Yara is beginning to understand just how much her life will change now that her Waker abilities have emerged. She has come to terms with the fact that seeing ghosts is part of her life, but she isn’t ready to let being a Waker dictate her choices. All she wants is a ghost-free senior year with her boyfriend, Brent, and her best friend, Cherie. But Yara soon discovers that ...more

Wow. This was – wow! I liked Intrinsical, but Indelible was SO good! I could not put this book down.

After spending the summer in Brazil with her Vovó, Yara is finally back home and reunited with Brent, Cherie and Steve. They are all hoping for a quiet senior year, a chance to get their grades in order and spend some time together, but things at Pendrell never work out quite like that. There’s a secret society determined to take advantage of Yara and Brent’s powers, an angry ghost found

First off, in the interests of full disclosure...



Well, a fictionalized representation of me, anyway!

Secondly, I was one of the beta readers for Indelible, so my review may be biased because of a) Lani's overall awesomeness and b) my efforts on behalf of this book.


A signed copy - I feel so speshul!

This is not so much a review as it is a mini-story. I can't in all honesty review this book with any amount of objectivity.

Indelible is even better than the first. It's fully of ghostly adventure and the discovery of new powers. I'm looking forward to the next book! There is so much to explore in this world and I have the feeling that I've only gotten a peek at what is to come.

Absolutely Amazing!! If you loved Intrinsical (The Yara Silva Trilogy,#1) you will LOVE Indelible (The Yara Silva Trilogy, #2). Ms. Woodland has hit a grand slam with Indelible. I will try to make this review as spoiler-free as possible. It will be difficult due to the fact that it was so good, I could just ramble on and on about it. So, here I go...

This book was awesome! I loved it! This second book is even better than the first if that is possible. I loved that this one started out with romance and it continued all the way through.It was nice to see that a relationship could be sustain nicely with all its ups and downs all the way through a story. Brent and Yara's love story is so sweet and they are so in love and perfect for each other. I think this is the first book I have read were it is constant through out.

I loved Intrinsical, but I LOVE Indelible! It seems that a lot of times, the second book in a trilogy doesn't hold interest as well as the first or the third. That's not the case with Indelible at all. I was captivated by the book from the first page. The mystery in this book kept me guessing until the very end, and that rarely happens to me. I also loved the romance in this book, and enjoyed seeing the relationship progress. This is a definite must read by a very talented author! I can't wait t ...more

I thought the story in Indelible was even better than the one in Instrinscial (and I loved that one). In this book, we learn that the world of those with supernatural abilities is much more complex and complicated than Yara Silva once believed. There's whole groups of people out there Yara had no idea about, and she is caught in the middle because she is a very talented and powerful Waker. And if that isn't enough, she soon finds out that what happened with her and her boyfriend Brent during the ...more

This review was originally posted on my blog, Mindful Musings.

In a Sentence: Indelible was an entertaining ghost story with plenty of action, but it didn't quite live up to its predecessor, Intrinsical.

My Thoughts

When I first read Intrinsical by Lani Woodland last year, I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't know what to expect because I hadn't heard a whole lot about the book, but I ended up really enjoying it. Naturally, when I was offered a chance to be on a blog tour for the sequel, Indeli

Let's be clear about one thing I wasn't a huge fan of Intrinsical but Indelible just blew me away. It's wasn't that I didn't enjoy Intrinsical but it didn't leave any lasting impression, though it was thrilling enough to make me want to read the next book. I am sure glad I did because otherwise I would have missed a very interesting and exciting read. Indelible had a number of things going for it.

Seriously, where do I start? This book was ... words like fantastic, amazing, wonderful, awesome ... they all come to mind but they just don't do it enough justice. Put them all together and you get this book. I am in love with the way the author writes.

My Review: (may include spoilers for those who haven't read Intrinsical)

Once again, Lani Woodland has not only drawn us in with a stunning book cover (I mean, look at it), but she has also created a story that is filled with romance and humor and mystery. Indelible is the second book in Ms. Woodland's wonderful Yara Silva Trilogy. It further tells of Yara and Brent and their growing love amidst the chaos of Yara's Waker abilities (she can see ghosts).

Yara is such a great character. In Intrinsica

I liked this book, although I think I like the themes in the first book a little better. This one has a lot more of what I expect from a ghosty YA book, but it did add a little more to it.

Can I give a book six stars?

