Get prepared to be taken on an unpredictable journey. I was drawn to this book by the amazing cover art and when I read the book blurb I thought "finally"...an author who is not following the pack on the typical dystopian, dark and depressing trend that seems to be everywhere lately. I am so excited I took a chance on this awesome indie author. Her characters have such wonderful depth and the setting makes me want to visit Cleveland. Seriously, who knew they had islands in Ohio?

I absolutely loved Allie. I love a story where I actually am able to laugh and cry with the characters I am reading about. Even though she is this extraordinary girl with powerful gifts, Allie is very grounded in reality. One the best things about this series is that the author has made everything so believable. She has woven such a creative storyline that is truly one of a kind. I was totally blown away.

This is a refreshing new series with an unbelievable ending. Can't wait for book two.
