Loved it! Christie M. Stenzel has created a complex paranormal world and seamlessly integrated this belief system into the modern world of teenagers. As Remy's story unfolds there's a good balance between the intrigue of her coming to grips with her paranormal heritage and her very human girl reactions to the usual teenage issues of normal life. Book one concludes with a spectacular and unpredictable ending - ah so many possibilities for the future books in this series! I'd love to see the Occuli books translated into a TV series or onto the big screen.

Have you ever received shocking news that turned your life upside down? Would you love to have magical powers based upon the color of your eyes?
Imagine the shock of being eighteen year old Remy Verbetta and finding out that you are not 'human' and also are not from this 'world'.
Remy’s life is turned upside down when she suddenly finds out her entire life has been a lie. Another 'world' is living and breathing along side our own, a kind of alternate dimension.
On her eighteenth birthday, Remy finds out that she is not 'human', but is actually a member of an ancient and almost extinct race called the Occuli. Each Occuli has different magical powers based solely on their eye color.
This captivating, multiple award-winning, supernatural fantasy novel, follows Remy on a journey of self discovery, magic, mystery, romance and betrayal, as she tries to figure out a way not only to survive, but also find a way back to her true home and save the Occuli from extinction!
(Recommended for ages 16+)
