Synopsis: Jesca Gershon-Sera has an average life on the surface. She is a sophmore in college, has a loving family, and holds a part time job at a local bookstore with her best friend. Her life is pretty normal. Except, under the surface she feels like she is losing her mind. Reoccurring nightmares have plagued Jesca for most of her childhood. She thought nothing of them, until they began intensifying and finding their way into her waking hours. Voices, vivid images and supernatural abilities in her nightmares are beginning to seep into her reality.

Ezra Kahn is one of her college professors. Lately, Ezra happens to be everywhere she is; like he is watching her. Along with the slight fear that her professor is stalking her, Jesca fears that she won't be able to handle much more of the insanity that is blurring her reality. On a chance encounter, Jesca confides in Ezra about the crazy happenings. Jesca thought that he would think her to be insane or a freak. But, to Jesca's surprise, Ezra Kahn reveals that she is not a lunatic and that all of the insanity is very real.

Instantly, Jesca's reality is set askew. Ezra reveals that he has been sent to help her. He tells her she is experiencing these events in her life because of her inherited purpose to protect humanity from inconceivable catastrophe.
 
I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did at all! I honestly didn't think that I was going to be able to follow it after reading the synopsis and also a few chapters but I soon found myself unable to put it down! I found the plot slightly confusing but once I started being able to follow it I loved it! It was completely original and it had so much potential! The characters were amazing! Jesca was the main character and I adored her! I loved how she acted and her attitude to what she had to do! I also connected with her the whole way through this book! I originally thought that Ezra was going to be the love interest of Jesca but I was completely wrong and I was very surprised with who he actually was! Nate was actually the love interest of Jesca and I loved him! He was perfect with Jesca even though he wasn't in this book as much as I would have liked! Xander was also sort of a love interest of Jesca and I did like him and also how he helped Jesca, Ezra and Nate but I am Team Nate! I hope that Jesca and Xander's relationship does develop a little more as well so that the love triangle between them and Nate heats up in the next book in  this series! I loved the book being told from all different point of views as well but it was mostly told from Jesca's point of view! The ending of the book leaves so much open as to what coud happen in the next book which I am looking forward to reading! I also love the cover! Big thank you to Venessa for providing me with a copy of Piercing the Fold and also for having me on her Blog Tour!
