Snow has always felt her life was out of place, jagged like the rocks of a cliff never escaping the whip of the wind. Months after her parents’ death, sudden changes make her world flip flop. And more, the next day gave proof to her lifelong questions. She was right. Nothing is ever as it seemed.
Being able to read a person’s entire lifeline is disturbing. Having another read your own is worse. Ancient magic courses through Snow’s veins. And she is not the only one. Hyde Parker resurfaces from her past to protect against those who would hurt her for the power she holds, but even he has an ulterior motive that has nothing to do with just saving her life.
Snow and Hyde’s destinies were intertwined so long ago, so much that neither thinks it is an accident. Of course, he knows the truth. And he will do anything to keep the other guardians from taking her.
Anastacia, or Stace, was marked from birth belonging to the Goddess Anat. Her mother launched a balanced plan to create five who would change the tides of the ongoing disputes among the supernatural factions trying to survive in a human world. A prophecy was created to unite them into peace and Stace has to believe she is the one to do that. And what happens when you’re the last to know?
Stace has spent her entire life as the Valkyrie faction court princess. Now sent into a den of Hunter lions by her own father, her goal is find the one who took her twin brother, the heir to her own court. Her obstacles seem few, but there are other cloak-and-dagger factors at work.
Motherless since birth, no one to turn to, resolved to have answers, Stace accepts a Hunter’s aid. Stace’s brother is kept in what they thought was an abandoned warehouse, but soon finds out that the greater the plot thickens, there are more secrets around every corner. It’s guarded by the very Hunters she is now putting her trust in, her own father’s court, and the rumored heartless, evil plotted Vampire faction. Once she has the information she needs, she planned to leave the Hunters and begin a rescue mission, but that doesn’t even come close to the bigger plan she knows nothing about. She didn’t count on Calum Green getting in the way, nor making friends for the first time in her life with supposed enemy strangers who never hesitate to help her in her darkest moments.
And…others are marked like her. A prophecy that holds answers but no advice. What does it all mean? Weres? Vampires? She’s heard of their retributions if crossed the wrong way. Can she conquer this mission or just end up just playing out the fantasy prophecy she doesn’t understand anyway? Or will she uncover the greatest conspiracy the factions have ever held? And no human chose.

Okay, not okay by my standards for my teen readers. Plot is fabulous, ideas great. Dystopian society where, as always, our government screwed up some of their own experiments and BAM, we have a zombiefied nation of the brain eaters and the trying to get away from the brain eaters while trying to solve the problem.
Best part of the book11stuck in a would be (Target) and the rest of the world out there. A dream come true for many teens.
If a zombie reader fan, will love, if….if you are okay with the rather creepy explicit scene with young teens smack in the middle (pg. 150) where peeping toms and inappropriate actions (by teens) take place among a book that was going just fine without it. Would have been one of my recommends if that scene had been left out. Can’t put it on the shelf for that reason. 😦
