Lately strange things have been happening to Daire Santos. Animals follow her, crows mock her, and glowing people appear out of nowhere. Worried that Daire is having a nervous breakdown, her mother packs her off to stay in the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico with a grandmother she’s never met.
There she crosses paths with Dace, a gorgeous guy with unearthly blue eyes who she’s encountered before...but only in her dreams. And she’ll get to know her grandmother—a woman who recognizes Daire’s bizarre episodes for what they are. A call to her true destiny as a Soul Seeker, one who can navigate between the worlds of the living and the dead. Her grandmother immediately begins teaching her to harness her powers—but it’s an art that must be mastered quickly. Because Dace’s brother is an evil shape-shifter who’s out to steal her powers. Now Daire must embrace her fate as a Soul Seeker and find out if Dace is one guy she’s meant to be with...or if he’s allied with the enemy she’s destined to destroy.
My Review: In the beginning Daire and her mother are on a movie set. Her mom is a make-up artist and they are always moving around. Lately Daire has been having strange visions and have only gotten worse once she became 16. In her dreams she meets this guy and has no clue what to make of it. Her mother is confused and has doctors try to cure Daire. When nothing works they head home where Daire's grandmother calls saying that she can help Daire. Left with no more choices Daire's mother sends her to be with her grandmother. Daire arrives at her grandmothers and things go weird. The first night Daire slept through, the following day when she is told things by her grandmother Daire believes she is crazy and tries to run away only to end up back at her grandmothers. Once settled Daire finally believes her grandmother and begins her training. Things are going to be stranger than ever now.
