Gr 9 Up-Suffering from severe memory loss, Eve is taken to a safe house and told she's in a witness protection program, but that fact and many others are called into question when she meets other "witnesses" who believe that the agents will eventually kill her. With no information about the crime she witnessed, the teen has no idea who to trust. She's also haunted by chilling visions that immediately follow when she uses her various powers to do things like making the birds on her wallpaper fly or walking through walls. Eventually, she is able to remember enough to go traveling through many magical worlds on a hunt for "the Magician," only to find out that she herself was created as a way for him to store power from young magical beings by the inference of their dying breaths. Only her nonmagical boyfriend's belief in her newfound humanity is able to convince Eve that she doesn't have to be defined by her past. This is an urban fantasy without a solid sense of time or place. It's contemporary in tone, but there are no distinct regional flairs or cultural references. Due to Eve's memory loss and the story being told entirely from her perspective, readers learn things in fits and starts with memories slowly taking shape and reality constantly being questioned. The narrative progresses slowly and can seem disjointed at times, but the action does pick up and leads to a satisfying, if slightly creepy, ending.-Sunnie Lovelace, Wallingford Public Library, CTα(c) Copyright 2013.

“A twisted circus of a book, completely freaky and delicious at the same time. It's a thriller, a fairy tale nightmare, and a romance all in one, unlike anything else and impossible to predict. I could not stop reading!” ―Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series

The novel centers around protagonist Eve who has been placed in a paranormal version of the witness protection program. She is the only witness to a serial killers violent exploit. The catch? Eve has retrograde amnesia and is in the midst of relearning basic everyday tasks. This tidbit poses several problem to the reader and makes the first third of the book a very tough read. Initially, Eve is a very flat, and almost emotionless girl who demonstrates no real ambition or interest in the things around her. While this makes sense from a narrative perspective, it makes for an almost painfully boring reading. Eve is stationed in a house with an agent and is also set up at a job to fit into her surroundings and pass time. There she meets love interest Zach who has the potential to transcend his status as significant other but never quite does. He has a few quirks, diarrhea of the mouth, bad home life, etc but he still felt flat to me.
