Corinne lives an average teenage life working at her dad’s cafe, hanging out with her best friend, and trying to forget a falling-out with her almost-boyfriend Mason. Things take a strange turn when she uses her late grandmother’s food dyes for a bake sale, and her customers suddenly find her irresistibly alluring. Then she discovers she and Mason are haunted by the same dreams of a dark force that consumes everything in its path . . .
I liked the originality of this book. It felt like one of the few books that really deserves the title “paranormal” (you know, the clairvoyant kind) because of it’s unique combination of dreams and reality. I can’t think of any other books to compare it to. The mystery in this book was great. It kept me guessing and wanting to find out more. My biggest complaint was that I felt like the plot meandered a lot. There are major, mysterious, and interesting things happening but we had to wait for it while we went to her driver’s test. It frustrated me. I felt like there were two plot lines competing with each other: her normal life and her paranormal life. It really slowed the pace down and a lot of the time I found myself wanting to get back to the paranormal plot. Maybe she was trying to blend the normal and the supernatural, but it just didn’t work for me. And then just as it got really good, the story ended! I’m dying to read more! K.C. Neal has set up what I think will be an amazing series.
