Grasping at Eternity

Published May 25th 2012 by Starry Sky Publishing
Leave it to Maryah Woodsen to break the one rule that will screw up eternity: Never erase your memories.
Before entering this life, Maryah did the unthinkable—she erased. Now, at seventeen years old, she’s clueless that her new adoptive family has known her for centuries, that they are perpetually reincarnated souls, and that they have supernatural abilities. Oh, and she's supposed to love (not despise) Nathan, the green-eyed daredevil who saved her life.
Nathan is convinced his family’s plan to spark Maryah's memory is hopeless, but his love for her is undying. After spending (and remembering) so many lifetimes together, being around an empty version of his soulmate is heart shattering. He hates acting like a stalker, but has no choice because the evil outcast who murdered Maryah in their last lifetime is still after her.
While Maryah’s hunter inches closer, she and Nathan make assumptions and hide secrets that rip them further apart. Maryah has to believe in the magic within her, Nathan must have faith in the power of their love, and both need to grasp onto the truth before they lose each other forever—and discover just how lonely eternity can be.
Karen is also the author of Tangled Tides, my very favorite book of 2011--yes, I said VERY favorite, as in ahead of Divergent. It's really THAT good! I even bought a copy for my father-in-law and made him read it. He liked it! So, it isn't hard to imagine how I drooled for a copy of Grasping at Eternity.
It's every bit as wonderful as Tangled Tides. Karen is a FANTASTIC writer, and I am an over-the-top fan-girl. Oh, how I love her books!! And you will too. I promise. My advice to you today is this: race to Amazon, or B&N or somewhere--anywhere--and get yourself a copy TODAY. Then drop everything and start reading. That's what I did.
