Synopsis: Wren Noble is dead—she was born that way. Vibrant, unlike other dead things, she craves those rare moments when her twin sister allows her to step inside her body and experience the world of the living.
Lark Noble is alive but often feels she belongs in the muted Shadow Lands—the realm of the dead. Known as the crazy girl who talks to her dead sister, she doesn't exactly fit in with the living, though a recent suicide attempt and time in a psych ward have proved to her she's not ready to join her sister in the afterlife.
Now the guy who saved Lark's life needs her to repay the favor. He and his friends have been marked for death by the malevolent spirit of a vicious and long-dead serial killer, and the twins—who should know better than to mess with the dead—may be their only hope of staying alive.
Let me start by saying that I love Kady Cross and was really looking forward to reading this new book from her. So when the chance came to receive an ARC in exchange for a review, I jumped on it. While I didn't enjoy it as much as her Steampunk Chronicles, I still enjoyed the story that was to be told.
The characters that she created were interesting in their own ways and I have to say that my favorite was Wren, who is the ghost twin. What was really interesting was that she made the story much more enjoyable for me when she took part in how things would turn out. There was a lot to the plot which with being a fast read made things feel a bit rushed on the other hand. I wanted to know more about Lark and Wren and why they can communicate like they do.
I have a lot more questions that I want answered but as it is a standalone novel, I feel a bit let down. Overall though it was a likeable book with paranormal, romance and I think a little underlying mystery thrown in made it good. I wish more had been explained than what was and the ending left me wanting more. Hoping there may be a sequel in the future.
