Rating: 4/5

In a world where everyone is gifted, be it in dancing, lightning-bringing, or death-giving, Ever is born... all-powerful. 

For this gift, she is kidnapped and trafficked at birth. Fifteen years later, Ever still hasn't seen even a glimmer of her powerful gift. Locked in an abandoned mall in New York City, she's fighting to survive her captivity, her brutal guards, and the other gifted kids in her cell. She would do anything to escaped. 

Fox is gifted with time manipulation. Like Ever, he hasn't come into his gift yet; like Ever, he hates the mall; and like Ever, he longs to be free. But there's one thing he values above his freedom- it's Ever's love...

... yet, when the two make a desperate attempt to escape, this attempt proves so dark and twisted that it just might destroy Ever's love for Fox.  

** Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review **

The synopsis for this book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! First we met Ever. Ever is 15 years old, and trapped in an abandoned mall in New York City. She was fearless, manipulative, and pure awesomeness. Later into the book, we discovered that Ever was blind, and that she used other people's eyes to see. Her eyes were two different colors. One a dark, dusty blue, and the other, a light blue. She was also gifted with the power of a heart, which was basically the deadliest talent of all. Being able to channel any feeling into any person anywhere in the world. But can Ever readlly do all that is expected of her? 

I really enjoyed the pace of this book. I mean, the events were all chronologically put together and flowed really well as one piece. The characters, on the other hand, not so much. Fox- the main protagonist's love interest- was quite annoying. Ever, on the other hand, made me smile and laugh. All of the characters were... different. Their personalities were vastly unalike. The romance was steamy and everything that you'd look for in a good YA romance.

Overall, I really enjoyed this read. There was action right from the beginning to the end, and it didn't disappoint me one bit. I usually don't read stand alones so often but when I find the time to, I cherish those moments. Into the Blind by Helen Rena was definitely a read to remember.

Helen Rena loves reading and writing novels. And short stories. And flash fiction. She has a Ph.D. in comparative Literature, and a vast collection of books and green bottles. She is still not sure why green bottles. She lives in Southern Oregon with her husband and two children.
