This book was pure awesomeness! And I found myself to be pleasantly surprised with it :)
I love ghost stories, and I thought that's what I was getting when I requested to review this book... And I did get that, but there was something more to the story that really surprised me: Egyptian mythology! I absolutely ADORE mythology and was beyond excited when I read about this in the book! I thought it just tied in so perfectly with the story and with Taylor's ability. Speaking of which, the idea of Taylor seeing ghosts and them marking her so that she can transfer the mark to their killer so the Darkness can claim them... *takes deep breath* totally brilliant! I absolutely loved the idea of it! This is what captured my attention in the first place (the mythology was just a plus!) The one thing that's not so cool? If Taylor doesn't transfer the mark to the killer on time, the Darkness will come and claim her! Yikes! No pressure, right?
Switching onto another note, can I just say that those kids at school are just cruel?! Man, the things they do for their stupid club... It's so unbelievable! And then there's Justin... I actually ended up really like him by the end :) He can be really great if he tries. Underneath all that jerkness you'll find a really sweet guy. And Justin's killer? Wow, just wow. I was totally shocked, yet at the same time I was not. I mean you can expect anything from... the killer.
So, overall, I really enjoyed the story, with its mystery and suspenseful ending that practically had me biting my nails! I loved all the ghostly stuff and the mythology goodness and cannot wait to know what will happen with Justin and Taylor next!
