With her parents’ murderers dead, Eren can finally concentrate on fitting in at Spruce Knoll High, not to mention figuring out what it means to be a channeler. If only it were that easy. It turns out she isn’t normal even among channelers - she may be a legendary warrior meant to protect the earth in a last great battle.

But Mayan prophecies are the least of her worries as she involuntarily starts to gather her own Society, another girl moves in on Aiden, her powers rage out of control, and worst of all, someone is stalking her. To top it all off, Eren discovers she doesn’t have to be a channeler after all - she has a choice.

As an old threat closes in and she risks ending up like her parents, she is forced to decide. Be a normal teenager and leave the legendary warrior stuff to someone else, or embrace a dark destiny?

This review was first posted on Candace's Book Blog.
I like Eren and I like Aiden.  I like that they have such strength and that they truly love each other.  I also like that for the most part their relationship is issue free.  Though there was a spot toward the end where I truly felt Eren way overreacted to something, other then that their relationship was very smooth. 

The setting of Spruce Knoll is nice.  I've decided I like how it all works.  This town full of Channeler's is quite interesting.  I also like that there are issues of prejudice because the Irish think they should all marry Irish and Mayan should marry Mayan, etc.  Eren and Aiden are doing a good job at showing people that mixing races isn't so bad.  
Heather McCorkle is a great writer with a fantastic imagination.  She's created a world and characters that I enjoy reading about.
