Hyalee Smith is dead. She just doesn’t know it yet.
Her short life was devoted to love and to hate. Love of the man who stole her heart, hate for the man who stole the world. Murdered by the government she swore to destroy, she has been given another chance to make it right. But to save the planet, she needs the help of the most powerful mystic the world has ever seen—unfortunately he hasn’t been born yet.
Dephon Johnson has committed the ultimate crime: inspiring hope.
His only goal is to make it safely through ninth grade, but on a post-apocalyptic Earth run by the Treptonian government, it isn’t that simple. Heir to a legendary power, Dephon Johnson is the only threat to the government’s rule. And on Trepton, all threats must be eliminated. When hundreds of assassins are dispatched to neutralize him, Dephon is forced to fight back. His only chance of survival is to enlist the aid of the greatest warrior the world has ever known. The only problem is, she's been dead for 13 years.
What to say about this book that hasn't already been said? How about, holy crap! Seriously, this was an awesome book that kept my attention and kept me turning the page long after I should have put the book down to actually try to get work done. I read this book in just a few days because of this. I was sucked in as soon as I finished the first paragraph.
Favorite character is definitely Hyalee. She isn't your normal one dimensional character and I loved that. She has depth and isn't your typical girl you have in many of the other novels around. Love her so much! I also loved how her and Singleton's relationship developed and bloomed just as Hyalee did. It was one of those books where I picked it up thinking how in the world was I going to get through it because it is pretty long but ended up loving every single word of the book.
The plot of the book moves fast so that makes up for the length of the book because you get into the book and forget how long it is. That to me is the sign of an awesome book. I am totally excited for the second book. Will be recommending this book to everyone!

About the Authors
Folami and Abeni Morris are a sister-sister writing team. Together they wrote (and rewrote) The Exemeus series, somehow managing to accomplish it without murdering one another. Despite their facial similarities, tendency to finish each other’s thoughts and stick up for each other constantly, no, they’re not twins and thus deserve their own individual bio.
Folami grew up in the tiny city of San Mateo Ca, where nothing ever happens and no one ever leaves. She went to Xavier University for undergraduate, getting her B.A in physics and her B.S in Biology. After graduation she returned to California, to live in an even smaller city, where even less happens, Antioch Ca. During this time she escaped the monotony by hanging out with her imaginary friends Hyalee and Dephon, and by writing the Exemeus.
She finally escaped to Queens NY and now realizes that quiet and tiny aren’t so bad.
As luck (and logic) would have it, Abeni grew up in the same tiny little town as her sister, then she too escaped to the tinier town of Antioch. She has yet to leave. She received her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from Cal State East Bay. She is the mom of two amazing kids, who swear that they deserve a percentage of the book proceeds and a ton of the credit. At least she raised dreamers.
