Shay could be the key to ending a war that humans don't know exist. Of a race of beings that aren't real, or are they?

Shay Tafford's childhood has been fatherless, filled instead with memories of speaking to the dead. She is forced to hide her unique ability from those living around her. That's why it's been comforting to have Jeremy, a child ghost, as her confidante. But recently he's been absent, perhaps lost as her father is. When Shay meets Hugh, the guy she's had a crush on for weeks, and finds he can speak to ghosts too she's just starting to find a normalcy in her life.

But as Hugh reveals the truth to Shay, about who she really is and about what it is she can do, he erases all chances she had at a normal existence. Turns out talking to ghosts is just scratching the surface of her genetically engineered gifts. Shay learns she may be part of an age old prophecy that could save the entire race of cryptids. But can she?

My Thoughts:

This was an interesting introduction. But my problems were that this book felt rushed. Then there was the instant love that bothered me, nothing really happened to make her want love him. There was no romance or anything must between each other other then that one similarity. I would want to say more about but I don't want to give out spoilers. What I did love was the idea of cryptids and how it ties to ghosts. I thought the characters were good but wished there was more to them. The story line was great and I think that this book is good for an introductory. Oh and with an ending like that I'll be sure to check out the next books to see what happens. See I'm going to rate this book 3.5 because I really liked the book so far but I wasn't in love with it. I hope to see more from this series in the next book.
