I wish I had known about this series long before. I love the world of the Outsiders series so much.
Every outsider has a unique power to save the human race from demons. Eden Roan is a outsider, with a gift of prophecy. But, Eden cannot control her gift and passes out every time she gets a vision. Eden was treated as a child or an imbecile by other outsiders. In addition to this, Eden's soul mate do not wish to meet her, but he speaks to her in her head. The demon, who is chasing them, is also in her head to make her insane, and he tells her that he has killed her soul mate, when he was 12 years old. Eden is not so sure about anything anymore, even with the gift of prophecy.
Samuel Quinn was almost killed, when he was 12. He was burnt inside a locked closet by a demon, but by some miracle he escaped. But, he lost his normal face and even his parents cannot see his scarred features. But, being an outsider, Samuel have the power of changing his features to someone else, with a just touch of that person. So, he hides his scarred face behind the new faces and he is afraid to go near Eden, his soul mate, because of this.
The main plot was amazing. I didn't read the others in the series, so I took some time to really understand the world for some time. The story is like to old grandmothers - start with a simple plot and improvise it as you go. And the author has done just that, improvised a simple plot and she had done that great. The story of Eden and Samuel is like seeing a dream - their love towards one another is breath-taking.
There are many sub-plots and the older stories re-touched. Some new ones are quite confusing - like that guy who can see ghosts and in the middle of nowhere, someone appears and says that he is his twin. But, to say the truth, I clearly enjoyed the whole novel, once I got the hang of what's going on.
An amazing romance and fantasy novel!
