Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.
A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars... - Goodreads

I didn't know what to expect of this book but I have to admit that it surprised me completely! It's so beautifully written and thought about.
The characters remain very close to the previous book but you can see that they evolve and change with every obstacle they have to surpass and every event that they go through! Living in the midst of a war ambience isn't easy and they show it so well!
While still having the "Romeo and Juliet" feel to it this story has changed a lot. It isn't an introduction to the world anymore, now it's all about fighting for yourself and for others, it's about love and hate, about friendship and enemies and about loyalty and betrayal.
You're bound to be unable to stop reading this book until you reach the very of it and even then you'll want more!
This is a perfect book to all of you who seek thrilling adventures with amazing characters and a love story that will not only make you cry but bring tears to your eyes!
