Synopsis from Goodreads:

Life wasn't what Sophie was expecting, so why should death be any different?

She’s come back from swimming between the two, and every problem she left is still there. And then some.

There’s the human world, where she has a brother on the verge of ruins, band mates all set to go on tour, and people she thought she wouldn't be seeing for a long time showing up.

Then there’s her new world, where she’s seeing and hearing things that should not be heard or seen. Where Myles knows more about her than she could have ever guessed. She still doesn't know exactly why Michael is tormenting her, but somehow, everything is connected.

The monsters are closing in on all sides and the question is, will Sophie be able to defeat them before it all ends?

My Review:

Rae has a way with words that invites you in and wraps you up in the world she has created. This is an enticing, fast paced read and it was easy to get lost in the pages of this wonderful story. I couldn’t put it down for a second. Rae presents her wildly imaginative story in a realistic light, allowing you to fully understand the possibilities behind the story. She also engages you emotionally, creating a web to catch you in. This novel definitely left me in tears at the end. The vivid descriptions in this novel make it so that you feel like you’re watching a movie rather than reading a novel. Each and every aspect pops right into your mind. The descriptions are a poetic interpretation of reality that are impossible to ignore.

We’ve come to know and love the characters in this series in the previous 2 instalments, but readers get to know them even better in this one. Their personalities really shine through, especially in the 2 main characters. The realism infused into these characters, be they human or immortal, really helps to shape the novel as a whole.

My overall thoughts? I devoured this book! It was fantastic. Rae’s personable writing draws you in from the get-go and holds on throughout. I’m sad to see this trilogy end, but oh what an ending. This is a novel (and series) everyone who enjoys the supernatural should read.
