This review originally appeared on book made me uestion all of the criteria that I normally use for rating and enjoying books In theory I have been reading this for 5 days but in reality it was only 2 I took a large hiatus due to a 41 page paper I had to write and I zoomed through it I finished the 60% that I had remaining today in probably about an hour I kept turning the pages uicker and uicker because I just needed to know what happened nextOne night Nikki Kitty's boyfriend went to visit a psychic after a party in order to learn about his future The psychic doesn't tell him about his future however she can't because he doesn't have one Now following a period of increasingly strange and erratic behavior he's dead When Kitty learns about the Life and Death Parade a group that her deceased mother used to belong to she sets out to learn about the circumstances surrounding Nikki's death Along the way she meets several different characters including Roan a supposed medium whom she is convinced can take her to meet with those whom she desperately seeks But when a web of mystery lies and intrigue begins to surface Kitty realizes that people know about Nikki than they are willing to reveal and it will be up to her to uncover the truthThe premise of this book attracted me immediately because although I will readily admit that reading about the spirit world mediums and psychics freak me out I apparently have an intense desire to never sleep again and love to read about them anyway I was under the impression that this was of a realisticcontemporary type from the Goodreads blurb but I was so wrong This belongs to one of my favorite genres fantasy and when the fantasy twist hits it hits HARD I was completely blindsided by the big reveal at the end which is pretty rare nowadays because I've read too many books and can predict all of the plot twists Not this one thoughAs someone who doesn't really believe in the idea of mediums and psychics it was pretty easy for me to connect with Kitty on this front She shared a lot of the same uncertainties that I do and this offset the difficulties I had with her strident personality I was also a huge fan of the way that she really did try to make her family feel better even though she did it in aninteresting way and I'm really not sure that that is how I would have done it I really liked the characters in this book a lot actually All of them were interesting had a purpose and really helped flesh out the book With the exception of one or two characters there wasn't really anybody just thrown in there for the heck of it Every character contributed to the story and their placement made sense As someone who almost always has troubles with characters in books and their personalities this was a really nice break for me I also just want to briefly mention how much I loved the originality of this book as well At some point you read so many books that every new book you read just seems to be a rehash of the one you read before The plot twists are insanely obvious the characters are boring and Joe Kenda's Homicide Hunter becomes even attractive than it already is even when it's late at night and dark and then you can't sleep I generally judge how much I love a book by how eager I am to pick it up If I start reaching for my phone than my bookKindle I know that it's bad And this was never the case with this book Whenever I did have the chance to read which this week was minimal I went for this over my phone I have never read a book with a plot even somewhat similar to this and I loved it And that plot twist This wasn't brief I apologize Now you know why my paper was 41 pagesThe reason this book made me uestion my reviewing criteria is because there were a few inconsistencies in this book as well as some choppier plot jumpsrushes that would normally knock this book way down on the star list I am very very picky about those sorts of things

How the hell are people raving about this book I was going to give it two stars but now I feel I need to offer the rating average a dose of sanityEverything here is bad The characters are annoying and one dimensional the plot is asinine things are predictable as jeep and when I was finished reading I wanted all non dead characters to die It is a uick read but honestly your time is better spent replaying the first five levels of candy crush over and over to try and beat your already outrageously high score
