Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…
Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.
I am hooked on this book, and can't wait for the sequel. Blue Moon out on July 7, 2009. I was intrigued, deeply involved with the characters, and the story kept me guessing. From the min I started reading it I didn't put it down. Luckily I was trapped in an airport and had all day to read. I wouldn't have been able to stop! It's addicting!
