Goodreads Rating: 3/5 stars
Every night after Ember Pierce falls asleep, she disappears. She can teleport anywhere in the world—London, Paris, her crush’s bedroom—wherever her dreams lead her. Ten minutes is all she gets, and once time’s up, she returns to her bed. It’s a secret she’s successfully kept for the last five years. But now someone knows.
A week after her eighteenth birthday, when frustratingly handsome Caden Hawthorne captures her, delivers her to the government, and then disappears before her eyes, Ember realizes two things: One, she is not alone. And two, people like her—teleporters—are being used as weapons.
Dragged off to a remote facility where others like her live, Ember’s forced to pair up with her former captor, Caden, to learn how to survive inside until she can escape. Only Caden’s making escape seem less and less appealing.
But even as Ember falls for the boy who got her into this mess, she knows that she is running out of time. Because the government has plans for those like her, and those plans might just cost Ember her life.
I decided to pick this book up because it was recommended to me by Goodreads. I’m always interested to see what is recommended to me because I like to read things that aren’t well know and find hidden treasures, sometimes I find treasures, sometimes I do not… it happens. In this case however, it was a fun read but nothing completely new and the romance disappointing.
Sorry to just start right off the bat with the bad news but seriously that is all I can think about. I think this book would be AMAZING if the romance wasn’t so…blah!
Moving on… This was a YA or NA (couldn’t decide)/sci-fi story about a girl who teleported somewhere else for 10 minutes every night when she went to sleep. okay, cool! that is something new and I really enjoyed this aspect. Then on her 18th birthday the government swoops in and tells her that they own her. That she is a product of an experiment and she needs to now come live, train and work for the government. Okay, still cool. I enjoy stuff like this. This book had a Nikita feel to it, if you like that show (I’ve watched a few episodes).
Moving on… at the facility you meet Cadon and she is paired up with him. they train and he seems mysterious and they fall in love way too fast and have sex and it’s annoying. I just felt like there was no real waiting for anything! Ember doesn’t like him at first and while she does all she can to plan an escape Cadon seems to hold all the keys and answers. SO he was intriguing and the way he was constantly after Ember and wanted her to fall in love with him it was just great….then it happened like way too fast! And the only think that kept me interested was the rest of the government conspiracy plus the other guy involved and I wonder if this is going to be a love triangle.
So overall I ended up liking it, I didn’t love it, however it did make me want to read the next book to see what happens!
