A thrilling debut story of death, love, destiny and danger
Lenzi hears voices and has visions - gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she's a reincarnated Speaker - someone who can talk to and help lost souls - and that he has been her Protector for centuries.
Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.
In Lindsey's debut, a well-crafted and imaginative ghost story, 17-year old Lenzi Anderson fears she's losing her mind. Tormented by voices pleading for help, Lenzi follows dreamlike visions and meets Alden, who tells her she's a Speaker, someone who helps hindered spirits resolve their issues and move on. Because Speakers allow the ghost to possess their bodies, and the possibility exists of being possessed by a malevolent soul, each Speaker is assigned a Protector, and Alden is hers. In fact, Alden has been Lenzi's partnered Protector for numerous lifetimes, as they are reincarnated together again and again. But something's wrong Lenzi has been missing for 100 years and is suffering past-life amnesia. As she steps from her normal life into a world both gratifying and terrifying, Lenzi becomes tangled in complicated relationships while being hunted by a malicious shade. Though Lenzi's family members are thinly drawn and almost extraneous, Lindsey deftly remolds and refreshes familiar elements and makes them her own, coupled with a light romantic touch. Her accomplished writing breathes energy into realistically flawed characters and smoothly builds to the book's intense climax. Ages 14 up.
The best book
The book is amazing. It's very creative and so good I could not put is down at all. I've read this book 6 times because it's such a good book. I am a little disappointed in the author though because she hasn't annoyed any sort of a sequel yet. But I recommend this book to everyone because it's so good.
I couldn't put the book down! It was very creative and I would definitely recommend this book to people
