Kaylyn has been trained her whole life to defeat evil and at 17 years-old, she has her chance to do it.  Once Kaylyn has defeated the ultimate evil eliminating all evil in the world a new problem arises in another town and they desperately need her help.

But the cost of helping this town threats the existence that her people have been fighting for as well as her friendship and a love she didn’t know existed.

I can deal with love triangles as long as they make some kind of sense. The love triangle in this story didn’t make sense. But I do give the author credit for what she did with it at the end.

But I am getting ahead of myself. I didn’t like this book. Kaylyn does not have a single shred of personality. All she knows is the best friend she is in love with and her missions. She is plain jane and not in the sense of looks but personality and development.

What pissed me off was how she was only willing to move forward with the “love” she was feeling  for the sake of the mission. She wasn’t doing it because she felt it was right and that she deserved to be happy. Oh no she did it for the mission.

I also was pissed of at the best friend. You’re telling me that you’re in love with her as much but lead her friend on and then want to claim self-righteousness once you admit how you feel? Man, no.

I felt that there could have been a lot more passion, energy coming from all of these characters. I love the idea and the concept of this book; a necessary evil. But I felt it lacked the drive needed to prove this point.
