Like most humans, Allie's spent her life distancing herself from Seers, a race of human-like beings discovered on Earth in the early 1900s. That changes after catching her boyfriend in the arms of a hot band groupie, and Allie goes from San Francisco artist slacker to the girl wearing the GPS anklet in about sixteen seconds. Being stuck with community service is the least of her problems, though, compared to the shock of discovering who--and what--she really is.

Yanked out of her life by the mysterious Revik, who drives her crazy in all the best and worst ways, Allie finds out that her blood may not be as indisputably human as she always thought. Through Revik she learns the truth: that Seers are nothing like she thought, that the world is nothing like it appears to be... and that she has far more in common with Seers than she ever wanted to believe.

Now on the run from a group of anti-human,terrorist Seers called Rooks and her own human government, Allie must learn to navigate a secret shadow world behind her own, a world filled with superhuman Seers with their own battles raging...and their own agendas around the fate of humanity. When Allie's family and friends get dragged into that war, things suddenly get a lot more personal, and Allie learns she may be the only one who can stop it.

This book is pretty good. And the cover is pretty bad ass. There is a little something for everyone in this book which is kind of impressive. It is hard for authors to pick a genre and write a good book. But to be able to have elements of multiple and still have the book be decent is pretty amazing. If you enjoy SciFi, Dystopian, Romance, Suspense, or Paranormal than this book is for you.

The writing was amazing in this book. Even if the story isn’t exactly for you there is something to be said about the writing. J.C. is able to bring you into the world in only a few sentences. And then after reading more her writing doesn’t let you go. She keeps the story fast paced and interesting as well as putting twists and turns in the book. The romance is slow, and creeps up on you but it is still beautiful.

The only thing that I would have to say is that I would have liked a little more history about the world before we jump right into the story. Other than that the story was fast-paced and amazing. Read it, you’ll like it.
