“Savannah wanted to kiss him, but she had never even kissed a human guy before, let alone a ghost. How was she supposed to kiss him if he wasn’t really there?”
Savannah has never been in love before, but she’s in love with Hunter Emmerton. He’s cute, funny, charming ... and a ghost. How can you date someone if nobody else can see them?
When seventeen-year-old Savannah Fraser and her three friends are killed in a car accident, they are given a second chance at life by a group of century-old earthbound spirits who need their help.
Savannah learns she is a Chosen One, which means she can switch between human and spirit form, heal people, and control the weather—and she is also now invincible.
The Chosen Ones are the only ones who can defeat The Forces—a trio of evil half-spirits who are slowly destroying the perfect little town of Fort Everwick with violent storms and not-so-natural disasters—and stop them from harming everyone they care about.
The Forces are set on destroying everything Savannah knows and loves, but they also have a more sinister plan—they want a new member to join them. They won’t give up until they get the one they want—and they have Savannah firmly in their sights.
But what Savannah didn’t count on was falling in love with Hunter. She’s never loved anyone the way she loves Hunter, and she knows he loves her, too. But how can they be together forever if he no longer exists and she’s the only one who can see him?
Will Savannah have enough belief in herself to defeat The Forces, or will they be able to lure her to the dark side and turn her against her loved ones—and tear her and Hunter apart?
It’s a paranormal book. The main characters were believable, but what winds up happening isn’t so believable. It all comes out too perfect. Although, I did like the fact that I could read into the plot but not figure out the end. Sadly the end just felt very set up (can’t explain without spoilers sadly)!
Annabelle was my favorite although Hunter is a close second. I didn’t care for Gwen so much though, she seemed to have real attitude issues.
The end leads into a sequel for sure. Some questions were answered but the end left more questions unanswered for me. I don’t mind sequels but I want to feel compelled to read the next book and with so much left unanswered I’m not sure it really pulled together for me.
It moves and had a good story line but has multiple plots with a love connection and fight against forces… It wound up being too long, With it being so long I noticed myself getting bored. It was a really slow read. Definitely didn’t keep me up at night thinking about it.
Not one of my favorites. Not sure if I’m curious about book two yet as questions are lingering.
|Overall:||2.8 / 5|
