“Savannah wanted to kiss him, but she had never even kissed a human guy before, let alone a ghost. How was she supposed to kiss him if he wasn’t really there?”
Savannah has never been in love before, but she’s in love with Hunter Emmerton. He’s cute, funny, charming ... and a ghost. How can you date someone if nobody else can see them?
When seventeen-year-old Savannah Fraser and her three friends are killed in a car accident, they are given a second chance at life by a group of century-old earthbound spirits who need their help.
Savannah learns she is a Chosen One, which means she can switch between human and spirit form, heal people, and control the weather—and she is also now invincible.
The Chosen Ones are the only ones who can defeat The Forces—a trio of evil half-spirits who are slowly destroying the perfect little town of Fort Everwick with violent storms and not-so-natural disasters—and stop them from harming everyone they care about.
The Forces are set on destroying everything Savannah knows and loves, but they also have a more sinister plan—they want a new member to join them. They won’t give up until they get the one they want—and they have Savannah firmly in their sights.
But what Savannah didn’t count on was falling in love with Hunter. She’s never loved anyone the way she loves Hunter, and she knows he loves her, too. But how can they be together forever if he no longer exists and she’s the only one who can see him?
Will Savannah have enough belief in herself to defeat The Forces, or will they be able to lure her to the dark side and turn her against her loved ones—and tear her and Hunter apart?
My Review: LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! It reminded me of another series, so I was even more excited to read it, but omg this book was just amazing!
So there are chosen ones, who are certain people that are brought back to life and given the chance to be human and ghost. Pretty darn cool right?! Savannah and Hunter are just great characters and written so well, that I just couldnt get enough of them. Oh, and Hunter is one of those male characters that you just NEED to read.
So Savannah is a chosen one and just happens to fall for Hunter along the way.....Hunter is more than just eye candy and I could tell these two are meant to be, but of course there was something trying to tear them apart. I just hate that, but its that romance that makes you go on and love these characters even more while making sure they stay together and everything go perfectly.
Savannah and Hunter aren't the only characters in the book, you of course have Savannah's friends who are also chosen. They are all good characters and I'd love to see where they head in the next book. You also read about rouges and they just want Savannah and I spent a good time wishing they would just die off and leave her alone.....Yeah I liked these characters a lot! The rouges are also chosen ones, but power goes to their heads and they really arent that good. While Savannah has great power and I know she will do great things and the power won't go to her head like it did with those rouges.
What I liked about the other characters was that we get to know them and like them, even though they aren't going to be big main characters. Some background characters and over done or not done well enough, but I get enough sense of them that I was fine with how they played out in the book. That was a big thing for me, since a lot of books have drove me crazy with the background characters.
So overall I really loved this book and can't wait to dive into the next one and see what I'm in store for!
