"The Earth was not ours to keep..."
Like the rest of the Gaian race, Alana’s life is ruled by the Avalon, the superior race who once created Earth and returned to reclaim it after we nearly destroyed it. Now that the Avalon move the Gaians from Region to Region, over and over, Alana has no place to call home.
Fearing that she may be resigned to this life of control forever, the opportunity to explore the world outside of her Region is literally dropped into Alana’s pocket in the form of a small silver device.
Taking a leap of faith and teleporting to the unknown, Alana must discover who is pulling the strings in her life and why. But in her quest for answers and freedom, she’s thrown headfirst into a hidden battle for humanity alongside a boy whose life was destined to be entwined with hers.
With the secrets of who she really is starting to unravel and abilities she didn’t know she had rising to the surface, she becomes a commodity to whatever faction can keep her in one place.
But others around her are carrying secrets, too, and Alana must decide who to trust before she can change the fate of all the races.
My Review: 5 stars
I picked this up because I loved the idea of the blurb. Faced with a life under the control of the Avalon and approaching Shift Day, Alana is hopeful that she'll stay in the place that has been her home for a little while. But then a bunch of stuff starts to happen, and suddenly she's thrown into a life she didn't expect. The story pulls you in from the first page, and keeps you reading throughout the whole book. I adored Alana and the way the characters were written. The intrigue of the plot kept me guessing and by the end of the book, I was desperate to know more. I can't wait for the sequel! Highly recommended!
