Synopsis : They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse.
Sixteen-year-old Shiloh Ravenwolf is a heritage witch from the Broussard family, a family both destined and cursed. When she takes a summer job at Ravenhurst Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes spellbound by his charms.
Finally, Shiloh’s met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent may be the next victim on the supernatural hit list. And Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him. It sucks to have a destiny, especially since Shiloh would rather spend her summer being a normal girl who worries about clothes and boys, not the supernatural. But she’s never been normal and the stranger things become the more her own magical senses awaken. Complicated much?
With cryptic messages from a pesky ghost, she will begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist, and decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.
Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.
Review : When I started this book, It sounds pretty familiar to me. The beginning looks a lot like Vampire Kisses : a weird girl who doesn’t have any friends, who wears different clothes. A lot of persons think she is very weird et don’t want to be closed to her. But everything will change when a new boy and his father move in the old manor in town. A manor that everyone thinks haunted since a murder happened. And like in Vampire Kisses, these two young persons will be drawn together by an invisible bound. Here it is for the similarities. We must wait some chapters to understand that finally this story is really different.
