Tania's heart belongs to Orlando. Nothing can rip them apart. Until the seduction begins in a flurry of glamour and magic, music and parties all orchestrated by the mysterious and mesmerising Zoran, an iconic rock star who has retired to a remote ranch in the nearby mountains. And there Tania meets the dark side. Can she resist temptation?
This story was different, with a cult theme it seems to evoke various sensations. One more than others, creepy. You don't really know what's going to happen next, and when it does, it wasn't what you were expecting. You think it's going to go the usual YA way, it doesn't though.
We get introduced to Tania, a girl who is seemingly in love, along with her friends, all having a partner. A party is the event where the book really starts, you would think the three girls, including Tania, would go there with their boyfriends, but somehow they go alone because of various happenings, which wasn't the plan. There, Tania experiences things she isn't sure are possible, things that only drugs could create. Her and her friends, after meeting three rather gorgeous and strange guys, get swept away into a dark world which is beyond what they know. There is more to Tania than meets the eye and she quickly catches on to what she thinks is going on at the Black Lodge, the rock singers house, where the party took place. But it's more intense than she could imagine. To save her friends and her love life, she has to realise who she is and learn to resist temptation.
At first it might seem a bit slow, i wondered why Tania would keep putting herself into the situations, it's obvious something's going on, and although she wants to save her friends, she walks so easily into these situations. However, as the twists and turns reveal themselves and Tania learns she is the only one to stop this, you will want to keep reading.
