I prefer them to happy beginnings; those kinds are just too corny. So it was great.

It was awesome too, how Seth came across as a weird, psycho-pervert and Julian was the knight in shining armor yes I know, we've all seen many books that have the knight in shining armor, but it's the only way to describe it. Julian saving Severine that's a nice, original name; I don't mean that in a sarcastic way either her while she was drugged and surrounded by a pack of werewolves was noble. He could've died, but he didn't view spoiler [ poor Tomas; he was only in the book for all of ten seconds until the end came hide spoiler ] , which was nice.
I hate when characters I actually like die, as I'm sure everyone else does. After that, however, I was shocked. I knew that there was going to be sexual material in it actually I forgot until I started reading the book. I didn't expect there to be so much sex in it. I expected there to be a couple of scenes. So when the first one came around I shrugged and went on my merry way. There couldn't possibly more sex scenes, much less ones that intense.
Dead wrong. It's easier to not be too picky. The only thing I was left wonder was why Seth had a mental breakdown? What reason did he have to feel so distraught? He was only dishing out what he thought was a little bit of poetic justice. In the end, the book wasn't bad. I'm actually going to pass it on to a couple of friends and see what they say. I'm sure they will have a different view on it than I did.

But could Olivia move past her own dark regrets of the life she left behind or would falling for him demand the ultimate sacrifice—herself? Congratulations to Nicki Scalise for delivering a fresh and innovative paranormal romance filled with humor, suspense, love, loss and friendship. What an incredible effort for her debut novel! Revenants are souls who, for all intents and purposes, are dead but they walk the middle plane of existence and purgatory to the end of time.
Revenants are created when a person dies and moves on from the land of the living without a proper funeral or prayers for them. Without a service or prayers there is no absolution, without absolution there is no chance for your soul to leave purgatory. Silence is a separate state of purgatory where souls must spend eternity alone, unable to interact with anyone or anything, living or dead, and they never move on for they become lost.
It is when Olivia is dragged along to go clubbing with her friend Portia that she meets Drake. Olivia had never felt a more physical or emotional connection to anyone while she was alive or since she has been dead, but little does Olivia know that from the moment she meets Drake the rest of her existence will never be the same again! The characters in this story are very well rounded.
Each character is emotionally exposed at some point throughout the story as they reveal their own personal desires, insecurities and battles. This is a perfect set up for the reader to witness the characters interact with each other, open up, grow, mature and develop throughout this series. She has such a great sense of humor, which had me laughing out loud as I followed her train of thoughts.
I found her to be a strong lead character and while she is flawed and shows weaknesses in this story, I can sense her character becoming quite strong and of some importance throughout the series. The chemistry between Olivia and her best friend Devon is off the charts! The way these two characters know and understand each other is very enjoyable to read and this could be wishful thinking but I am hoping this friendship develops throughout the series. Whether the development would be mutual or one sided is yet to be seen.
I felt very little chemistry between Olivia and Drake, which I think is mainly because I found his character somewhat weak. I am intrigued to see how Drake develops throughout the series and maybe he will redeem himself, thus changing my opinion of his character. In Prayer for the Dead , Scalise creates a unique story around Revenants and Reapers as well as introducing new paranormal identities such as Necromancers witches of the dead. While simply putting in a cameo in this story, the reader is given yet another indication of the direction of this series.
This direction comes with a guarantee that the next installment is going to be filled with more new and interesting paranormal identities and forms.
Prayer for the Dead was well written with great plot flow and pace that kept the reader constantly engaged. The plot twists and turns and cliffhanger ending leave the reader wanting the next book to the series immediately. I am sure the next installment is going to expose a whole new dimension to this series!
If you are looking for a fresh, new paranormal romance series to read, I highly recommend this book and in the meantime my advice to you….. When Kennedy finds her mother dead, her world unravels. Then she meets gorgeous identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart who reveal that her mother was part of the Legion, a secret society responsible for protecting the world- a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night. Explanation: Unbreakable is the first book in the new Legion series by Kami Garcia. It centres on the life of seventeen year old Kennedy Waters.

The Legion consists of five living members at any one time. The current five members being teenagers, Kennedy, the Lockhart twins Jared and Lukus, Alara the granddaughter of a Haitian witch doctor and Priest the genius grandson of a spirit based mechanical engineer. They must work together to stop the evil demon Andras from entering and destroying the world.
Opinion: Wow, wow, wow! This book had me hooked from the first chapter! I read this entire book in a day! Kami Garcia truly outdid herself with her descriptive and suspenseful writing.
The Qwillery: Historical Vampire Romance More or Less
The story was new and refreshing being about spirits, ghosts and ghost hunters. The mystery of the unknown and the sleuthing that the characters needed to do kept you gripped throughout the story. Kami Garcia did a fantastic job in using emotive language in the story, to the point where you feel as though you are in the scene.
This book did what no book has done before; it made me so scared that I had to sleep with the light on! Now I am not a person who likes scary stories, movies or shows, so I always steer clear from this genre. Though I never imagined that a book of this genre would also make me feel so scared!
