The story and characters in this novel remind me strongly of Japanese manga and anime series - a perky, somewhat silly female lead who is inexplicably the only one who can save the world from vague, dark threat; the inverted harem of gorgeous boys who fawn over said character; convenient opportunities for romantic setups (no parental authority, permissive uncle who allows a teeenage girl to spend unlimited amount of time, including sleep overs, with a group of teenage boys), yet everything remains relatively innocent and childlike between all the main characters. The psychic plot is barely developed and most of the narration is dedicated to describe every single aspect of each gorgeous character, the clothes they wear, and cute funny interactions among them. If you want very light reading to pass the time, or to listen in the background while doing something else (like I did) this is the YA novel for you.

I really loved this story. I am not a young adult but the story still appealed to me even though it's high school aged kids as characters. I loved the paranormal mixed in with everyday struggles. It was both funny and fast paced at times. The connection between Lexi and the boys is both sweet and hysterical. The narration was great and I listened almost continuously. Couldn't put it down. Highly recommended !

I like the premise of the book, but I could have done with mainly the ghost bit and lost all the male/female bonding and who was wearing what, and how wonderful everyone was. I persevered to the end but am very relieved to have got to the end. Of course it left it all open but I won't bother to read any more. Maybe if I were 40 years younger I might have liked it.
This series is one of the best audios I have ever listened to. The narrator has a beautiful tone of voice which is full of expression and life, she reads fluidly and her voice is soothing to the ear. So good is the quality and voice that I get sucked right into the book, it's relaxing and exciting all at once. The male narrator at the end also has a great tone of voice and it is nice to get the guys perspective in a male voice
I have listened to this audio on more than one occasion and will be listening again in the future. The storyline is epic and one of the best written series I have read so far
If you want a great story with a fantastic audio then get this one as to be honest it does not really get any better than this
Ten stars if I could
I really love this book, from my title already know I love it.
Once I start listening I could not put it down and again (the title) could not get enough of this book.
I am so happy book 2 and 3 are coming out soon. Already pre-ordered book 2 (CANT WAIT). Also, I visited the author's website to see how many chapters the author is planning to write, and lucky me 15 Chapters!! Trust Me I am getting them all, don't doubt me.
Please B. L. Brunnermer is your reading this, I hope:
1. You make all 15 chapters available for me to purchase & listen; and
2. Never ever EVER change the Narrators.
Awesome story cant wait for the next part it was well told by the narrator and I loved that lexie had all male friends who would do anything for her yet weren't just wanting to jump into bed with her loved her uncle Rory and his caring nature toward his neice who he know what been though hell and wanted to help her though it
