Two young lovers must hide their deepest abilities, while fighting to remain together in a society determined to pull them apart.

Within the Kingdom, the royal family can legally display any paranormal talents they choose. But commoners revealing even the slightest of powers face arrest and execution.

Anson is one of the few surviving telepaths living in secrecy among the population. However, an unusually powerful, rebellious young princess finds herself irresistibly drawn to the commoner youth. Defying all convention, Anson and Lydia quickly form a close, illicit bond.

Managing to remain one step ahead of the King's empowered operatives, Anson and Lydia make plans to escape the Kingdom entirely. But once the monarch announces Lydia is to marry another royal telepath against her will, Anson and Lydia must immediately battle for their own future, reshaping their entire society in the process.

I really liked this book. The story drew me in, and I finished it without stopping to do anything else. I liked the glimpses we got of Anson’s life. From snippets of his childhood and learning to use his powers, to being in the royal army. I liked Lydia as well. And the characters you aren’t supposed to like, pulled that off believably.

I liked the various magic powers introduced, and how they came into the general populace. I was not expecting the ending at all, which is always something that makes me happy! My one real issue, besides that the book was too short and I wanted to read more! Was that they seemed to almost come full circle. They escaped yes, but was their life really all that much better?
