As soon as i started reading this book i couldn't bring myself to stop. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review and have to say a big THANK YOU to ms firman for writing such a great book.
The story revolves around our leading lady Addy whom comes from a long line of overseers whom are essentially a guardian per se of the overseers stone which contains the power of a group of beings called akori whom look like humans except for blue markings on their hands. They also have varying abilities that the overseers stone blocks. Addy and her grandfather are the last of the overseers and once fate (addys grandfather) dies Addy is expected to take over. This is a very large responsibility and although she has been training to be the overseers her whole life alot of people are sceptical as she will be the first female overseer ever ( no pressure right lol)
A group of rebel akori called mesen have a theory that by killing the last remaining overseer and destroying the stone all there power will be returned and no longer will the akori scatter (instead of being killed as they are immortal or when they use up all of there limited power they disappear for 20 years)
If all of this isn't enough to deal with throw in a hottie whom she has known her whole life and suddenly seems to notice her in a more then friends way and a sexy mysterious hunk who has been drawn to the estate where she live and she connects straight away with. All of this on top of heart breaking betrayal from those she cares most about and twists at every turn. What is not to love about this book.
I now shall have to go and buy the other books in the series to see what happens to addy next and if the guy I'm rooting for wins Addys heart.
