Living on Catalina Island, Scarlet Wenderoth has led an isolated life. After her brother died, Scarlet's life has become filled with grief and without any joy. Her parents, who are too wrapped up in their own grief, fail to notice Scarlet's body disappearing and drowning in her grief. The only thing she can look forward to is riding her horse, escaping deep within the heart of the island. It's not until she encounters Will Cohen, who stops her dead on her tracks. At first, Scarlet is resistant to Will, but slowly she is awakened by the love both share. Just when Scarlet is beginning to heal, she makes a startling discovery about Will's past, which threatens to unravel their love and herself.
For me, Elana's debut is a hit! An enthralling ,gorgeous, and breath-taking story that will appeal to readers. It will linger with you after the last page. In a genre filled with vampire's, werewolf's, and zombie's (no offence to those who love them), "Sacred" is a breath of fresh air. 

Besides this being one of my favorites song's, "Stay" perfectly correspondence to Scarlet and Will's relationship.
