Meet the Author

Lani Woodland has been an avid reader since elementary school when she first discovered the Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley Twins series. In sixth grade she began writing plays and recruiting (with force when necessary) her friends to act them out. Most of these early works were inspired by She-Ra, the epitome of girl power to her young self. She graduated from BYU with a BS in Family Science. Lani has always loved scary stories, and has a hard time enjoying any book without at least a little romance in it. She lives in Southern California with her husband, their two children and a large collection of board games. She has worked as a spot-welder, babysitter, janitor, photographer, gymnastics coach, and movie extra. She enjoys bonfires at the beach, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, speed talking, chocolate as a cure-all, and the word "precisely". Indelible is the sequel to her debut novel, Intrinsical.

    After spending the summer in Brazil, Yara is blissfully reunited

    After spending the summer in Brazil, Yara is blissfully reunited with Brent and her friends having been apart from them for three months at the beginning of Indelible. They aren't able to relax for long when the angry ghost of Pendrell Academy's founder's wife begins a new mystery to solve and attaches herself to Yara. 

    Yara is closer than ever to the spirit world, closer than most Wakers, making her more powerful but also putting her in more danger. The fact that she isn't quite ready to let go and fully embrace being a Waker rang true with me and was so realistic - I can completely understand where she's coming from, especially at her age. I don't think anyone could expect her to just accept it right off the bat, not even her grandma.   

    Yara and Brent have to be one of the best couples in YA fiction, if not the best. I think it's so cool that they share an important secret which allows them to understand each other in ways someone else couldn't. They're mature for their age, and there's actual substance to their relationship. They're completely refreshing.    

    I must admit while the beginning of Indelible sets up the plot of the book nicely, I worried it wasn't going to be as addictive a read as the first book, Intrinsical. That didn't end up being the case at all - the action soon absorbed me, and I was on the edge of my seat, unable to put this book down.  

    I loved Intrinsical, but Indelible blew me away. Just when I thought I couldn't love the characters more than I already did, Woodland proved me wrong, and I've never been more happy to be wrong. Indelible is that magical.  

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I’d always had some conflicting emotions with Intrinsical

    I’d always had some conflicting emotions with Intrinsical (Indelible‘s prequel). For me, it had always felt too much like the clichéd paranormal romance that publishers kept on generating these years — though it was a bit unexpected in some areas, I admit.

    Well, Indelible blew me away.

    Yara is getting used to her life as a Waker. After a summer in Brazil learning how to control her abilities with her vóvo, she’s back at Pendrell, trying to balance being able to see ghosts (not to mention her other paranormal abilities) with just having a normal life — a boyfriend, a job, and getting ready for college. Well, shocker! When she realizes that a ghost is haunting her, a secret “cult” (who’s somehow associated with the founder of Pendrell) is chasing after her, and her boyfriend is having some serious health issues, her life really gets upside down.

    One of the things that I loved most about this book is that Yara is finally coming to terms with being a Waker. I mean, I bet that any other person would probably grab at the chance to see ghosts (or maybe that’s just me?), but with Yara, she’s tired of it. She just died (no kidding), so there’s absolutely no way that she wants to get tangled up in this mess. But she does and there’s nothing she can do about it except just becoming who she truly is — a Waker. A person who can see ghosts. A person who can astral project. A person who has telekinetic abilities. A person who has paranormal powers, no matter what she does or says.

    And the plot. Oh, I loved this plot! There are a million possibilities ensnared in this book. The who, the what, the when, the where, the why, and the how all come to mind. Who’s chasing after Yara and Brent? What is the secret object that is stolen? When did this secret group take all these mysterious pictures of them? Where is the ghost that is haunting Yara? Why is Brent getting sicker by the minute? And how are Yara and Brent dealing with these mysteries?

    I suppose that you’ll have to read the book to find out.

    Read Indelible. It is undoubtedly fantastic and astounding and incredible and any other positive adjective that can come to mind. It is a sequel worthy of — no, better than — its prequel, Intrinsical.

    I loved Intrinsical, but I LOVE Indelible! It seems that a lot of times, the second book in a trilogy doesn't hold interest as well as the first or the third. That's not the case with Indelible at all. I was captivated by the book from the first page. The mystery in this book kept me guessing until the very end, and that rarely happens to me. I also loved the romance in this book, and enjoyed seeing the relationship progress. This is a definite must read by a very talented author! I can't wait to see what happens in the last book.

    Amazing Y/A Paranomral Romance! Must read!

    Indelible by Lani Woodland is the much anticipated second book in the Yara Silva Trilogy. It isa Y/A paranomal romance, with plenty of ghostly action. Yara and Brent are back again at Pendrell Academy with their friends for their senior year. Things are going to go different this year, with the the capture of Thomas the villainous ghost, and the Curse broken they have nothing to fear. But that is when all the fun begins. When Yara discovers things about herself she never understood or knew she could do as a Waker. Someone with the ability to see and talk to ghosts. She finds that after coming back from the dead she has more than just a few fears she must confront and some new enemies both living and dead she must contend with. Brent her boyfriend must also battle his own demons and it ultimately comes down toYara making a life or death decision that will alter her life forever.

    I loved Indelible, it was fast paced amazing thrill ride, that had me on the seat of my pants wondering what would happen next in the unexpected twists and turns along the way. Just when you think you have it figured out, you find another convaluted layer in the plot to untangle, and wonder how in the world can they make it through. And if you read Lani's first book Intrinsical, you know impossible sacrificial decisions must be made that can't possibly be chosen will be found in Indelible as well.

