Summary: Would you sacrifice friendship and love in order to save your planet?
Being a teenager is tough, especially when you have to pretend to be something you’re not, and you’re in love with someone you shouldn’t. 115 years ago, a small planet called Arcadia was invaded by a vicious alien race and nearly destroyed. Cut off from their resources, the Arcadians turned to Earth for help. A group of Arcadian explorers discovered a Prophecy that claimed their salvation lay in the hands of two children from Earth. To ensure their safety, the Arcadian Council sent their most gifted youngsters to Earth to act as protectors. Samantha is one of them.
To succeed in her mission she must learn to control her Arcadian powers and keep her true identity from her best friend, and the girl she swore to protect, Alexia. But Samantha will soon realize that nothing is as it seems. Someone is trying to prevent the Prophecy from taking place and the prophecy boy hasn’t been found yet. There is also a new drug circulating at school that is turning students into freakishly strong menaces.
To make matters worse, distractions keep getting in her way. Such as her love/hate relationship with her “cousin” Matthew. Or her confused feelings toward popular and mysterious Julian. She wants nothing more than to be free to live her life. But the survival of Arcadia depends on her and her friends. Free will is not an option.
*Note from the author: Due to strong language and mature content this book is recommended to readers 17+.
5 Star Review: Really Great Story…this book was not exactly what I thought it would be, but in the best possible way. I am not one who usually reads books with multiple points of view … however in this story it really worked. With each characters point of view you got a little bit more … within their lives. There were a few things in the beginning of the book that were confusing, like what exactly their powers were, that it would have been helpful if they were expanded upon just tad more. There was also a lot of dramatic irony throughout the book and there were so many times when I wished I could just tell some of the characters what was going on. This made it even more hard for me to put the book down and I found myself up several nights just trying to see what would happen next. I liked that the I hadn’t read another book with the same story line before and that made it all the more interesting that it was original. The cliffhanger at the end left me wanting more immediately and I can’t wait for the next book to come out because now that I’m invested in the book I just have to know what’s coming next. I will most certainly be recommending this book to others!!
