From Goodreads Synopsis:
"To the one that receives this letter. Protect it with all you have. In the hands of the Reformers it would mean even greater trouble for us. The Triad must be found and the Chosen brought together. The fate of our people rest on this."
All Arianna Shae wants is to get out of Bakers Ridge and away from everyone who knows everything about her. Beginning her senior year, she sees her moment of escape getting closer and her spirits begin to rise, that is until he arrives and her life takes an unexpected turn.

As a Guardian, Chase Melina has always known what he was meant to do: protect the Chosen. Sent out on his first assignment, he's struck with the feeling that all is not what it seems. As strange things begin to happen, he becomes even more determined to keep his protegee safe, especially after seeing what she can do.

When their worlds collide Chase and Arianna must fight for their lives. Through torture, escape, new relationships, legends, and even death they are determined to find out the answers to the questions revolving around their destiny and ultimately fulfill a prophecy that could save them all.

My Impression
Arianna woke up in the middle of the woods with no recollection of how she got there. Okay, that got me all intrigued. Then this good old school scene where the lead girl got bullied... yeah, that's kinda my favorite scenes even on my mangas. Then came the lead guy, eyes only for the lead girl. Common scenes, but yeah, definitely my fave. I like dreamy scenes. 

This book really got hold of me. I found the plot thrilling, and I was always looking forward and wanting to crack something out. The world building is good, I find it simple, and you know how simplicity could sometimes blow your mind. 

I can't relate much to Arianna. I mean, she's an okay lead character, not too dull, not too extreme but there's a bit of perfection in her. Chase on the other hand is the typical teenage boy with a mission to fulfill. I find him easy to relate with. With all that's going on with his life, struggling to escape from his father's fame and tries so hard to prove himself capable. He fell in love with the girl he needs to protect.

But then I got really bored on the chasing scene, where Arianna, Jade and Chase were on the run. It's dragging on that part, I seriously wish they would outran their pursuers already cause it's getting really tiresome. And I don't really like the part on the academy, it felt like there's something missing... I can't really put it into words, it's like it's too easy? too fast? 

All in all, I did like the story and the ending made me want to read the second installment. I'd like to see how the new character Ethan, will come between Arianna and Chase. It's really something to look forward to.

Rating:  4 Stars 
Plot: Medium Paced.
Page Turner: A little.
Continued?: Yes.
Recommended: Yes.
Book Boyfriend: Chase is definitely a good catch and also looking forward for Ethan too.
