When Allie’s best friend dares their group to play a game in a cemetery—something she calls “witching”—Allie never expects what it might mean for her. When she plays, she doesn’t just find bodies, she summons their souls. But one soul wants more than Allie is willing to give.

And the boy next door could be the key to saving her.

Cody Burkhart. Straight from Montana, cowboy hat wearing, and smoking hot, he’s just the thing to help Allie become “normal” again after the death of her mother. And as her newly appointed Guardian, he’s also just the thing to help Allie ward off the vengeful spirit who’s after her soul. Except Cody has his own demons to slay that keep him closed off. But as the full moon approaches, so does their only chance to break the curse, and Cody will have to make the biggest sacrifice of all.

 
 
 
 
 

 

I just finished reading this, and the tears are still streaming down my face in a continuous flow. Wow! What an utterly captivating read. This author has written a beautiful paranormal story with well-developed characters that reach out to you and not only pull at your heart strings but have you cheering them on.

 

Allie and Cody are high schoolers, and each has suffered devasting losses in their lives. Little by little circumstances occur that continue to bring them closer to one another. Unfortunately, these circumstances may be deadly, and they face the battle of good and evil.

 

This story has it all from misfortunes to ghosts to even moments that will have you looking over your shoulder. I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to seeing more of this author's creative mind.

S. D. Grimm’s first love in writing is young adult fantasy and science fiction, which is to be expected from someone who looks up to heroes like Captain America and Wonder Woman, has been sorted into Gryffindor, identifies as rebel scum, and loves elevensies as much as afternoon tea. Her patronus is a red Voltron lion, her spirit animal is Toothless, and she totally has a superpower. She is represented by Julie Gwinn of the Seymour Agency, her office is anywhere she can curl up with her laptop and at least one large-sized dog.
