Overview

""I try not to think about it, what I did to that boy." "
Seventeen-year-old Kenna Marsden has a secret.
She's haunted by a violent tragedy she can't explain. Kenna's past has kept people-even her own mother-at a distance for years. Just when she finds a friend who loves her and life begins to improve, she's plunged into a new nightmare: her mom and twin sister are attacked, and the dark powers Kenna has struggled to suppress awaken with a vengeance.
On the heels of the assault, Kenna is exiled to a nearby commune, known as Eclipse, to live with a relative she never knew she had. There, she discovers an extraordinary new way of life as she learns who she really is, and the wonders she's capable of. For the first time, she starts to feel like she belongs somewhere; that her terrible secret makes her beautiful and strong, not dangerous. But the longer she stays at Eclipse, the more she senses there is something menacing lurking underneath its idyllic veneer. And she begins to suspect that her new family may have sinister plans for her...

Kenna Marsden can senseand steala person's life force simply by touching them. Back when Kenna was 10, before she knew what she was capable of, she drained the life of a malicious boy who killed her sister's cat and its kittens. When that night comes back to haunt her family, Kenna's mother takes the 17-year-old to Eclipse, a secluded commune in the nearby mountains. While there, Kenna meets her grandmother and other members of the community known as the Kalyptra, who teach her how to curb her hunger for anima or living energy. But the longer Kenna stays at Eclipse, the more she begins to forget her old life and finds it easier to dismiss the unusual things happening around her. Bosworth (Struck) has hold of a gripping premise, and her novel starts off strong as she delves into the Kalyptra's lore and Kenna's intense past. But while Kenna is forced to make some difficult decisions, a too-easy ending and the supernatural weirdness she uncovers may frustrate all but the most devoted fans of the paranormal. Ages 14up.
