Yeah, I just got the message I have won a copy from the First Read giveaway. Can't wait for it to arrive! Yeapeeee! * does a happy dance*

P.S. Real review when I read it of course. :D

08.12.2013 Got my book yesterday! :) *runs off to read *

18.03.2014 So life got in the way, but here I am finally writing my review.

Warning: The following review may contain spoilers.

I loved the book! I want to thank very much Mrs. Taylor for sending it to me. I have read it 3 times by now. It's interesting and very capturing. Read it on one sitting the first time.
I loved the idea of Twin flames. And the identity of Charlotte's mother thin flame? Wow, I totally didn't saw that coming. It kept me guessing the whole time.
I didn't really liked Charlotte, I admit. Nor I disliked her. She was sort of nice but made some really stupid decisions. Caleb's love for her seemed a little obsessive to me, so my opinion of him was left a bit neutral, too.
I didn't believed Hayden that he had fallen for Charlotte. He is a class one jerk. And the time was too short so....
So who is my favorite character in the book? Guess!

Sophie, of course. I loved her. She kind and funny, very vibrant character and extremely likable. Did I mentioned that she is also loyal? If the is another installment I really want to see more of her. That girl have a potential.

Mentioning another installment leads me to the fact that I would love to see one. Everything in the book was nicely wrapped and mysteries solved but the ending was open enough to suggest it's a possibility so I am hopeful. ( )

This was great, incredibly interesting, dark and scary mystery/crime - I don't even know what genre I would better place it! Somehow at the beginning I missed the point this is a YA and was surprised...The suspense gets built very fast, not explored fully, I mean, the characters could have more depth and developed - the story moves on very fast. I was hoping to get to know what happens and I could not guess ..., I was hoping for Charlotte to be a little bit more sensible, hahaha!
But it was UNIQUE, I have not read anything on this topic before. It also draws the sense how world, one country may be controlled and is a piece of spider's web. How sects work underneath and how influential they are for the rest of the society and one may never know...plus Charlotte wants to find the truth about her mum's disappearance...which makes it so complex. All the findings bring so many loose ends and creates a complex truth at the end.

Four stars because main character at around mid-of the book start to become so annoying at times, throwing herself at the danger, falling right into the trap and aiming for it. I mean, if she knew the family has stolen her belongings and will do everything to kill her if they got a chance - why would you drag yourself there?
Why would you deny any help and crush to the 1st guy you have if you know he is the one you want to be with and LIKE to be with..?
What was it about going for the one who took you away without even asking your opinion, without letting you to express yourself???
These were the faulty parts why I was getting angry at Charlotte and I am looking forward for the next books to seek the explanation I was hoping for, but obviously this is trilogy...and first book can't solve it all, can it? ( )
