Lyra's story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that from a distance looks serene and even beautiful. But up close, the locked doors, military guards, and biohazard suits tell a different story. In truth Haven is a clandestine research facility where thousands of replicas, or human models, are born, raised, and observed. When a surprise attack is launched on Haven, two of its young experimental subjects - Lyra, or 24, and the boy known only as 72 - manage to escape.

I enjoyed the story but I wish I had the version where the stories were intertwined instead of one after the other.

I've quickly learned that being the White Raven isn't easy. The dead are restless and angry, and I don't know the first thing about being a banshee. Those around me will get hurt. To keep them safe, I must endure painful decisions. Zane Hunter, the ultra-bad boy who stole my heart, is one of those difficult decisions. Our souls are synchronized, making us a compatible duo. Too bad I'm engaged to his brother.

I will admit the book is a little slow to start off but it gets much better. I love Pipers attitude and find myself laughing and shaking my head to myself at the things she says. I wish she was more of a fighter though.... She talks a big game with her smartass-ness but I'm ready for her to stop needing to be rescued. Can't wait for the next one.

It was very difficult getting use to the new voice, I honestly liked the other one better. The story was good though. I did predict some of what was going to happen but I was not expecting the ending. Very excited about the last one.
