know if the errors had to do with legal rights, but with me being a pretty big fan of The Kings of Leon, the mistakes saddened me.
I plan to keep on reading the novel, hoping that there won’t be anymore confusion with the story line or band names and songs.
QUOTE FROM PAGE 100
“I took every drop of will and determination I could gather and focused on the picture of the horse across the room. I was already a pro at this technique, given my medical history. My mind opened and the energy invaded my body, which made me feel warm and tingly. It didn’t hurt, though. It just felt strange. Almost like I was floating in a rainbow that smelled like strawberries, with puppies running around my feet. Wherever I was, I felt happy. And then the picture of the horse came back into focus.”
