Seventeen is a life changing age for Emma Wise.
As her family's sole survivor in a car crash, she is left with a broken arm and a few scrapes and bruises. But these are only outward marks; inside, her heart is broken and the pieces scattered.

Whisked away to Alaska, to an aunt she’s never met, Emma starts over. Secrets unveil themselves and now…she doesn't even know who or what she is.

A centuries old prophecy places Emma in the heart of danger. Creatures of horrifying and evil proportions are after her, and it will take Emma, her aunt, and six, gorgeously captivating Guardians to keep her safe. But, if she can survive until her eighteenth birthday... things will change.

My Review:

First of all, I really like the cover of this book, it fits the story very well. The cover was what got me to read the book and it didn't disappoint. It had everything that I like in a paranormal/fantasy book, from suspense to really hot guys. This book definitely made it to my favorite's list. 

When Emma Wise survives a terrible car crash, she is whisked away to Alaska to live with her Aunt. Filled with grieve over the death of her parents, she doesn't realize that her life was going to change forever after that. After arriving to Alaska, Emma is filled with more questions than answers when finds herself dealing with strange events. For once, she feels lost and doesn't know what to do, especially when she finds herself drawn to Kade, her escort/guardian. When a series of events happen to her and those around her, she discovers that her car accident may have been intentional after all and that someone clearly wants her dead. Now it's up to her to find out what she is and why would someone want her dead. 

Overall, I enjoyed the story. It had great elements to a good paranormal story. It started with a slow pace and then it felt too rushed to me. There isn't a lot of character development, other than discovering things about Emma's origins. The story itself was good, but it could have been much better had the author kept it at a solid pace. What I really like was the chemistry between the characters, they all have very distinct personalities that made me laugh and feel for them. Kade's personality was my favorite, mainly because he spends a lot more time with Emma and he cares about her more than anything. There is a cliffhanger at the end, that wasn't bad at all. It definitely makes me want to read the next book in the series and I recommend everyone to give this series a try.
