"...He struck me as vain and self-absorbed, the kind of man I could never tolerate being around, let alone want-yet I did, I wanted him more than I had ever wanted anything. Wanted him the same way a desert longs for rain but doesn't need it, the same way the night is incomplete without the day yet never touches the sun."


Ember Sparks is a shy girl who loses her first love, Gage, abruptly- tragically. Incapable of coping with the reality of the loss, Ember's mind begins to play tricks on her- or so she thinks. Haunted by the memories, she leaves the town that was home to her and her high school sweetheart behind, headed for college with a desire to reinvent herself and reconstruct her shattered life. Soon after moving to Damascus, VA. she begins having clairvoyant nightmares, that lead her into a new world, a new way of life. Ember discovers that boundaries collide between ordinary and extraordinary worlds. It is in this new town she stumbles upon the clan she needs to help her face her demons, find her inner strength, and even find love again. She lost him. She lost herself. And that is how she found everything...

That's a good way to keep her from moping around. 
                              What does "curtains pulled to" mean? It seems like you mean they're closed, but I'm not quite sure.
Thank you! Stay tuned there’s lots more creatures and twists to come.
This sounds awful, I can see why this accident affected Ember so much

I knew this was coming the second you mentioned how wet it was outside, but this still very effective thanks to your amazing descriptions. I do have one small nitpick though. The word "tapping" took me out of the moment a little because it doesn't match the intensity of the rest of the paragraph.
Omg the summary was so good, it pulled me in right away and the premise sounds so interesting. I can't write a summary for the life of me teach me girl😩😂😂
I love Florida 😩 and awe you shouldn't think you can't be fixed, I believe in you😂
