Goodreads Synopsis:

Love, fate, and power collide in this new series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike!

Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told. Tavia will soon discover that she’s an Earthbound—someone with the ability to create matter out of nothing—and that she alone holds the key to stopping the Reduciata, an evil society that manipulates global events for its own shadowy purposes. Tavia will ultimately have to make a choice: to come into her powers and save the world from the evil Reduciata or to choose free will and a love of her own.
My Thoughts:
Earthbound is a carefully crafted mystery with a unique supernatural edge. I really enjoyed this book. Tavia’s journey is a long and confusing one. She thinks that her brain has finally given up and she is going crazy. Seeing weird flickering triangles and gorgeous men from 200 years ago. But Tavia doesn't realize that all of the strange situations are pieces of a giant puzzle that is her life. No one is who she thought they were and nothing will ever be the same. Tavia and Benson are on the run and looking for answers but will these be the answers that Tavia really wants?

I loved this book. The characters are great and April is able to construct and weave a carefully crafted web of mystery. You will not want to put the book down until you are done and even then you are going to want more.
