Clea Raymond is a talented photojournalist and the daughter of high-profile parents. Usually she's in total control of her camera, but after Clea's father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, eerie, shadowy images of a strange and handsome young man begin to appear in Clea's photos--a man she has never seen in her life. When Clea suddenly encounters this man in person she is stunned--and feels an immediate and powerful connection. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father's disappearance and discover the centuries-old truth behind their intense bond. Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fate, together they race against time to unravel their past in order to save their future--and their lives.


I didn't have very high expectations when I went into reading this book just because I know that more times than not when celebrities try to go into other relms then what they are orginally known for it doesn't normally go well and for me this book fell flat.

The plot. For me I found that the plot didn't really hold my interest because it was so far fetched. Yes, I know this is meant to be a paranormal book but I think that this is probably the most far-fetched of any paranormal book that I have read and I also found the plot quite hard to follow as new characters were being introduced from the past and for me it just all seemed to get a bit confusing so I lost interest towards the end of the book.

The characters. For me the characters weren't very relateable, there was just something about them that made it so I couldn't really feel for their characters as much as I have in many most other books that I read.

Overall, This book just wasn't for me, the idea of the book had a lot of promise and that's what got me interested in reading the book in the first place but I just don't think that it was executed in the right way.
