"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 loses her first love, Gage, abruptly- tragically. Incapable of coping with the reality of the loss, her 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. 

After moving to Damascus, 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...

It's great how you show the characters mood so effectively, with aid of the pathetic fallacy! Nice!

Wow! Tragedy in the prologue! I love it. Your writing is really good and I enjoy the way you describe, it really paints an image in my mind. I feel this is going to be a good story.

                              This scene made me giggle–I adore the imagery of the plaid shirt and suspenders. I'd change "choking me on my sip of soda" to "the sight causing me to choke on.."... because as it reads, the shirt and suspenders are actually physically choking her XD

                              God, such great description in the above two paragraphs. I agree with @jagermeanshunter to simplify the action, but I do love the physical description of the pain. To give it a little more oomph, consider the word "pierced" rather than "traveled".
Ah he’s a physical sexual and she’s a mental sexual. #psych100 coming in handy
I like their dynamic so far. Their actions are showing me exactly what their relationship is like.
