Summary: (from Goodreads)
Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift.
Willow is a special girl. She got special powers. But why? She can see ghosts and feel emotions.
Everything is normal, untill her family tell her the real secret. The are not from this world. And there are more out there, then she know about. Suddenly is everything changing when they gotta move back.
Not just does she have to get comfort with her powers and all the new stuff. But there are also "dark powers" roaming around, she have to be careful with.
And then not to forget about her soulmate, who is searcing to find her :)
I enjoyed this book. It was diffrent and a new modern fairytale :)
The love story in this book is so fairytale like, your just thinking Awww... how cute. That would be so awesome. :) They are so in love and next to that they have special powers. So they stay together when they are awake and asleep :) And they can talk to eachother in their head. Landen and Willows are in all forms fairytale perfect, normally I would feel it was unrealistic and enoying. But in this book it was really well written and cute instead :) And I liked it :)
Though I felt like I was missing some Drake, and wanted more of him. But there are still two books to go, so much can happen.
Anyway, I gave this book 5 out of 6 stars.
I can´t put my finger of what it was missing. But something made me choose 5.
This book is full of loads of romance and then well put together with some action. And a lot of new teories of the way of living, superpowers etc. :)
