Pretending to be human to survive, Lu is living in fear of discovery when an incident reveals her astonishing powers and she becomes the target of a manhunt. Magnus, the stranger of her dreams rescues her but stays emotionally distant. When a shocking secret is revealed, they must risk everything to save their kind from extinction in this fascinating paranormal romance.
This steady to fast paced plot compels readers with suspense, excitement and romance. The well written scenes and details capture the imagination while the thrilling story draws the reader in and ensures that they have to read every last detail. The strong captivating characters grab the reader’s attention and the well- orchestrated suspense and action adds lots of excitement to the story.
The attraction Lu feels for Magnus began in her dreams and burns hotter upon meeting him for real. Due to some issues he keeps his distance and the romance progresses slowly throughout the book. That keeps the anticipation high. The reader can’t help but get caught up in their story as they try to deal with their emotions and what life has thrown at them, especially Lu as everything she thought she knew is turned upside down.
This story is really long and it is not action on top of action, but that makes no difference because the reader gets completely caught up in the story and there is no way to put it down before they know the end. I also want to point out that I was a little worried at the beginning. It threw me a bit considering how much I liked the previous books, but it is a short section and soon everything became clear and it adds insight to Lu’s life. Other than that, like I said I couldn’t put it down. There was just so much I had to know and I loved the ending…very fitting.
In New Vienna, capital of the oppressive global government formed after the Flash, three things are certain: the sun is poisonous, speaking out is dangerous, and being different will get you killed.
And Lumina Bohn is extraordinarily different.
Living in terror of discovery, Lu knows nothing of her past—but she knows she must pretend to be human to survive. When an incident at work triggers her astonishing powers, she becomes the target of an international manhunt. Only one person can save her: Magnus, the enigmatic stranger haunting her dreams.
Magnus rescues the outcasts called Aberrants from capture and torture. As Lu begins exploring her powers among her people, her feelings for Magnus intensify. He’s determined to stay emotionally distant, yet their smoldering passion soon becomes impossible to resist.
But when a shocking revelation threatens the lives of every remaining Aberrant, Lu and Magnus must risk everything, confronting their enemies in an explosive final stand to save their kind from the darkest fate of all: extinction.