    I fell in love with Yara, Brent, Steve and Cheri all over again, and welcomed the added depth of Vovo, Yara's Grandma. I felt the plot was rich and intricately woven as all the subplots intermixed through out the book weaving back and forth through the over all theme. The depth of character development made them leap to life off the page, and feel as if they could walk into your room or astral project in front of you at any time. I felt that this second story is vital to the overall story that so many things happen with in the story line you cannot skip reading it.

    This ghost story adds extra elements of surprise that will keep your eyes flying across the page until the wee hours of the morning, as you bite your fingernails in nervous anticipation of how it will all turn out. But be sure to keep the lights on, because this ghost story will have you pulling the covers over your head if you aren't careful. But I promise you will be glad that you stuck through until the last satisfying page, which will leave you anticipating the next installment of the Yara Silva Trilogy. But as I found with Indelible, it will definitely be worth the wait.

    Lani Woodland's book Indelible is a must read! It is appropriate for all ages and is a clean read. It teaches you that everyone deserves second chances and that hope always out weights all else. That the bonds of love and friendship are strongest when put to the test. In addition Lani was also the photographer for the cover as well! Beautiful isn't it?

    One of the best YA paranormal series I've read.

    Indelible starts off with a new school year for Yara. She has been away from her friends for the summer in Brazil training with Vovo on how to be a good Waker. Yara and her friends are excited to reunite and resume a normal school year. Or so they thought....

    Yara's abilities haunt her wherever she goes. She is learning to cope with the realization that she will see and deal with ghost in every aspect of her life. She also has unique abilities that are enhancing and disturbing her Waker skills. Her relationship with Brent is even better in this book, not only because we get to see them interact as a couple but because they function much more realistically - its not all roses anymore.
    Unfortunately for Yara, she is learning that there are people in both of her worlds (physical and spiritual) that would take advantage of her and her skills. As Yara develops her Waker skills she becomes more confident and afraid of her own power. Vovo plays a bigger part in this book and she is a character that I really enjoy reading about. I can imagine that Yara will someday be much like her Vovo.

    I liked that we got to see more of Cherie and Steve in Indelible. They play a larger roll in the plot and become a dependable support group for both Yara and Brent. There are new characters introduced that throw in an unexpected twist on the story. I hope we get to see more of them in the next book.

    The first quarter of Indelible isn't as exciting as Intrinsical and I was worried that I was going to be disappointed. Then BAM! I couldn't put it down! I won't say anything else about the sudden excitement for fear of spoilers. Just trust me on this one - as hard as it is to believe, Indelible trumps Intrinsical.

    What I liked about Intrinsical is that Yara is no longer fighting who she is. With the help of friends and family she is growing into a strong young woman who stands firm in her beliefs, thinks things through before acting and is learning to serve the unseen selflessly. I for one can't get enough of The Yara Silva Trilogy.

    And the ending freaking rocked. (I actually giggled with happy anticipation!)

    Just as good as the first

    These characters are fantastic, the second book in the series gets more mystery and secrets happening inside Pendrell as well as the world beyond. I love the connection Yara has with Brent. The story is not like most YA novels out today, the heaviest the romance gets is kissing, there is no love triangle happening but there is a true test to their relationship. They both have great and true friends with no drama/angst outside the mystery they have to solve to save themselves.
    I love these books and will pick up anything in the future written by Lani. I was nervous at first to pick them up because of the cost, but they are very well made books and I highly enjoy the stories and the characters

    Excellent installment in a great YA series!

    My Review: (may include spoilers for those who haven't read Intrinsical)

    Once again, Lani Woodland has not only drawn us in with a stunning book cover (I mean, look at it), but she has also created a story that is filled with romance and humor and mystery. Indelible is the second book in Ms. Woodland's wonderful Yara Silva Trilogy. It further tells of Yara and Brent and their growing love amidst the chaos of Yara's Waker abilities (she can see ghosts).

    Yara is such a great character. In Intrinsical (book 1), we got to see Yara's fiery personality and resistance to change. With Indelible, Yara has grown so much. She is still a spitfire, but now she is much more open to the possibility of what could be. We get to see that in her relationship with Brent (who's great, btw!) and in the way she has embraced her Waker side. Such a great progression in this awesome character, Lani!

    And one of the best things about Indelible? Vovo!!

    Vovo is Yara's grandmother, and she's an outstanding character. Strong, determined, humorous yet stern, Vovo is the backbone to Yara's past. She epitomizes what it means to be a Waker (which can be difficult sometimes), and she pushes Yara to become her true self.

    My Rating:

    I am happy to give Indelible 5 stars. This second installment in the trilogy only proves that Lani Woodland is no one-hit wonder. I urge you all to run out and pick this up as soon as it's released!

    Intense paranormal activity ahead!

    Can Yara have any more adventures, more intense than what happened in "Intriniscal"? Yes, she can...and it's a roller coaster ride for sure. Yara has learned to deal with her special "gift" after spending a summer with her Grandmother. However, even the knowledge her grandmother taught her doesn't prepare Yara, Brent, Christy or Steve for what is about to happen during the school year. An angry ghost and a mysterious new boy are handing Yara more problems than answers to questions about what is going on at Pendrell.

    Building on "Intrinsical", "Indelible" has more action, more mystery and more character development. Lani's writing has taken off and draws the reader into the story from the first page and keeps you hooked until the last one...and leaves you wanting more, wondering what is next for Yara and her school friends.
