Teaser (from Goodreads):

If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I'm as far away from normal as it gets. A living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I was genetically altered by a sinister organization called the Edison Group. What does that mean? For starters, I'm a teenage necromancer whose powers are out of control; I raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever.

Now I'm running for my life with three of my supernatural friends—a charming sorcerer, a cynical werewolf, and a disgruntled witch—and we have to find someone who can help us before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.


Can I just say that book two was infinitely better than book one? And that's saying a lot...
But I can't give this one 10/10, and you know why? Because everyone - everyone - says that book three is even better, which means I have to give this one 9/10 so the other one can be a 10/10 if necessary. :D

Things kept getting worse and worse for our heroes and heroines and each time they were assaulted/attacked/got separated/whatever they barely made it ... Just to walk straight into another ambush.
And then, in the end everything turns out almost too good to be true. What am I to make of that??

No matter how much I usually despise werewolves I am unconditionally in love with Derek. Is he just the cutest thing, or what?? (I'm kinda glad he didn't hear me say that. He'd probably snap my neck.)

I am SO FREAKING EXCITED to see who Chloe ends up with. Simon? Derek? (Personally, I'm hoping for Derek. ;))


Frederikke, out.

  1. Drømmen er at skrive, men hvor jeg ender ved jeg ikke. Det må tiden vise.

    J, tell me about it! Jeg er tyve inden jeg er færdig med tredje g. på gymnasiet, hvis jeg derefter skal læse videre endnu tre-fire år og SÅ have min endelige uddannelse. Kan du stave til 'gammel'? :b

    Skotland lyder rigtig spændende. Vil du så afsted for at læse eller være barnepige?
