It's 2218 and Zee McAdams is in her second year as a healing empath at a busy London hospital. When a mysterious young man becomes her patient, Zee's hard-won calm is pierced. Her attraction is complicated by the fact that David Sutton is an alien, a group whose presence - and purpose - on Earth is deeply mistrusted. When London and other cities experience a wave of anarchist attacks, Zee and David are brought even closer together. The more time Zee spends with David, the more she likes him - and the more questions she has. Even as their relationship deepens, Zee knows that David is still hiding something from her. Will Zee have the courage to follow her heart, no matter where it takes her?show more

About Susan Waggoner

Susan Waggoner was born in Iowa, grew up in the Minneapolis suburbs, and received degrees from the University of Iowa. She now lives and writes in New York City. Although she often dreams of Minnesota, writing this book has cured her of longing for a large home on the edge of a lake. She would, however, enjoy an extra bedroom in Manhattan.show more

Review quote

This book was good - very good. It has great plot, great characters and a very original setting. It is the best dystopian future book I have read in a long time, and the only criticism I can give is that the sequel won't be released sooner! -- Samantha Tulloch Teen Titlesshow more

Our customer reviews

(Source: I received a paperback copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Daphne from Winged Reviews, and Piccadilly Publishers.) 17-year-old Zee is a healing empath, which means that she works in a hospital and uses her special gifts to heal people. One day she is sent to see a patient who is being difficult, but when she enters the room she gets two surprises. The first is that she is strangely attracted to the patient - David, and the second is when he tells her he is an alien. Aliens have lived among humans for a while, but Zee hasn't really met many. David's being an alien isn't the biggest problem though as Zee finds herself falling in love with him. Love is very detrimental to an empaths career as it messed with their ability to feel things, and falling for David puts both Zee's heart and career at risk. David has even more surprises in store for Zee though, and Zee's adventures are only just beginning. What else is David hiding though? Why can't they be together? And what does the future hold in store for Zee? This story was okay, but I think it's probably more suited to a younger reader, maybe age 8 - 15, as the story seems quite simplistic, and the pace is quite slow. Zee was an interesting character. She obviously cared a great deal about her work and her patients, and had absolutely no intentions of ever falling in love, least of all with an alien. It was nice to see how Zee's feelings totally took her over, even when she didn't want them to, and how swept away she was by her new found love for David. I didn't really get that much of a feel for David, other than knowing that he was secretive and clearly hiding things from Zee. This theme continued throughout the entire book, and although the relationship between the pair was sweet enough at times, this dishonesty set alarm bells ringing for me. The storyline in this book was okay, if a little unbelievable at times. David's coming-out as an alien was a little weird, but nothing compared to the major bombshell that was dropped right at the end of the story, leaving us with an ending that was part cliff-hanger, and part 'to be continued...' This book is obviously just the first half of Zee and David's story, and leaves the reader with a lot more questions than answers, so if you want to read this, be prepared to have to read both books, as this is more like part 1 and 2 of a story rather than two stories in a series in my opinion. Overall; a fairly tame sci-fi/romance story, probably best suited to a younger audience (ages 8 - 15). 6.5 out of 10.show more
