In 1863, a young woman's heritage is stolen from her, and she lays a terrible curse on the City of Angels. Now, in the 21st century, a teenaged girl with lethal psychic abilities arrives in Los Angeles, ready to ally herself with vengeful spirits of the past to feed her insatiable appetite for destruction. Only Gwen Michaelson, a natural healer afraid of her gifts, and Sam West, a broken amnesiac who was once a brilliant historian, stand against the psychotic and increasingly powerful May Blanco.

If the story weren't so engrossing, I would have returned this book. I kept finding myself thinking, "No one actually talks this way!!" Kudos to anyone pursuing their passion in a career choice, but I would have preferred a narrator who read in a tempo and rhythm consistent with a conversation instead of seeming forced and affected.
