On My Wishlist this week:
Publication Date: March 16, 2010
Violet Ambrose is grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her "power" to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she was a little girl, she has felt the echoes the dead leave behind in the world . . . and the imprints that attach to their killers.
Violet has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just led her to find dead birds her cat left for her. But now that a serial killer is terrorizing her small town, and the echoes of the local girls he's claimed haunt her daily, Violet realizes she might be the only person who can stop him.
Despite his fierce protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved by her hope that Jay's intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she's falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering a killer . . . and becoming his prey herself.
I chose to do this book for my On My Wishlist this week to honour the fact that the second book in the series, Desires of the Dead, comes out for release on February 15, 2011. I added this to my TBR pile back in November when I first heard about it. I haven’t read any ghost-type stories and this one really intrigues me. That and the fact that the sequel is getting a lot of attention tell me it’s a pretty good book. At least people around the blogosphere think so, and I believe them. Plus, that cover is really amazing, in my opinion. I can’t wait to get my hands on this and see if I like it as much as the rest of the bloggers out there!
