After meeting a gorgeous stranger on a blind date, Alexis feels like she's known him her entire life. Suddenly, dark long-forgotten memories swirl in her mind. She realizes she's powerful, stunningly beautiful, and marked for death. 

As she faces the one who ordered her execution years ago, Alexis must learn her strange new powers and trust in unlikely allies to keep herself alive.

    It was a good book.
  • Ok

    Was expecting more. This was written in passive voice. Lacked active voice. Felt like I was reading the diary of a teenage girl retelling events not actively living it. For the hype, I was disappointed. It's just ok.

    I wish I’d seen more of the negative reviews before downloading but the positive ones along with “best selling author” impressed me, but what I’ve read of this book has not. Mostly dialogue with little description or feeling. Very poor transition from one scene to the next. The plot is slow to develop, which isn’t always a bad thing, but when there is no character development either then there is nothing to entice the reader to keep going.
  • This book is absolutely amazing!

    I stayed on the edge of my seat the whole time while reading the book, I just started reading it 2 days ago and already finished, that's how good this book is! The ending has me wondering do many things of what could happen. I CAN'T WAIT TO READ MORE!

  • Don't tell...

    By John Frosted
    Obviously the best thing to do in any new situation is to remain uninformed. I'm getting tired of authors who use this gimmick to build their plot, add suspense, and pad out their stories way beyond what is reasonable. Mysteries are one thing, but this is simply the characters finding one excuse after another not to tell each other necessary data, or not demanding it from the other. Nine more books of this.. oh joy
  • Amazing

    By Honeymoosh
    What an amazing series. Just finished book 12 and it was wonderful. The whole series was good. Never has an author taken me on such a long emotional journey as this one. Please read this book and the entire series. It's truly magical.
  • Transformed series

    Felt that the storyline was good, but the writing was horrible. Felt zero emotions between characters, writing was so literal and rote, very repetitive. Read second book, same. Won't be finishing series.
  • Cheesy AF

    By Boopydoop33
    Not well written. Tons of errors. Incredibly cheesy. You'll see what I mean. I'm not impressed. Especially since it's supposedly written by a best selling author.
  • Terrible

    By Meowbitchgetoutdaway
    Poorly written. Interesting idea and concept but the quality is bad.
