Review - Rae of Hope by W.J. May

Title and Author: Rae of Hope by W.J. May
Publisher: Mitchell Morris Publishing
Publication Date: September 5th, 2011
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal

How hard do you have to shake a family tree to find out the truth of the past?

Fifteen-year-old Rae Kerrigan has never questioned her family’s history. That is until she accepted a scholarship to Guilder Boarding School in England. Guilder is a very unique, gifted school.
Rae has no idea what she is getting herself into or that her family’s past is going to come back and taunt her. She learns she is part of an unparalleled group of individuals who become marked with a unique tattoo (tatù) on their sixteenth birthday. The tatù enables them to have supernatural powers particular to the shape of their marking.
Both her parents were marked though Rae never knew, as they passed away when she was young and never told her. Learning about her family’s past, her evil father and sacrificial mother, Rae needs to decide if there is a ray of hope for her own life.

I received this book from the author in exchange of an honest review and Era of Hope is a very interesting story.
Even after 20 years, Rae can’t remember what started the fire that took the lives of her parents.  Now, after she is accepted into the Guilder Boarding School she hopes all her questions will finally be answered. She soon realizes that Guilder is not an ordinary boarding school. In fact, it is a school for those who have supernatural powers and gifts where everyone receives a tattoo after they turn 16.
She quickly discovers her parents had powers as well and the question of what exactly what gifts she inherited from them quickly arises.
I really enjoyed this book and was intrigued by the story. The story is exciting and includes a few good twists.
The characters in this book are very likeable and I found it very easy to relate to Rae. Even though she can be a little insecure at times, she’s very strong. Devon is great as well, very sweet and dreamy.
I thought Rae of Hope was a well-written book with a very interesting and gripping story. The characters are great and so are the plot and its twists.
I think any Young Adult Paranormal fan will definitely be able to enjoy this book.

Rating: Worth Your Time (4 Stars)
