Touch me, and bring me to life...

How do you move on when you don't even know where you were going in the first place?

The Spirit Stalker is dead and I have finally started to erect my life. But I quickly discover, that just because the structure is built doesn't mean the foundation is sturdy. As much as I try to manage my abilities, I can't completely control them. The physical impossibility of the relationship I have with Justice has reached a boiling point; our fundamental problem, my inability to control myself from absorbing his power, and his fear of touching me because of it.

As if that wasn't deal-breaker enough, a new threat looms on my horizon - Darklings. They are grim reapers of the immortal world who surface every five-hundred-years to feed off the souls of magical beings who are weak, aimless, lost; those who have given up and want to move on.

They also hunt power. Which means, they're hunting me.

Abandoned by the one person I need the most, I find myself in Melenia's realm. There, I’m courted by Siberian, a dangerous pixie who covets me, hunted by Death personified; all the while hiding my powers and my ancient bloodline. The pixie prince is alluring, and I feel so broken and vulnerable. I know giving in to him means giving myself over to him. But right now, I don't care. All I want is to feel anything other than the loss and rejection Justice left me with. Anything other than pain.

So what do I do when I'm scared to be touched, even though I know it's the only way to bring my soul back to life?
I'm completely in love with this series! When I finished iFeel, I desperately wanted to start reading Gravitational Pull. I loved it that much. And after reading Gravitational Pull, I feel that same way about reading the third book, Constellation. There were so many times in this book that I thought my heart was going to break for Liv, and I was so angry with Justice. He was a complete coward in this book. If he hadn't run from what he was feeling, a lot of heartbreak could have been avoided for both himself and Liv. I am so intrigued by the presage's warning and Liv's feeling of deja vu when saying or hearing a certain line (readers will just have to read the book to find out what I'm talking about). I'm close to pulling my hair out I want to read the next book so badly. Marissa Carmel has done an amazing job creating a world and characters that just pull the reader in and not letting them go. Bravo!
