Twins, Sera and Luke have special gifts. Sera can heal anyone with her touch, and Luke can see the future, but can't do anything about it. When Luke has a vision that predicts Sera's death, his gift starts to look more like a curse. But there are darker forces at work than either of them could have imagined. Others have learned about them and see their gifts as a curse and a danger to their very kind. Can Luke find a way to change Sera's fate, or will the dark forces at work do it for him, when they kill the both of them?
This novel was fantastic. I am kicking myself for waiting so long to read it. I wasn't expecting a lot of what it delivered, which is my own fault for not trusting the Goodreads Genres anymore so I didn't even bother to read them. This was just, so wonderful.
Luke and Sera are amazing characters! They have such a fantastic bond with one another. I love their personalities. I love the comedic banter they share. I loved seeing their true love and devotion to one another. This is the type of love you want to see in a family. I am jealous of their closeness. Jonas is an interesting character. I didn't like him at first, but the more I saw him, the more I couldn't get enough of him. I would love to see Sera and Jonas have something between them at some point. The connection with his sister would make it borderline creepy, but it would still work. Fey, I liked in the beginning. As you begin to learn more about her, she starts to feel a little standoffish, but I still like her. Marc, I didn't like him from the beginning. Everything about him, I just didn't like. I don't feel like he deserved what he got, but I still don't like him.
The plot was amazing. It was written with a perfect flow, everything happened at just the right time. The tension building was superb. Every page draws you in more until you cannot put it down. As more elements of the story come to light, and you learn more along with the characters, you get so invested in the story and the characters. The one thing I didn't like what the changing of POVs. I love it when authors use these, but I don't like it when it isn't very clearly labeled. POVs would change between chapters, sometimes mid-chapter, and although there were decorative line breakers and the writing was fairly clear about who was speaking, it was still slightly unsettling. There were two times I can remember where I had to step back and re-read a paragraph because I was so absorbed in the story that I was reading too quickly and didn't catch the change and then got confused.
This book was fabulous, and if gifted kids, vampires, and elves are within your interests, then you are a fool not to give this book a shot. It was well worth it.
