On top of that, this is a very badly executed tale of the classic orphan finding she has special powers combined with the classic girl refusing to be ladylike and owning her own. Plus the classic two gorgeous men interested in her romantically. None of these themes are well executed. The power is never really clarified, she really is not independent, and there really is no romance. Character development is quite poor. All in all, a hodgepodge of a book.
Science fantasy starts after the plane crash and the story starts to move along.
Jessica morphs into "Anmi" -- the last survivor of a race that disappeared hundreds of years ago, not necessarily on planet earth. The primitive, tribal people see Jessica as their long awaited savior. The local authorities see a person with special abilities that they hope to harvest by extracting something from her body.
Jessica finds a man who claims to be interested in her for her intelligence but complications follow.
The author is masterful in keeping Jessica as smart, stubborn teenager through out the adventure.
I loved Jessica's character from the beginning. She was so different from every other character I had ever read about. Her take on life and why she felt the way she did about herself and life.
She was searching for herself in all of that, truly different, truly unique and a beautiful soul.
I cherished Ikay as a down to earth protector and mentor; a truly remarkable elder, one I would wish for myself!
Daya charmed me all the way and I fell in in love with him because he wasn't sauve and self assured, just simply himself.
The story was so bitter sweet and I Felt the longing for a lost world and history, a tribe of one's own.
This book will be long remembered by me.
Thank you for immersing me in reading again
The book needs another round of editing with focus on continuity. Scenes jump locations and it is hard to keep focus of where the main characters are.
characters are two dimensional and I really dont care enough to read the next book

It is a fast paced, bewildering at times, but unputadownable story. Jessica is a 17 year old misfit, teased about her looks & her odd ways. On her way back to school her plane crashes & it's not long before she realises she is bot on Earth.
So starts her adventures, she starts to learn to control her special abilities. Gets caught up in local politics & falls in love. At times she's bloody annoying & you want to shake her & say get a grip! On the whole though you do find yourself sympathetic towards her.
All in all Patty shows herself to be a great storyteller once again.
The characters are well thought, you can relate to them well. Although I would have liked to see more development of the characters over a longer period; the plot itself races, and I much prefer that to a long, less dynamic read. I will buy the next book.
