It was okay and I might try the next one, but there were a couple of things I didn't liked, because they were too unrealistic.. The way Megan and Adam are drawn to each other, the whole love-deep-love-at-first-sight-thing was weird. And how Megan just seemed to accept everything without hesitation and problems, like she expected her life to be that way. Nope, couldn't buy that. And I didn't get a real connection with Megan or any of the other characters in the book. They were a bit flat. he story takes place in Ireland, so I expected more about the surroundings.

The story. Beware, spoilers!

Megan has been traveling with her father. Since the death of her mother, her father is restless and she goes to a lot of different schools. She never made any friends, but now they've settled in a lovely place. Her father has a great job and he seems to be happy to settle down. Megan meets a couple of girls who she befriends with. But, from the first day she started at school, she is mesmerized by Adam. He and his sister have a strange reputation, but she's drawn to him and he apparently to her.

They begin to date with each other and she's sucked into his life. Then she finds out that her accident (her mother died and she got injured really bad, it left a scar in her neck) wasn't just an accident. And the scar isn't just a scar, it's a mark. The mark of a Carrier. It appears that she has been chosen to be one of the elements. She is air and she's very special, because most of the time, a Carrier must be born with it. They made her to be the Carrier (difficult to explain, but you've read the book, so you understand.)


There are a lot of people who want them to die, because they can restore the harmony, but they want them for their power. Thew want to take the power and use it to rule the world. And when the good guys wants Megan and Adam to be apart (there's some kind of prophecy about a fifth power and they don't know how their child will be) there's more trouble coming. Can their love for each other survive?

Have you read this book? What was your opinion?

  1. Hmmm..seen this one around, though haven't read it myself yet. Awesome review, even though the book didn't shine that much for you :) That's too bad that it was so unrealistic :( I hate it when you can't seem to believe any of what's going on in a book...takes away the magic of it, doesn't it... Not going to read the story, in case I pick this up later on, haha!

  2. You are so right. If their love would develop during the story, it would be so much more believable. Now, it's more about lust for me and it spoiled the story. If I were you, I would leave this one. I'm going to read the next one, just because I want to find out what will happen. And I've picked this one up for the cover. It's bloody gorgeous.
