Read from July 25 to 26, 2011

The fact that Lenzi can hear voices is strange and disturbing. She thinks she is becoming schizophrenic like her father that ended up committing suicide a year ago, but the truth is even more unusual. She hears the voices of souls trapped on Earth. Her role as a “Seeker” is explained by Alden, a boy who claims to have known her through centuries of life times she can't seem to remember. I think Lenzi deals with this whole new world that opens up well, because she's pretty excited to hear she isn't mentally ill. Also, the way these 'ghosts' appear everywhere was haunting enough to make me read it during the daytime. The facts about her job and Alden's job as her “Protector” is explained well, which is good because it helps to understand it better when the climax hits. It's fast paced, with a hint of thrill, and if you do dare read it at night, keep the lights on.

Not quite four stars, *just* because it was pretty gushy at some times...not unbearable thankfully, just a little over the top...

Leah (Jane Speare) I did try it! It seemed silly, i really think werewolf stuff (the only exception is Fateful) is sort of silly, especially with the seriousness of rules and packs and stuff...

Rishelle Well its not their rules they r contolled by worlocks that say they r friends but they really r lying about alot of things.

How far did u read? Cuz it'll get past that

message 18: by Leah (new) - rated it 3 stars

Leah (Jane Speare) no i mean the general rules of werewolf books- the idea is nonsensical to me, i like more fantasy... Sorry...
