Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told. Tavia will soon to discover that she’s an Earthbound—someone with the ability to create matter out of nothing—and that she alone holds the key to stopping the Reduciata, an evil society that manipulates global events for its own shadowy purposes. Tavia will ultimately have to make a choice: to come into her powers and save the world from the evil Reduciata or to choose free will and a love of her own.
Wow this is the first book that I read by Aprilynne Pike, and all I have to say is Wow, I really liked this book! It was a surprise, I thought it was just going to be another love triangle, but oh my God it's so much more. Its really a book that as you read you keep uncovering new secrets and surprises you didn't expect! I just loved how from the beginning the story just pulls you in. Probably one of my favorite beginnings. I just loved the whole plot of the story. Travia's story is full of grief but also full of secrets. The secrets she will find out can either save her or destroy her. I loved the twists! OMG! There were some awesome twists that I didn't see coming! I can't really give away much, you'll have to read it to find out about how good the plot is.
I also enjoyed the characters! Travia is amazing narrative, she deals with all that's happening in a way that I can connect to. She is strong but at the same time she is also weak. I liked her character a lot, well honestly I liked all of the characters.
In a book, there were only a couple things that I might of not liked. I was really annoyed with some of the scenes, and all of the waiting to find out who the mystery "person is" lol! But that's just my problem...Haha
Overall I really liked this book, and I will definitely recommend it. Now waiting for the second one to come out...
