Summary

Akira has secrets. But so does the town of Tassamara.

Akira Malone believes in the scientific method, evolution, and Einstein’s theory of relativity. And ghosts.

All the logic and reason in the world can’t protect her from the truth — she can see and communicate with spirits. But Akira is sure that her ability is just a genetic quirk and the ghosts she encounters simply leftover electromagnetic energy. Dangerous electromagnetic energy.

Zane Latimer believes in telepathy, precognition, auras, and that playing Halo with your employees is an excellent management technique. He also thinks that maybe, just maybe, Akira can help his family get in touch with their lost loved ones.

But will Akira ever be able to face her fears and accept her gift? Or will Zane’s relatives be trapped between life and death forever?

So-so

This audiobook was alright- there was lots of telling rather than showing so I really didn’t care about any of the characters. If the telling was cut I’d be about half the length as not THAT much happens really.

Compelling story, vibrant characters.

Wasn't sure about 2 narrators but quickly adapted and enjoyed. Suspense, tears, happiness it's all here. I wish the next books were also in audio but will settle for the written word.

Great book and awesome narration..




I really liked the story and the characters. I loved Dillion and Rose and Henry, the ghosts. And I liked Akira and Zane, too. This was kind of like the TV show Eureka meets Ghost Whisperer, and I loved both shows so I guess that’s what made me like the story so much.

It was mostly about Akira facing her gift of being able to see and talk to ghosts and not thinking of herself as crazy, or it being called nothing but a “quirk.” She was a physicist so she had a hard time with seeing ghosts and science.

One sex scene and I thought it was pretty funny how Akira talked all about science during it.

The F-bomb was used 5 times.

As to the narration: Absolutely awesome, thanks to Sarah Grace Wright and Tristan Wright and thanks to whomever set up this session of the narration. It was exactly how a male and female should narrate; she did all the female voices and he did all the males. Tristan did a good job but he did sound so young sometimes, and not just when he did 15 year old Dillion spoke. But Ms. Wright did a phenomenal job. Her southern drawl for Rose was awesome and when Zane and Akira were having sex no one could have done a better job of the sounds she made while she was talking to Zane.
