I was left speechless. At first I was skeptical, but once I read the first few pages I was obsessed. I took an instant liking to emily; shes just an outcast in society and it isnt her fault. I fell in love with jacob as soon as he was introduced. My heart was breaking for their forbidden love. This book will have you smiling, crying, or even angry because it draws you in! I highly recommend this bookto anyone looking for a paranormal book NOT about vampires or werewolves. Definitely buying #2!! (I apologize for any spelling or grammar errors in my review- its late and Im super tired)

Good for Teens

I think I would have really liked this as a young teenager. As an adult, it is a little too simplistic and not, well, adult enough. Sometimes "young adult" novels span the age ranges (like Harry Potter) but this one doesn't quite reach that level. Admittedly, I read ...
I think I would have really liked this as a young teenager. As an adult, it is a little too simplistic and not, well, adult enough. Sometimes "young adult" novels span the age ranges (like Harry Potter) but this one doesn't quite reach that level. Admittedly, I read A LOT of books and may be harder to please. It is actually OK but just doesn't have enough going on to keep my attention very well. I have made it half way thru but cannot guarantee I will make it to the end. Also, in all honesty, the characters do not have the 'feel' of the correct period in history. The main character talks like a modern girl and doesn't seem to be aware of the social mores of the times.

    A Fun read

    well written book about a lady who is a medium, moves along a good pace, little twists that leave you wanting to read the second as I expect from a series

    Emily is a quite captivating character and Jacob is a ghost to 'die for'. This book is really an interesting read.

    Very enjoyable read!

    The story took off from the very first page and kept pace through the book. Emily was a bold woman for being so young. Considering the time period, she faced the prejudices of others with strength and dignity. I really like her. I'm intrigued by Jacob and enjoyed the chemistry between the couple (even though he is a ghost).

    I recommend this one. It was an exciting read with action, suspense and danger. The romance was clean and the love story is begging to be told. I can't wait to grab the next book and find out if Jacob and Emily can overcome the next obstacle!

    Fabulous

    Full bodied interesting characters, mystery galore and romance (if a bit unconventional ) . Everything that made me really like this book. I stayed up until 6:30 am to finish it and now am seriously thinking about buying "Possession" and start reading right now. (I'd say I could rest when I'm dead but reading this, I'm not so sure). This author never disappoints.

    Great intresting but ste Great interesting but weird story

    It was a good book and I wish it did not end. The gental mix of the old religon in the old fashoned world with the mystirious spirit and ghosts was nice and smooth.

    Cute :)

    Regarding the character's language being innacurate to the time frame: I think it's more steampunk than historical? But it's a cute read and i agree good read for teens and young adult.
