Blurb from Goodreads:Seventeen-year-old Abigail Johnson is Gifted.

Blessed—or cursed—with Sight and Healing, Abby lives an unsettled life, moving from place to place and staying one step ahead of the darkness that hunts her. When she arrives in Jackson, Wyoming, she is desperate to maintain the illusion of normalcy, but she is plagued with visions of past lives mixed with frightening glimpses of her future. Then she meets Kye, a mysterious boy who seems so achingly familiar that Abby is drawn to him like he’s a missing piece of her own soul.

Before Abby can discover the reason for her feelings toward Kye, the darkness catches up to her and she is forced to flee again. But this time she’s not just running. She is fighting back with Kye at her side, and it’s not just Abby’s life at stake.

Review: This book was a roller coaster of emotions. I was all over the place reading this and it started from chapter one. I'm talking like page 3 people and it didn't end until quite literally the last page.It's beautifully written and you could feel the emotions Abby was experiencing. Speaking of Abby I liked her as a character. Granted, she had her flaws and at times I really couldn't connect with her as a character but she was very wise for her age and I loved reading some of the things she thought to herself. 
      "Life's a journey that forces us all to move forward, whether we want to or not."
  That's pretty deep for a 17 year old guys.I loved her loyalty to her friends and those she loved and how she actually considered the situation and tried to think logically ( which unfortunately is becoming very rare in heroines.) Her relationship with Kye was sweet and I loved how it didn't take over the whole story. It was there and it was part of the plot line but it  wasn't the whole plot, it was there to back the plot which was the main focus. 
    Okay so some people will get annoyed with the while Insta- Love but honestly it's not your typical Insta-Love. It has the whole they knew each other before and loved each other before ,and even then there is development to their relationship. It's not that meet at 9 am and proclaim undying love by lunch kind of thing.    The plot was intense when it picked up. Somethings revealed I saw coming from a mile away, others hit me in the face like a freight train. The story line was original and I loved all the legends behind the story.
    People that enjoy an intense paranormal romance should definitely check out this novel
I give this story
