Sexy, dark and exciting, NYMPHS is the novel of the smash-hit international TV series. Perfect for fans of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS.
Meet the nymphs: living among us, they’re forever young, dangerously seductive – and ever so deadly…
A young man is found dead after a college party in a small town. His body bears the marks of a brutal attack, but police are mystified as to the actual cause of death.
Afterwards, student Didi Tiensuu is approached by two mysterious women. Beautiful and other-worldly, they have come to warn her she is in danger. And to live, she must for ever leave her old life behind.
There are evil forces at work that mere mortals can never comprehend. And Didi is about to discover her past is a lie. The night of reckoning is coming and the choice is hers. Reject her fate. Or accept her destiny and embrace her power..
What a creative and compelling read!
Nymphs is simply fantastic. Fun, innovative and fresh — exactly what the YA genre needs. Each character is so well rounded that at times it feels like the dialogue is just friends chatting around you.
I loved the world building and location of the story. It sprung from the pages and became alive. Everything felt so real. The descriptors used were almost poetic.
The plot itself is quite fantastical, and you guessed it — fantastic. I wish I had the opportunity to watch the television show.
It really surprised me how much my feelings towards different characters changed as the story progressed. It was a neat experience, one that a book hasn’t delivered in quite some time.
Thank you, Raincoast Books for the review copy.
