Publisher's Summary

Dying sucks, and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies.

Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things - including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming that Ember's curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities weird even her out.

When Ember learns that the accident that turned her into a freak may not have been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she gets to losing not only her heart but her life. For real this time.

What the Critics Say

"Armentrout puts a fresh twist on this occult tale, creating a paranormal setting that has the right mix of suspense, mystery, romance, and adventure. Gripping characters with an X-Men feel drive the plot, leaving readers wondering who is innocent and who is guilty."----School Library Journal

    "Awesome"

    Favorite author. Never disappoints. I hope this one gets a sequel but still great as a stand alone. Also it's not about what you expect.

    Avid reader who hates it when editors or writers butcher the English language. Honest reviewer.

    Story
    "Couldn't decide if the family was good or bad"

    Ember's gift was triggered by her death & resurrection. Her new life sucked but she did everything possible to care for her little sister. Not being able to simply touch her sister w/o gloves is heartbreaking. All that I could empathize with but being immediately attracted to a guy who is clearly dangerous, especially when all Olivia has is Ember to care for her. I don't understand but maybe that's just my wariness showing. Then the whole kidnap/adopt thing, again hard to believe & the family just seems off, morally ambiguous, broken, etc. The one redeeming thing about the Cromwell family is that they love each other. Hayden, is a stalker & totally messes with Ember's head. She is so vulnerable after being unable to touch or get close to anyone for two years. Add hormones to that & Ember was in trouble. Hayden didn't act like a gentleman. The story was interesting in a read once kind of way. The narrator was good but I prefer the males to sound more male. This definitely isn't one of my favorite books but I did like the book.

    Story
    "Yet another irritating female lead"

    I really wanted to like this story, but unfortunately that was made almost impossible by the female lead character. She's yet another whiny, infuriatingly weak-willed female character that just lays down and takes all the abuse and rubbish that is thrown at her, rather than stand up for herself. It's impossible to like her or feel and kind of sympathy for her. You just want to shake her and tell her to grow a pair.

    The narrator did a really good job, and I would be happy to listen to another title narrator by her.
