For P.J. Stone, being a “Seer” who has never seen anything is less than fun. And P.J. isn’t known for her patience.

To make matters worse, she must choose a suitable mate to continue the Seer bloodline. Duty always comes before her heart…at least that’s what her parents taught her. When she finds herself wanting someone who is considered off-limits, P.J. is forced to question everything she believes.

As if navigating her love life isn’t complicated enough, P.J. finally receives a vision—of a threat to her world that only she can perceive. But no one will believe a fledgling Seer’s warnings. With nowhere else to turn, she may decide to trust a stranger with her life, her world, and maybe even her heart.  -Goodreads


My Thoughts
 P.J. is a girl straddling  two realities.  The first being that of an eighteen year old high school senior, complete with crushes, parties, and pecking orders.  
The second...
Well, that's just a little more complicated.

In her second reality, P.J. is a "seer".  Able to see portals that lead to and from Earth from other dimensions, P.J. is part of an elite group of people charged to keep the planet safe from all manner of invasion.
Because said is passed through females within the "seer" line and those lines can only thrive through mating with male "Gatekeepers"; her newly discovered and searingly intense love for a certain beautiful and darkly gallant "Guardian"  is strictly forbidden.
  
As if that isn't bad enough.  Her vision gifts are late in coming, and when they do, she finds herself seeing things too horrifying to believe.
And...
The emergence of her gifts awakens  a mysterious stranger named Khol; who claims that she is destined to be his mate and that he alone can help her defeat the threat shown to her by her visions.

This book is all about the layers
First, the Romeo and Juliet that is the first story of the read.
Couple this with the introduction of the mysterious and very powerful Khol, the emergence of P.J's powers, and the looming threat posed by the breaches at the gate and voila...Great book.
Aside from all of the afore mentioned reasons that this book stands out, there is the unexpected and very well done sexual aspect of this read.
The fact that P.J. and her Romeo "make love" early in the story sets the stage for very important and life changing discoveries for them both later.
This book is one that one you start...you MUST finish.
Can't wait for book 2!!!
