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.
“What. Have. You. Done?!” He didn’t wait. He lunged for me, a switchblade in his hand. Matching rage roared inside me. He’d stabbed Lincoln. Was about to kill me. I swung around and surged to my feet, flung out my hands, and pushed. He went flying and landed on his back.
“Whoa,” Tucker said for all of them.
I stormed out of the circle, all my focus on Phillip, whose fury hadn’t been affected by my power. “You’ve destroyed everything!” he bellowed. He raised the knife again. I sensed my friends lurching forward to intercept him, to help me, but this was my fight. I swept my left hand back and they stopped like they’d hit a glass wall. Jordan gasped. Power surged through my body. I was stronger than I’d ever been, and I wasn’t afraid. I knew I could stop Phillip. He couldn’t hurt me. I stepped back. The knife swept downward and missed me. That threw Phillip off balance so he stumbled forward. I stepped back again, and he fell to one knee. He seemed to be moving in slow motion, but I knew that I was really moving fast, instead. I could hear the others yelling, but it was muffled and distorted. I kicked at Phillip’s hand and knocked the knife a few feet away. Bing stooped to pick it up. I planted my foot against Phillip’s chest, and he froze, glaring at me with the heat of a thousand fiery suns.
I laughed. It wasn’t a nice sound, but it came from me, from my own emotions and reactions, not from damage by the crimes Phillip had committed with my light.
