Not alive. Not dead. Somewhere in between lie the Beautiful Dead.
The first of four books that will leave you restless...
Something strange is happening at Ellerton High. Jonas, Arizona, Summer, Phoenix. All dead within a year.
Darina, Phoenix's grief-stricken girlfriend, is on the verge. She can't escape her intense heartache, or the impossible apparitions of those who are meant to be dead.
And all the while the sound of beating wings echo inside her head...
Will love conquer death? And if it does, can Darina set it free?
I really liked this book. It was a great start to a series of books that I think are going to be great. There were lots of really clever ideas that we've never seen before. I did haev a couple of problems with it though. Darina's voice was very desperate and the tone of it fluctuated throughout the novel; although that might have been intended becasue of what she goes through and secondly, I couldn't figure out whether it was set in England or America. I know it's odd but that really bothered me for some reason.
Overall, I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series and I think it's going to be a good one.
