Remy O’Malley’s life isn’t easy. Her mother is married to an abusive man who only wants the child support check that her father sends every month. On top of that she has a mysterious power to heal people with touch. The side-effect to that is for every injury she cures it becomes hers. She has healed her mother over and over again and has even had to endure pain without healing to hide her abilities. After the worst beating of her life, Remy is sent to live with her estranged father and meets a boy just as strange as her, Asher Blackwell, only to find out that they are enemies. Asher is a Protector and immortal and his kind hunt down her kind.

I was instantly grabbed from page one. Right away I felt for Remy and knew that her journey was going to be tough. Being abused and being different without knowing why leads to some very deep scarring. This was about Remy’s turn to be healed. Even though I felt that Asher was not an original described character, I still enjoyed his story as well. He compliments Remy well and their growing attraction leads to some tense moments.

The intertwining of fantasy and reality was effortlessly done. The story managed to deal with real issues but adds the fantasy element that makes for an intriguing read. All the characters interact well together and support the main characters. Perfect read for the lovers of YA paranormal.

The best way to describe this book would be torture. I hated but loved it. It was a great idea and had great characters, but it was sooooo slow. I wanted tto stop reading because it was not going anywhere. However, i needed to know what would happen, because the characters and idea was good. It was torture; i felt like i had to keep reading the book because at som point it had to get better. It did get better, but only at the very end. The end was amazing, crazy good. I just wish the author put more action in the middle of the book. So i liked this book, but it does not deserve more than three stars for being boring. Its confusing; good but boring.
