Eve has a new home, a new face, and a new name—but no memories of her past. She’s been told that she's in a witness protection program. That she escaped a dangerous magic-wielding serial killer who still hunts her. The only thing she knows for sure is that there is something horrifying in her memories the people hiding her want to access—and there is nothing they won’t say—or do—to her to get her to remember.

At night she dreams of a tattered carnival tent and buttons being sewn into her skin. But during the day, she shelves books at the local library, trying to not let anyone know that she can do things—things like change the color of her eyes or walk through walls. When she does use her strange powers, she blacks out and is drawn into terrifying visions, returning to find that days or weeks have passed—and she’s lost all short-term memories. Eve must find out who and what she really is before the killer finds her—but the truth may be more dangerous than anyone could have ever imagined.

I tried my best to finish this book but hardly made it through. In my opinion this is a very slow read, not my cup of tea. The book is well written and very descriptive, yet leaves you with many unanswered questions.

The story is about a girl named Eve who doesn’t remember anything of her old life. Eve is in danger and in a witness protection program. The only way to remember is through dreams but getting her memory back may cause her life. Her dreams are very descriptive, she dreams of a circus, a very creepy circus that is.

The main character, Eve, is a bit confusing. I couldn’t connect with her, at all. I really never got the answer I needed to know in order to understand her. Most of the book she is just a lost as I was. This book should be about magic; however, I never received the magic! Every time she would perform anything extraordinary (which really wasn’t), she would faint and lose track of time. The only character I enjoyed was Zach. He was really cute and very lovable. He was sincere and just nerdy.

This book did not meet my expectation. There is no magic, the pace is off and I am still confuse about the main character.
