My Rating: 5/5
In 2015, a race of alien Others conquered Earth. They enslaved humanity not by force, but through an aggressive mind control that turned people into contented, unquestioning robots.
Except sixteen-year-old Althea isn’t content at all, and she doesn’t need the mysterious note inside her locket to tell her she’s Something Else. It also warns her to trust no one, so she hides the pieces that make her different, even though it means being alone.
Then she meets Lucas, everything changes.
Althea and Lucas are immune to the alien mind control, and together they search for the reason why. What they uncover is a stunning truth the Others never anticipated, one with the potential to free the brainwashed human race.
It’s not who they are that makes them special, but what.
And what they are is a threat. One the Others are determined to eliminate for good.

WOW! This book was hot and cold like Katy Perry's song!
I had no expectations of this book except that I really loved the book and was captivated by it (I am a cover person, I love book covers!)
The beginning of this book was really slow paced, some of the things Althea talked about went over my head, I had to read the passage a few times to make sure I understood it correctly. The pace zoomed off when enters Lucas who smells like Pine (anybody else smell pine right now?)
I really enjoyed the chemistry between Althea and Lucas and watching how their relationship developed. I liked how they both stood with one another in adversity. I am so so so so so thankful for the author not separating them at the moment! I really did dislike Deshi, I can't say he is my favourite character but I have a sense of Deshi becoming a significant character as the plot progresses!
Lucas and Althea remind me a lot of Elsa and Jack frost especially the way both of their eyes are blue but not in comparison to their powers!
I can't wait to read the next book!
