{Synopsis} – Olga Gay Worontzoff left the Underworld for her final year of high school anxious for things to return to normal, but fate has other plans.

The new hottie at school reads her thoughts but nobody else’s. Her best friend wakes up from his coma acting like a completely different person. Caught in a world that’s a mix of familiar and supernatural, she must confront what she will—or won’t—do to bring him back and stare down her own perceived inadequacies to face a couple of tenacious demons, figurative and literal.

Everything she thought she knew about reality will change as she walks the line between past and present, fear and faith, love and loyalty.

And by the end of a heartbreaking year, she might be forced to realize “normal” in the conventional sense of the word is the one thing she may never achieve.

{My Thoughts} – Olga, Connor and Nate all have something in common. The problem is that neither of them really know what is that they have in common other then each other in present day.

Olga and Connor went sailing one day and Connor was hit by lightening and fell in the water. Olga when in after him to save him, however, Connor was stuck in a coma.

Nate on the other hand had been drag racing with a pal of his and all though he crashed he lived, but not without landing a stay in the hospital.

Nate and Conner become roomies in the hospital and that is how Olga and Nate meet. They start hanging out together and eventually Connor wakes up but he isn’t the Connor that everyone remembered and loved. He is someone completely different and because of that a lot of not so normal events begin to unfold.

If you enjoy reading books about demons and angels and how they come to be and how they battle one another or just find the concept entertaining I am sure you will enjoy this book. I realize this is the third book to the series and I have not read the first two, however with that in mind it seemed to read well as a stand alone book, which I am grateful for all things considering. I need to track down the other two books so that I can read and review them.

I had received this book on netgally in return for an honest review. My only complaint is that it wasn’t a book I could send to my kindle so I Was stuck reading it on my desktop, which trapped me to my computer and made it more difficult for me to keep my interest in the book. When I am on my computer I multitask and well I can’t just read I have to do a ton of other things as well.

I did however, enjoy this book and I hope to read more from this author in the near future!
