When I first found this book on Goodreads I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy. It sounded so exciting and had such a beautiful cover, so when the opportunity came to be a part of a blog tour for this debut novel, I jumped at the chance. And I'm so glad I did.
Dealing with the loss of her father, Lenzi discovers that she can hear voices. To make things worse she's also starting to have dreams and visions. Her boyfriend Zak wants to help, but he can barely help himself.
That's when Alden steps into the picture. He's the boy she's seen in her visions, but she's not sure if she can trust him either. Stories of her being a Speaker and Alden her Protector have to be ridiculous. Right? But Lenzi has to figure it out soon, but time runs out.
I absolutely love the cover of this book. Most of the ones I talk about are beautiful, which this one is, but it also has a great significance to the story that I really like. It is just spot on.
The relationship between Lenzi and Alden was so sweet and I loved watching how natural it was. In spite of the fact that Lenzi didn't understand what was happening around her, there was a connection between she and Alden that couldn't be denied. They were adorable.
Mary created a world that was so interesting and exciting for readers to watch unfold. Especially with Lenzi not remembering her past as a Speaker, or Alden. But, yet, everything came back so naturally to her. No one, not even knows why she doesn't remember and they don't know what it means. This little mystery made uncovering what was going on even more exciting.
I really did enjoy this book and hope that there will be more for this characters someday *crosses fingers*. And I definitely can't wait to read more from Mary as well, including her next novel, Annabel.
