Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

You must betray your heart and walk amongst the darkness in order to find the truest light. Opening her eyes to an imposing prison of complete darkness, Kasha is accused of possessing powers and abilities she had no previous knowledge of until the moment she comes face to face with herself while meditating. Haunted by memories strung together by lies and deceit, she soon discovers that maybe her beloved grandmother kept a few secrets she hadn't been aware of. Secrets that could be her salvation... or her undoing. As she struggles to control her newfound powers, only time will tell if they will be enough to help her decipher who has imprisoned her or what they want from her. She must search for the answers and the freedom she so desperately desires. Could a handsome guy who vows to help her get away prove to be the man of her dreams... or perhaps her worst nightmare? Not knowing who to trust, she must find a way to escape before she pays the ultimate price and finds herself taken by the darkness.

Lupe's Review:

Wow! Right off the bat, Felicia Starr sucks you into the story line. So great! While I would like to have known just how she was so readily abducted and for how long, in the end, it doesn't change the story at all. For Kasha, being abducted in the middle of the day was not expected and then to find out about the supernatural at the same time when she wakes?? Crazy! I would have flipped out! I really do like the development of the characters and so far, I am so suspicious of EVERYONE....except Gavin. He just seems awesome. I'm so afraid that in the end he won't be and I'll be so disappointed! Ugh! And the angst/romance line? Very well done. Not too graphic, but still a little TOO EL James for me, where the language can sound too childish. I'm not sure If the author knows who her readership is going to be? YA? Adult? Both? If so, some of the language had to change. And I don't mean with vulgarity but definitely not words words a 15 year old would use if Kasha is out of college already.

Overall, I am super excited to see where this series goes and I can't wait for the next installment.  The end was such a cliffie!! So good!
