If you had met me a few weeks ago, you probably would have described me as an average teenage girl—someone normal. Now my life has changed forever and I’m as far away from normal as it gets. I’m a living science experiment—not only can I see ghosts, but I can raise the dead without even trying. Trust me, that is not a power you want to have. Ever. I’m running for my life with three of my supernatural friends and we have to find someone who can help us gain our freedom back before the Edison Group finds us first. Or die trying.

My rating: ★★★★☆

I was so anxious to start this book! This one started off where the last one ended... duh! lol

Chloe was locked up by her own aunt in a research facility along with her friend Rae. Now, with the help of another ghost, she and another friend from the group home , Tori, escape from that place. Soon they reunite with their friends Simon and Derek in pursuit to find the guys' father. He is the only one who can keep them safe, a sorcerer, werewolf, necromancer, and witch. All experimental subjects of the Edison Group, gone wrong. They're powers too powerful, so now the Edison group wants them back to "fix" things.

But Simon's and Derek's dad is nowhere to be found, so instead they go to a family's friend who eventually helps them and keeps the safe.

Not only is Chloe dealing with this problem, but she is also starting to develop feelings for both Simon and Derek, who happen to be brothers.

Questions are answered, well some of them at least. But the suspense keeps building for the 3rd book.

I really like the supernatural nature of this book, as they all find out about their powers and try to control them. So many twists and turns, that every time they caught me off guard. After running away for so long and now finally being safe, it makes you wonder how long it will last before it starts up again.

Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
