London, 2218 A.D. Seventeen-year-old Zee is an intern empath. She’s focused on her job, poised for a great career—until one day an attractive patient undoes her hard-earned calm. As an empath, she cannot afford such distractions, but neither can she stay away from David, even when she discovers he’s one of a mysterious alien race. As London comes under attack by anarchist bombings, and as Zee struggles to get a handle on her unusually strong psychic abilities, David starts pulling away. Although Zee’s sure he’s attracted to her, David has secrets he cannot share. But it’s too late for Zee. She’s losing her heart to the gray-eyed alien boy, and she’s determined to follow him—no matter how far it may take her.

My Rating:
I was not a fan of this book. When I first read the description, I figured it would be completely awesome since I've really been into space books recently and I couldn't wait to start this one. Unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations and I didn't end up loving it like I thought I would.
The story moved way to slowly for me and I found myself bored and not really caring what happened. It seemed like nothing really happened until the book was almost over and the plot dragged along. There were also topics that were pretty hard to understand and should have been explained more, like the act of divesting.
The characters were another huge disappointment for me. They weren't as developed as they could have been and I really only liked David. I really found myself disliking Zee. She let a guy jeopardize everything she had been working for and let him distract her from every other important thing in her life.
The only thing that really caught my attention was David's real reason for being on Earth which was revealed at the end of the book. While it was interesting and created drama and suspense it simply wasn't enough to make me want to read the next book to find out what happens.
