by Calix Leigh-Reign
Genre: YA Scifi/Fantasy

Summary from Goodreads:

Highly controversial debut novel by Cālix Leigh-Reign is taking the nation by storm! For those who've been craving an untapped damsel-in-distress-less Sci-Fi niche - Opaque delivers in this gripping page-turner involving mutated Limbal rings, biokenretic anomalies, mental dysfunction, perplexing Russian ancestry & romance. Cālix takes us on an adventure that begins when 16 year old misanthropic Adam Caspian unknowingly reaches biokenretic puberty, and his supernatural abilities awaken to save him from his murderous intentions. His every thought revolves around the extinction of the human race until mysterious Afro-Russian Carly Wit stumbles into his English class one morning. Adam notices something otherworldly about her immediately but denies the bio-synch taking place inside of him. As he resists their blossoming love, he battles with unnatural thoughts of his mother. Discovering his origin isn't what he'd thought, he becomes determined to peel back the layers of his lineage and unmasks a multitude of mind-bending secrets along the way

I love getting to read the first books in new series.  This book is a great start to a new serious. And I can't stress that enough.  This book gives us strong characters and a great story to start with.  I could not put this one down once I started reading it.  And those are the kinds of books that I love.  When you can't leave the world they put you in.

This book gives you so many different things.  You have the sci-fi aspect of things and you have the love side of things that can't be denied.  You get emotions, and they keep you reading.  If you can feel something from a book while you are reading then you know the book is a great one.

Calix has developed some great characters.  They are strong, well done and I kept picturing myself with them, as part of their world.  I wanted to be their friend.  I went to bed after reading the book, still stuck in the world, with the characters.  I just could not get my head out of the book that night.

I cannot recommend this book enough!!
