The Tide Breaker by Sonya Watson
When it is discovered that Abrianna, an Amalgam, survived
the mass cleansing orchestrated by Destiny, her life becomes less then desirable since her only options are to be controlled or die.
Abrianna is a weapon. She is stuck between the Guardians and the Primes. She is also confused and torn between her feelings for Michael and Graham, and eventually Jonathan as well.
Abrianna has also lost her mother. Michael has always been her shoulder to lean on and supporter. But in the opening pages we meet Graham. Graham becomes an instant divide between Michael and Abrianna. She has such an instant and strong attraction to Graham that there is a soul-mate feeling between the two.
This story will hit you with a lot of information right in the opening of the book. We learn we are on the cusp of a war between the Guardians and the Primes and Abrianna is the weapon that both sides are seeking to win the war.
Michael's father is also the Sheriff and pretty much wants Abrianna dead. So Michael's feelings are torn between his father and his love for Abrainna. The one thing that he has on his side is that Abrianna and he have been in a relationship already for so long. But when Graham steps into the picture, it's like Abrianna has no second thoughts about Michael and follows her heart/desire for Graham.
Besides the fact that a lot of information is given right at the beginning of the novel. We also learn that Graham can communicate with Abrianna telepathically. Which can get confusing at times because when they are comminicating she is also having real-life conversations as well.
Once you get into the story and get the basics of who is on which side and who the Guardians and Primes are you'll get a very fast paced high fantasy novel that is unlike anything I've ever read before.
Right now the author is offering 60% copy of the book on smashwords. If your intersted in a copy send me a quick email for the code, or leave me a comment with a way to contact you.

"Abrianna held her mother's heart in her hands. She snuggled with the cold empty shell while she cradled the dead organ against her chest as if it were a child. The crimson liquid that pooled on the cold wooden floor soaked through the orphan's dark brown curly locks. The light that had once blossomed in her was now shrouded in darkness."
