A girl, a prophecy, and two warring gods equals destiny!Hope Fairmont longs for a normal teenage life, but with a gift like hers, normal equals healing illnesses and injuries instantly. Keeping a secret like that isn’t easy, but a small town is the perfect place for her to heal those who can’t heal themselves, and an even better place for her father, James Fairmont, to hide his daughter from the rest of the world. Life takes an unexpected turn when two handsome strangers move into town and begin unearthing other secrets concerning Hope’s future and past, revealing to Hope that her gift for healing may be the fulfillment of an ancient, Japanese prophecy gone wrong. Staying away from these mysterious newcomers would be the smart thing to do, but Victor’s gentle, easy manner, and Tie’s mixed signals and strange mood swings draw her hopelessly closer to revealing the secret she and her father have been so desperate to hide. Hope’s life is complicated further with visions of a previous life and the arrival of a supernatural demon sent to assassinate her before she learns what she is truly capable of. With the support of her father, the fiery loyalty of her best friend Angie, and the child-like love of Kirby, a ten-year-old patient, Hope must fight against the forces of a relentless demon god while unwinding the tangled pieces of her past, proving to herself and those she loves that destiny isn’t determined by some cosmic reading of the stars, but by the individual choices one makes.

**I recieved this book by the author in exchange for an honest review**
Oh wow seriously I’m in shock with that ending. Need to pull myself together to write this review. Don’t even know where to begin. God that was bloody good. What a fantastic ending.
okay so when i first started reading this book I was like oh boy another predictable teen romance new guy/guys in school girl is different la de la. But and that is a huge but after a few pages more I realised this book was so much more. Her charaters just sort of brought the story to life. Hope, Tie, Angie and Victor are just great characters I fell for there loveable charm right away and was pulled into this story with its quite unique plotline. Yes some of this book is a bit predictable but it doesn’t take away from the amazing characters which I sort of thought pulled me in and kept me reading
I’ve loved this book through and through and I’ve heard people mention a second book after this one and I’d quite happily buy the second book well if I want to know what happens I’ll need to beware has an awesome cliffhanger ending.
if you like books that are very YA and love a good character and good storyline then you’d most likely enjoy reading this. I know I totally loved it.
Actual rating 4.5

Wow this was good.
Spoilers: (view spoiler)[ this seems very infernal devices to me. But this time I don’t like them both. I 100% like tie. I feel like victor and her teacher are not really interested in her. It seems like tie and her were rebelling against them. And I think she should again.
Angie was totally that girl that died or something. Why was she so upset about that story. Everyone is saying victor is nice and sweet but I’m not really seeing that
(22% I feel like I am reading percy jackson again ahah. especially with the mythology class. So obviously the teacher, tie and her are involved in something.Maybe she is destined to be together but they obviously don’t like each other. I am thinking she either got memories erased or this is a past life that is being brought up? hmmmm… and that god is her dad? he said that she will find the one she is destined so it must be him)
I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait to read book two. The characters are awesome and they grab you from the beginning. This is a unique healer story with a unique mythological twist. If you enjoy YA paranormal fantasy with mythological themes you’ll love this book and the series. If you enjoy captivating characters that are uniquely their own you’ll love this story. The author really does an amazing job and has made it into one of my favorite author lists. Thank you CJ Anaya for an awesome story.
I got a minute ahead on my review reading and slipped this one in. I really needed a change of genre scenery so I thought this looked good. It’s paranormal YA and I really liked it. 🙂 The pacing was fast- like the whole book spans a few days in time. It ended all hanging over a cliff-ish so now I’m equally annoyed and desperate to read the next one. But, alas, I have no time right now to pick up the next book so I’ll have to wait. I will definitely be reading this whole series though. It’s just a matter of time.

This book was incredibly interesting and well paced. I first started reading it while on the treadmill and I was so wrapped up in the story that before I knew it I had walked over five miles and the book was done! Not only was I incredibly sore 🙂 but I immediately wanted to read the next book in the series. That to me speaks of a keeper of a book. A few days later I decided to read the book again. I was happy to see that the story held up to a second read through and I noticed a lot more detail that didn’t stand out as much during my first fast read through.
The story is about a girl named Hope and her incredible ability to heal. The process by which she effects this healing is well thought out and described in a way that is believable. There are also tie ins to Japanese mythology and the normal teenage issues in any YA book. What I loved most was the relationship with Hope’s best friend Angie. It was exactly like what my relationship with my best friend would have been if we had grown up together instead off meeting right after High School. The back and forth between the two girls is so much like my relationship that I immediately had to call my best friend when I was done with the book.
I am really looking forward to the next book in this series and I know that it will be just as well thought out and engaging as this one was. 🙂
