Jane Jonas is nearing her 16th birthday and troubled by unsettling recurring dreams where the same mysterious boy her age comes to her, telling Jane that they are each other’s destiny. Her mother is increasingly anxious about Jane’s disruptive sleepwalking episodes, but for Jane her dream world and reality are about to collide … 
When she develops a friendship with an enigmatic stranger in town, the blond, uber-cool Evan, it’s exciting, it’s new, and Jane wants him more than she’s ever wanted anybody – until her mystery dream boy gets in the way. 

Now Jane is caught between two worlds: one familiar, but tinged with romance and excitement; the other dark and dangerous, where angels, werewolves, and an irresistible stranger are trying to seduce her …

I think every teenage girl (or young women for that matter) who likes the “new”supernatural outlook of scary creatures of the night,such as werewolves,vampires and witches,will enjoy this book. Like Twilight and The Vampire Diaries, it has captured these fictional characters with a typical stereotype of horror and death in a modern and somewhat human light, going through the normal difficulties of average teenagers. I felt using the concept of two different worlds which are the same in every way, except for the inhabitants, highlighted this fact. 
Luca, the lovely teenage werewolf, just wants to feel loved like a normal teenage boy, adored by his girlfriend. He actually states this saying he just wants Jane like a boy wants a girl. Jane your average looking girl with no confidence feels much the same way and believes nothing extraordinary will ever happen to her.
It is that kind of longing us girls feel. We feel emotionally tied to this book as we feel exactly like Jane, average and unimportant and just want that bit of excitement to believe that even though you feel there is nothing going for you, an incredible,immortal werewolf from a magical world does. It is dangerous, mysterious and romantic but still keeping the basic point of the book! The plot line is amazing compared to other books i have read in the similar fantasy. Creatures of the fantasy world are hard to write about as we don’t have any proof of them existing, they are just our imagination and a great addition to children’s tales. We see them as we would want to see them, beautiful, handsome, powerful and many other words that describe our own tales and pictures of these creatures and immortal beings.
 I recommend it as a luxurious, excellent and imaginative read that all, whom are able, should read.  I really liked this book and enjoyed how characters were connected through twists and turns throughout the book. I would have liked a better ending as it was left on a bit of a cliff hanger but hopefully, this is because there will be a sequel? (PLEASE!!!)
