Book Description

She’s a loner, she likes to fight and, oh yeah...she has the ability to see the demons that lay beneath the faces of ordinary humans. It’s a gift Charlie Wright inherited the night her parents were brutally murdered when she was fourteen years old.

Now in her last year of high school, Charlie just can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble.  Rather than taking a one-way trip to juvenile detention, Charlie chooses to join a mysterious group called The ForeverLand Alliance.

And then her life really gets weird.

Charlie finds herself magically transported to an alternate universe. In Semper Terra, no one ages, people fly, and one stunningly gorgeous, immortal man manages to capture Charlie’s heart and awaken the adult woman she is becoming.

But it’s not all fun and games. For Charlie is training to become an Annihilator, a select group of Semper Terrans who protect mankind from all of those things that go “bump in the night”.

It’s only when Charlie finds herself stuck in the middle of a prophecy that could bring about the end of the world that she truly begins to understand the deep sacrifices she will have to make.

My Review:
Charlie has never really felt like she fit in. She is different then everyone else. She is a trouble maker and gets into quite a few fights. She also has this little problem where she kind of sees monsters faces on real people! Yea, that one will throw you for a loop. After a fight at school she is approached by someone who offers her a different life. In a whirlwind Charlie is learning about alternate universes and hidden powers. Her life is never going to be the same. Semper Terra, could be her new home. She can learn how to use her gifts and of course there's the super hot instructor, Caiden. Charlie soon learns that this new life isn't just fun and games and flying everywhere. Becoming an annihilator means life or death. Will Charlie accept her new life? Will she be able to deal with her growing feelings for Caiden?

Even finding a world where you feel like you fit in things aren't always as they appear. There are people behind the scenes trying to get you down. Charlie is a pretty fast learner and is coming along very well. She never really had friends before and here she does. Justas is hilarious and I loved him! I felt like there were the group of mean girls too. Always getting in the way and making you feel bad. Charlie works through everything and overcomes a lot in her life. 

Caiden is your bad boy teacher who is off limits right? Or is he? He enjoys killing the bad guys and hanging out on the beach of Semper Terra. He does extra training with Charlie to get her ready for the real life fighting in the moral world. He cares for her. I feel like they kind of rushed into things and moved kind of fast but, it worked for them. Especially given Charlie's tragic past. She can finally trust someone again. 

This one ends after one heck of a fight. The cliffhanger will leaving anxiously waiting for the sequel!
