Keira Jameson used to lead a normal life, she just had a gift, passed down through the generations of her family. Now, after hearing voices, having strange dreams of others calling out to her, and her grandfather's last words haunting her, she sets out to find other families like hers. Along with her best friend Lily, the only person outside her family to know about her gift, Keira begins a hunt for her ancestors. A chance meeting with a young man, Lucian Turner, sets them on the right track, but their discoveries change the way Keira will see herself for ever more. Fear, superstition and heritage are shaping Keira's future and she must face her enemies, even if this could mean losing her life.


The story has a great potential, it catches your attention from the very first chapter and makes you wonder. There's only a thing that I didn't particularly liked and it's the way the bound between the characters happens. It was too fast for me and that's why I didn't find it particularly believable... But then some of the best parts were the ones in which I could read about the moments the characters spent together and so after a while how the bond happened didn't bother me too much anymore. That's definitely a good thing because I've been able to appreciate every character and find out different aspects of everyone that made me want to know them all.

Keira is a kick-ass girl, extremely powerful and with a particular charm, and danger or not it's kinda difficult not to want to be in her shoes. Of course that could be for the guys around her, too... Well, it's not my fault if they're intriguing! Lucian is the perfect boyfriend material guy, Tyler is the one who gives you a hard time to concentrate only on Lucian and then there is... surely someone else, read the book and then we can talk about intriguing guys!

Action, unexpected and the Buffy-style horror keeps you involved until an end that definitely doesn't sounds like one at all... Great thing I have the second instalment ready to be read!
