Blurb:Sixteen-year-old Violet has the unusual ability to sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. She locates them by the echoes they leave behind…and the imprints they leave on their killers. Violet has never considered her strange ability to be a gift—more like a very disturbing nuisance. But when a serial killer begins terrorizing her small town, and more and more local girls go missing and later turn up dead, Violet realizes she may be the only person who can stop him. Violets best friend since childhood, Jay, is reluctantly helping her—and Violet is beginning to realize that what she feels for Jay is much more than just friendship. But even as she and Jay fall in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to discovering the killer and becoming his prey herself. (source: goodreads.com)
Technically, when I started reading this book I didn’t want to read the whole thing in just one sitting … but I couldn’t put it down. I fell instantly in love with the characters, especially with Jay ♥ He’s a great guy, every girl deserves a friend like him.
Violet is also pretty cool – besides the fact that she’s a 16-year-old teenage-girl with all these teenager-problems.
I liked the love story between Jay and her. It was really awesome reading something like this – even though there was some sort of romance-overkill in a few scenes.
The scenes where the murderer was „talking“ were also chosen very well, they gave me the creeps. This guy really was sick oO
But there were two things I didn’t like that much.
1) Violet’s „ability“ – where does it come from? She inherited it, well, okay … so what? WHY is she capable of this? There was no satisfying explanation.
2) The ending. I don’t want to tell much but at some point I couldn’t understand Violet and why she was acting like this.
Besides these two points I loved reading it and I’m glad that the second book is already available!
4 of 5 stars!
