I wanted SO much more for the ending. It’d be great to make a movie based on this story but with a much better ending- this could have been a highly successful, mind blowing multi-book series if the time would have been put into it. The first 90% is really good, good enough to read/listen to despite the short comings of the ending. But it could have been an amazing book had more thought and care been put into the end.
If you are reading this, just buy the book and get started. You won't regret it.
The first 90% of the book is 5 stars all of the way. Characters amazing, unique take on half life/undead/ghost/death, the plot is riveting and energizing and the pace is superb!
The last 10% of the book left me feeling that the author got up and let his 14 year old finish it or that he went off in left field, teleported 2 counties over and then aliens picked him up so he could take the ending over to the next galaxy. Everything changed, the pace, the feel, the protagonist, everything changed and slid down.
I was left angry because Tufo had given me something so magical and tore it away from me and taunted me with the ending that will never be.

It is not the usual Tufo glory, but it is very well written.
Beautiful in places, brutal in others, but most of all it is a total mind fornication.
I genuinely don’t know if I love it or hate it. I cannot decide. Maybe after a few days I will work through my feelings and come down on one side or the other. For now though I will sit here and slowly rock... humming to myself.... whilst stroking my cat...
If you read Mark Tufo you will know who Mick Talbot is, if not it doesn't really matter.
Anyone for those in the know this is the another dimension of what happened in the car accident that pops up in the cross overs (I love those interconnecting all the books together like the mention of a cat called Winter (Winter raising) or the other cat patches that I love that's pack mates with riley. Plus Durgan, man I hate that character he is such a douche bag but a credit to Tufo an his writing style).
Anyway Mick is in a serious car accident that leaves him blind in one eye sort of as he can now see the spirit world also all the pigment in the "blind eye" is gone. He was quite popular at school but after the accident he was stunned by nearly everyone except Jandilyn. They fall in love and live happily ever after. Yeah right this is a Mark Tufo novel. So yes something bad happens why Tufo why? and this ends up a completely different kind of story as it starts as a love story and tells into a horror.
I loved this book and unlike most of Tufo's books this is a stand alone novel like Callis Rose.
Edit: Upon re-reading this book I have a deeper love for it and for that I decided to increase my rating from 4 to 5 stars.
I found though despite all this; the book in places it seemed to sag, especially in the closing pages where it seemed rushed and not as well thought out as the previous chapters that had kept me enthralled up to that point; which is highly unusual for a author who has turned out some gripping and rather stomach churning books, this may be due to the fact that it was for him unfamiliar territory (which he himself admitted on a social networking forum) being more supernatural and semi psychological as opposed to the biological horror that made him a rising name in horror fiction.
All in all, this was a good first foray into the supernatural and psychological realm despite the flaws and something that I am extremely happy to recommended to any one who is an avid reader of this genre or Mr Tufo's work in general.
However, this was just amazing!
Mark Tufo has a true talent; he is able to weave a complex story bringing in all sorts of emotional,physical, reality and spooky elements.
You feel yourself sweating away with the characters in their struggles and dont get me started on the tears.... thankfully no cats were killed in this one!!
All ends are neatly tied up in the final climax, which is great... I do so hate reading a book that finishes ambiguously!
All fans of MT want be disappointed with this.
