In this darkly imaginative debut novel full of myth, magic, romance, and mystery, a Princeton freshman is drawn into a love triangle with two enigmatic brothers and discovers terrifying secrets about her family and herself-a bewitching blend of Twilight, The Secret History, Jane Eyre, and A Discovery of Witches For every world, there is an underworld. Arriving at Princeton for her freshman year, Thea Slavin finds herself alone, a stranger in a strange land. Away from her family and her Eastern European homeland for the first time, she struggles to adapt to unfamiliar American ways and the challenges of college life-including a young man whose brooding good looks and murky past intrigue her. Drawn to the elusive Rhys and his equally handsome and mysterious brother, Jake, she ventures into a sensual mythic underworld as irresistible as it is dangerous. In this shadow world that seems to evoke Greek mythology and the Bulgarian legends of the samodivi, or "wildalones"-forest witches who beguile and entrap men-Thea will discover a family secret bound to transform her forever . . . if she can accept that dead doesn't always mean gone, and love doesn't always distinguish between the two. Mesmerizing and addictive, Wildalone is a thrilling blend of the modern and the fantastical. Krassi Zourkova creates an atmospheric world filled with rich characters as compelling as those of Diana Gabaldon, Deborah Harkness, and Stephenie Meyer.… (més)

I was initially intrigued by this novel, especially since the broad outlines of the narrator paralleled the author's life. However, this intriguing start quickly shifted into a somewhat predictable love triangle involving the narrator and two handsome brothers. The supernatural certainly plays a part and Greek mythology plays a staring role but I do wish the author had fleshed out the myths a bit more. Overall, the book was pretty good, but I had high expectations and was a little disappointed. ( )

Thea Slavin does not understand her parents' resistance to her desire to attend Princeton. Sure it is a long way from home in Bulgaria, but her heart tells her it is where she needs to be to make her dreams a reality. Her determination quickly leads her on a journey that will dig up some dark family secrets that include an eerie amount of Bulgarian legend and Greek mythology. As Thea struggles with adapting to American life, she also finds herself swept up in mystery and intrigue. While she is pulled along on the whims of those around her, she is suddenly struck by a strong connection to a young stranger. Things get complicated when one foggy morning, she mistakes his more forward brother for him. It is only after Thea agrees to date Rhys that she realizes it was Jake who stole her heart. Struggling with her feelings for both men, Thea finds herself tangled in an inescapable web of magic and myth. This debut novel will keep you guessing as the plot twists and turns between extreme college party life and a surreal world where the impossible becomes reality.

I found this book as a suggestion while shopping for books on Amazon, and boy was I glad to get it! Wildalone is a gem, truly. Krassi Zourkova managed to bring a new story filled with new myths, passion, and an enchanting mystery and a protagonist to the literature world. I struggled to write a review because I loved the book so much (and I spent many hours researching about it).

If you're looking for something different, with a sinister edge, a lover of piano, with myths mixed in a dormitory filled with a thriller history and a mysterious murder, YOU my friend will want to buy this book!

We are talking about a Bulgarian girl in America trying to solve a mystery, play the piano, and find true love... and stay away from magic (as if!). To me, it's a winner. Bravo! Can't wait for book #2.

FYI I'm team Jake, I don't like Rhys at all. ( )

OK. this book is both mystical and original, compelling and entertaining...a perfect blend of so many things which makes it unlike any other I have read in a long time. I have to say that this was one of those books that you just get drawn into it. There is something for everyone and the book is just done right. There is a balance between all the elements that keep you turning pages. I really enjoyed this book and think the story will get better and better as the series continues. 4 stars ( )
