"Amy Hale has built a world with blocks so basic but has made them so magical that they shine. Her writing style is exquisite. The book was just as beautiful as the cover, a wonderful representation of the unknown. The dialog between the Jane and Colt Henderson were dynamic and they made a great book couple. Readers will not be disappointed!!!" - Nerd Girl Official

This is the first in a trilogy, so I’m sure we will get more information soon, but with Jane’s abilities and how they progress and grow in the book, I really have no idea what she is. It reminds me a bit of the TV show Heroes. When Jane is again kidnapped by people who have experimented on her, we get to see more of these gifts emerge.
I think this book wraps up its own arc well enough, and gets ready for book two – without leaving you on a major cliffhanger.

At first, Jane and Colt's blossoming relationship and discovering Jane's true identity are the focal points of SOJ. But then, there's a twist: Jane's freedom--from the sinister organization that has controlled her life--quickly takes center-stage.
Throughout her hardships, Jane portrays the heart of a tigress, and is a remarkable heroine.
Thus, if you seek a sweet and dramatic romance that's jam-packed with adventure and mystery, then you want to one-click this five-star read!
Kudos, Amy! You produced a truly charismatic story. 💖
At first you think the lead character is a typical damsel in distress, with the hero swooping in to save her despite his own reservations. Not so fast...Hale takes her characters on a serious evolution with each turn of the page. Jane not only finds out more about her past and some potentially cataclysmic talents, but also a deep sense of self and inner strength which is often missing in the usual boy-meets-girl story. Many times in this genre there is an overemphasis on love at first sight, or the love of a perfect man saving the day. Hale flips the script on this one and creates a truly believable relationship between Jane and her male counterpoint, Colt. Colt is not perfect and his interactions between various characters can be downright grumbly, but Hale shares his perspective in such a way that you find yourself rooting for him. You wonder who is really saving who.
I cannot wait for the second installment of this trilogy! I am trying to predict where Hale will take the reader next in this journey and am so excited to see how it unfolds.
Above I was asked if there is violence in the book, I believe that would in the reader's perception. Sexual content? Down and dirty sex, nope, sexual tension yep.
