Throughout the test, Alexia struggles to conceal her psychic ability to read the past and future of anyone she touches. When her secret is revealed, Alexia is taken to an island where other highly skilled agents and readers like her train to survive.
As Alexia gains more control over her abilities, she desperately tries to piece together her elusive past. In her quest for the truth, Alexia’s loyalties are tested when forced to make an impossible choice between those she loves and the family she can’t remember.
A spell-binding adventure of friendship, love, unforeseen twists and learning that our most dangerous enemies are often the people we trust the most. A captivating novel filled with forbidden romance and shocking betrayals that demand the question – Can One Decision Determine Your Destiny?
Review: This one was exciting! I love a good story that has lots of twists and turns.
Alexia was a great, complex character, which I always enjoy. Trying to figure out her past along with her was an interesting ride. This story asks a lot of questions about who to trust, who is right, who are the “good guys” and who are the “bad guys.” Should we trust the Circle? The Resistance? Neither? Within the Circle and the Resistance are individuals who are also very complex. Even if the Circle is supposed to be on the side of good, that doesn’t mean that its members are all on the up-and-up. There are lots of different shades of gray, which makes the characters feel much more real.
This story reminded me of several other great dystopian tales that I have read before, but still brought something fresh and new to the table. I definitely recommend it if you are a fan of the dystopian genre. Goodreads rating: 4 stars.
