A Shui Gui, Chinese water ghost, attacked twelve year old Hunter Wells while swimming in a lake at a small village in Luxembourg. According to Asian folklore, Shui Guis are known to be evil ghosts that live in the water and drown humans to possess their souls. Miraculously, Hunter survived. But his survival would not be without consequence. 

Unexplained night terrors and convulsions consumed his young life. After exhaustive medical testing, Hunter’s mother opted to seek the help of a Chinese Wu or Shaman who uncovered the true nature of his illness. Over time he discovered that he was robbed from his innate destiny and implanted with paranormal abilities, forcing him to endure many hardships. 

At seventeen, Hunter relocated with his mom to Clear Bluff, West Virginia, where she was born. There, he met Laurel, his first love. A chain of events and web of deceit, evil and even death, forced the rise of a new and powerful Shui Gui. Hunter's great resilience and teachings proved him to be a formidable opponent. But will he be strong enough to battle against the Shui Gui’s growing and unstoppable thirst for human souls


My Review: This was a lovely and refreshing read for me! This book had a lot of elements I haven't read in a while and it was one of those books that you just knew, knew it would be worth the read.

Hunter survived against a Shui Gui. No one survives, the ghost drown the humans, then take their souls. Surviving must mean they have something in store for Hunter, or he is one seriously lucky guy. 

A few years later, and after searching for answers, Hunter finally has an idea of what's going on. Looks like he has some paranormal powers. Which is going to lead to a road of hardships. So it looks like his survival, was their plan all along. 

So Hunter and his mum move. Things are going pretty well, and it gets even better when he meets Laurel. Shes his love and things are just amazing between them. But then things get shaky for Hunter. There is a Shui Gui out there that is gaining great power. Its up to Hunter to take care of this. It's going to be a lot for him, but I like this character and know he's going to be great and can handle this.

A great read. Great characters. A whole new world to explore and I can't wait for the next book!
