Sixteen-year-old Yara Silva has always known that ghosts walk alongside the living. Her grandma, like the other females in her family, is a Waker, someone who can see and communicate with ghosts. Yara grew up watching her grandmother taunted and scorned for this unusual ability and doesn t want that to be her future. She has been dreading the day when she too would see ghosts, and is relieved that the usually dominant Waker gene seems to have skipped her, letting her live a normal teenage life. However, all that changes for Yara on her first day at her elite boarding school when she discovers the gene was only lying dormant. She witnesses a dark mist attack Brent, a handsome fellow student, and rushes to his rescue. Her act of heroism draws the mist s attention, and the dark spirit begins stalking her. Yara finds herself entrenched in a sixty-year-old curse that haunts the school, threatening not only her life, but the lives of her closest friends as well. Yara soon realizes that the past she was trying to put behind her isn’t going to go quietly.
A few words to describe Indelible would be GREAT character developing and beautiful plotline. Indelible narrates the story of Yara coming in terms with her supernatural gift, her growing relationship with Brent and ancient curse that haunted Pendrell Academy. There’s a formula for sequels in YA literature but apparently Mrs. Woodland forgot that and this is the biggest compliment I can give to her. She took a risk and created her own sequel with fascinating turns in the story that it’s just superb. Yara is a character that you could easy love because she is a character that with every chapter and situations she grows and she knows how to make decisions even though that maybe the right one could hurt her or the one she loves. Something cool in the story is that you have a main character with a family that is different and how she deals with her family’s background. Also you have a brilliant plot about a school secret society and this X mystery that will leave you turning page through page. I think my favorite aspect of this story and it’s another example of how Woodland shines and makes her own story, is that Yara and Brent; they grew up together closer in this sequel, not apart. Their interactions are sweet and the way they protect each other is just beautiful. It’s just great to see what could be defined as a real couple in YA, one that learns from past lessons grew closer and made good decisions. Good JOB Mrs. Woodland. Indelible a sequel of a GREAT series that should not be missed.
I will give a copy of Intrinsical with a book mark for one winner that will be chosen between the people who comment in the review.
