Synopsis

Out walking alone one rainy night, Lucy becomes convinced that someone – or something – is following her. Spooked, she ducks into a cemetery to try and lose her stalker. Panicking in the darkness, she slips and stumbles into an open grave – only to discover she is not alone in there. She manages to escape, but soon begins having terrifying visions and dreams – and she still can’t shake the feeling of an unseen presence, always watching, waiting… Who was the girl in the grave? And what did she do to Lucy?

READ AT YOUR OWN RISK. IN THE IMMORTAL WORDS OF RIVER SONG, “SPOILERS!”

There’s 4 books in this series, all served up in two novels (think The Vampire Diaries reprints where there’s two books in one novel).

This is a good read. I had a dream that was based on the first book a while back and when I found it in a store, I bought both of the omnibus’ (omnibui?) since I had only read the first out of four years ago.

It was a very easy read, especially if you like mystery and horror and wondering whats happening next, it’s really good. While the characters weren’t always up to par and the protagonist, Lucy, makes the most dimwitted decisions on planet earth, it is a lovely read.

One night after moving to Pine Ridge to live with her aunt and step-cousin, Angela, Lucy gets lost and ends up in a open grave… and she’s not alone! There is a girl in the grave, whose touch burns Lucy’s hand. The girl dies in her arms, making her promise never to tell anyone what happened in that open grave.

Soon she is plagued by nightmares and visions, and the feeling that someone is watching her every move. When Lucy discovers that the girl who gave her this terrible curse is the sister of Byron Wetherly, he tells her about his sister, Katherine’s strange powers, and that whomever killed her may be after her.

At the end of the book, Angela disappears, Bryan dies, and Lucy is so utterly alone.

BUT, Byron may not be as dead as she thinks, and it’s up to Lucy to figure out what is happening to her and save the people she cares about before her mysterious stalker makes her his… forever.

I really enjoyed this. There were times I was like, “WHY ARE YOU SUCH AN IDIOT, LUCY” because she has evidence time and time again that there really is something messing with her, and she’s dense enough not to keep complete hold on it to prove herself. I’m surprised there weren’t any times where Lucy may have thought everything was entirely in her head. Under the circumstances, I’d even begin to think I was losing my mind.

All in all, good read. Fast paced, but sometimes slow. It’ll definitely keep your attention, though, through all four books (or two omnibui, whatev).
