Goodreads Synopsis 

Neve Knightly lives in an ordinary world. Where déjà vu is nothing more than a mind-trick. Where premonitions are dismissed as mere coincidence. Where no one thinks twice about the glitches in their reality.

Neve Knightly is living a lie.

But when her nightmare of a tragedy comes true the very next day, she can no longer seek solace in self-deception. The glossy enamel has been shattered, and she has caught a glimpse of what slithers just beneath the surface.

She now has the opportunity to decipher the enigma that’s been haunting her since childhood. But her quest soon becomes deeply entangled with the last two people she could have ever imagined: the love of her life, Dylan, who mysteriously vanished three years ago, and his estranged best friend, Romer, who seems to be guarding a secret of his own.

Romance, rancor, and redemption plummet as priorities, as their lives become riddled with peculiar happenings lying just outside the realm of science. And in search for salvation, they emerge at the brink of unveiling the best-kept secret in human history.

My Take 

From the synopsis alone, I knew I was going to like this book, it sounded so interesting and it.did.not.disappoint. The characters are well presented and brought to life to us in such away I found myself loving them a bit too much! 

Neve’s humour and strong, witty character had me laughing and applauding her. There’s so much development of her character in the story and I.loved.it. The relationship between Neve, Dylan and Romer is much better explained, and I definitely foresee a love triangle in the second book. Can’t wait! 

World building is great with with great written prose. I did find it hard to get into the plot at first but after a while, I think the third chapter, it flowed beautiful, with quite a few  plot twists. The Fray Theory in itself is a very interesting and intriguing concept that made me understand the book even better. 

Badass characters within a great story, I highly recommend picking up this book.
