Eighteen-year-old Roxie Sebastian lives a charmed life, and she knows it. Too bad she can’t feel it.
All her life, she’s felt disconnected from the world around her. Everything changes just before graduation, when she’s drawn to an eerie, brilliant light-which narrowly misses her as it blows up her friend Lincoln’s car. Clearly someone’s after Roxie, and finally Lincoln tells her the truth: He and Roxie are angels, beings from another dimension, and that light is her soul, separated from her human body in a traumatic birth.
Once a skeptical Roxie rules out the other possibilities-like Lincoln created this delusion to escape his abusive father-she accepts her gut-deep knowledge of the truth. But someone has been screwing with her light, using it to commit crimes, and their actions are about to cause irreparable damage to two worlds: the one she lives in, and the one she can’t remember.
Aided by her best friend Jordan, her boyfriend Tucker, and Lincoln, Roxie tracks down the criminal and uncovers many more secrets not only of her past, but of the history of their race on Earth. And then Roxie faces a horrible dilemma-the only way she can stop them from ripping apart both worlds is to fuse with her light…which could be tainted by the evil with which it was used.
This book surprised in me one of the best ways. Even though this book came out a few years ago, it still reads as if it is a new publication. I may struggle with my review as I tend to do when I like books.
The main thing I enjoyed about this story were the characters. They all felt developed and wonderfully flawed. I won’t like, I didn’t like Roxie in the beginning as she felt like a spoiled brat but she changed as the story progressed. She had a bit of a reality check that brought her back to reality and she began to humble a lot. That is when I started to really like her. The rest of the characters really helped to round out the story – Jordan, Lincoln, and Tucker. The interaction between all of these friends was a lot of fun to read.
The plot of the story itself was rather fascinating to me. I’ve been trying to read more books like this because I find they are better than I could have imagined. I love stories that deal with good vs evil and this was a good story. This was also a fast paced story that never slowed down. I was totally invested the entire time. I had to know what was going on and where Roxie’s race of people came from.
I am trying SO HARD not to give much away in my review so it’s short this time. Bottom line – give this book a try! Add it to your TBR or borrow from library/buy a copy. This is a good read that will make you want to jump into book 2, so have that ready.
