Alex Manning is “The One”, well actually Alex Manning is a nice guy, with anxiety attacks who has visions. He dosent know he is “The One” until he gets wrapped up in the investigation of the Jamiesonn house. Then he is drawn neck deep into betrayal, battling demons, freaky scary ghosts, and falling in love again tossed in for good measure...

A good read for teen readers because it has the elements of one of those hand held computer games--lot of action and things happen very quickly.

My god, I rarely come across a book that I can't bare to continue reading. This one is unfortunately one of them. I don't know what they give out awards for in other countries but this book, right up until I stopped reading at page 52, felt like I was stuck in the worst bumper to bumper traffic on rt 4 trying to cross over to the GWB on a Saturday night. There was so much stop and go in the grammar and structure of this book I thought I was going to get whiplash. In general I'm not a fan of the ...more
