Seventeen is a life changing age for Emma Wise.
As her family's sole survivor in a car crash, she is left with a broken arm and a few scrapes and bruises. But these are only outward marks; inside, her heart is broken and the pieces scattered.
Whisked away to Alaska, to an aunt she’s never met, Emma starts over. Secrets unveil themselves and now…she doesn't even know who or what she is.
A centuries old prophecy places Emma in the heart of danger. Creatures of horrifying and evil proportions are after her, and it will take Emma, her aunt, and six, gorgeously captivating Guardians to keep her safe. But, if she can survive until her eighteenth birthday... things will change.
My family is what keeps my heart beating, and my world a happy place to be.
I was born in San Francisco, raised in Maui, Hawaii, and recently moved with my husband and children to Alaska.
I'm a daydreamer, a caffeine and peppermint addict. I love to laugh, love to read, and love to escape reality. One of my greatest joys is creating fantasy worlds filled with adventure and romance, and sharing it with others.
One day I hope to find my own magic wardrobe, and ride away on a magical unicorn. Until then...I'll keep writing!

From page one, I was able to delve right into the story... Emma is a seventeen-year-old girl who very recently lost her parents and is now being sent to Alaska to live with an aunt that she's never met. We meet Emma along with her two best friends Lia and Jeremy.
It's obvious from the start that these three are excellent friends who have a pretty great bond. I love romance in my stories, but second to that, I love friendships that make you feel like they're as close as family.
Once Emma's new life in Alaska begins we're introduced to a whole new slew of characters. But we don't get a chance to really know them before Emma is thrown into some crazy situations. Bit by bit, we learn more about Emma and her new "family".
All in all the writing was intriguing and captivating. I wasn't bored at any point in the story.
The only thing I'm disappointed in is that I don't feel like I got to know some of the characters as well as I would have liked, but I think that's because this is a series and with each book more will be revealed.
Renae weaves a romantic tale of supernatural beings and a girl's purpose in a world she's just learning exists.
I will be reading the next installment.
