My name is Alexis Delaney, and I'm your average 17-year-old girl. Except I'm a Necromancer. Which means I can see the dead, talk to them, and help them move on. Well, I used to be able to. Someone has sealed the Veil. Now the dead are stuck here. And with the extra energy floating around town, the ghosts are getting stronger. It's been two months since I came to Spring Mountain to live with Uncle Rory. And the guys, my five best friends, have done everything they can to help since.

I loved reading these books, but listening to the audio takes them to another level! This series is magical and has some amazing world building. The narration captures each character as described.

For the first time, get all four books in the Alchemy series in one audiobook bundle. The series begins with The Keepers: Two days ago, Jo Davids was a waitress by night and a college kid by day, with the unnerving problem of objects floating around her. One day ago, Jo's sexy boss, Cormac, noticed her for all the wrong reasons when she witnessed a man transform into a monster in the basement of his casino. Today, Cormac ordered her shot. If he's real lucky, she won't die. Because if she does, all hope is lost.

I'm a little disappointed in the MC of this story. I felt that she was incredibly immature at times and made a lot of bad decisions. I listened to the full audio boxed set in Hope's that it would get better with each book, but there were some points where I cringed listening to this story. The premise of the story was entertaining and I liked majority of the other characters.

Summer Bright is just a name on a tombstone. A whispered mystery on the long-forgotten Woodbury Lane. Her ghost teases me with fear and perfection. She knows I'm not strong enough to do what I should've done years ago. The Bullets are united once more, bonded by their demand for blood. There's a vulnerability in their friendship though. Gavriel craves control. Blaise fears losing me. Ryker fights his guilt. Callum's moral compass will get us killed. Chesterbrook may be where the old me died, but it's also where I learned that hell isn't a place.

Sunshine. It's a nickname I haven't heard since I lived on Woodbury Lane, where the houses were pretty, but the secrets? Deadly. It was a pet name known only to the Bullets. Rough, violent, and ruthless, they laid claim to the town - and my heart. I wasn't supposed to fall for a boy from the wrong side of the tracks‚ especially not four of them. But they were the only ones who understood that sometimes hell hides in plain sight.

I have waited to dive into this story for a while and I'm so glad I took the leap. Sunshine is a flawed MC with a unique story. I loved how we got a glimpse of past and present to give a better explanation of the world in this story. The Bullets are an amazing, but flawed group of anti heroes and I absolutely loved them. The only thing that made this story better was the excellent narrator who truly captured each characters voice. This was amazing and everyone should stop what they are doing and listen in

How do you fight an enemy when they're inside your mind? A gargantuan glass-walled tower looms over a deadly wilderness. They say it's all that's left. The Tower's survival is humanity's survival, and each must serve it faithfully.... Twenty-year-old Liana Castell must be careful what she thinks. Her life is defined by the number on her wristband - a rating out of 10 awarded based on her usefulness and loyalty to the Tower, and monitored by a device in her skull. A device that reports forbidden thoughts.

this was an interesting story about Liana and her life in the tower. I wasnt sure since there have been books with a similar plot, this felt fresh and unique compared to others. the narrator did a great job capturing the different characters and making them feel unique.

This series was a rollercoaster ride and I'm sad to have reached the conclusion. Once again the book was well written, but in sad to say the ending left me wanting more. I dont believe the author wrapped up all the loose ends and there are some parts of the plot that I. left curious about. I hope the author writes another short story to close these gaps.

Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at worshiping, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules - but none of that matters anymore. The rules are changing. The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans. Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out - until she doesn’t, and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos.
