So... kind of like a young Ghost Whisperer, but with a spunky little twelve year old instead of Jennifer Love Hewitt. Score!


What I absolutely loved the most was the traditional paranormal aspect of the book, which deals a lot with ghosts. I loved the way Noel treated them in a traditional way, rather than changing the characteristics of the paranormal groups like so many other authors have changed the aspects of vampirism, for example. I'm a huge fan of ghosts/ghost hunting, etc., so I was glad to see them presented accurately in this novel.

I'm giving Radiance four stars instead of five because I felt like it was very short and was more of an introduction to the rest of the Riley Bloom series. It didn't have a very in-depth plot. Still, if you've read and enjoyed the Immortals series, I highly recommend this book.
