Description: For seventeen-year-old Lena, living in the trailer park with the rest of town’s throwaways isn’t exactly paradise. Dealing with a drunken father who can’t keep his fists to himself doesn’t help matters either. The only good thing in her life, other than track, is the mysterious man who visits her dreams, promising to find her.
When a chair burns her arms, Lena chalks it up to stress-induced crazy. Yet as bizarre incidents escalate, even being crazy can’t explain it all away… until one day dream guy does find her.
Tarek lost Lena seventeen years ago after she was accused of treason and marked Tainted. He finally discovers her reborn on Earth into a life of suffering as punishment for her crime. However, someone else has already found her… and wants her dead. Willing to sacrifice everything, he fights to keep her safe so she can live the only life she’s ever known—even if that life doesn’t include him

Cover: I love it! The eyes alone are so captivating.
Review: This book took a hold of me from page 1. I really like Lena, the way she stands up to her father, helps her mother but doesn’t lose herself in it. She is a doer through the whole book. And I really liked that she was different from her earlier self and the way this was handled.
The side characters are likeable, too; no one dimensional personalities.
It’s a really fun read, but I have to add towards the end it felt a little bit rushed? Maybe? But I still will buy the second part and reread the first some time. And you should check it out too.
I bought it on Amazon.de for free, right now it’s 3,38 Dollar. So worth it.
