Forgetting who you are is hard, but not as hard as remembering. Remembering that you have no idea how to face your demons, how to save the lost.
Charlie is at a sacred threshold.
The ‘glass box’, as she calls it, is slowly falling. Her childhood has ended. The moment she has yearned for, the moment where she can go and do anything, anything at all without seeking permission is now. She’d dreamed of this time, all of her friends had, but now that it’s here, she doesn't know which way to run, or if she should even run at all.
Charlie knew that running would be a goodbye forever, and she didn’t want that, she wanted to freeze the time she was in, to stay in the calm before the storm, the illusion that she could out wit the ones who seek her, hold the one she loves, and play the music that gives her passion. She’ll soon discover no one can hide from their fate, that time does not stop in place, and that whether she chooses to perceive it or not, the darkness has come.
What Charlie feared most, losing him, is a threat now more than ever. A realm, a dark and twisted dream world has called him, and now she must fight to save him, and others like him. Standing in her way is a soul from another life, a boy that promises that he will destroy her world, to save her life. With this threat in hand, with the dark path that her friends are on, Charlie must fight to find a way to leave, to trust that beyond her dimension there are souls that can help her, help all of them. The only question is, will she find them before it's to late, and if she can't, how is she going to use her gift, the gifts they all share to save them

My thoughts

This book is just as good as the first one in this series. It is well written and has a unique theme that I really like. Who wouldn't like the idea of soul mates and different dimensions with gifted people. I just love to be inside Magee's world. It is amazing. The story is both sad and beautiful with a feel of deep love, confusion and desperation. This is a story about protecting the ones they love and do anything to get rid of a hunted past.

Both Charlie and Draven has great personalities. I love both of them. And they have such a strong love for each other but they both have a jealous streak that is causing trouble for them through out the story. In the end they have to learn how to trust each other if they want to overcome the hardship they face, but I guess we will have to see what happens in the next book to see how that goes.

The story is exiting from the very start and has a kind of fast pace but not to fast. It was actually perfect for the story line. You will keep turning pages in this one for sure. Because you want to know how they will deal with the darkness that surrounds them and will they ever come Chara the dimension they all hope to one day be able to flee to? I guess you will have to read this if you want to find out! 

This was a great read that I strongly recommend.
