Summary from Goodreads
Before that fateful summer night, Willow had balanced the insight of emotion, and the vivid images. That night, the figure in her nightmare marked her wrist with a star, giving her father no choice but to tell Willow a family secret that would abruptly change life, as she knew it, forever. Before Willow had time to absorb the shock of her father's secret, her soul mate that had shared every stunning dream with her, found her, and darkness captured her closest friends. In order to save them, she must weave through broken myths and the undeniable power of the Zodiac. In the end, Willow discovers that at the moment of our birth we are all given a divine gift.
There is so much I want to say about this book. Like how beautifully it is written. How the descriptions are so extraordinary that you can see what is described perfectly. How you want the characters to be your family because they are so amazing. If I knew you had read this book I would love to discuss with you the depth of the love that Willow and Landen share. Or how amazing and loyal Willow is when it comes to her friends. Or how I don't think Drake is as evil as you first think he is, because really aren't there usually shades of gray to the darkness. However, I don't know if you've read this book and I would hate to give anything away because most of the fun of this story is discovering what's going on each step of the way. If you enjoy reading fantasy, adventure, and love stories that make your heart melt, then read Insight and get back to me so we can talk about how awesome it would be to live in Chara.
