This book was awesome! Kept me entertained, curious and totally inspired the whole way through. Weldon came out with a totally original plot, type of superhero and a neat cast of characters to accompany us on the adventure of a lifetime.
I loved the originality of the story. I love how parallel her book is to my blogged series Crossed by Cobrador. There were some parts that totally had me grinning from ear to ear when Zoë realized her power or projected herself from her body and intervened with something that was happening on the living realm. The book had some badass moments.
I have but one complaint. Weldon has such badass ideas, but they were presented in an insecure and immature way to me. She has this awesome “wraith” character who is basically a ghost that travels outside of her body and can kick ass, but instead of kicking ass, Zoë contemplates too much. We have much of her inner dialogue for 300 pages. Just her thoughts about wraiths and if she does this, then this will happen, but if she doesn’t then this will happen.
I would have preferred more verbal dialogue and more action scenes.
Just wish there was more than inner dialogue, random flashbacks and repeated scenery. We were described Zoë’s slippers at least five times, Rhonda’s hair and nails, the way Zoë described herself with the same white hair. It was exhausting the imagery she provided because it was all the same throughout the whole thing.
The plot was original.
The Wraith power was wicked.
The whole concept was totally cool.
It was great to finally get to read a book where the cover and title perfectly described actual paranormal phenomena instead of it being a metaphor for something else. It was well done, but immature and a lot of it could have been considered irrelevant.
I would recommend the book to any paranormal lover.
