Velma, a foster kid, is trying to escape her duties as the Kachina, the person who must kill the person she loves in order to save the world. She runs away from that life to a town called Fairhope, hoping she can live normally. But when her past comes knocking on her door, she is forced to prepare for the fight of her life, the fight that could be the end of her life. If she dies, the world will go with her.
By the first page of the book I was addicted to it. I had a lot of emotions during this book, and by the end of it I was crying along with the characters. One of the best things about this book is that Velma didn’t get a fairy tale ending, which made the book seem more realistic. There should be a prequel to this book about the training and Velma’s life as a Taram. I would definitely read it.
