You’ll never see me unless I want you to…
I am different. I have always been different, but no one can know or my life will be in danger. So I hide in plain sight, wearing drab clothes and thick glasses and trying to be invisible. I’m so good at hiding, no one has ever noticed me. Until Ian…the mysterious and oh-so-cute boy I know I need to avoid.
Now I have been seen. And more terrifying still, I am wanted—by those who would protect me and those who would destroy everything and everyone I love. But if they’re all terrified about who I am, wait until they see what I can do…I loved this story. It is basically a type of retelling of Atlantis and mermaids and characters of the sea.
Alison is a girl that keeps her head down and works very hard not to be noticed because she is different and she knows being different isn’t always a good thing. Especially when being different means that you can put thoughts and ideas into others minds. And she feels entirely alone. The only tie she has met anyone that knows what she is doing, she is warned never to let anyone know because she would be in a world of danger.
In comes Ian and Brandy, who have been searching for her, not just to help her but to have her save them in a coming war.
The reader is right in the middle of everything as Alison is chased and her powers are discovered. She starts to learn how to use those powers to help her fellow mythological creatures and begins the process of possibly falling in love along the way.
I can’t wait for the next installment to see if this love string can be pulled and brought to fruition or if the nemesis of them all will find a way to rear his ugly head once again.
