Heart-Shaped Emblor by Alaina Ewing

The Heart-Shaped EmblorBook Description:
For Aislinn Moore, attending college at seventeen isn’t a big deal. Not when compared to the difficulties associated with seeing ethereal beings and having prophetic dreams.

As Aislinn learns to surmount the obstacles of her talents, she awakens something inside herself—an ancient memory, long forgotten. She senses there are reasons for her gifts, but remains unable to understand them.

When Alexander Welch enters her life, she learns of the Ewlishash—the hope bringers—and thinks she may have found her answer. Alexander is sexy, sweet, and his talents are like something straight out of a Sci-Fi flick. Aislinn wonders if she may be like him, but the more she tries to fit his mold, the more her instincts scream that her destiny holds something even greater.

My Thoughts:
Good book!  Aislinn is seventeen and taking college courses.  She is also dating a guy that annoys her but she sees something in him that no one else does, especially her friends!  She has dreams of a dark haired guy whom she has dreamed of for years, but he is just a dream, right?  Oh and she can see ghosts, touching things can make her relive someone else's past event and her dreams can show her the past or the future.  As things progress, she learns more about her talents and that dreams may be a reality after all!
I enjoyed this story.  Aislinn was a good character.  She was beyond her years at times and a typical teenager that you want to smack at times.  Overall though, I liked her.  Alexander was the same way.  He had his issues at times and moments where you just loved him.  The author worked them as perfectly realistic characters.  I loved Hope.  She was the beaming light in the story to me.  All of Aislinn's friends were interesting and had their own role but Hope was original.  I can't say that I liked Aislinn's boyfriend or her other friend very much but that is how the author meant it to be as well.  The story line was original and flowed quite well.
I rate this a 4/5.  I want to read the next book and see where the author takes this!
