Em is back again. From Em in Embattled, and her reincarnations as Jasmine in Empowered and Abby in Embraced, Emily (Em) is at last coming to terms with her obsession about that other world “up there.” She is almost powerless to resist the pull that draws her like a magnet to Yves’s world. Their love is never in question; only Emily’s acceptance of it is.
We are drawn into the story so completely that we forget that planet hopping is probably not possible. As we are engrossed in the novel, interplanetary travel becomes quite acceptable and we welcome any new magic-like tricks.
Most of the citizens of the new world are welcoming and friendly, but Algar immediately gets Emily’s alarm bells ringing. Not only is he obnoxious, but he appears to be behind an evil plot that could ruin Yves's world.
Emily must come to terms with choosing whether to stay and help Yves fight the evil plot, or throw away his love and go back home to the security of Earth.
