"The only three people in the world who I truly loved were my best friend, Ben, my Uncle Spencer and his fiancee, Irene. I am now grateful for what I didn't know on that sunny afternoon. One of them would soon be lost to me. The other two, I was destined to kill without hesitation or remorse.
It wasn't premeditated.
It was what needed to be done.
So I did it."

Success means love. Failure a death sentence.

But first Emily has to join forces with the mysterious Gifted & Talented set and the darkly beautiful Henry Seadon. And survive. Killing the Misery-Makers who get in their way is a necessary evil.

17-year-old Emily suffers from seizures, and when she blacks out during a seizure, she is transported to different worlds, where she is hiding from people known only as the ‘misery-makers’.
Three and a half years earlier Emily had a seizure and when she was transported to this other world, her aunt-to-be was somehow transported with her, and didn’t return with her. She’s been in a coma ever since, and Emily has lived with the guilt ever since.
Now a student starting at university, Emily has new things to worry about, but the threat of parallel dimensions and seizures won’t go away.

This was an interesting introduction to the story, with a little background to Emily’s life and strange inter-dimensional trips. It is obvious that this is just part 1 of the story though, and is not a story in itself. It remains to be seen exactly what the nature and purpose of these strange encounters is, and what the ‘gifted and talented’ students have to do with it.
6 out of 10.
