In a world where everyone is gifted, be it in dancing, lightning-bringing, or death-giving, Ever is born…all-powerful.
For this gift, she is kidnapped and trafficked at birth. Fifteen years later, Ever still hasn’t seen even a glimmer of her powerful gift. Locked in an abandoned mall in New York City, she’s fighting to survive her captivity, her brutal guards, and the other gifted kids in her cell. She would do anything to escape.
Fox is gifted with time manipulation. Like Ever, he hasn’t come into his gift yet; like Ever, he hates the mall; and like Ever, he longs to be free. But there’s one thing he values above his freedom—it’s Ever’s love…
…yet, when the two make a desperate attempt to escape, this attempt proves so dark and twisted that it just might destroy Ever’s love for Fox.
This was a really interesting book! From the description, it's like of like X-Men, but with groups of people with the same ability, vs. lots of individual abilities. And then there's Ever. Who's supposed to be able to channel emotions into people. But who hasn't yet actually showed any sign of having that amount of power.
Well, besides the fact that she can see out of other people's eyes since her own eyes are blind, but only her "family" of 4, the other 3 kids in the book store know about it. But that's not really the same thing, and so not the reason why Ever's trapped in the book store.
I didn't really like Fox. He was so high and mighty, like he was so much more important then the rest of them. He was the one that taught himself, and then the others, how to read. But that didn't mean that the rest of them were stupid! Mostly it was in the word choices that he made when he was talking, you'd expect that kind of taking from a 60 year old old money lady, or something, not Fox.
I really enjoyed that twist at the end, and how Ever grew up quickly, and yeah, I don't know if I want a sequel or not, because yeah, I'd like to go back to this world, and there are some things resolved, but it ends on a good note, so yeah, I don't know!
Yeah, this was a pretty darned good, and I enjoyed it!
