Most teenage girls know their name, where they came from, who they are. Not G, a beautiful redhead with unusual markings on her wrist. She gets her name from a silver locket she keeps around her neck, unaware the engraved letter “G” on its front holds the secret to her past.
G’s life before the age of six has been a mystery to her. Each night for the last twelve years she’s been haunted by the same nightmare—a war. Horrendous beasts, warriors able to wield the four elements, and a boy who saves her by means of blue fire taunt her memory. But on her eighteenth birthday, G’s life begins to unravel. When she meets her new Chemistry professor, a man with an uncanny resemblance to the boy who saves her, she knows there must be more to her dreams.
It’s dangerous not knowing who you are, what you’re capable of, and what future awaits you. Especially when the darkness that slaughtered your entire world, just found you.

My Rating: ★★★★☆
Amazing, just.. wow.
There are so many good things going on within this book. The plot, flow and overall tone of this wonder was out of this world. Right from the start I was stuck on this one. It's that story that gets into your head and, no matter what you do you can't stop thinking about it until you dive back into that world.
Though this does follow a very over use trope that most YA fantasy are build on. Girl with no parents, mysterious past, one thing that holds all the keys, and that one person that mysteriously shows up who knows more then what they say. But, I have overlooked that bothersome start, because though this story starts with that basic building block, it doesn't stick close to home. No, the world is luscious; the detail is amazing, you feel like your inside the book, moving with G, fighting and laughing.
There are also some spelling/grammar errors, but, they don't take away from this rich, no, powerful tail of trying to find out who you are, what you are, and why. Another go at editing couldn't hurt, but as I said, these minor errors can be easily skipped.
In all I highly recommend this book. It's as addicting as it is beautiful, I can't wait for book 2!!!!
