DISCLAIMER: I won this book from Epicreads. All opinions herein are of my own and are not swayed by the Epicreads website.

Summary from AmazonWhen seventeen-year-old Breezy Lin wakes up in a shallow grave one year after her death, she doesn’t remember who killed her or why. All she knows is that she’s somehow conscious—and not only that, she’s able to sense who around her is hiding a murderous past. In life, Breezy was always drawn to the elegance of the universe and the mystery of the stars. Now she must set out to find answers and discover what is to become of her in the gritty, dangerous world to which she now belongs—where killers hide in plain sight, and a sinister cult is hunting for strange creatures like her. What she finds is at once empowering, redemptive, and dangerous.
Starting out, I had no idea where this book was going to go, but I knew it didn't end up how I expected it to at all. Which isn't a bad thing! I love books that surprise me. Breezy was a very likable character. She's been through it all, and still comes out with her sanity. A very strong, female lead in a book is what I like, especially when they're well written and I like them right off the bat.
The other characters definitely took a backseat to Breezy's amazing personality, but Jake and Zeke are definitely likable. Rain made me itch when I was reading about her, but I like characters that evoke that response in me.
I hope that there's a sequel to this book (come on, Kali Wallace!!!) because I felt like a lot of questions were left unanswered. Maybe Zeke and Breezy can have a little something going on in the potential next book? Aheh. Wishful thinking.


I just read on Goodreads where Kali Wallace said this book will definitely be a standalone (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!) but that she might potentially be interested in writing more in the world.

All in all I love the fact that it's a creepy book, filled with monsters and suspense. It's definitely good enough to be deemed 4 stars from me, which rarely happens. I'll definitely be reading any other books that Kali writes because her writing does it for me! A book I definitely recommend.
