An Irish heritage, Celtic myth, and deadly beauty

In eighth grade, Brianna did something so dreadful she was suspended and homeschooled. No one could explain what happened that night . . . except Brianna's Irish grandmother, who gave her a silver charm bracelet and told her to wear it until she turned seventeen. Ever since she slipped it on, Brianna has felt like she's invisible. People stare right past her as if she doesn't exist. And that includes Blake Williams, the one boy she can't resist.

But everything changes in one frozen, silver moment when Blake sees her--and recognizes what she's been hiding. Brianna is descended from Danu, the legendary Bandia of Celtic myth. Yet before she can fully understand who or what she is, Brianna accidentally binds her soul to Blake--whose tribe has spent the last thousand years hunting Danu's descendants to protect humanity.

Isn't it just the luck? When the boy you like finally sees and recognizes you and suddenly you found out that he's  a hunter destined to kill you.

And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

Ten reminds me of the movie, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer... and other movies where kids who were supposed to be having the vacation of their teenage lives turns suddenly into a nightmare. Another movie that comes to mind is The House of Wax. Well, The House of Wax did not really have a killer bent on vengeance but the kids on holiday element was there. Oh well, let the screaming begin.

  3. Okay, so both look really good. I think I'd pick up Silver first because Ten seems kind of cliche, like you said just like I Know What You Did...however, it has great potential and I hope it's done well. I didn't know about either of these, so thanks for sharing!
