Overview

Some secrets change your life forever.

Have you ever felt invisible? I do. Everyday. I can't get close to anyone, and people can't get close to me. Everytime I feel a friendship beginning, something inevitably happens, and I become invisible again. Unseen. Ignored. It's been a part of me for so long that it's hard to imagine anything different.

Then the Saguinox arrive, and my life is forever altered. People are fascinated by these beautiful creatures who look and talk like us. They're alluring. Seductive. Intoxicating. And two of them are going to my school. Rhys is everything I shouldn't want, but his eyes are like something from a memory. I can't help but be intrigued. He's the only one who can really see me.

Some secrets you're better off not knowing.

I had been found on a cold winter night with nothing but a blanket, and ashes covering my skin. My mother saved me from death, and took me in with love. But she couldn't save herself. I didn't think heroes were real anymore until the day Kaiden saved me. I couldn't believe in miracles until the day he revealed I was the miracle they had all been hoping for. Deep inside I always knew my past mattered.

I just didn't know my life would depend on it.

Editorial Reviews

Words Escape Me - Kriston Johnson
"Mari Arden has a fresh voice and does a fantastic job brining this entertaining story to life. Her characters live in a world far from ordinary where an alien race has made themselves known to Earth and are generously welcomed into today’s society.Flame is an enjoyable read and moves along at a steady pace. Combined with a solid plot and well-developed characters I recommend the read."

    Aliens are real Earth has found out. They are sending some kids

    Aliens are real Earth has found out. They are sending some kids to start high school with the human kids. Everyone is excited for this. Kenna isn't as excited as everyone else. After all for the most part people don't see her and seem to forget her when they do meet her. She does notice how attractive Rhys is and is surprised when the cute alien does notice and remember her when they meet. She soon learns there is more to Rhys and the other aliens than anyone would guess. Kenna soon finds herself in danger and Rhys can't or won't help her. She must do it with help from a boy name Kaiden. He helps her do what she was marked to do.




    Kenna is a character you can relate to right away. She doesn't stand out and has a rough life. She blends in and in some ways likes being unnoticed. She really shows her back bone later on in this book and I can't wait to see how much more she grows. Rhys I have mixed feelings about. He is the cute alien that everyone wants but has many secrets. I still want to know what he is hiding. Kaiden is awesome. He is funny even when danger is all around.




    This book really surprised me in a good way. It was not what I was expecting at all. I fell in love with the world and the characters the author create. Imagine a world of aliens, humans and so much more. This book has a little bit of everything in it. It took turns I did not see coming and left me wanting so much more.There is plenty of action as Kenna fights for her freedom and her life and learns more about her past she didn't know about. This book lays down a great start to a story that I will be sure to look for more of. The only part of this book I did not like is because it ended I wanted this wonderous journey to continue on.

    Great storyline! Aliens have arrived on Earth; in particularly Rhys, our handsome hero--you'll fall for this guy! Our heroine is Kenna--we find out her secret--such a good one! I don't want to give anything away, but suffice to say, you will love this book! The characters in this book are very unique. I really got enjoyably lost in the world created by Mari Arden. I can't wait for the next book in this series!!!

    I really enjoyed this book! It's unlike any YA I've read. In this story aliens who they call the "Saguinox" have arrived on Earth, and people are scared an in awe at the same time. Kenna is the main character and she has a mysterious past that no one knows about. She meets alien hunk Rhys and her life turns upside down. She starts to figure out who she is and what she might mean to everyone. Fast paced read. Loved it!
