I do recommend this story.
In a coma, he speaks to her, seeming to wake up, but he doesn't. Eerily this happens again with old man Grimshaw not long after, and he repeats the same strange event. Spooked, the sisters don't know what to do, but Joe the ghost is certainly friendly and fun. And explaining how they suddenly have tattoos to their parents is a hurdle they don't want to jump, especially as they can't explain how it happened.
Then life throws them in the deep end, they're off to London for work experience and instead discover their destiny while losing Josiah (the ghost). This is an epic adventure which I could not stop reading. Literally from page 2 I was in this hook line and sinker. I loved the bad guys, the graveyard antics, the talking dead, the superpowers of the kick-a** ninja chicks, and the rite of initiation the sisters go through.
This book is packed with twists, emotion, adventure, and some cute guys. There's no escaping your destiny, the Morgan sisters find this out the hard way while trying to save Joe, the ghost they feel responsible for. Paranormal adventure has never felt so real and authentic. This could be happening right now and you would accept it because this urban fantasy is that realistic.
A definite 5 out of 5 stars from me.
However, once the girls went to London and we learned of the whole Praxos foundation and their destiny, I found my attention slipping. This was where I felt the plot came undone slightly and a few elements wound their way into the story that I was considerably less interested in. I liked some of the powers that the teenagers displayed, and I felt that the two main characters were developed quite nicely. However, there were also lots of plotlines that I felt were under-developed. The love stories for both main characters were weak. I know what teenagers are like – ‘love’ happens quickly, but for me, the way the girls conducted their romances was unrealistic. Teens are nervous, shy and uncomfortable around the opposite sex, especially if they’ve been living on a remote island all their lives. But these girls were confident and jumped immediately from minor attraction to kissing!
I also felt that certain characters were thrown in without a great deal of development – the lycanthropes for example. I understand that this is a series and so these characters will be developed more fully in later books, so I can’t blame the author for that. I just felt as an individual book, there were a lot of loose ends left unexplored.
Despite those criticisms, however, I read the book very quickly and I did enjoy it. I will probably read the next books in the series at some point too, as I liked the author’s style and found her work accessible and enjoyable.
Hope you'll enjoy!!xox
