Book Blurb: 
Somewhere between falling and flying… there is a girl.

Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the façade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.

Review:  Owlet is a short read at a little over 100 pages, however it is a read you don't want to move too fast with, because it is easy to miss something in this story.

Izzy is a home schooled 16 year old who suffers from severe asthma. She leads a very sheltered life that is soon to change.

There's so much in this story that could be considered a spoiler, but to try not to ruin it for those that want to read are some interesting things.

1. Iris is part of a race that shares a soul of a human and bird.

2. There's someone that out there that wants her dead.

3. Falcon may have been sent to do something awful but he is Iris' soul mate.

This story is emotionally driven. You learn everything as Iris learns it. I really loved the action in this story and the characters. Emma really does a great job making everyone so real.

I have to admit that I have a problem with stories that involve soul mates that are teenagers. I just can't fathom finding true love that young without having any life experiences, but Iris and Falcon work well.

The Society of Feathers series is definitely one I'll want to continue reading.
