Ethan has been having dreams about a girl. Pretty typical for a red blooded American teenager, but when SHE appears outside of his dreams he knows the dreams aren't ordinary and neither is the girl. In the small Southern town of Gatlin where the only thing out of the ordinary is the town is an old man who lives alone, things are about to get shaken up a bit. With Casters, beings that are not quite human who have magically qualities, starting to take over run the neighborhood things in the quiet little town will be anything but boring.

Liked it, but had a lot of unanswered questions at the end so I'm hoping there will be a sequel. Hence, only a 3 our of 5 stars rating. :(

Still don't know Lena's name. What's with the 17th moon? Does that mean she's going to get a year reprieve? Are Hunter, Larkin, and Sarafine really gone or not? Why did Lena's eyes change? Does it mean she is claimed by neither or both or undecided until the 17th moon? Is Ethan really only human? Why does he have power and how can Lena and he have had such a bond even before the two met? Why did everyone know they would? I originally thought Ethan and Lena would be the reincarnation of Ethan and Genevieve, but if they saw her ghost can that really be? I'm so confused. Also, could the spell used on Ethan have changed him? Could the two be bound in a way that they can be together now? Parts reminded me of Carrie (but less violent) and Firestarter(mainly because of the hair).
