Insight & Embody by Jamie Magee

Book Description:
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

Book Description:
Not many Scorpio’s are known for their patience, and Willow Haywood is no different. Her only desire is to love Landen Chambers and redeem the lost souls of Esterious, but the path to that desire is long, dark and dangerous...
Before Willow’s life had a chance to balance the sudden revelations and grief she had to endure to get to Chara a disturbing discovery is made. A photo, one that shows Willow blissfully embracing the flawless image of Drake Blakeshire; giving her not only proof that she had lived before, but that she had loved him.
Running away from the memory of Drake’s hypnotizing touch, and the prophecy set before her seemed like the logical thing to do. That is, until a dark dream reignites her passion to save the hopeless dimension of Esterious. Willow struggles to find patience – to learn everything she needs to know before she faces Drake again, but her eagerness is dangerous and one step in the wrong direction takes everything and everyone away from her – the only way to survive this trial is for Willow to remember who she is and what she really wants out of this life. The question is….can she do that?

My Thoughts:

I loved these books. In Insight, Willow has always known she is different and has always had dreams and ways of helping people. She dreams of a blue eyed, wonderful guy and a dark, evil guy. Suddenly, she is told her life and all she knows isn't real and there is a whole new world that she has to learn and the boy of her dreams is a part of it....both boys! Now she has to choose and her choice will change the lives of everyone she knows.

In the sequel, Embody, Willow and Landen are again tested by Drake. This time, the test is different but no less life altering. Willow learns she has had past lives that she has done things she would rather not remember or know about, but then again, so has Landen. When they realize they aren't the only ones with extraordinary abilities and everyone can achieve certain heights. They will need all of them to stay on track and to stay together!

I absolutely fell in love with the characters in these books. Willow at times aggravated me with her naivety but at the same time, she is young and is actually wise beyond her years! Landen is a wonderful and intelligent character. The two kids are great. All the friends and family we meet are amazing and even Drake is a character you have to love! The author does an amazing job with the worlds that are created and the strand.

I rate both books 5/5. I can't wait for the next book in the series!
