Hey everyone! Welcome to my tour stop for the Eventide Tour hosted by YA Bound Book Tours. This book was absolutely fascinating with it's amazing magical elements and mythology it was really cool! One quick note before I get into the review, I'm sorry if this review is a bit shorter than usual but it's really late right now as I'm writing this (you can't tell cause I'm scheduling the post) and I can barely stay awake...probably shouldn't have waited until last minute to read/review...oops? But still, let's get into the review!

Eventide follows a girl named Devon who killed her best friend Rachael in a car accident. After that, she finds herself seeing Rachael everywhere and finds out that her best friend wasn't killed, she was kidnapped by faeries. And Devon is going to do everything she can to get her friend back.

Devon was a fantastic main character. Not only was it how she was acted, but it was how she was crafted as a character. Actually, all the characters were amazing. It was how Christine A. Riley wrote those characters that makes each one of them stand out to you as the reader. It did not take long before I became emotionally attached to Devon and felt her pain, grief, and determination. To take it a step further, I had wells under my eyes are numerous points. 

The world itself is fascinating with its interwoven story lines of Celtic mythology and lore. I went through a phase where I was completely obsessed with Celtic mythology and just seeing it in a book as opposed to the popular Greek mythology made me so happy in itself. Each creature we meet was so vividly described that you could picture them in your head and it felt like watching the scene play out in front of you. I also loved how suspenseful the plot was, I literally could not stop swiping the pages (e-book) and it had my jumping at moments. The suspense was so wonderfully done and the climax will leave you breathless and stunned.

Before I wrap it up, let's mention Jonah. He was adorable and such a great character. There are moments though where you want to throw stuff at him or slap some reality into him because he is quite the oblivious person. However, I loved his relationship with Devon. They are so cute together, I can't get enough of the feels!

Alright, that's it for this review. Sorry about it being so short, I promise I'll make it up to you! Thanks so much for reading and I'll see you next time :)
