But things don’t go exactly as planned. Students are disappearing, Sterling starts losing time, and it all seems to center around Tetra, a girl no one else seems to notice but him. When he finally tracks her down for answers, they aren’t what he expects: He and Tetra hail from a world called Noba, and they’re being hunted by a Naga, a malevolent shapeshifter that’s marked them for destruction.
Tetra and Sterling have distinct abilities that can help them fight back, but their power depends heavily on the strength of their bond, a connection that transcends friendship, transcends romance. Years apart have left their bond weak. Jumpstarting it will require Sterling to open his heart and his mind and put his full trust in the mysterious Tetra.
If he doesn’t, neither of them will survive.
I really enjoyed this novel, I found the characters very easy to relate to and very down to earth. I loved that this was written in dual perspective, it lets the reader understand both the main characters so much better! Tetra was such a funny and lovable character, I found her very intriguing since she comes from a different world she is trying to adjust to the this new worlds slang and their way of life; one being that in Noba being female or male doesn't really matter everyone is treated equally; so, when Tetra moves in with Sterling she finds it very confusing that he's uncomfortable with her staying in his room; this also led to some very funny and uncomfortable situations for Sterling. Sterling was such an amazing character, he is so caring and very easy to relate to and I loved his sarcasm; he was such a well written character. I really liked how the authors focused on both Sterling and Tetra’s character development in this book, I really liked reading how they're getting to know each other, as well as themselves. This book had me hooked from the get go! I found the world Tetra and Sterling come from very interesting and I can't wait to see if the next book takes us there. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new fantasy read.
