Jacey's parents had been moving her and her brother Hudson all their lives. she never thought about questioning their decisions, until now when she found her parents dead, killed in an accident that the police claimed was no accident. Aunt Grace, her mother's twin sister took the siblings in, brought them back to her house and their birthplace. they were the Nemelite, people that held magical powers, always hunted by those who longed for powers. her parents hid them on Earth, concealing her true lineage from her with the hope keeping them safe.
i received a free e-book from the author in exchanged for a review. brought up in a different way than other Nemelite, Jacey knew nothing about her birthright until her parents' death. to make things worst, she possessed a rare ability even among the Nemelite, which will caused her to become the savior or downfall of her people. the intensity of the plot remained high throughout the book, making it impossibly difficult to put down once i got a slight taste of it. for the first half of the book, the mysteriousness and suspense was quite frustrating to deal with yet at the very same time, curiosity was eating me from within. i was more than surprised to find myself not skipping pages just to know what happen next. soon, getting a glimpse of Jacey's ability was so rewarding that i only wanted more doses of it!
