This is a totally engaging story of super powered teens and family against age old foes.
The young lady who is the heroine of this tale entered the foster care system as a young child and has no idea about her natural parents or what happened to them. She was passed around for many years until the McKyes adopt her and she learnt to love them. Three years ago a stranger in a park told her why she felt different – it seems she’s a Dewing, a descendent of a superhuman species who were the original Atlantians. He knows she has special powers that she keeps secret. He also warned her that others were searching for her and that her adopted family would be in danger because of her.
She decides to hide in plain sight, dresses in drab clothes, wears thick rimmed glasses and tries not to draw attention to herself in any way. Then two new students start at her school – Brandy and Ian. Brandy won’t let her slip into the background and Ian points out that doing so actually makes her more noticed and talked about as this isn’t typical teenage behaviour. On top of that, Ian is undeniably hot and determined not to let her ignore him! It seems this trio are fated to work together to save their species, but can they do so and if so, how?
The characters are believable, even with their special talents. Their emotions, reactions and experiences are related in a manner which helps readers empathise with them. The storyline is powerful and it is a real page turner story which I didn’t want to put down. I also think this could easily become part of a series – and I really hope it does. I’d like to read more about what happens in the future to the characters in this story! It is a great book, highly recommended by me for teens and young adults, too!
I read an ARC of this book and suspect some aspects, such as the names of characters, may change in the published version. Thanks to the author and publishers, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
