Alex is thrown into a world of vampires and seers all of which she didn't know existed until she was attacked in a dark alley way by rogue vampires. Being saved by the Rectinatti vampires Alex soon learns she herself is coming upon her transformation into a seer. Weeks away from her transformation Alex has already started to feel and sense others emotions around her, her strongest bond to Sage. She can sense him stronger than anyone else in the house, including Markus who Alex finds that her attraction for impossible to ignore.
Closer to her transformation Alex starts having vivid dreams of her brother who she believed has died in a horrific car wreck. She realizes her dreams are telling her that Levi is not dead, but he is entrapped by the rogue leader and the longer it takes her and the others to find her brother, the more likely he will be turned bad as he is drained of all the goodness left in body.
I enjoyed this book a great deal and found that the more I read the more I liked. For me personally as a reader I feel the two characters that had stronger pull together were Alex and Sage. I was disappointed to not see them together as well as they fit in the story. The story flowed well and each character was well defined. I will read book two and cannot wait for it to come out.
Alex was quite sure that "gifted" was a term which delusional parents applied to their strictly average children, that vampires were gorgeous dead guys in her eighth-grade girls' novels, and "Seers" was a middle schooler's misspelling of a department store famous for power tools. Teachers, however, don't know everything, and it’s Alex’s turn to be educated.
Hoping just to clear her mind, Alex Crocker leaves work for a late night run across the small city of Bristol, Massachusetts. Instead she is dragged violently into a feud she never would have known existed. She quickly learns she’s being hunted for possessing a gift she never wanted, one that could kill her or provide her the power she’ll need to protect herself and those she cares for.
Despite her desire to maintain her independence, Alex quickly becomes tied to the Rectinatti vampires through bonds of friendship, loyalty, and most surprisingly, love. These bonds, coupled with the new knowledge that she is in grave danger are enough to make her want to stay, but it’s learning what is really at stake that drives her to fight.
