Blurb: Sixteen-year-old Leah Grant has given up on being normal. She’d settle for stopping the voices in her head, intrusive visions of the future, and better odds of making it to her seventeenth birthday.
That’s the thing about pretending to be human in a world where magic used to exist – at any moment, her cover could be blown and she’ll be burned to death like the rest of the witches.
Everything changes when she loses control of her powers and flees the orphanage she grew up in. She desperately wants to be invisible but finds her face plastered on every news channel as humans panic over the possible resurgence of her kind. And now the hunters won’t give up until they find her.
Making friends for the first time in her life and falling in love with one of them drives her to discover why she is unlike any being she’s ever met – human or otherwise. The dangerous powers inside of her that would repel Nathan, her new, handsome reason for living, are priceless to some. The locked up forever kind of priceless. And to others, they are too dangerous to allow her to live.
Let’s hope she can stay hidden.
Review: I was surprised. I honestly thought that I was not going to get through this book, that I would have to force myself to read it but, I could not put it down. It was so emotional, this book just grabs at your heart and squeezes until the end, I found myself tearing up on some parts.
There were twists and turns and mysteries, I had no idea who to trust, which makes for quite an interesting story. The beginning did start off a little slow but, it got so much better as it went on.
I have to say that I am ashamed that I judged a book again, going into reading it with trepidation and expecting to be let down. I’m happy to say that this reviewer was proven wrong. I thought that this was going to be about one thing and what I thought was completely wrong.
Always try new things, go out of your comfort zone, don’t let bad books you’ve read before scare you away from reading something that might seem the same. You’ll be surprised and that’s what this reader hopes to do with this blog.
Thank you for reading my review.
