Shayne Barlet goes to a great school, has great friends and lives in a nice place. He also has a girlfriend he loves, but she knows the truth and so does his best friend. His life is all a lie… Shayne has been kidnapped; his powers disabled and his memory changed.

Danielle didn't mean to fall in love with Shayne. She was only supposed to watch him and report his movement. But now that he was in trouble, she just had to help him even though it meant danger to herself.

This YA/science fiction was a very interesting read and difficult to put down. I don’t normally like books like this, but I really enjoyed this one. It had the mystery, adventure, and romance that kept me guessing all the way to the end and the characters were so real and easy to relate to. I will be very interested to see how this series plays out. Ms. Lieske is doing a wonderful job and I’m giving this book a 4 spider rating.
