Amy Smith has always known she was different. Severe allergies, fragile health and taunts at school have made life an endurance test for the adopted seventeen year old.
When Amy starts having strange dreams, everything changes. Night after night, she becomes trapped in a shroud of black - a void of silence but for a male voice calling for a girl named ‘Marla’.
One night, the darkness clears, Leif is revealed and Amy discovers that she is the girl he has been searching for.
Immediately the two are swept up in a passionate yet forbidden love. Leif isn’t like the other boys Amy knows. Breathtakingly gorgeous, he speaks with her telepathically … not to mention, he can fly …
Desperate to find a way to be with her, Leif tells Amy of the terrifying threat to his Fae homeland, the danger to the people, and of an unforgivable betrayal to his King. He urges her to seek her true identity…. But Amy is confused... isn't it all just a dream?

For Amy things have never been normal, for starters she is extremely allergic to almost everything, besides the fact that she could never get sunburned and she had slightly pointed years but she never would have guessed what she really was.
When she starts having dreams of a half-dressed boy who claims she is his "Marla", Amy couldn't guess the strange road that lies ahead of her...
This story starts out with a bit of a confusing premise: a girl dreams about a boy. Is it real or is it imagination?
In an inspiring tale, you get to know Amy, her family and her friends as well as her daily struggles that don't seem to fit with usual teenager problems. Amy is special and she knows it, she just doesn't know why!
I loved all the characters in this book and I think they all served the purpose the had in the story and the world building was indeed amazing, combining several aspects of fairy tales and the modern world with an impressive imagination.
This book is innovative and full of "book magic" an amazing work of art that will be appreciated by all book lovers, especially the ones that love powerful and magical love stories, while also having family and friendship elements that make this book extra special and extra beautiful!
If you love any of the aspects I've mentioned you have to read this book and if you feel like reading something new and special you should give this book a try.
