A new take on the paranormal

First thoughts:

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book, but I was immediately sucked in. I couldn't put the book down, it was like I wanted to know what happened next. And even though there was some slow moments I was glad to meet the characters and be with them on the start of their journey. The author was creative in creating a unique and magical world and she did a great job on painting the scenes of the characters.


Julia Parker has a unique gift; she can sense peoples emotions and feel exactly what they feel. And when one night her car breaks down and she attempts to take a short cut through the woods back home something happens. Someone chased her and knocked her over the cliff, she barely caught onto the side, hanging on for dear life.

But just when she thought she was dead, she hears fighting taking place up ahead but her hands are knocked away from what she is grasping and she falls to her certain death. But as she was prepared to die someone catches her. She lands in the arm of a mysterious stranger, who looks familiar to her but she can't put her hands on how.

Soon, she grows to learn more about him, though their relationship is strained at best. He claims they can't be together; she can't see why not. But soon things are revealed and Julia soon discovers she has a huge part to play in the world of this guy who swept her off her feet. It's only a matter of if she and "Nicholas" can make it out alive.

Last thoughts:

Though it took me awhile to grow used to the writers style, I was still able to enjoy it. I liked the characters and found myself angry right alongside them. This is definately a book that brought out some of my emotions.
