Format: Paperback
'Reckoning' is a really interesting first book in a young adult paranormal/fantasy series. The book focuses on Kat Matheson, whose life has been plagued with the strange ability to see the dead for as long as she can remember. Only now, the visions are becoming more vivid, the voices more persistent, and the nightmares more real. On top of her increasing problems and fear for her soul, she must deal with the arrival of her mysterious and gorgeous new neighbor, which only serves to complicate her life further. Kat must figure out what her visions mean and what powers she actually wields before it's too late and the curse that controls her fate wins.

I found the description and concept of this book to be very interesting and unique. The story had a great mix of mystery, action, romance, and adventure. The writing was well done and flowed effortless with the plot being fast paced. The characters were intriguing and really likable - I could easily identify with Kat and her struggles and I liked the character of her best friend, Rachel too. I liked the unique history and story behind Kat's gift and her curse, as well as the paranormal world that the author creates. I think it added an unique aspect to the book and sets it apart from other YA paranormal books. This will be a fantastic series for fans of paranormal fiction and I'm excited to see how the story progresses in the next book.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Overview: Reckoning caught me off-guard. It's labelled as a paranormal story, so I wasn't prepared for how creepy certain scenes were. Along with the intense descriptions, I was completely blown away by this debut novel. I love horror and I love paranormal, so when the two mix together as seamlessly as they did in this novel...I'm in bliss. The author portrays what scares Kat so clearly that it gave ME goosebumps. I also liked how the narrative in the novel wasn't "dumbed down" simply because it was told from a teenage point of view. The music preferences of the characters do make the novel feel dated (late 90s), although when I went to high school those were exactly the bands I listened to, so I didn't mind.

Plot/Characters: Kat has visions of dead people and these visions are getting harder and harder to hide. Her mother tries to hook Kat up with the cute new neighbor, but he gives Kat the creeps. No, Kat rather fantasize about hooking up with Rick, who she's too terrified to talk to despite her huge crush. I really enjoyed Kat. Although she sees visions, she really does act and worry like the average teenager. She's concerned about buying a car, finding a boyfriend, and spending time with her best friend, Rachel. Rachel is a pretty kick-ass best friend. She's spunky and bubbly but not annoyingly so. Lovell is definitely a creepy neighbor, but I he has a very seductive side to him. He's like a younger and sexier version of Hannibal Lector- only he doesn't eat people. At least, I don't think he does. For those who don't see the sex-appeal of Hannibal, this comparison between the two guys might be lost.

Ending: I like the intensity of the ending. What I didn't like was how more questions were raised just as fast as my original questions were being answered.

Cover

Now THIS is an amazing cover! I love everything about it. It's dark, it's creepy, and I was beyond thrilled when I was given the chance to review it. It's like the cover was made just for me. There's a ghostly aura about it which fits the story line and totally sucked me in! Add some scary trees in the back and you've got one excited chick. And check out that dress... just wow, perfection.

Characters

Kat was such an awesome character. She's really someone to look up to. She's not easily persuaded and she tells it how it is. I didn't like how shy and awkward she was in the beginning due to a certain boy she'd been crushing on, but once the story picked up she totally redeemed herself. Her attitude towards Lovell cracked me up. After a while I was like please give this poor man a break already. And Rachel is just the greatest addition ever. I wish we all had a friend like her!

Story

I knew I was going to love this book from the very beginning. Kat sees ghosts... I'm in! I love a good ghost story and this one did not disappoint. For the first time EVER, I got a little creeped out while reading this book. Bravo Molly, that never happens! I have been waiting for the day when a book would come along that actually made me want to sleep with the lights on, and I have finally found it. I'm a cliffhanger fan so I was pretty content with the ending. I can't wait to read the next installment!

I really loved this book, it's that good that I finished it in a day, the writing flows and the story moves along quickly and has you eager to discover what the next page holds.

Kat has seen spirits all her life, but has learned to mostly keep the fact to herself after her parents sent her to a pychiatrist when she was younger after she used to talk about seeing them.

Kat spends a lot of her time with her best-friend Rachel while pining away for the school hottie Rick, when he finally asks her out to say she's over the moon is an understatement, when the house next door that's been empty for quite a while is suddenly occupied by Lovell a boy around her age, her Mum seems intent on setting them up, but there's something strange about Lovell and there seems to be something he's hiding.

But suddenly Kat seems to be seeing more spirits than usual, a girl dancing on the field at school, who may or may not be a good spirit and there seems to be a malovent presence following her around, and they're out to get her.

A great book and I'll be eagerly anticipating further books in this series,

I give this 4/5.
