What would you do if you discovered that everything you’ve ever known to be your reality was a lie? What if…The things that go bump in the night, things you thought were simply a figment of your wild imagination are in fact very real? Would you live your life differently if you knew you were going to be corrected…erased from this world sometime around your sixteenth birthday? You and your twin sister were never meant to be born. There will be no place to run…No place to hide…You won’t even know they’re coming…Do you have what it takes to survive your Correction? Do you have what it takes to leave your humanity behind?If your answer is yes then hold on tight… …it’s going to be one hell of a ride!


Kayn’s world was destroyed in one night.  Her family and her twin sister taken away from her.  She was left for dead, but survived.  But, surviving is just the beginning.  Finding out what she really is and how she must now protect herself will be the hardest journey.  Kayn isn’t alone in this though.  With her best friend, Kevin, beside her with his own powers and their new budding relationship they will face challenges that will change them both.  Can Kayn survive and will her relationship with Kevin last?

This was a great first book in this series.  The creation of the world, the tiers and clans are well crafted.  Within the world are the diverse characters, even the twins are unique.  Kayn and Kevin are the most diverse characters.  You get to see them grow and change through the trials and training they go through.  In a bit of typical fashion, Kayn and Kevin still go through the teenage growing pains of jealousy and love, but the biggest challenge to them is the acceptance of their new life that parallels their current teenage life.  Kim Cormack weaves a great paranormal young adult book.  This is a strong start to a series that I am looking forward to continuing.  If you are looking for a new series that will have you craving more, than you will want to pick up this book ASAP.
