Christina Vaughn has a pretty normal -- albeit lonely -- life in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Until one day she's transported to the fantastical land of Meric. Within her first tweny minutes in this crazy place she's been attacked by man-eating Vaipes, learned her father was a power wielding Guardian, and discovered that the silvery-blue eyes intriguing her for her whole life belong to her Watcher, Shaw.
Oh yeah… and she's the prophesied Savior who's supposed to save Meric from a war-mongering tyrant who can manipulate people's thoughts and control their minds.
Christina's question isn't where or when… it's how. How can she save the people of Meric when she can't even keep herself from falling in love?
My Thoughts/ReviewThis was an interesting story to say the least! It definitely contained many different elements invoking romance, action, humor, surprise, and imagination by far.
When beginning to read I was super surprised to find that Christina was a 30 year old woman rather than a 17 year old teenager. For whatever reason I had gotten it in my mind that this was a YA novel with a younger heroine (not sure where I got this idea from). Since I had this expectation previously, it did take some time for me to actually really bond with Christina as it was hard for me to relate to her.
However, I really loved the world-building that Jennifer creates, especially the many different races. I think that was my favorite part of the entire novel was the different people Christina met as well as seeing the unique animals!
Overall, this was a good story that had fun characters with some romance and a huge amount of action. I am curious as to what is going to happen next since the ending was a huge cliff hanger!
