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.
Some scary scenes had me creeped out at night. I could pretty much picture the entire scenario in the abandoned hospital taking place..like a horror flick. Katy Cross knows exactly how to plan out the story. And she does it in a way where not only are you scared for the characters, but you’re scared because of the super creepy scenes she created. And you’re imagining it perfectly in your head and getting scared yourself!
I liked reading about the sisterly relationship. How close they were even if their situation was unique. Some say she might sound crazy. Having your dead twin sister talking in your head any time can probably do that to you. I also liked how Kady Cross made them both so different because no two twins are alike. The group of friends they also encounter ended up being their rock and I really liked how they worked together.
Definitely a fan of Kady Cross’ work and I’m looking forward to the second installment in this supernatural duology.
