Ember has always known she doesn't belong in this world. But when she tries to correct the mistake, she wakes to find herself in a mental institution.
She's soon drawn to Taren, the mysterious boy with hazel eyes. He's not what he seems, but what is he?
When chaos erupts, they are forced to flee the institution together, and the secret that Taren has been keeping brings Ember closer to understanding her own. And leads her to... the Gateway
What I say:
First thing is first. Christina sent me this book to review and I have to thank her I enjoyed every second of it, and didn't want to put it down to do my chores, but I was thinking about it the entire time^^^Also I have to apologise for taking so long to do the review as I've had a hectic week.
This book was amazing and breathtaking, it's really well written and a great debut for an author.
She obviously did a lot of research and new what she was speaking about.
At first I didn't see the paranormal part about the book until.... well the demons appear :) But that made it more interesting because we get to learn more about Ember before everything turns.
Taren is a great character, mysterious, protective and in need of some anger management classes sometimes, he is the hero willing to jump in a pit full of demons to save the ones he loves. He's also immensely cute. And his story is sooo twisted I loved it :)
Callie seems like a sweet girl, although sometimes she's far from that. And her and her roommates provide the humor in this story.
Kat is a great guardian, although her scene in the disco gave me a sense of Deja-Vu for some reason.
The secondary characters were also great and I loved Master Dogan and his zen things.
I hope there's more books to come so I can hear more about Ember, Taren and the rest :)
I give this book 5 stars out of 5, for the sole reason that I can't give it more.
