Summary: (as quoted from Mia Castile’s website) Ellie Solomon has always been sort of a loner. Between her brother (who is the only family she has left) and a few friends (that are more his friends than hers) she lives a boring life. The one person she confides in is her Guardian Angel who visits her dreams. He is her best friend, too bad he's not real. When strange wolves with red eyes begin chasing her one evening, a mysterious boy and his dog saves her, catapulting her into the secret of her parents fate and who she really is. Together, with her new friends she embarks on a journey that leads her to the destiny of her Generation.

My thoughts:
Generations I: Book of Enlightenment is an astounding novel. The story opens with a seventeen year old girl named Ellie Solomon learning that after years of living in many different foster homes, she has finally been placed under the custody of her brother, Gideon, and now they will be able to have their own apartment. But to afford their own apartment, they both need jobs. Gideon already has one, but Ellie doesn’t, so she goes in search of one, and while walking to school, she spots an old rusty bookstore that is looking for workers, and she is immediately hired as an employee. Everything seems to be looking up for the Solomon family - until Ellie is attacked by two grey wolves with menacing red eyes. Luckily, a mysterious boy named Ben and his dog Boss save her from being killed - but they can’t save her from fearing the wolves. When she is attacked by the wolves again, she is taken to meet Ben’s mother, and suddenly Ellie and Gideon are thrust into a world they know nothing about. They find out that they are a part of the Generations - a species that are like angels, except that they have been granted free will - and that they have to fight and defeat the Noctem, Lucifer’s creations - a species that believes they are equal with God. The thing is, Ellie’s heard of the Noctem before, from her “angel” ; a boy whom she’s been dreaming about for as long as she can remember, a boy who she loves more than anything, and yet has never met. But just when Ben, the sweet, charismatic boy that Ellie has been spending a lot of time with, starts falling for her, she meets her angel in real life… and it turns out that he’s connected to Ben in a way that Ellie never expected. I can’t say anymore, because then I’ll spoil it for you guys, but I will tell you this : Generations I : Book of Enlightenment is one of the best fantasy novels I’ve read this year. There are tons of unexpected twists and turns, and the novel itself has a delectable plot, not to mention that Castile’s writing style is easy to follow and highly addictive. I love this book, and if you’re looking for a juicy love triangle, great plot, relatable characters, and an ending that leaves you breathless, then this is a book that you’ll love too!!!!!Make sure to pick it up when it comes out October 25th!!!
