Violet thought she’d made peace with her unique ability to sense the echoes of the dead and the imprints that cling to their killers… that is until she acquired an imprint of her own.

Forced to carry a reminder of the horrible events of her kidnapping, Violet is more determined than ever to lead a normal life. However, the people who run the special investigative team Violet works for have no intention of letting her go.

When someone close to Violet becomes a suspect in a horrific murder, she finds herself pulled into a deadly hunt for a madman with an army of devoted followers. Violet has survived dangerous situations before, but she quickly discovers that protecting those closest to her is far more difficult than protecting herself.

Okay, let's get something clear. Before I read this, I heard this was going to be the last book in the series. But after finishing this, I was convinced I remembered wrong, and this isn't the last book. Then, I read someone else's review saying this is the last book! Is this, or is this not, the last book!?
Because if this is, I need to wipe this whole review and give just one cupcake and be all WTH!?
Okay, I'll just google this, just a sec..

Few google searches and a day later..
Yeah, still have no idea if this was really the final book. But let's presume not, since it definitely didn't feel like it.

It's been a while since Violet got attacked and got the imprint of her own. Things have settled, yet her life definitely isn't what it used to be; she's avoiding her friends, avoiding the group (and Rafe), having trouble with sleeping, you name it.
And like in every book, Violet (stupidly) wonders to places she's not suppose to and finds a bunch of bodies.
After this Violet gets to know her talent better, learns interesting things of the past and finally opens up to at least one of her friends. Prepare yourself!

Violet is pretty much her old self, just a little sleep deprived. Unfortunately she hasn't really learn impulse control, so she just runs off, hunting dead bodies! Never liked that quality in her, since she always gets into trouble that way! But other than that, I do like her.
Actually a little more now, since she did evolve a little; she realized she actually has friends worth trusting, and opens up a little. I always wondered how she can truly be a real friend if she has to hide such a huge part of herself, but now she has another true friend. Yet, that's when things get complicated.. Another thing Violet notices: it bothers her when Rafe gets close to another girl. Like, really bothers her. Someone might say she's screwed, I say YAY! *happydance*
But that's the main reason why it's so hard to believe this would be the last book; there's been a whole lot of hinting towards love triangle, and now something may actually happen, so this can't be it! Violet's realization was the huge cliffhanger for me and definitely makes me crave for the next book!
And yeah, I'm definitely Team Rafe, especially when he does something Jay never thought of. Don't want to spoil it, let's just say it's extremely creepy yet so romantic, you just have to love that kind of guy!

My thanks to HarperCollins for providing a copy for review!

Undeniably imagine that which you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst people think about issues that they plainly don't know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and
outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect
, other folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get
more. Thank you
