What if you could see peoples death before it happened? What kind of person would you be? Would you try to stop them or would you walk away? That was a decision Ela had to make when she was a child. She saw her best friend’s death and there was nothing she can do save her. So, she ran away… that’s what most people do when they’re scared. Fast forward and Ela is an adult with very limited contact with the outside world. She sees the death of a child and decides she’s going to risk her sanity and save him… only it was too late.
As if things wasn’t interesting enough, we meet Luca, who is just as special as Ela, but different. He’s an empath trying to help save the world… but is he fighting for the right side? He believes he’s doing the right thing, fighting along side the Shades against the Wraithes. Can you tell who is on the side of truth and who is lying? That is the question Ela has to answer when she meets Talon, a Wraith… with a twist!
This book was amazing! You can easily read 17 chapters in one night before you realize what time it is! I was fascinated from chapter 1. You watch as Ela navigated her way through am unfamiliar world as she figures out who she can trust. The last couple of pages were devastating and I loved it. I found myself wanting revenge and I can’t wait to read the next installment!
