My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.
All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost - and the ghost saw me.
Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the home isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? it's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House...before its skeletons come back to haunt me.
I've been meaning to pick up the Darkest Powers series for quite a while now as it's come very highly recommended, so it was a treat to finally get to read them! I did enjoy this first book in the series, though it took a bit for me to get into it. It wasn't until later in this book that things picked up, which I guess is a factor of it being a series, so that's fine. I did enjoy the concern Chloe experienced at really thinking she might be schizophrenic, as that certainly would freak me out--I kind of wish Armstrong would have played on this more. But, learning the truth about Chloe's abilities was certainly interesting. And Lyle House, um, freaky central! Anyhow, I will look forward to the rest of the series, and hope it picks up with the action that this one ended on!
Have you read this series? Thoughts?
