Summary:

Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.

Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.


Review:

This book did not fail to disappoint me. I have to admit, At first I wasn't really attractive to it. Until I have decided to buy it because I've been hearing good things about this book and might as well try it, so Ta-da!

Violet is a teenage girl blessed with her unique ability to sensed dead bodies. It started with just animal bodies until when she was 8 yrs old, Together with her dad. She found a body of girl in the woods just behind their house. Years passed and now a Junior high She again found a body in the lake and so it happens again. Bodies buried in random places where no one would think it is. This happens continuously and parents are getting worried and so does Violets. Worried and scared at the same time. Violet decided to track down the murder/kidnapper herself using her ability.

While I was reading the book. I don't know whether I should hold my breath or scream. As I've been reading fantasy books lately and searching for a book like this. And happy to have found one.

Violet is strong and smart girl. Having her problem with Jay. And together with Jay. She will find the killer.

Jay....OMG... I can picture that he's so hot. I can't help but dream that I hope i have the same "best friend and Childhood friend" Like him.

I dont know what to be excited about. Is it Violet tracking down the murderer or Jay.

I cant say enough. But this book is good!

I didn't love this book as much as you did, but I did enjoy it. Jay is pretty great. I like that they were friends first and then it turned into more.
