When I first saw this book, I wasn't going to bother reading it. The blurb makes it out to be cliché and over the top, and I didn't fancy another Twilight. But still, I gave it a try and bought it. So one rainy afternoon, while I was still feeling lost after finishing my beloved L.J.Snith novel, I decided to read this. I was gripped from the first chapter. It had an intriguing start, and had a nice feeling of normality to it.

It starts off by warming us to the characters: Sky, her adoptive parents and her new friend Tina at her new American school. It follows Sky through her day to day school-life as she tries to fit in. Then, Zed Benedict is introduced. At first, he seems like just another wannabe tough guy. He's cool, rebellious and a jerk. But then at a football match, Sky replies to the voice she hears in her head-Zed's. This is when he realizes she is a Savant, and his Soulfinder, the perfect match Savants search for all their lives.

I like the way Sky finds it all hard to believe; too often in paranormal romances the girl is usually taken by the guy staright away and believes ever word he says. Well, that's not realistic at all, is it? But Zed gives up trying to convince her and after some time asks her out. They are just a normal couple for a while, but then they get shot at in the woods. This is when the Benedicts (a family of 7 brothers and their parents, Zed is the youngest) realize the danger they are in. Someone is out to get them.

Zed and Sky don't get to see eachother that often, but when Sky is taken by an evil Savant, she starts to unlock her true powers, and realizes exactly how much Zed means to her. Together, they uncover her dark past and face the co-operation that wants the Benedicts dead.

All in all, an exciting, realistic novel full of twists. I hope there is a sequel, but if there isn't one, I'm happy in the knowledge that there was a satisfying ending.
