Kayn Brighton seems to be living the perfect life. She has loving parents, a best friend-Kevin and her identical twin, Chloe. The Brighton twins love each other but their personalities are more different. Chloe is more of the 'popular' type. When i read the synopsis i wasn't to sure what this book was about but the first chapters were so gripping!
The first chapters were horrifying and gut wrenching when a huge tragedy befalls their family. Kayn is left alone but suddenly Kevin seems to have grown much more attractive. He's with her all the time and helps her overcome all the hardships that were coming to her like a huge tidal wave. Their goofy friendship soon turns into something more. I was so emotionally shell shocked when i read the first half of this book! It was simply gut-wrenching but beautiful at the same time. This author wrote so beautifully that i felt so bad when i read it! Their was so much love and caring in that family that it really touched my heart.
Thing is, The twins weren't supposed to exist. They were supposed to be one soul that had split into two. Until they reach the age of eighteen, their souls are free for the taking and three clans are like in a race to get to them. The Triad, Ankh and Trinity clan. They were so many attempts on their lives that it doesn't take long for Kayn to realize that she and her sister were not normal. The correction means they have to be corrected. Since they were never meant to exist as two, they have to be corrected and hence become one by merging. But who will take control of the body?
The second part of the book is mostly about her adjusting to her new clan , her growing relationship with Kevin and learning to defend herself. Because even though she is under the protection of a clan, until she's eighteen her soul is still free for the taking! I love her clan, especially Frost! I think we'll be seeing much more of him in the second book! The ending was so bittersweet and i so wonder what the hell is going to happen next??
Great writing and AMAZING emotion in this book! Can't wait to find out what happens next!
