Overview

Sabine can't wait to show off her new boyfriend at the upcoming school dance, but she's also worried about her grandmother, Nona, who's suffering from a fatal hereditary illness. The only cure lies within a remedy book, lost long ago.

Determined to save Nona, Sabine goes to Pine City to visit a distant relative who may have clues. But there's someone else clamoring for Sabine's attention: a fifty-year-old ghost named Chloe who's been appearing in her dreams. Celebrated by Pine City every year on the anniversary of her tragic death, Chloe has become a town legend. Despite death threats and missing the school dance, Sabine must use her psychic skills to solve the mystery surrounding Chloe's untimely demise . . . and lay her soul to rest.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
In this sequel to Don't Die, Dragonfly, Sabine Rose is living with her grandmother since she was expelled from her last high school after her psychic gifts revealed the impending death of a classmate. Accompanied by her ghostly guide Opal and her nemesis Dominic (her grandmother's "handyman" who also has psychic gifts), as well as Thorn, a friend from school who dresses Goth but is a "finder," Sabine sets off to discover lost relatives who may hold the cure for her grandmother's illness. The troubled soul of a young girl who supposedly committed suicide sidetracks them. Her ghost is now idolized at a yearly town tribute. That mystery is resolved, but the grandmother's illness will require a witch ball. The final chapter sets up the sequel, Witch Ball. Readers will be able to pick up the story here, but will probably then go back to read the first volume. An intriguing cover will draw interest. Well-packaged light chills that should be a hit with teen girls, especially those who read the first book. (The Seer, #2). KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2005, Llewellyn, 242p., Ages 12 to 18.

School Library Journal
Gr 6-8-Sabine, the teen whose psychic visions caused uproar at her high school in Don't Die, Dragonfly (Llewellyn, 2004), is back. This time, she travels with her new goth friend to Pine Peaks, CA, to procure an old remedy book that may save her grandmother's life. Even before the trip, a dancing girl named Chloe who falls off of a cliff haunts the protagonist's dreams. Once Sabine and Thorn arrive in Pine Peaks, the haunting becomes more vivid and urgent, causing Sabine to realize that she must help this lonely ghost rest in peace. This diversion has closure by the end, but the original reason for the quest is left open-ended for the next installment. While rather slow at the beginning, the pace quickens after a few short chapters, revealing a novel that is simple yet interesting enough to recommend to reluctant readers. The story itself, as well as most of the writing, is average for its genre, although a few sections are quite poetic and help reinforce the eerie mood. Purchase where mysteries and paranormal tales are in demand.-Jessi Platt, Auburn Public Library, AL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

i totally recommend this series to whoever. it is about a girl trying to hide her secret (she's psychic!) from her friends. it is really enjoyable and fun. its funny AND scary. i recommend the entire series and i cant wait for the next one to come out, and the spin-off series about sabine's friend, thorn. i also recommend gilda joyce: psychic investigator by jennifer allison, premonitions by jude watson, dead is the new black by marlene perez, tattoo by jennifer lynn barnes, and the mediator series by meg cabot.

Where do I begin, I loved the whole series. The author grabs you from book 1, pulls you in and just keeps on going until the last book. The characters are easy to relate to and every one of the books has twists and turns in them that at first you think you have figured out only to find out that you are wrong and they end even better than you expect. Cate Tiernan is an excellent author Nd I can't wait to read her other series Balefire. This is a definate read that will keep you on your toes until the end.

I think that the author's purpose is to tell people that you could get messages through dreams. The genre of this story is horror. Most of the story takes place at night. Sabine and Chloe are the main characters in this book. This book is for teens. This story gets to its main point somewhat good. Because it talks about one thing then to another. It fulfills its purpose very well. I liked this book because I enjoy ghost stories. Or anything that has to do with ghosts. What I really liked about this book is that Sabine helped Chloe get revenge on Kasper. The author did a good job because it kept me reading the book. I just kept reading and reading. Once you read this book, you'll enjoy it so much that you'll want to read the rest of these boooks. I don't understand why Sabine had to meet Chloe when the small town fair was going on. I think it would of been spooky if they would of meet out of no where alone in the night.

Well I say the book was AMAZING! I love it! And Im getting a bunch of friends to read it, too. They say they LOVE IT. And I think that it actually was about finding the charm its just that chloe needed Sabines help. And thats also part of the series, Sabine being psychic. But if you dont like it thats just not cool. Im also going to reorder the books and keep them in mint condition. (unlike my others) :)
