My rating:


8.5 out of 10!


Reality and fantasy collide when Noah and Gabby meet. Both have secrets: they are not human, cannot be killed and are falling in love with each other.

Gabby Valis is a regular fifteen year old; her biggest worries in life are friends, boys and her annoying brother Zac. But her life is shattered the day she finds out she is not human. She had no idea she belonged to a secret species which has evolved from humans; ‘Xaveriques’. After being hit by a car, her body is forced to heal itself, and Gabby’s powers are unleashed…

‘I died this morning. At exactly 8.17 am my heart stopped beating and I lay cold and still in the street. At 8.24 am my heart resumed beating, I jumped up from the dusty pavement and ran home. Confused? Well, that makes two of us.’


In Whole: This book captures your attention from the very beginning!

Plot: I really feel that there is nothing to not like about because I feel that Karyn’s writing is very safe. Nothing too bold. It has it’s good and bad, but for now, I think it’s pretty cool 😀

I really wanted to give this 10 stars because there really isn’t anything to hate, but I feel like the whole story really has the potential to go even further!

If Karyn tries to push a little more and go wild with her characters and plots, it’ll be even more amazing 🙂

Nonetheless, I felt that the bond between characters was very strong. I really love that about the characters!

Praise for author: I really applaud you for putting your ideas into reality. This books is amazing and even though it’s a short book, I already feel like I want to know more about Noah and Gabby!
