Summary Via Goodreads:
“For small-town rebel Dani Webber magic and monsters are no more real than the Easter Bunny… until the day she accidentally stops time. Dani quickly discovers that not only do supernaturals exist, but she herself is one of them. This is great news for her life-long best friend Russ, who can finally come clean about his own supernatural status and his undying love for her. Before the two can start to enjoy the long overdue relationship, Dani is taken by a powerful council of supernaturals who believe she is the Chosen One destined to save them from extinction.
As if being kidnapped and expected to save the world isn’t bad enough, an ancient prophecy warns of the Chosen One’s dark nature: “Only the truest love will keep her an agent for good.” The council believes they know who this “true love” is and, unfortunately, that person isn’t Russ. The mysterious, powerful and devastatingly handsome Seer is the last person Dani wants in her life, but when she starts having visions of a horrific future, she has no one else to turn to for help.”
Soon Dani finds herself torn between two very different boys with two very different opinions of whom she can trust. With the visions getting worse and time running out, Dani is forced to put aside her feelings and work with both the Seer and Russ before an ancient evil is unleashed upon the earth.

My Review: (4.5 out of 5 stars)
hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhooooooooooolllllllyyy shit. (that is a good holy shit i promise 😉 )
Song Choice, Song Choice: “The Science” by Coldplay, “The Best Day of My Life” by Brighteyes, “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)” by Chevelle, “Stolen” by Dashboard Confessional kay now to explain this ness, i, meaning me, Becca the person writing this review, picked these songs as songs that you can listen to either help you understand/give you a better idea of different aspects of the book. so yeah. Those are my picks for this book 🙂 enjoy…
First Thoughts: I LOVED THIS, I loved this i loved it i loved it. usually when i start to look at a book i will read the sample on amazon, I barely got three pages in before i was like screw it i am buying this! you can’t stop me! Even better yet i became ridiculously addicted to this book, while i was at work i couldn’t stop thinking about it and just hoping that the costumers would leave so i could get back to it! Unfortunately there was something that rubbed me the wrong way hence the four stars not five, but i still love this book. I truly did! I thought it was beauitfully written, the voice of the MC was strong for the most part, the twist and unexpected, just plain frustration it brought to me made me really happy, and for the life of me i couldn’t guess what was going to happen! Fantastic! Stay tuned for the rating dropping, i swear i am not trying to be ass but this is suppose to be the short part of my review.
Plot: WOW. I loved it! So well thought out, while the MC’s were confused and frustrated and trying to figure everything out i was in the same boat, i didn’t know who to trust, i didn’t know who the “bad” guy was, i didn’t i was just as confused as everyone else. But isn’t that the great thing about the grey area? There is no real right or wrong answer, it comes down to what its right for you, what is right for everyone even if that means you don’t belong to group a or group b, it means you will stand as an individual to do what is right! FANTASTIC! Kelly Oram, you are FANTASTIC! So with all that said uuumm the romance… this was part of the reason the rating dropped for me. Holy mother of love-triangles. i think i was so upset because even i didn’t know who to pick, and the worst part was that she didn’t either, and i will get into this a little more in characters, but since this also has to do with plot i will say love triangle-y stuff here too. I was ready to either punch Dani in the face, or pound my head against a wall until it was over. Okay so be aware there is an intense love triangle here.
Thoughts on Characters:
Danielle: You can’t even believe the crush i had on this girl when the book started. I loved Dani, I loved her voice, i loved her personality and i loved how fun she was. She had this awesome mixture, of being totally, sassy, smartass-ed (sort of the same thing i suppose), she was kickass, brave, but also still very girlie in the fact that this is a girl who is 16 and never had been on a date or have been kissed. I really fucking loved her….thennnn something happened, and her voice kinda got lost in the plot almost? here is the other reason the rating dropped for me. I wanted her to be that sure hearted, passionate girl we met at the beginning of the book! I did sort of hate her a little at some points because she was making it hard for us to believe how she felt about either one of the guys, i mean she was being very quiet even to the readers about how she felt, and i understand that was part of her character as well she doesn’t like those mush-y mush-y moments, fine that is okay but you also did tell us in the beginning how much Russ meant to you and when you are picking between our two men i need you to be that strong, fun, awesome girl again. AND i will not take it out on her too much because she is also scared, and she has been thrown into something she doesn’t fully understand so because of this reasoning i just talked myself into a little bit i think its time to change the rating to 4.5….anyways back to Dani, BUT i was sooo sooo so so so so so so so so very happy because she came back to us! she did! she came back yay!!! And i did admire how well she took most of everything, i loved that she didn’t need to be the total badass all the time because lets face it kids we can’t be badass all the time, well besides Katniss that but that is because she is like on steroids or something 😉 sorry finally watched the trailer to Catching Fire…
Russ: WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY! I always love the fun loving one! The funny, amazing at pranks, sexy one is the one i always fall for. And He was truly the perfect first love, but unfortunately all awesomeness has to come to an end sometime. He was hurt i understand that but he broke my heart as well in so many ways! I thought Russ was a fantastic character and i feel we are not done with him, we are no where done with him really. Russ had a tempter on him as well, he could be a bit of an ass but he was a good character and i really liked him.
Gabriel: You know…he made me realize how much i miss Alpha males when they aren’t around… Okay Gabriel has an interesting past, and he is a bit … innocent and is it so wrong of me that the moment we met him i couldn’t WAIT until Dani corrupted him? Is it too much to ask for this boy to become a bit of a rebel, well he is a bit rebellious i suppose, boy does he have a surprise for you! hahaha XD He was the silent storm that comes upon you and you don’t even realize how much you have come to care for him before its too late and you find yourself in love with two men. He did make me want to punch him in the face a couple times, i was like grow some balls and act like a man! For fuck sakes! I read far to many Alpha male types, because this is the type of guy i would have normally been all like AWWW before…jeez but i still loved his sweet demeanor, and he was so selfless he really was! Soo sweet! 🙂
oh Romeo and Juliet… really? Really…. slightly judging you right now Kelly but i still love you! 🙂
Ending: There is still lots to come from this i am sure but for right meow you can rest, breathe, get your bearings!
Very, very last thoughts: I truly did love this. I thought it was fantastic and i cannot wait to read the next one…and i will be doing some stalking because i don’t know if the second one is out or not, i really don’t know anything to be honest.
