|Paperback, 30 August 2016|| |
Alex is more real than anyone I've ever known. And him being dead really doesn't change a thing.
After the loss of her mother, Chloe Kennedy again starts seeing the ghosts that haunted her as a child. Spending time at her grandmother's country estate in England is Chloe's chance to get away from her grief and the spirits that trouble her. Until she meets a mysterious stranger
Alexander Reade is 157 years dead, with secrets darker than the lake surrounding Grange Hall and a lifelike presence that draws Chloe more strongly than any ghost before. But the bond between them awakens the vengeful spirit of Alexander's past love, Isobel. And she will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who threatens to take him from her.
To stop Isobel, Chloe must push her developing abilities to their most dangerous limits, even if it means losing Alex forever and giving the hungry dead a chance to claim her for their own.

Chloe seems to have a problem, she can see ghosts. I know people in real life who have this problem as well and handle it a bit differently than Chloe. Her mother taught her to tell them to go away, so they did. But when she's forced on a holiday to England to give her father some space to recover it seems like the ghosts are coming from everywhere and of course there's Alex. I don't know what to make of him, he seems like he doesn't know what to make of himself actually. It's okay Alex, the readers feel just as twisted and confused as you do. It just seemed like at times Alex was a bit careless and withholding on certain information that Chloe could had found useful had he told her earlier.
Joe on the other hand, I really really liked. He seemed like such a great guy and even after the... situation. The guy took everything with stride and wasn't ashamed to protect or stand up or make sure Chloe was okay. It was like it was something he just wanted to do. And not to reflect on my own failure of a love life here but I found him to be very sweet and easy to like. If only Chloe weren't so dense.
There was a pretty hefty fear factor in these pages but instead of scaring me they kept me turning the pages. I've noticed this is like the 3rd book I've read recently that has to do with creepy things, mansions and England. Is there something I should avoid when I travel over there? IS THERE SOMETHING I SHOULD KNOW?!
Overall I kind of thought the fear factor element was a little hard to understand. Throw Alex in there too. But the ending. The ending had me saying, "no no no no." as soon as I realized it was the last page.
YOU CAN NOT END A BOOK LIKE THAT AND EXPECT NO ONE TO FREAK OUT!
Seriously. I need to know what is happening. Like, yesterday. Ugh.
