Emma just turned fifteen. Her powers have spiraled to include unusual magic, and she gladly relies on Hank and Christina’s friendship to mark the way. Thomas Carson’s feelings for Emma have changed, her aunt Franka tells her—a young man her aunt describes as a young buck whose testosterone plays a big role in his life.
New friends around Emma surprise her. They appear to be like nothing she could have imagined, and their goals stir more disturbance than their presence. Until she bumps into the scourge of our existence: entities who wish to control what humans do and say. She learns they are powerful, vindictive and will stop at nothing to obtain what they want. Will Emma be able to protect the people she loves?
One of the reviews from Amazon, which I fully agree with:
I enjoy thrillers with supernatural elements and magic realism. I’m a believer in some psychic powers and love when authors treat them with serious consideration.
Joss Landry is one of those authors and her character Emma Willis experiences phenomena, such as astral travel and out of body experience. How characters, especially young ones such as Emma, deal with such special powers and come to terms with them responsibly is a fabulous theme for any book, but Landry does an excellent job and distringuishes herself from the platitudes which many blockbusters serve us in that respect.
On top of all this, Emma has to decide what professional career she should take, which direction her life should take and what to make of the characters around her. Important cross roads in all aspects of her life coincide with the appearance of some vicious entities that interfere with her life and that of her friends, calling her into action.
I truly enjoyed this novel for its characters and its unexpected depth. This is a treat.
