For small-town rebel Dani Webber magic and monsters are no more real than the Easter Bunny… until the day she accidentally stops time. Dani quickly discovers that not only do supernaturals exist, but she herself is one of them. This is great news for her life-long best friend Russ, who can finally come clean about his own supernatural status and his undying love for her. Before the two can start to enjoy the long overdue relationship, Dani is taken by a powerful council of supernaturals who believe she is the Chosen One destined to save them from extinction.

As if being kidnapped and expected to save the world isn’t bad enough, an ancient prophecy warns of the Chosen One’s dark nature: “Only the truest love will keep her an agent for good.” The council believes they know who this “true love” is and, unfortunately, that person isn’t Russ. The mysterious, powerful and devastatingly handsome Seer is the last person Dani wants in her life, but when she starts having visions of a horrific future, she has no one else to turn to for help.

Soon Dani finds herself torn between two very different boys with two very different opinions of whom she can trust. With the visions getting worse and time running out, Dani is forced to put aside her feelings and work with both the Seer and Russ before an ancient evil is unleashed upon the earth.

My Opinion

Dani Webber got one heck of a birthday surprise. Her best friend Russ reveals he is a warlock. She gets sick and discovers that she is a supernatural too. But what kind of supernatural she is well, that is to be determined. As she grows in her powers her cravings to be around other supernatural will grow stronger.

The supernatural Council kidnaps her for her own protection. After almost dying she wakes up married to the seer, Gabriel. This of course makes Dani suspicious of the Council and all that they do. Dani begins to have visions like Gabe. The Council refuses to believe her visions. Since the council will not help her, she and Gabe set out along with Russ to fix the things in her visions.

Okay, I will be honest I was not feeling the Gabe/Dani love. I felt more like she had Stockholm Syndrome but hey their attraction works for them. I felt incredibly bad for Russ- lost his mom, lost his gal- who was his bestie, finds out horrible things about his daddy.

Dani is a likeable gal and I loved how she questioned authority. I did not like how Gabe went along with the Council the whole time. I felt like he did not have a backbone at all.

My Rating 3 out of 5 stars

Favorite Quote “What do you suggest I do instead? Run upstairs and jump into the Seer’s bed like a good little slave girl and pop out some uber-powerful babies so that the council can claim them too? I don’t think so.”

Other People

Russ- Dani’s best friend and a warlock
Duncan- vampire, Dani’s guardian
Alex- Russ’ daddy, a warlock
Councilor- lead councilman, kinda a jerk
