But Kayla's life changes when Daniel shows up. He knows about Kayla's power and blackmails her into helping him save his mother from an unknown kidnapper.
But Daniel has secrets as well, including his own power of teleportation. As Daniel and Kayla search for Daniel's mother, they uncover more secrets about the dangerous source of their magic. Sarah Beth Durst creates rich, deep and realistic characters set in a surprisingly believable alternate reality where magic is real. Her storytelling is entertaining and her characters are marvelous. This book is perfect for teens who like a touch of the supernatural in a recognizable and realistic world.
