Chela’s only hope is the Caduceans, slayers sworn to protect the last seven Light Keepers and the ancient memories they share.

This is a really difficult review for me to write. I really enjoyed the characters and was able to connect with them. But, the story was so fast that at times I felt a little bit lost and had to really pay close attention to everything that was going on in the story to understand what had happened next.
The book is a dystopian that starts off in the year 2067, which is 55 years after the Tidal Wars. Chela is visiting her brother in what seems to be a hospital. He had an accident and everyone claims that he fell, but Chela believes he was pushed. Her brother is basically comatose and when she sees his hand move, she gets into an altercation with the physician.
The book sucked me in from the first chapter and the incoming of Faris just made me that more interested. Faris is Chela’s protector and he and Chela form a special bond to the point that they can talk to each other in their minds.
Chela was a kick butt kind of chic and tried to always do the right thing to protect those that she cared about. The others kept a lot of secrets from her, but she just kept on trudging and trying to figure it all out. Her friends were awesome too and I really felt for Jalen. He put himself out there for her.
Even though, I tended to get a tad confused, the story held my attention all the way through to the end! The ending was kind of heart breaking and I am looking forward to the second book. The story line and the uniqueness have piqued my interest and I am a sucker for a good love triangle.
