Official Summary: “Recurring nightmares haunted D’laine Jackson when she woke from an eight-month coma following a tragic accident. Four images were branded in her head: a dark-haired, handsome princely young man, a fierce reptilian monster, a white furry creature whose red eyes implored her with some unspoken message, and an ominous black robot.
Now, five years later, D’laine was getting ready to go off to college. During one last shopping trip with her father and brothers for dorm supplies, a blanket of fog rolled out of the sky at the mall, in broad daylight in plain sight of dozens of witnesses. When the fog pulled back D’laine was gone.
When she woke, her nightmare turned into reality.” – Goodreads

Review: You know books where you take your time and just read, purely out of enjoyment? This one of them books. The world that is made is so beautiful done and layered. Most things are explained but not to the point where your getting annoyed with them telling you the story. It helps add to the story, knowing the details about all the different species, animals and plant life on the planet? Or is it called plane/place. Still little confused on that one.
The science is used very well, and very detailed. It not over used, or here let’s just slap a really big long word and confuse people. It all had it purpose and context. Again it added to the layers in the story. It felt like the author knew what she was talking about when using scientific terminology, which is always a plus.
There was a lot that happened in the book, but at the same time not really. It was just the right amount, it didn’t feel rushed. Maybe the end a little, but then again it was part of how the story played out. I like how the main character had to work at getting good, work at using her gifts. Nothing worse than a character having abilities, and just being amazing straight away. It not realistic.
I like how it shifted view points. You got to see more of the story from a range of different sides. There were some errors; 4 total. Just basic basic errors, nothing major. I sent them off to the author, should be fixed straight away.
(Jamie stared up at Ghury. “Wow, a Wookie!” Ghury grumbled.) – Had me in stitches.
Would I recommend it? Yes. Best book I have read this month.
