Love, fate, and power collide in this new series by #1 New York Timesbestselling author Aprilynne Pike!
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 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.

As I write this, the ARC is still with in arms reach of where I sit. Even though the book cover is right there in this post, I keep glancing at it’s physical counterpart, very literally dying for more. To make me pine, ache and beg for more in a series is tough 2.5 years into my blogging career. I’ve read so much in such a short time, that it’s nearly impossible to leave me speechless. (but when I am rendered quiet, my husband sure is happy…but that’s another tale for another time.) Well done Aprilynne, I both love you and hate you all at the same time. I suspect this is the greatest compliment one can give to an author, and I am happy to bestow it upon you.

This book will not make you want more, it will make you need more.

I think the biggest reason I loved this book so much would be that you’re not tossed into a preexisting world of magic being ask to simply accept it. You walk through each step of learning, discovering and downright in shock and awe with our heroine Tavia Michaels. Apirlynne Pike has a serious kick-ass ability to balance her plot and sub plots in a manner that you never quite know which is which They are all equally important, equally heart-stopping and at times eaqually heart breaking.

It is written on the back of the ARC. “Aprilynne Pike created a heart-stopping romance built on a love triangle like you’ve never seen before..” Now wait DON’T GO! I know, I know everyone is so over that love triangle thing – but this short statement about the book couldn’t be more true but I promise, you have NEVER seen this kind of a love triangle. Ever! Cross my heart! Dare I say, she’s reinvented the love triangle!? If you have never trusted me before this, start here – with this book.

Between loss, love, and an age old power and mystery, this book has everything you could ever want and then some. I highly recommend it and to prove it I want to give you a copy!
