About the Book

Amara is never alone. Not when she’s protecting the cursed princess she unwillingly serves. Not when they’re fleeing across dunes and islands and seas to stay alive. Not when she’s punished, ordered around, or neglected.

She can’t be alone, because a boy from another world experiences all that alongside her, looking through her eyes.

Nolan longs for a life uninterrupted. Every time he blinks, he’s yanked from his Arizona town into Amara’s mind, a world away, which makes even simple things like hobbies and homework impossible. He’s spent years as a powerless observer of Amara’s life. Amara has no idea . . . until he learns to control her, and they communicate for the first time. Amara is terrified. Then, she’s furious.

All Amara and Nolan want is to be free of each other. But Nolan’s breakthrough has dangerous consequences. Now, they’ll have to work together to survive–and discover the truth about their connection.

    Im more sympathetic to Amara. It would be awful to have someone else controlling you.

    I'm sympathetic to Amara. How truly awful that situation would be and if he controls her..that would be even worse!

    sympathetic to Amara, wouldn't like someone controlling me.

    Hmm...I think Amara because of the controlling part and her not knowing about Nolan until he breaks through.

    I think I would have to say Nolan he wishes he could just be free to live with out the constant thoughts of her!

    I more feel sympathetic towards Nolan. I wouldn't like to be dragged out of my own world & thrown into another. Amara is being forced to do things she doesn't want to do & isn't happy. Life is already hard enough. . . who would want to helplessly watch someone else live? I would feel envious & jealous, but at the same time you can't help but to care for that person in that situation.

    I'm really intrigued by Nolan. It must be awful to be pulled into someone else's life all the time.

    I agree, AMARA.

    Amara seems to fit me better.

    Definitely Amara! Her life in general sounds difficult, and then add Nolan into the mix, and it would be quite overwhelming!

    I am very intrigued by Nolan. It will be interesting to see where his story will go in connection to Amara's and what will happen.
