Synopsis: Gwyneth’s chronicle began long before she witnessed her family being brutally murdered and lost her sight. Living as an orphan, her world is anything but black and white. She sees her vivid future that promises suffering and death. Cursed with these visions, Gwyneth pretends to be like everyone else, until a dangerously charismatic, young man walks into her life. From the moment Jace lays eyes on her, he refuses to believe Gwyneth is normal. He knows information about her past that only a psychopathic stalker could dig up. He reveals her dirty secrets. Unbeknownst details of Gwyneth’s former life unfurl.
Unsure of what to believe, Gwyneth searches for answers that lead to her inconceivable fate. However, the ancient truth she uncovers is more dangerous than any high school romance she’d bargained for. Gwyneth is drug into an inevitable battle brewing between immortal Gods and ageless Hunters – both of which have sworn to swear to kill her if deemed necessary.
My Review: I'd like to thank the author for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
What a strange book. The premise of the story is good. She's one of the Fates reborn, and has no idea. In fact, if it were written a little clearer, this probably would have been one of my favorite books this year. But it was so confusing. It was the visions the main character has that messed the book up.
However, its the visions that push you to keep reading, at least they did for me. The visions had me so confused that I needed to keep reading in hopes that it all congealed correctly and answered my questions. They never did, and at the end of the book, I was left wondering, what exactly happened.
