Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste… Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head.  She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

What I thought:

I have been putting this one off for a long time. Now I am wondering why I didn't get to it sooner! Sure, it was a bit like twilight (one person can read all minds save one) but better written and a much better story. Plus, no sparkly vampires. Instead we get some well developed characters. Ever's new life and friends were fun to learn about, while anxiously waiting to hear more on the past.

Ever, even knowing what her aunt is thinking, still has a hard time reaching out. This was very real to me, she didn't just pretend it didn't happen, maybe even dwell a bit, but it was masterfully written. I was really wondering where the tulips came from, and I'm not sure I'm really liking that part of it, but we shall see if I really like it or not when I get to the second book.

I gave it 4 stars!
