strange things had always happened to Nia. however, she and her best friend Rhea had always written them off as flukes. on her eighteen birthday, she spoke of a prophecy, scaring Rhea to tears. now nineteen, she met with a stranger that she felt attracted to from the very moment they laid eyes on each other. Aaron felt the same way towards Nia, like they were fated to be together. knowing each other on the first day felt like they knew each other for the lifetime. they were both approached by Lilith, a girl who claimed that they weren't entirely human. with the danger upon their tail, they need every help they can get to survive.
i received a free e-book from the author in exchanged for a review. the book started out promising, especially the part that introduced the dreamscape they were in, communicating in their dreams was a refreshing idea. while i personally believed in the existence of soul mates, it was quite a pain to see them repetitively throwing themselves at each other or knowing how their body tingled with each others' touch. having matching marks to proof that they were fated was truly an overkill. fortunately, the moment Nia showed her power, it made the waiting worthwhile. unique, Nia had the ability to manipulate and gain strength from all four elements, which made her rare and precious to her people. seeing how perfect her life and her boyfriend was, it was actually believing to have Nia going through the savior mode to balance it out. i enjoyed the action part of the book more than its romance, which was a little too heavily dosed for my taste.
