I never believed in ghosts. Until one tried to kill me.
When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that paranormal forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a dangerous spirit sent to kill her. The brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night.
Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay alive. Along with new Legion members Priest and Alara, the teens race to find the only weapon that might be able to destroy the demon — battling the deadly spirits he controls every step of the way.
This book read a lot like Supernatural, you know, the TV show with the ruggedly handsome Dean and his equally handsome brother, Sam? OMG, totally worth the read. But instead of Dean and Sam, you have Jared and Lukas, two totally handsome and swoon worthy guys. So with them and the ghosts and demons of this book, I definitely had to say, "yes please!".
Kennedy is a very strong individual who has taken on a lot since her father walked out on her and her mom, and then later, maybe 10 years, her mother dies. And, instead of going to the boarding school her aunt wants to send her to, she decides to go on the run once her life is threatened by a vengeance spirit. But she doesn't go alone, she goes with Jared and Lukas and gets caught up in their world.
This book is filled with excitement, horror, romance and just awesomeness! Garcia takes you on one heck of a thrill ride with this one and her writing technique is nothing short of amazing! I am always happy with whatever I read of hers and I can't wait for the next book to come out!
