I can see this being a favourite for YA fans. It has just the right amount of supernatural/paranormal flair with a large smidgen of mythology. The main character is part of an ancient bloodline society and that genetic oddity comes with an ability. So far so good, except this society is run like Big Brother via the upper echelon and is reminiscent of dictatorial oppression at its finest.I liked the fact that the author has interwoven some achy breaky heart subplots, but managed to keep it clean enough so younger readers can enjoy it. It has solid characters, both evil and good, with the exception of one or two that are somewhere in between. The concept is interesting for a series and strong enough to relay a message without being outlandish. I received a free copy of this book for my review.
