having just graduated, Jessie joined her friends on a road trip to Las Vegas. however, she was informed last minute by her best friend Alex that her ex, Jimmy will be joining them. Jimmy was the love of her life who broke her heart 5 months ago when he dumped her for no reason and got back together with his ex Kari. during the trip, Jimmy was finally ready to tell her why he did it, because he wants her back. despite how important this seemed, things became even crazy after she met Russ, a stranger that never seemed to lose at gambling.
instead of playing twenty-one, they played twenty-two in the Witch World, a dimension that those with extra genes could went through after being "connected". following Russ, Jessie found herself being locked up in a meat freezer and soon froze to her death and brought to the morgue. but through this death experience, Jessie was finally "connected" and next came her supernatural powers. the book was an extremely fast read if not for its background introduction on both the organizations, which obviously fought against each other. its complications reminded me so much of the Thirst (2009-2013) series, where i was also forced to skip lines even pages just to get to the delicious parts.
