In the happy, clean community of Austin Valley, everything appears to be perfect. Seventeen-year-old Em Fuller, however, fears something is askew. Em is one of the new generation of Dream Travelers. For some reason, the gods have not seen fit to gift all of them with their expected special abilities.
Em is a Defect—one of the unfortunate Dream Travelers not gifted with a psychic power. Desperate to do whatever it takes to earn her gift, she endures painful daily injections along with commands from her overbearing, loveless father. One of the few bright spots in her life is the return of a friend she had thought dead—but with his return comes the knowledge of a shocking, unforgivable truth. The society Em thought was protecting her has actually been betraying her, but she has no idea how to break away from its authority without hurting everyone she loves.

***Jaime – #NerdGirlJay’s  Review***
Em lives in a society of Dream Travelers called Austin Valley. The Reverians, as they call themselves, receive a unique power once they hit puberty. But Em hasn’t. She is a Defect. Or so she thinks.

Rogue was a Defect too. Until learned just what his father, the president of Austin Valley, has been up to. Along with his cohorts, including Em’s father. He faked his death and left the Reverian society. He has come back and Em and their other good friend, Zack, join forces with Rogue to stop what is going on.

If you want a really different, but good read, grab this book! There is a little of everything. Magic, adventure, romance, dystopia, mystery, thrills. It is unlike anything I have read before. Em is your typical teenage girl, all she wants is to be like everyone else and receive her power. Rogue is snarky and fun, with a bit of a bad boy vibe. Zack is reliable and serious. But loyal. Em’s parents are cold and heartless, as is her older sister Dee. I loved Em’s little sister Nona and her grandmother, Tutu.

The storyline is awesome and doesn’t lose pace. It was great to read something with such a unique plot. I can’t wait for the next book!
