Thanks to the Authors and Naj, from Unputdownable Books. For letting me enter the Blog Tour and giving me a copy of this book for review :)

Read: September 2011
Language: English

Summary: (From Goodreads)
With Pandemic ravaging the globe, Olivya's psychic Sight compels her to see auras riddled with the colors of despair, and now her mother is infected.

Olivya’s only hope is the mysterious Mikah, a powerful Empath who claims the Pandemic is linked to his clan, the Kindred, and their brooding, monstrous, Immortal Lord. But can she trust this boy who can manipulate her very emotions?

With Mikah's aid, Olivya races to unearth Kindred secrets, desperate to find a cure, only to discover the Pandemic is far, far more than a mere disease . . .

The Story:
The Story follows two different, but still two very a like young characters. Mikah and Olyvia.
They live in a world so different from our own, in the year of 2032.
Technology is everything and one day, it all breaks down.
At the same time an epidemic is ruining the world, a sickness with the name cancer. But what if it´s not a sickness, but something else? But what?? How can they survive and what will happen with the world.

My Opinion:
All in all I really liked the book.
It was full of action and mystery. You had to keep on reading to find out what was really going on.
Which can both be positive and negative. Good that you have to find out all these new things during the story. But bad when you get a bit lost because there are somethings you can´t really figure out.
I really liked the book because it had an really amazing world, which must come from some amazing brains. Everything is different, from our own world. But you can still imagine, what our world could become. And that´s what is fascinated. And the twist with the cancer made me keeping on reading. The characters grow a lot in the book, and you want to keep on reading to find out what will happen to them, how they will survive. And not to forget the romance. Will they get together :)
But unfortunately I got a little lost in the middle of the book. Because there where just to many new detailes and names. But probably a bit my own fault. Since I was a bit sleepy while reading :(
But I chose giving the book 4,5-5 out of 6 stars

Since the story captured me. And the action and characters captivated me :) Though the language was a bit difficult some times. I recommend this book. Though it probably wont fit a person who is new to English. Since the language is a bit advanced :)
