I enjoyed reading this book, it was easy to read and I liked the electricity between some of the main characters. I really like paranormal plots, but in this one I liked the other stuff especially. I think I would really like another book that would concentrate more on MadisonÃ?Â´s and IsaacÃ?Â´s relationship after this story. I gave the book 3,5 stars. Maybe I wouldÃ?Â´ve needed an explanation for the paranormal happenings or something for it to be 4 stars. But IÃ?Â´m not sure what was missing from it for me. Anyway it was an easy and enjoyable read with no annoying characters!show moreby Johanna Pulkkinen
My Summary: Madison doesn't like change. It hasn't been good for her in the past. Change took her boyfriend of two years away and change took away a good friend. Change is haunting her again with a weird death and lots of strange events. Maybe the new hotty in town can bring some good change for Madison. But even as she is inexplicably drawn to Isaac, her life is falling apart. Her best friend becomes delusional on the way from one period to the next. Can that happen? Madison becomes frustrated as the doctors can't find a reason or offer any relief. While searching for what's really wrong with her friend, Madison stumbles on a dark secret that could tear her world apart. A secret that Isaac knows a lot about. Will the secret destroy Madison or save the ones she loves? My Thoughts: 4 stars - a great read This book started with a zap and tugged me in quickly. I was immediately drawn to Isaac, just like Madison. Mystery hangs around him like a fog that clings to him. I loved that. Isaac is the perfect compliment to Madison. I enjoyed their relationship a lot. Their feeling for each other had a tangible aspect to them that was unique and exciting. The plot had me immediately trying to unravel the clues that were so expertly left among the pages. Where is Madison's mother? Why are animals being killed in strange ways? How can a perfectly healthy teenager leave one class and end up delusional in the next? All the clues were pointing to one person and I grabbed on to that. But alas, I was wrong. Love it when the author fools me. Even as I realized it couldn't be, I searched for another. I didn't figure it out until it was revealed. Looking back, I can see the clues were skillfully left but so were distractions that make it hard to focus on the real clues. The other thing that I really enjoyed about this book was that it is or can be stand alone. It seems that every book I read these days is a series. While I love them, it's nice to have a conclusion that doesn't leave me wanting to throw the book or crying for the next one. I could see a second book but there doesn't have to be. Very refreshing. If you love the paranormal reads, like I do, then for sure pick this one up because it's a great read.show moreby Valerie Fink
