Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Joslyn is a mage who is very very powerful, so powerful that there is a darkness that is within her and that is aching to break free. When her family and herself lived in a commune of other mages she did something very unthinkable though honestly it wasn't her fault she went crazy. Her commune of mages kicked them out and they are now living in Valdez. A small town that seems to have a lot of different paranormal's living there. Joslyn along with her twin Bryce learn that there is a lot of different paranormal's out there and some actually do get along, though they still have to hide from the humans.
While they are living in their new place it seems that someone is killing people and it will be up to Joslyn and the un-dead leader to find out who it is, but it will be up to Joslyn to stop the person responsible can she do it and withhold the darkness that wants to break free?
I really liked how Joslyn wasn't power hungry and very sensitive to others and everything going on around her while trying to be a normal teenage girl falling in love. I really loved the paranormal within the book and the magic that Joslyn has within her.
I do believe I would read book two just to see if Joslyn will get the help and training she needs to fight this darkness. Also to find out if she will be able to be the guy she is falling for.
The actual subject matter of the book was interesting and unique. It reminded me a bit of Dannika Dark's Mageri series, which is an absolutely fantastic series, so anything that even compares to that series has some semblance of originality and imagination. Writing a novel is a huge accomplishment so I always commend any author for their hard work and dedication.
What I didn't like:
First, I want to say that this book has a ton of promise to be a really great paranormal romance book. However, I always felt like I was missing huge chunks of information that were relevant to the story and essential for the story to completely make sense. There were also times where the story switched tenses which is a no no and should have been caught by an editor. I couldn't really figure out whether the book was YA or adult... I definitely think it was for adult readers but the MC was in high school so it seems like the lines were blurred. There were also so many aspects of the story line that were disorganized and really underdeveloped. There was basically an insta-lust attraction between Joslyn and her love interest that by the end of the book developed into a "I think I love him" attraction, but there was absolutely nothing that happened to cause this.. there were a few conversations but I wanted to see some meaningful developments and time spent together to justify their feelings. There is also a "bonus short story" at the end of the book that I feel like was misplaced. Throughout the entire book I felt like it began in a strange place and it should have started with this short story instead. Also, the ending...just no. I adore cliffhangers. But this ending just seemed to stop right in the middle of a chapter and there was much more story to be told.
This book could be absolutely phenomenal with some work and good beta readers.
This story was very interesting on how the family was in a commune and how they were brain washed about other paranormal. They were told to believe that they were the best and all the others were bad. Well as they had to leave the commune and start over in Alaska, they found out that what they were told to believe was not true. This happens all the time today. Families, neighborhoods, cities, communes, churches, schools and so on, go by what they are told down the generations and that is what is believed.
The story follows a 18 year old girl in high school and her twin brother and their parents. She has powers stronger than anyone else around. but her powers keep getting her into trouble. The twins make a friend on the first day at their new school. This girl ends up being special to them. There is a guy that thinks he is all that and makes a comment on how he knows who they are. He ends up being trouble and killed.
I kept feeling like the twins didn't belong together. but that the girl belonged with the high and mighty guy as twins and the special girl and the other twin should be twins. If this doesn't make since to you, well then you are just going to have to read it to find out what I am talking about.
This was a fun read! It has a tight knit family, new community, new paranormal ( to the family), love that shouldn't be, abuse ( not explicit), surprises, suspense and some action. It is a very good read for older teens. I enjoyed it to no end and can't wait for book 2.
