Betrayal by Gillian Shields
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Betrayal by Gillian Shields is a story that draws you in from the moment you start reading it; Shields gives vivid detail of Wyldcliffe and makes you feel as if you are in the English countryside. I really enjoyed that Betrayal is told from two points of views. The first is from Evie Johnson, a transfer student who doesn’t fit in at Wyldcliffe Abbey School. Evie begins to feel more at home when she finds out that her family history is intertwined with Wyldcliffe. To make life at school even harder for Evie is the fact that some of the faculty is out to kill her. With help from her two friends Evie must find a way to save her love, Sebastian. The second point of view is from Sebastian's letters and journals. Sebastian is from another time and writes in a very romantic and poetic manner. He is torn because in order to save himself he must destroy the one girl he loves. Betrayal is filled with mystery and suspense and a shocking ending.
