Forgetting who you are, your ambitions, your passions is crippling….but remembering – embracing your purpose with a new sense of determination is more than empowering….it's life altering. Charlie Myers is on a life altering path that will cause the dammed to humble in silence. One night…just a few friends, how could it go so wrong? That was the question seventeen year old Charlie Myers was asking when she found herself in the ER. Outwardly nothing was wrong with Charlie, she was a vision of perfect heath, internally she was battling a raging headache…one the doctor told her she would overcome shortly, but Charlie knew something else was wrong …very wrong.Part of her had been stolen…she was missing memories. Those memories were sacred. They held the key to her sanity. They told her that the sinister whispers, the shadows that came to life before her were not as ominous as she felt they were. They held the bond with her late father, a famed musician. They caused her to forget the one talent that allowed her to face the darkness that haunted her every waking hour. They also masked a much deeper bond, the face of the one that had stolen her heart, long before the age of seventeen.Sitting in the ER with her angry mother she couldn’t figure out what she was missing, or even how. Her thoughts told her that she needed to protect Britain, a friend of hers, but that didn’t make any sense – Britain didn’t need to be protected from anyone, he was strong, young, and absurdly wealthy. Charlie also knew that even though her friend Bianca called Charlie her best friend, she didn’t trust her …she was almost sure she despised her, but she couldn’t figure out why, or understand how random thoughts were telling her that she adored both Britain and Bianca – that they were her saviors – that they brought silence to the unstoppable whispers, but the silence scared Charlie. In her mind anyone or anything that could bring silence to something that dark could not be good.Charlie wanted to stay in NY, figure out what she was missing, why, and who was behind it all, but her mother had other plans. Against her will, Charlie was sent to Salem to live with her sister, within that small town Charlie found her memories and so much more. Her story begins now.
This book was completely captivating from the very first word. It was completely amazing. There are really no other words to describe it in my thin vocabulary. I mean I knew it would be good since I´ve already read three books in the insight series by Magee... but really, amazing!
I fell in love with this story and the characters. Magee has a way of just captivate you as a reader. I was completely lost inside this story and felt I was unable to get out of it until the last word was read. This book was enthralling from the very first page and you are thrown right in the middle of the story. There was not a dull moment.
I love Charlie. She has no memory of so much in her life she is missing the best part of her self and it´s like she is incomplete but she is not the one to give up. She is such a strong and amazing character and you just have to love her. I also really like that since she doesn´t know who she is, neither does the reader that in itself makes this story intriguing and compels you to keep reading.
Then we have Draven. I just love that name by the way. Well what can I say about him without giving away to much. Well of course there is a love story between Charlie and Draven but it is a love story like not other and it is completely captivating. Magee is so good at describing the characters feelings. It´s like the reader is right there and feel them too.
Like in the insight series I was so captivated by this story line. I love the world Magee has created. A world with many dimensions and true love. A true soul mate for everyone but the trick is that your soul mate might be in another dimension.
This book is so worth your time and even though this is a sister series to The insight series it is not a problem to read it as stand alone series. This is a book you should pick up right this minute and start reading!
