Ember Brycin has never been normal. She has at no time felt that she fit in. She has two different colored eyes and hair. Plus strange things happen around her. After being accused of blowing up the gym at a school dance, she is forced to transfers to a school for troubled teens. It is there she meets Eli Dragen; he is dark and mysterious and full of secrets, some of them involving her.
I enjoyed Ember’s character. She is feisty and strong spirited. She is relentless when it comes to finding out information. She doesn’t have a lot of friends but is loyal to the ones she has. My heart went out to her for all the terrible things she has had to endure.
Eli is the perfect bad boy. His personality keeps you guessing. It is obvious he is hiding something, and you’re never sure if he could be trusted.
I enjoyed the tension between Ember and Eli. The conversations between the two kept me laughing. They absolutely have perfected the battle of wits against each other. They have an interesting chemistry that makes the story entertaining.
The plot is well done and very mysterious. I’m really glad I already have the second book and could dive right into it. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
