I forget why I picked up this book.

The whole time I was reading it, I still don't remember.

The book is about Tasmin. Her whole life she was told that she had no Talents, and she thought she was an outkast from her family. She tried her best to blend in with humans (Talentless people) to make up for what she lacked at home. One day a mysterious man came by and asked her for her help, he thought she was his sister and conflicted and wanting to prove something she told him she was.

Tasmin searches for the mans missing object with her love interest Gabriel to find that the object the man is missing is an object that should have stayed just that. They travel in time, release it's power only to unravel a mystery her family has kept from her. She has powers after all! A great power, and with finding the man's missing thing, she unleashed another power that give life to him, and his family. Push come to shoves, she saves her family for the moment, only to leave a cliff hanger that I guess will lead to the next book.

Hmmm, Carolyn had very good writing talent. I mean though to me the story didn't take off how I wanted it to. I wanted there to be more romance between Tasmin and Gabriel! Yet, I was still drawn into the story. It was a short and easy read. Tasmin is a very relatable character. She is a different kind of protagonist, that unlike a lot of stories, makes the wise decision instead of the dumb that leads to the next book. In contrast to books like the Immortal series and Twilight. So that was refreshing, to read about someone who not only made a mistake anyone would make, but she made the smart mistake. Instead of constantly making the one that would bite her in the ass later.

If you are looking for a bewitching love story, this has a little love, but it does not go a long way. The story is still entertaining, and it has a little action in it. If you like Blue Bloods, you will probably like this.
