I can fly.
I have to keep it a secret.
Everything was fine, until I met him.
I can't stay away...
Aurora Lockette has a supernatural ability she hides from the world. Gavyn Dhaval is a newly famous actor that shies away from the spotlight. When Aurora and Gavyn literally collide in a fender bender on her first day of law school, they are irresistibly drawn to each other.
When Aurora's secret is revealed, she has no choice but to abandon Gavyn to go into hiding to escape the media frenzy. A secret society of gifted humans contacts her to warn of dark forces that seek to destroy her and everyone she loves.
Aurora must try to understand who and what she is while she fights to protect herself and her loved ones from a hidden, sinister force. >
The pacing is really slow and the writing kind of wooden and choppy. Nothing – from the heroine’s ability to fly to the descriptions of her friends – is really fleshed out, which left me feeling like the story was incomplete (aside from the cliffhanger ending, I mean).
The romance is rushed and a lot on the unbelievable side. The author skipped large chunks of time, which didn’t help. They were exchanging ‘I love yous’ and I was still stuck on them just having met.
Editing issues abound, from continuity to basic misspellings and typos.
I did like the concept of the world and the idea behind the story arc. There were some interesting parts. I was curious enough after finishing to buy the next book. Maybe if the author had fleshed the story and characters out I would have enjoyed it more. As it stands my overall feeling is “meh”.
