A paranormal YA adventure.
Simon & Schuster Australia
Kennedy Waters didn’t believe in ghosts, until one tried to kill her.
When Kennedy finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that evil forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into her house 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 co-author of the Beautiful Creatures novels.
This was an interesting and exciting paranormal mystery that is a quick read. Personally I would have like to have seen a little more development of the introductory scenes – I felt that the author leapt into the bizarre, paranormal and mysterious too quickly and the protagonist accepted the sudden and unexpected paranormal activities without raising much concern or questioning. That being said the read was quite enjoyable and had me reminiscing about the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, of which I am a big fan.
I think the author and this series has potential. This is a little piece of escapism that is designed to leave you asking “what’s next?”
