I never believed in ghosts. Until one tried to kill me.
When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that paranormal forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a dangerous spirit sent to kill her. The brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night.
Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay alive. Along with new Legion members Priest and Alara, the teens race to find the only weapon that might be able to destroy the demon — battling the deadly spirits he controls every step of the way.
Suspense, romance, and the paranormal meet in this chilling urban fantasy, the first book in a new series from Kami Garcia, bestselling coauthor of the Beautiful Creatures novels.
I read Beautiful Creatures earlier this year and actually really enjoyed it. I had the opportunity to get an ARC of this book while at BEA, but I didn't go to the signing, right about now I am regretting not going. This book just looks awesome, and my friend Brad recently went to ALA this past weekend and got this book, and read it, and really liked it, making me super jealous and wanting it really bad. I am also a fan of the cover, it is very different and I love the graphics. I'm really excied to see how Garcia writes without Stohl as well, hopefully it will be very happily surprising. Can't wait for this one, I think it will be great!
