I received a KINDLE Edition of this book through a giveaway on the internet and the following is my honest opinion.
Decisions, decisions. What decision would you make if you learn you’re the salvation of your people who got banished to earth because of a sibling rivalry on your home planet Aramith? You didn’t choose to be born on the 12th day of the 12th month; it had been merely your fate. But this is the fate which has befallen Aubrey.
This book doesn’t start at the beginning of the sibling rivalry which had caused the banishment of the entire Shaw family and their relatives to Earth, it jumps right in where Aubrey is being pursued because she’s now reached the age where she must now offer her soul in a public sacrifice. And who is pursuing her, to start with off it is Joshua, her former boyfriend, who she still loves. If this is not enough, what would you think if her own father is the one who’s leading the shape-shifting Hawk unit, which Joshua has joined, that is doing the pursuing?
While her father and Joshua might be shape-shifter Aubrey is not without any powers of her own; she’s a jumper who can possess any body and use these bodies to hide from detection.
To add to the complexity of the storyline the author brings in a love interest, Coy, for Aubrey to get involved it. Coy is a Jekyll and Hyde sort of character, he’s nice and sweet one moment and evil and dark the next. There’s an apparent connection between this guy’s parents and Aubrey mother which might explain his interest in keeping her safe and out of harm’s way.
This creates a love triangle Aubrey really doesn’t want to be involved. Does she go with the mysterious strange who comes with lies and a lot of secrets, or does gamble with the apparent love she still shares with Joshua? If she gambles with Joshua it could mean the end of her existence. To find out is she lives or dies, you’ll have to read the book.
In this book, Ms. Dempster has once again combined multiple genres into a solid single piece of fiction which is sure to please a wide audience of readers. The book has caught my interest, which is why I’ve giving it 5 STARS.
