If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I'm as far away from normal as it gets. A living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I was genetically altered by a sinister organization called the Edison Group. What does that mean? For starters, I'm a teenage necromancer whose powers are out of control; I raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever.

Now I'm running for my life with three of my supernatural friends—a charming sorcerer, a cynical werewolf, and a disgruntled witch—and we have to find someone who can help us before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Geli | 2/15/2014

    " I'm really starting to love this series. Although it can be slow at times it not boring. But like the first book, they leave you hanging wanting more! The writing is great and for a teen novel isnt at all preachy. And with all the other supernatural books other currently this one is very refreshing and different. "

    " This book was my favorite in the series, not only do you learn more about the supernatural world but you learn more about Chloe and her friends. Tori's personality is explained and altered little by little, Chloe and Simon become closer. But I think Derek went through the most character development and bonding (other than Chloe) in this book. "

    " I liked this book so much I read it in two days. It was so good I couldn't put it down. I just read all weekend. This book put me on the edge of my seat while I read it. I cannot wait to get the next/last book to the series, "The Reckoning" "
