Author; Rachel Vincent

Can it stand alone? Probably, but I would recommend you carry on with the series.
Description; She doesn’t see dead people, but...
She senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally.

Goodreads Average Rating; 3.97
My Star Rating; 4.75
Would I recommend it? Yes
Who would I recommend it to? Most people, but for specifics:Teenagers and those with a love of YA fiction. Lovers of the paranormal/supernatural genre who want to read about a new creature. Don't be fooled by the review quoted on the cover. This isn't only for Twilight fans.
Would I ever read more by this author? Most definitely!
Review; This book is easy to read, I got absorbed quickly. So far I have read this book twice in one year. Not once did I get bored. Now the quote on cover might put some of you off. Don't let it. This book is nothing like Twilight. This is coming from someone who is not fond of Twilight, but loves this series. Whether you're a Twilight fan or not, this book series is worth a read.
It was a fun read considering the subject. Class mates dropping dead? Surely that's not fun... but some how, Rachel Vincent made it a fun read. My sister was giving me funny looks because I couldn't stop smiling at some parts. A truly great fun read with some hidden depth. Well, it can't all be fun when it revolves around death now, can it?
The characters felt real to me. Their personalities weren't too far fetched. A lot of character's personalities are when it comes to books these days, but I liked the characters. Tod is one of my favourite characters. I love his character.
Overall this book is a great, fun, and easy read. It has great characters and an interesting plot. I have already read the second books once already, but I can't wait to dive back into it now. The review for the second book will be up as soon as I finish reading it, but I already know I'd recommend this series. A wonderful read for teens and adults who like teen fiction!
