It starts with… well, dears, Caleb did saved Maggie from the WATSON’S from the previous book and they had only one alternative to ‘survive’: run away. Lucky thing, some uncle owned a beach house up in California.

“I want him more than I need him.”

So, Maggie and Caleb leave flying for California at first class and dreaming with their eyes open. And if being alone and a teenager, above everything else, doesn’t ring any bells then you should, really, feel all that tension, all that wanting and aching for more. Yet, they don’t get the chance to Mutualise, which means not having sex with your body, but somehow with your mind.

“You know any single girls in their twenties that would go for Bish?” I asked Caleb.

 

“Sure, I know plenty. But would Bish go for it? He doesn’t seem to

 

be attracted to anything that walks, talks, eats or breathes except my sister.” ―

 

Just when they were about to… ahem… mutualise, Kyle – Caleb’s cousin and Bish – Maggie’s brother make an entrance! Everything changes so much! They’ve just started to live in a big house, with Bish sniffing around everything bizarre and everything that doesn’t seem right.

The book evolves on the fact that they need to be together, so much, yet they cannot until everything is settled between everyone. Nothing good comes out when they keep Bish an outsider and nothing comes out when Maggie discovers that she is more than she expected!

I was wondering, right when she found out what she was, about how Caleb would manage to understand everything and so on. But after a while I understood. Maggie isn’t just Maggie, ascended and all; she is also no longer looking like a normal seventeen year old girl, but more likely a twenty or something year old WOMAN! She is different inside-out and that makes him even crazier over her, as if that can even be possible.

“He pulled my face up with his hand cupping my cheek and kissed me on my trembling mouth. He smoothed his hands down my arms, my back, my hair, my cheek, soothing me. “There’s a picture of you two in the dictionary under ‘get a room’,” Kyle said from behind me.”

Even though she is not conscious about her looks, she manages to make everyone double-check her every single time. She’s not ‘proud’ of that, nor interested, but where do you add that she is now a Visionary? A Goddess among Aces, someone they have to incline their heads on, kiss her hand fingers and then press them on their forehead!

How can she stand that? Well, she cannot, so she makes a run for herself. She gets mad at the look in Caleb’s eyes and runs away. Getting herself into the car she starts it without even using the keys, but right now she doesn’t care! All she cares about is to get away from there as soon as possible and get to be MIA (Missing in Action).

She succeeds in getting away, only to discover that now she can also see the past or the future for someone. She starts with a young boy that asks if she wants a place to stay, trying to make her not to wander on the streets alone. She refuses him, but when she touches him, by mistake, she can also see his future. She is now thrilled and needs Caleb touch to make her feel comfortable again, otherwise she feels so wounded up, like she cannot fit anywhere without him.

“Caleb,” I called and looked at him. “I need you.” He looked surprised as he came forward.

“What do you need?”

“You.”

“Does this require a human sacrifice?” he said joking.

“No,” I laughed and heard Jen laugh too. “You remember I told you how I needed you at my side? I do, always. I can’t do any of this without you. Your touch is the trigger.” “It is?” he said in surprise. “You are just as important as I am. In the vision, I saw that you and I will be the key, not just me. Everything we’ll accomplish, we’ll do it together or not at all.”

She gets back home and makes everything right by getting back to Caleb, confessing everything to him. Everything is so fuzzy and beautiful and awesome.

I couldn’t take my eyes out of this book as I was so entangled in it. Maggie finally gets clean in front of Bish and then unravels the most excruciating thing that could happen: Bish was the soul-mate of Jen’s – Caleb’s sister, but they cannot imprint because if they do, they are both going to die. Jen’s also a mother to a young, beautiful and intelligent Maria, so she cannot leave motherless Maria and tries her best not to imprint on Bish. Rule number one: no touching!

They succeed, but it all makes Maggie uneasy, thinking that she cannot do anything even though she is a Goddess.

“Beck, we gotta go.”

 

“Ok.” She made smooch lips to the mirror and then smiled at me. “It’s shameful to look this fabulous isn’t it?” she said, making me laugh.

 

“Absolutely, just shameful.”

 

When the Watson’s come back, they end up almost dead. Death paying a visit to their headmaster, now they are being ran by Marla – headmaster’s daughter – a bad and evil woman, as it appears, who wants nothing but destroy Maggie!

Will Marla succeed? Will everything go right at the Reunification? How will everyone say their pleasantries to Maggie without getting her too embarrassed?

Will Caleb and Maggie finally mutualise?

Well, I just ‘suggest’ you to put a hold on everything else and start reading! Your heart will escape your own chest a few times and your brain will be tormented a few times! Want to risk it all? Just bring it in!

“The day Caleb touched my hand and I saw all those things, I was excited. Yes, a little freaked but excited more. I felt like…everything I ever needed was right there. I still feel like that. It’s not something you can just turn off and I wouldn’t want to.”

Happy Reading!

Recenzie

Începe cu…ei bine, dragilor, Caleb a reuşit să o salveze pe Maggie de WATSON în cartea precedentă şi nu aveau decât o singură alternativă pentru a „ supravieţui “ : să fugă. Un lucru foarte norocos, un fel de unchi deţinea o casă în California.

“I want him more than I need him.”

 

Deci, Maggie şi Caleb au plecat, zburând spre California la clasa întâi şi visând cu ochii deschişi. Şi dacă a fi singur şi adolescent, mai presus de toate, nu-ţi ridică semne de întrebare, atunci ar trebui să simţi tensiunea, toată acea dorinţă şi durerea pentru mai mult. Da ei nu au şansa la Mutualise, ceea ce înseamnă a nu face sex cu corpul, dar cumva cu mintea.

 

“You know any single girls in their twenties that would go for Bish?” I asked Caleb.

