"Excellent! Five stars! A fun, action-packed book with depth!" - Great Summer Reads for Teens
"The writing quality is excellent. The teen characters are realistic and would be easy for teens to relate with when they read this book. The suspense is fun, keeps you on edge and satisfied with the twist of the story." -Jane Jones
"Excellent for tweens, teens and adults (not girly) with a bit of history, friendship struggles and a mystic quality that keeps you guessing. I recommend purchasing Book 2 at the same time as you will want to read it as soon as you finish this one." -Kathryn Figaro-Reifsteck
"All in all, this is a wonderful story of a young girl coming to know herself through facing her own fears and doubts, while recognizing and accelerating her new-found strengths. A great YA novel." -Dianne Greenlay
"A well-written and captivating story. Highly recommended." - RJ Parker
Seventeen-year-old Emily Adams unintentionally unleashed a shadow god's dark energy power into the world and started an Apocalypse. But Emily is also the only one that can end the dark god's reign. Though the powerful faerie magic of the golden torc is still coiled around her arm, self-doubt threatens to undo her. Emily wants nothing more than to feel the soft kiss of her one true love, but he won't even speak to her. Her first crush is still quite dead and her best friend remains a prisoner in the dark god's house of nightmares. A growing legion of black-eyed shadow people, devoid of conscience, roam the streets. Emily needs help now more than ever, but redemption seems far off indeed as she faces the expanding darkness alone.
Emily will need an army of her own if she is to save the world from being taken over by pure evil. But will a small band of Lucent geeks and freaks be enough to send the dark god packing?
Amidst chaos and ruin, will love blossom in Emily's Heart?
