By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Mar. 2010
Format: Paperback
This was a fantastic start to a new series by Jacquelyn Wheeler. Ashlyn is a normal teenager, she has obviously had difficult relationships in her past but is determined to put that behind her & make a new start at college. She has the same insecurities that I'm sure most of us have experienced at some time in our lives and that makes her very easy to relate to. Life at college starts off as you'd expect and Ashlyn soon starts to make friends and settle in. I particularly like her roommate Rebecca who quickly became one of my favorite characters.

It isn't long before Ashlyn & Rebecca both notice that strange things are happening to them but this is soon explained when they find out they are Soterians. Having been called as Soterians they are developing strange powers that they are going to need in order to restore the balance between good and evil. I was expecting this to be a typical good versus evil story - one where the good guys always win - but I really loved the twist that Jacquelyn has put on the series. Evil can never be completely overcome, it can only be balanced out by good. Jacquelyn describes this using the yin and yang symbol - good can be on top but there will always be evil in the world. The Soterians are called on when the balance has been tipped the wrong way and evil is on top. Their task is to restore the balance but as soon as they have done this they will lose their powers.

I found this a really interesting concept - what must it be like to suddenly develop these amazing super powers and then lose them when the threat of evil is under control? It must also be difficult to be called upon to battle evil when you know that you'll never be able to win.
