NO SECOND CHANCE.
Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.
There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.
In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…
Believe it or not this is my first Showater book and I could literally kick my own butt beccause of it. To say the very least, I fell in love with her imaginative world, her endearing but tough characters, and the whole world she created and it makes me wonder why I waited so very long to try her.
This book is a hard one to go into detail about without spoiling anything so I will keep this review short and sweet and stick to the basics.
This is a series you don't want to miss out on.
If you are tired of the same old same old and want something different, fun, and that will stand out while still being well written and completely entertaining, you need to pick up this series.
No love triangles, not daunting whoa is me mean girls, or Mary Sues, this series has a touch of romance, a whole lot of action, three highly kick butt characters, and a whole lot of imagination.
Set in a world like is both futuristic and sci fi, this book had me hooked from the very first chapter and it only got better as it went.
A stunning new series that will blow you away and leave you begging for more.