“Sure, I know plenty. But would Bish go for it? He doesn’t seem to

be attracted to anything that walks, talks, eats or breathes except my sister.”

 

Chiar când erau pe punctul de a…ahem…mutualise, Kyle -Vărul lui Caleb şi Bish- fratele lui Maggie îşi face apariţia! Totul se schimbă atât de mult! De abea ce au început să locuiască într-o casă mare, cu Bish adulmecând prin jur, tot ceea ce i-se părea bizar, sau nelalocul lui.

Cartea aduce în prim plan faptul că ei au nevoie să fie împreună, atât de mult, dar încă nu pot până ce totul nu este stabilit între toată lumea. Nimic bun nu aduce faptul că ei îl găzduiesc pe Bish, nepoftit, iar Maggie descoperă că este mult mai mult decât se aşteaptă!

Mă întrebam, chiar când am aflat ce este aceasta, cum o va înţelege Caleb şi aşa mai departe. Dar după o vreme, am înţeles. Maggie nu este doar Maggie, descendentă şi tot; ea aproape că nu mai arată ca o fată de 17 ani, ci mai mult ca o femeie de 20 de ani, sau ceva în genul o femeie BĂTRÂNĂ! Ea este diferită atât la interiro, cât şi la exterior şi asta îl face pe el chiar şi mai nebun după ea, dacă aşa ceva este posibil.

 

“He pulled my face up with his hand cupping my cheek and kissed me on my trembling mouth. He smoothed his hands down my arms, my back, my hair, my cheek, soothing me. “There’s a picture of you two in the dictionary under ‘get a room’,” Kyle said from behind me.”

 

Chiar şi aşa, ea nu este conştientă de înfăţişarea ei, ea reuşeşte să-i facă pe toţi să o scaneze de două ori de fiecare dată. Ea nu este „ mândră” de asta, nici interesată, dar unde mai adaugi că ea este acum o Vizionară? O zeiţă între Ace, cineva faţă de care ei trebuie să se încline, să-i sărute mâna şi apoi să le preseze de fruntea lor! Cum putea suporta asta? Ei bine, nu putea, aşa că a fugit. Ea se supără când vede privirea din ochii lui Caleb şi fuge. Urcându-se în maşina, pe care o porneşte fără a folosi cheile, dar în acel moment ei chiar nu îi păsa! Tot ceea ce conta era să plece de acolo cât mai curând cu putinţă şi să devină MIA ( Missing in Action ). Ea a reuşit să plece, doar ca să descopere că putea vedea trecutul sau viitorul pentru cineva. Ea începe cu un tânăr băiat, pe care o întreabă dacă are un loc unde să stea, încercând să o facă să nu bântuie singură pe străzi. Ea la refuzat, dar când îl atinge, din greşeală, ea poate să vadă viitorul lui. Ea este confuză şi are nevoie de atingerea lui Caleb, pentru a se simţi confortabil, din nou. Altminteri ea se simte rănită, ca şi când nu s-ar potrivi în această lume fără el.

 

“Caleb,” I called and looked at him. “I need you.” He looked surprised as he came forward.

“What do you need?”

“You.”

“Does this require a human sacrifice?” he said joking.

“No,” I laughed and heard Jen laugh too. “You remember I told you how I needed you at my side? I do, always. I can’t do any of this without you. Your touch is the trigger.” “It is?” he said in surprise. “You are just as important as I am. In the vision, I saw that you and I will be the key, not just me. Everything we’ll accomplish, we’ll do it together or not at all.”

 

Ea se întoarce acasă şi se întoarce înapoi la Caleb, confesându-i totul. Totul este atât de drăguţ, frumos şi minunat.

Nu puteam să-mi i-au ochii din această carte, atât am fost de conectată la ea. Maggie în sfârşit devine curată în faţa lui Bish, iar apoi un lucru care nu a fost dezvăluit şi sfăşietor de neaşteptat se întâmplă: Bish este sufletul pereche al lui Jen, sora lui Caleb, dar aceştia nu se pot imprima, pentru că, dacă o fac, amândoi mor. Jen este deasemenea mama tinerei, frumoasei şi inteligentei Marina, aşa că nu îşi poate părăsi datoria de mamă şi să-şi încere norocul de a se imprima pe Bish.

Regula numărul unu: Fără atingeri!

Ei reuşesc, dar toată această situaţie o fac pe Maggie nesigură, gândindu-se că nu poate face nimic, chiar dacă este o Zeiţă.

 

“Beck, we gotta go.”

 

“Ok.” She made smooch lips to the mirror and then smiled at me. “It’s shameful to look this fabulous isn’t it?” she said, making me laugh.

“Absolutely, just shameful.”

 

Când Watson se întoarce, ei ajung aproape morţi. Moartea a făcut o viăită stăpânului, iar acum ei sunt nevoiţi să fugă de Marla – fata stăpânului – o femeie rea şi malefică, cum este descrisă, care nu vrea altceva decât să o distrugă pe Maggie!

Va reuşi Marla? Va merge totul bine la Reunificare? Cum îşi va arăta toată luma aprecierea faţă de Maggie fără să fie prea stânjenitor pentru ea?

Caleb şi Maggie vor mutualiza într-un final?

Wi bine, eu doar „ îţi sugerez “ să pui pauză la ceea ce faci şi să începi să citeşti! Inima ta va scăpa din piept de câteva ori, iar creierul va fi confuz pentru perioade scurte de timp!

Vrei să rişti totul? Atunci să începem!

 

“The day Caleb touched my hand and I saw all those things, I was excited. Yes, a little freaked but excited more. I felt like…everything I ever needed was right there. I still feel like that. It’s not something you can just turn off and I wouldn’t want to.”

 

 

Lectură plăcută!
