Summary from Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Abigail Johnson is Gifted.

Blessed—or cursed—with Sight and Healing, Abby lives an unsettled life, moving from place to place and staying one step ahead of the darkness that hunts her. When she arrives in Jackson, Wyoming, she is desperate to maintain the illusion of normalcy, but she is plagued with visions of past lives mixed with frightening glimpses of her future. Then she meets Kye, a mysterious boy who seems so achingly familiar that Abby is drawn to him like he’s a missing piece of her own soul.

Before Abby can discover the reason for her feelings toward Kye, the darkness catches up to her and she is forced to flee again. But this time she’s not just running. She is fighting back with Kye at her side, and it’s not just Abby’s life at stake.

My Review: 
I am glad that I didn't wait long to start reading this amazing story. It kept me up at night reading because I didn't want to put it down and not know what was going to happen next. This is a well written story with great characters. I can't read the sequel!

Abby is a teenage girl living with her mother and grandmother. Abby is gifted, she is a healer and has sight. Her grandma is a great healer and is trying to teach Abby how better her skills with healing. They move around a lot and after her grandmother's tragic death, Abby and her mom move to Jackson, Wyoming. It's here that she meets some friends who are not at all what they first seem. While on a trip to her friend Rose' birthday party is when everything changes for Abby. She starts talking and connecting with the mysterious teenage boy Kye. They are drawn together in more ways then they know.

When the pieces start falling into place and the story starts really coming together it just keeps getting more and more exciting. Abby and Kye will be up against people from their present and their past as well as an evil that they are not sure they can conquer. There is also a curse that they hope to break or their time together will not be as long as they are hoping for.

This book you will not want to put down. I loved the characters and the story. I enjoyed how the author didn't rush their romance but it was timed out perfect for the story. I can't wait to start reading the sequel and find out what happens next.
