Seventeen is a life changing age for Emma Wise.
As her family's sole survivor in a car crash, she is left with a broken arm and a few scrapes and bruises. But these are only outward marks; inside, her heart is broken and the pieces scattered.

Whisked away to Alaska, to an aunt she’s never met, Emma starts over. Secrets unveil themselves and now…she doesn't even know who or what she is.

A centuries old prophecy places Emma in the heart of danger. Creatures of horrifying and evil proportions are after her, and it will take Emma, her aunt, and six, gorgeously captivating Guardians to keep her safe. But, if she can survive until her eighteenth birthday... things will change.

My Review

Emma has just found out that she has lost her parents and has to move to Alaska all in the same day. You would think things couldn’t get any worse. Well they do. On the way to Alaska Emma is attacked and not to mention the jolt that she gets every time she touches Kade. She is on a journey of self discovery. She will fins out who she is…or what she is. She will have to face many challenges if she wants to live to see 18.

It’s a battle to the death; it’s Light vs. Dark in this new installment by Cameo Renae.

 I knew from the beginning that this was going to be a fast paced book and I loved that it was. It wasn’t too fast that you didn’t know what was going on, but there was always something happening. The whole book only spans within a couple of days. I found the story line very interesting and I loved how Mrs. Renae put her own spin on things. There were still a lot of unanswered questions by the end, but I know that they will be answered in the next installment. All the characters were really relateable and I like all the different personalities everyone had. Oh and the fight scenes were amazing. I felt like I was actually there and seeing it happen. I could picture everything in my mind perfectly. GOSH I loved this book. The ending of the book leaves you hanging on the end of your bed…..or seat. I was just dumbstruck with what happen at the end. I was just like no way no way NO WAY!!!!! How could you do this to me Mrs. Renae HOW?!?!?! LOL and I’m not going to be able to get answers until the next one and that is FOREVER AWAY!!!!! I need to know. I’ve lost sleep wanting to know what is going to happen. OK, I’m going to stop my rant now LOL.

By the end of the book it will have you wanting more!!!!!!!!!!!! And have you question, Light or Dark. Which would you choose?

Emma- I could tell that she was a very sweet girl, but she has been through so much that we didn’t really get to see it. Her death was always in the forefront of her mind, which made her sad most of the book. But I could tell by the end of the book that she is going to be a force to wreckin with in the next book.

Kade- Kade is a little wicked. No, he is not evil. It’s the grins, touches, and conversations that he has with Emma. On the other hand he is a jokester. He is loyal to a fault and would do anything to protect the ones he loves. He proves that over and over again in the book.

“Thanks guys. I’m gonna miss you SO much,” I said, as tears stung my eyes again.
“We’re going to miss you too! What are we going to do without you our last, crucial year? We’re finally going to be seniors,” Lia said, her eyes tearing as soon as she saw mine.
Jeremy looked at me, and a single tear grazed his cheek. He quickly turned away and lifted his glasses, quickly wiping his face with his shirt. That was the first time I’d ever seen Jeremy get emotional.
“You guys will be fine. And it won’t be forever. I promise to email and send pictures.”
“You better,” Lia said, wagging her finger at me.
And then… something happened. A sudden euphoric feeling; an unexplainable heat shot through every cell in my body. My pulse quickened, along with my breath, and tingles pricked my skin. A
rush of adrenaline flooded my veins and my surroundings began to haze. I grasped onto the edge of the bed, taking in long, deep breaths.
“Hey, are you okay?” Jeremy asked, scooting over to me, grabbing hold of my shoulders.
“Emma, what’s wrong?” Lia called, jumping behind me, pounding my back.
Hello! I’m not choking! I wanted to speak those words, but I couldn’t answer them. It was like all the breath had been sucked out of my lungs.
Then…there was a knock at the door, and we all turned to look.
