Somewhere between falling and flying… there is a girl. 

Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the facade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.

My Review
Writing Style:
Owlet is a quick and easy read, one that you won’t want to put down. It reminded me of a fairytale of sorts. I felt that the plot lacked in some respects but not enough to make me shy away from the book. It actually made me interested in reading the next book because so much was left unexplained. I have many questions about the back-story of Iris and the Society of Feathers that I hope will be answered in the next book. Character development and world building in this book was pretty amazing. I found myself wishing I could live on the gorgeous island that much of this book took place on!

My Opinion:
I fell in love with the uniqueness portrayed in Owlet. The idea of people sharing a soul with a bird and the way the two collide is astounding. The legends and songs of the Society of Feathers fascinated me because they read like an ancient fable. I’ve always loved the idea of spoken storytelling and enjoyed that it was a big part of this book. Iris learns of her past from stories told by Falcon based from books he has read. Books that are mentioned in books are always a welcomed plus for me! I enjoyed seeing into Iris’s dreams as well, they served as a way to perceive into her past and future.

So, will I be reading the next book in the series? Yes! I can’t wait to read more about Iris and learn more about the Society of Feathers!
