DIVERGENT meets OCEAN’S EIGHT in this urban fantasy heist!

On my seventeenth birthday, I wake up in the hospital to find I just survived a sketchy but terrible accident. My parents stand by my bedside—both are beautiful, wealthy, and super-nice. They tell me that once I leave the hospital, I’ll attend the prestigious ECHO Academy, where I’ll churn out equations for the government along with my mega-smart peers.

So, I’m living the perfect life.

Then why does everything feel all wrong?

My parents, my house and even ECHO Academy…none of it fits. Plus, what’s up with Thorne, my brooding yet yummy classmate who keeps telling me I need to remember my true past, which seems to have included a lot of us kissing? That’s one thing I’d really like to remember, except for the fact that I’m pretty sure Thorne is hiding a ton of nasty secrets of his own, including the fact that he may not be from this world. But considering how my own past seems alien to me, it’s not like I can judge. Plus, Thorne has dimples. That’s a problem.

And worst of all, why does it feel so yucky to work on these calculations for the government? It’s all supposed to be part of ECHO, but my heart tells me that I’m helping something truly terrible come to pass. Thorne seems to think that kissing him again will release my real memories.

Maybe it’s time to pucker up.

This has got to be my new favorite series, or maybe I should say that I am adding it to my faves list for sure.

To being with, I do highly recommend starting with the 2 little prequels. I tend to read those after, but this time I did in the right order and I am so happy I did so.  IMHO it makes it so so so much better and clearer.

It is my opinion/suggestion, you are under no obligation, but have I ever steered you wrong?

I have already said that I loved it, and I cannot wait for more.  It all boiled down to the characters Thorne and Meimi. You know me and my never ending love for strong female leads and boy do we get one here!

I am not going to go into too much details, but I can tell you that this git my heart racing and out such a huge smile on my face, that we can safely say that Christina has done an epic job!

I truly enjoyed the intro to the Omniverse, it was a first for me; but I still internally debating on how it is comparable to the multiverses commonly referred to our superheroes on the big and small screen.  I think I will need to read more, before I can give you all a proper determination, I just love that this was new to me!

Was there any mention of omniverses before and I did not know?

But back to business, I am considering this a hit and I cannot wait for the next book. I am curious though, how many books to be in the series? Will we get them fast enough or do I have to be prepared to suffer long waits? (Please say it isn’t so!)…

I am going to very highly recommend Alien Minds and I hope you love it as much as I did. Don’t forget to grab the prequels you will thank me later.

I promise to dig in deeper with the next book, I do not want to spoil it for you guys so I suggest you start reading stat!!!!
