Publisher's Summary

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. Things, for once, were almost normal; my issues with the dead had become routine. Until they all found girlfriends.

Now I'm back to hiding everything again. With ghosts leaving their haunting grounds at will and new people asking questions as I try to build my link to the Veil, I don't know how the hell I'm going to pull this one off. But it can't get that bad, right?

Fantastic

This book is beyond amazing. The writing is flawless, the storyline is well thought out, and the characters are so believable. The narrating couldn't have been better. I can hardly wait for the third book to come out on audio!! I've already read it and look forward to intending to it.

ooooh, when is the next book coming out?

I am really enjoying this series. I hate that there's not another book. I am an avid listener and dread the thought of missing the next book when I get involved in another series and have to remember to keep checking back.

Lexi needs to not forget her bracelets.

The audio performance is awesome!

If I hear “Sunshine” one more time. Also, girls don’t “Nut up”; that’s so crass. To me the story needs to focus more on Lexi fixing the veil, strengthening her power, and remembering to wear her protective charms ALL the time. To me, sickness as a plot device to have all the guys fawn all over her is just ugh. Leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Also, I don’t care how open minded you are, cuddling with five different guys is just not ok. Flipping pick a guy. Dylan’s behavior was understandable to a degree. I don’t think the author needed to ditch him in favor of love pentagon. I don’t know that I would continue series if it wasn’t in romance package.

Yes please, despite the heartbreak

So, I love this story so much and will admit that I agree this wasn’t my favorite for this series, however that’s only because my heart broke watching Lexi navigate through this “chapter in her life”. Watching her struggle through relationships and her powers! It was hard, I cried with Lexi, laughed with her and even got angry as shit for her!! This book was needed as it truly added the many layers needed to build up this story and characters even more. It was perfect. Plus... AWESOME NARRATOR

Even better than the last one!

Loved the book and the storyline is unbelievable. The narration was really good too. I still wish the guy was doing the guys speaking parts instead of just their POV but I'm used to it now.

another great book

part two keeps you on your toes as the plot thickens and the characters draw you deeper into the story.

One of the best audiobooks ever

This series is one of the best audios I have ever listened to. The narrator has a beautiful tone of voice which is full of expression and life, she reads fluidly and her voice is soothing to the ear. So good is the quality and voice that I get sucked right into the book, it's relaxing and exciting all at once. The male narrator at the end also has a great tone of voice and it is nice to get the guys perspective in a male voice

I have listened to this audio on more than one occasion and will be listening again in the future. The storyline is epic and one of the best written series I have read so far

If you want a great story with a fantastic audio then get this one as to be honest it does not really get any better than this

Ten stars if I could

YES, MORE PLEASE

Book 2

I love the long hours listening to the story. I so do not mind Book 3 and the author's future series to be over 10 hours long.

So Book 2 is a slow build with Lexi dealing with the veil, I personally like it because it leaves more story time with Lexi and all the boys.

Based from the summary we all know the boys have girlfriends now. (SPOILER ALLERT) So there lies the drama, it goes from one guy's girlfriend to the next. The drama was frustrating to listen not because the author or narrator did anything wrong. It was frustrating cos I wanted to punch some of the boys's girlfriend (I know it is just a book) and Lexi having to deal with the girls drama all on her own.

Although we know the books are majority based on Lexi's POV but at the near ending of both books, the author shows another POV from the guys. I like this kind of writing because it shows us more inside to what the boy(s) are thinking.

On top of that, Lexi also have to deal with the souls who are getting stronger. For a 17 year old girl having to deal with so many stuff and in Book 1 shows us Lexi had to be a grown up cos her mother can't take care of herself, so Lexi had to be the adult. Which makes her very mature for a 17 year old.

Anyway, I seriously hope Book 3 will be out ASAP please. I am looking forward to my next hit.

Lastly, I must show my appreciation to the narrators AMAZING JOB, made me so hook into the story.