Intrinsical was an incredible debut, full of chills, thrills, and a sweet romance. It could have been a stand alone book, but thankfully, it isn't. Lani has built upon the foundation she created in Intrinsical and taken the world of Yara and the Wakers to an all new level. Indelible avoids the "boy loses girl" formula so common in second books. As a result, the reader gets to enjoy Brent and Yara's relationship and watch it grow. The relationship is very real: they fi

If I say that I loved this book better than the first, that's saying a lot. Because I love her first book. I heard so much about her book and Lani was wonderful enough to send me a copy of her book. So when I was given the chance to read an ARC of her sequel I jumped onto the chance. And I was drawn in immediately. Lani wasted no time to bring on the action. By page 25, she had me gripping my reader and holding my breath. Her scenes are so descriptive it's almost impossible not to visualize, the ...more
Previously published on my blog:

I’d always had some conflicting emotions with Intrinsical (Indelible‘s prequel). For me, it had always felt too much like the clichéd paranormal romance that publishers kept on generating these years — though it was a bit unexpected in some areas, I admit.

Well, Indelible blew me away.

I love it when I enjoy a sequel more than the first! And that's saying a lot because I really liked Intrinsical. The cast of characters remains true to themselves and the storyline is fantastic.

I didn't think it was possible to like Yara any more than I already did. But, she's just a great all around character. She's still struggling with what she is. I think because her abilities appeared so suddenly, she really trying to escape what she was born to do. She tries to take the easy way out someti

This story picks up with Yara returning from spending some time away with her grandmother, Vovo, who I also love. She’s always there for Yara, and she guides her in understanding more about her calling as a Waker. Brent and Yara barely get the reunion they deserve before they’re thrust into another adventure, the action starting a thrill ride that doesn’t let up through the whole book. A nasty ghost, one that can actually hurt Yara, Sophia, has it in for them. And she’s part of the curse that su ...more

A few words to describe Indelible would be GREAT character developing and beautiful plotline. Indelible narrates the story of Yara coming in terms with her supernatural gift, her growing relationship with Brent and ancient curse that haunted Pendrell Academy. There’s a formula for sequels in YA literature but apparently Mrs. Woodland forgot that and this is the biggest compliment I can give to her. She took a risk and created her own sequel with fascinating turns in

I read the first book of The Yara Silva Trilogy - Intrinsical last year and was surprised at how good it was. I loved the way Lani Woodland executed the plot. Indelible, In my opinion, was not well executed. The air of mystery and danger, that I enjoyed in Intrinsical, was missing. It as more focused on Brent and Yara's relatioship. We get to meet Vovo, Yara's grandmother. She is a very powerful Waker and Yara has a lot to learn from her. Brent is still struggling with the events in the last boo ...more

I'm absolutely in love with this series. It's nice to see a levelheaded heroine who has the common sense to think her decisions through and to make hard choices. I think Yara is a good role model for YA readers: no boy-crazed-fashion-victim-gossipy-airheads here.
If I had a teenage kid, I would surely buy him/her this book as a birthday present (hint hint).

Second books are often tricky: if the romance has already been “solved” in the first one, how do you re-create some tension? If all the myster

Oh Lani you know how to win my heart over with your books. You always begin reading sequels worried that they won't live up to the first book in the trilogy. Then the second book begins and what a take-off. You completely forget about the quality of the first and begin judging the greatness of the second on its own level. Lani tells a story how I like, th

I liked this book, but loved Intrinsical much more. It made a wonderful sequel though. Lani did an amazing job with other characters apart from cherie (Yara's BFF), Steve (Cherie's Boyfriend), DJ (new intro), Vovo (Yara's Gramma). I loved every one of these characters just as much as I loved Yara and Brent. They all played important roles in their own way. The story wouldn't be the same without them.

Yara has more mysteries to deal with this time around of both the ghostly AND the earthly varieties. Number one ghost contender…Sophie Pendrell; this is one family that just won’t quit! Sophie has some unfinished business to attend to thanks to her husband as well as her own sense of duty to a promise made long ago, but will she let Yara help her? Eh, no. It seems she blames her for the mess that exists currently in conjunction with that promise and while it’s true, it is SOMEWHAT her fault…shou ...more

“I stopped at a red light, turned my head, and allowed myself to enjoy the handsomeness that was Brent.
He noticed my staring and asked, "What?"
"As if you don't know. You're not the type of guy that a girl gets tired of looking at."
"Oh. Well in that case, you're welcome to look all you want," he said and gestured to himself. "You're allowed to touch, too." He wiggled his eyebrows suggestively.
I lowered my voice into its sexy-husky range. "I was hoping you'd say that." With my flirtiest look on my face, I rubbed my hand slowly up his arm and then pinched him firmly on the shoulder.
"Ow!" Brent rubbed his shoulder and grinned. "Not what I had in mind!”
“Please be careful. Know that if something
happened to you, you wouldn’t be the only one hurt.”
