Summary: (from goodreads) Kira and Sophia have been best friends since they were five years old. They share an apartment together, and tell each other everything.
Everyone loves Sophia, and she is often called the advice girl by people who know her. Kira believes she knows her friend better than anyone. But in a mysterious accident, Sophia loses her life.

Kira is mourning the devastating loss when she finds a note addressed to her from beyond the grave. Kira realizes she doesn't know her friend as well as she thought, as she starts to uncover the truth. She falls into a deep depression, confused and lost, until a visit from a strange man puts her in the middle of a war between two secret societies.

Kira soon understands that she is in danger, and doesn't know who to trust. She has to fight for her own life now.

I am extremely confused as to the purpose behind this book. It did not make sense at all, I felt it was rushed and all over the place. One paragraph would be one character, and then the next would be another character. I would have to read the first sentence twice to realize who is the character that i was reading on now. However, I did like where the author was going with the story. I like the suspense and the romance but i there was no description of any kind about anyone. Who are "The Guild" "The VS" the little description that was provided would not suffice. As well as the characters? Also, its stated that the main character Sophia contained some special powers??? All i got from the book was that she can pull the "White" light and that she comes from a weird family? I would have liked to learn about her gift, her family as well as Kira's background since she's sort of a main character as well. I believe this story has A LOT of potential but like I said, It felt rushed. Overall, I liked the plot/story line but would have liked more descriptions and background information.


  1. I totally agree about the alternating POV! I had to re read things several times in order to figure out who it was. Overall I liked the book, but that and the insta love was my only complaint!

  2. I haven't heard very good things about this book, I think I'll probably pass on it. Thanks for the heads up.
