After reading so many great reviews on this book I just knew I had to read it. It was what I wanted and offered so much more. Plot: This is about a girl named Marguerite who lives in a time of time travel. I can’t really explain other than it reminded me of the movie Jumper but instead of jumping to places, she can jump to different parallel universes. This indeed intrigued me to no end and it made me read the book faster. Relationships: This book is all about relationships. Relationships with friends/co-workers, parents, etc. I really enjoyed how all of these relationships develop over the period of the story. The reader is able to know more about her parents, her history and why she is traveling to different parallel universes. Parallel Universes: One...

  After reading this book, I now must go back to finish the Evernight series. I started it, but still have two books left to read in the series.  I loved this book. There was so much action right from the start that I had to sit up even straighter in my chair just to get reader for the ride! So, what I loved most about this book is the awesome characters. Both main characters, Balthazar and Skye were freshly unique. It was goo d to read such a fantastic story along with amazing well written characters. I loved that these characters are flawed. The past that both these characters carried is hard. They learn to deal with things on their own. Ms. Gray brings these characters together through their traumatic ordeals. They learn to live and to love again. The love...
