Formats: Paperback, eBook
Eighteen-year-old Roxie Sebastian lives a charmed life, and she knows it. Too bad she can’t feel it.
All her life, she’s felt disconnected from the world around her. Everything changes just before graduation, when she’s drawn to an eerie, brilliant light-which narrowly misses her as it blows up her friend Lincoln’s car. Clearly someone’s after Roxie, and finally Lincoln tells her the truth: He and Roxie are angels, beings from another dimension, and that light is her soul, separated from her human body in a traumatic birth.
Once a skeptical Roxie rules out the other possibilities-like Lincoln created this delusion to escape his abusive father-she accepts her gut-deep knowledge of the truth. But someone has been screwing with her light, using it to commit crimes, and their actions are about to cause irreparable damage to two worlds: the one she lives in, and the one she can’t remember.
Aided by her best friend Jordan, her boyfriend Tucker, and Lincoln, Roxie tracks down the criminal and uncovers many more secrets not only of her past, but of the history of their race on Earth. And then Roxie faces a horrible dilemma-the only way she can stop them from ripping apart both worlds is to fuse with her light…which could be tainted by the evil with which it was used.
This was really great!
It was a little bit of a slow starter for me, but to be fair we got to the good parts fast enough that I was a happy chappy!
So we get to meet Roxie, just a few days away from graduating high school and makes a huge discovery that pretty much changes her life. Roxie is surrounded by a really good group of friends (Jordan and Linc) and a pretty decent boyfriend Tucker).
Roxie is an angel and so is Linc…
Thinks get interesting, when she discovers that she lost her light at birth and someone is currently using it for nefarious purposes. See, I told you things get really good!
Honestly, I really enjoyed it not that I expected not to, after all any books with Angel and Gods, are pretty much garanteed to make me happy (unless they are really terrible!).
I really liked Roxie, Tucker, Linc and Jordan a lot, for high schoolers they are really a smart and enterprising bunch and we get some really good twists in there that made the book really interesting especially at the end.
This is your typical starter book of a series, and I am expecting quite a lot of action in the second and third book based on the image just below and how Full Fusion finished. Hopefully (fingers crossed), we will not have so long to wait for the next book.
I really think Full Fusion was a really good book and lovely start to an exciting series and I cannot wait to be reading more. I am going to be highly recommending it and I do hope you love it as much as I did!
