Touching Smoke (touch 1) by Airicka Phoenix

Book Synopsis

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Anchor Group

For sixteen-year-old FALLON BRAEDEN being on the run had been the easiest part of her life. Packing up and crossing whole cities on a split second decision had been tedious, having no friends and being alone had been painful, but being caught by the truth was something she learned too late was worse.

Fallon is a weapon. She was created to destroy. Keeping her alive, keeping her safe is all Isaiah knows. It’s all that matters, because Fallon is his. She belongs to him. She is a part of his body, his soul, his heart. He will do anything, kill anyone to keep her, even if it means sacrificing himself.

But can Fallon believe the stranger on the motorcycle claiming he was there to die for her? How do you trust when you have no one but the memories of a girl you’ve never met and a tall, dark, gorgeous boy that you feel pulsing deep in your soul? What do you do when you’ve been lied to your whole life? When you’re told you’re normal even though nothing about you is normal? Fallon must learn quickly just what she is before the evil chasing her finally gets what it wants… her blood.

The world depends on her not falling in love, not giving in. But what happens when the temptation becomes too great, when falling is her only option? Can she live knowing the world will burn because his touch is the only thing keeping her alive?

Touch Passion. Touch Power. Touch Smoke!

Airicka’s writing style is fabulous as it draws you in immediately and keeps you hooked all the way through the book because it makes you feel like you are actually part of the story. I loved this book as soon as I started reading it and it just got better and better as it went on. The main characters (Isaiah , Fallon and Fallon’s Mum) were grate and the Idea of Fallon being created to be a weapon was a really interesting one.

The Love Story between Fallon and Isaiah is a good one although I am not sure I like the idea that their love is in fact genetically engineered into them & will ultimately kill them. I am sure the whole story is going to develop more as the series goes on.

The Character of Garrison the man who created Fallon and Isaiah is a really interesting one because you know that he is a really dark, evil mad scientist type but there are flashes of a really caring person but hes so obsessed with trying to create the Ultimate Human/weapon.

With Fallon you feel really sorry for her because of the dreams she has, the powers that she starts to develop and the fact that she looses her mum so believes she is an Orphan until Isaiah tells her that her father is still alive.
