Overview

Following the death of her parents, Eren Donovan moves to Spruce Knoll to live with an aunt she’s never met. Little does Eren know, the entire population are channelers—magical people who immigrated there when they were driven out of their homelands. Channelers are tied to the fate of the world, and as it slowly dies, they are going extinct—and they alone have the power to save the earth. Soon, Eren learns she not only lives among them, but she is one. When she meets local boy Aiden, his charm convinces her that being a channeler may not be all bad though.

As Eren and Aiden’s relationship develops, so too does a mystery in Spruce Knoll. The town holds many secrets—and many dangers. It soon becomes apparent that the untimely death of Eren’s parents was no accident and that her life might be in danger too. Only time will tell if Eren can embrace her unwanted power and protect the only family she has left.

McCorkle has penned an incredibly awesome story with amazing characters. McCorkle is a beautiful writer, by that I mean her writing flows with depth and strength and clarity. From the first page, I knew I was in for an intriguing fantasy with Eren and Aiden's story within the world of the Channelers. I also must salute McCorkle for her bravery--showing the reality of what teens face today, and then giving a positive way of dealing with it.
