Worlds Burn Through by Vicki Keire

Genre:  YA Paranormal Fantasy
Chronicles of Nowhere, Book 1

Description (taken from Goodreads):
Chloe Burke has nightmares of a world burned to ash and the strange boy who saves them both.

Underneath the dreams lurks a deeply buried reality; Chloe and a handful of others are survivors of a decade old apocalypse that burned their home world to the ground.

Now their ancient enemies hunt them again. To keep their adopted world safe, Chloe must undergo a ritual of blood sacrifice that will have life-long consequences if she survives. Her lethal protector, Eliot Gray, must keep her alive long enough to do it.

Together they will uncover even more dangerous secrets buried in the past’s deepest, darkest ashes.

Let me start off by saying that this book is a very short story.  And it has the potential to draw you in immediately.  There's paranormal, action, and definitely a lot of mystery.  But what did it lack?  Well, honestly nothing was explained.  You only saw glimmers of possibilities.  But there was never a whole picture to look at.

Chloe is your average teenager who just lost her dad and is rebelling against her mom.  Only we find out she's not really average.  According to my slim knowledge, she's possibly an alien from a destroyed planet.  And now she's being hunted by some fiery-looking dudes.  But she has Eliot to protect her and keep her safe.

Honestly, I was drawn in from the moment the book started.  But nothing was ever explained.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you need to read the second one with the first as if they were one book.  Hopefully things will be explained in the second book.  I am planning on reading it, so I'll let you know if it gets better...
