Twins Sera and Luke Raine have a well-kept secret—she heals with a touch of her hand, he sees the future. All their lives they’ve helped those in need on the sly. They’ve always thought of their abilities as being a gift.
Then Luke has a vision that Sera is killed. That gift they’ve always cherished begins to feel an awful lot like a curse. Because the thing about Luke’s ability? He’s always right. And he can’t do anything about it.
“The children of the Prophecy must die”
Sera and Luke are teenaged twins, although they are very different from any other kids you know. They have abilities. Special abilities. Sera can heal and Luke has visions of the future. Very cool!
Sera often heals people without a second thought, which lately is beginning to lead them into some trouble. Especially since Luke is having visions that his sister is killed.
Right away you definitely get a sense of how close these two kids are. They aren’t two teenagers, its more like they are each a half of a whole. I really enjoyed getting to know them, and it was quick and easy to care about them. And then when you meet the other people in their lives, you love them even more.
But the thing about their lives is that there are so many secrets you don’t know what is real. They don’t even know, themselves, how many secrets there are. They’ve always known they were different, but they didn’t realize just how different they actually were. It seems that everyone in the supernatural world is on the hunt for the children of the prophecy. Some want to kill them, some are determined to save them. But it is very difficult to tell who is who at times, which in my opinion, really lent itself to the mystery and excitement of the story.
The first third or so of this story moved kind of slow for me. There was a lot of facts and learning about the different characters going on. And really, it worked because by the second half of the story when the action kicked into high gear I was invested in these people and their friends. But it was really interesting how the twins found allies in unlikely people,while those believed to be trustworthy proved themselves opposite. But such is the way it goes when you deal with so many secrets.
“Shall she be the first to die, Seer?”
The story focused a little bit more on Sera, but it was Luke who caught my eye. I felt he had a bit more of an emotional part in this story. I mean, afterall, he was seeing visions of his other half dying. There are times I just felt so sad for Luke, and his desperation was clear. But then Sera was like this naïve, yet not naïve girl who you just liked. She was friendly and caring, and you don’t want her to get killed.
So does she get killed? That’s a secret!!! Come on, read the story. Meet Luke and Sera, Fey, Marc, Jonas, and Lilith. Who is good and who is evil? Are the vampires or the fairies good or evil? And exactly who are behind the Shadows? It’s not always the answer you think it is.
