John Smith is not your average teenager. He regularly moves from small town to small town. He changes his name and identity. He does not put down roots. He cannot tell anyone who or what he really is. If he stops moving those who hunt him will find and kill him. But you can't run forever. So when he stops in Paradise, Ohio, John decides to try and settle down. To fit in. And for the first time he makes some real friends. People he cares about - and who care about him. Never in John's short life...

So I'm not huge on aliens and conspiracy theories and abductions, but I am a fan of Superman and Wonder Woman. The whole superhero thing is rather cool in my eyes. If I'd know how much alien there was, I might not have picked it up, but I'm glad I did.

It was a very fun, well-paced, action-packed novel. It was very similar to a lot of the Superman stuff, Lorien being destroyed is a lot like the destruction of Krypton and I kept drawing those parallels in my mind. But other than that, this is a very unique book (also I drew parallels to Four from Divergent because they literally have the same name). I love the whole concept of "they must be killed in order" and I'm wondering if the people had more time if they would have put the most capable Cepan with the first Garde so that the other eight would have been a whole lot safer. 'Cause if One never dies, Four would not be in any danger.

I'm digressing but a good book should make you think.

The romance was well done. I tend to hate romances, but this one was well paced and well executed.


My favorite book series of all time. Absolutely heart-breaking, breath-taking and life-changing.
