Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

I love paranormal novels. This one is right up there with the best if this excerpt is any indication of the final product.

Amazon.com Review

Overall this is a wonderful example of a Young Adult Speculative Fiction novel and I would be very anxious to read more of it. It brings to mind the style of Kelley Armstrong or Richelle Mead.

The prologue was interesting but I felt it didn't really fit with the chapter one. I think chapter one could've started the book. But I got a bit bogged down with the lengthy info-dump at the beginning of chapter one. I really just wanted to get into the story and learn all the character information as I read. It's an interesting concept and I'm sure all it needs is a good editor.

I enjoyed this excerpt thoroughly, the author goes into great detail describing Northbrook so I have a clear picture of it in my mind. I'm already wondering where the story will go, and if Lainey's fascination with antiques is related to her gift, which I'm sure will be revealed in time.

My only sticking point on this one was that the scholarship had never been heard of before. It seemed a little strange, considering how detailed the setup was for the trust fund, to suddenly have a scholarship pop up into the equation. Hopefully the mystery of this and why it was not revealed to Lainey and Aunt Tessa earlier on will be revealed later in the story.

The concept of a protagonist who is able to touch antiques and determine how people died was fascinating. However, the pace of the excerpt became bogged down by uneccesary info dumping. I also believe that yadults will be able to identify with the main character. Some judicious editing would improve this piece. I wanted to read more and this author has created an engaging world.

This is a book that you won't be able to put down- very well written and interesting.
Also, I think that the theme will interest both young and "old" adults :)
I am looking forward to reading more!

I was hooked from the get go. Lainey's character is complex, deep and yet entertaining all at the same time. I'm sure that this novel will do well.
