Overview

First in the HAWAIIAN SHADOWS series by USA-Today bestselling author Edie Claire!


She thought that seeing the shadows was a curse. Until she saw him.

Seventeen-year-old Kali has always seen two sets of people: those living now, and those who lived before. But on her spring break in Hawaii, she is suddenly surrounded by more shadows than ever. Including one who, unlike the others, can see her too.

Zane remembers nothing besides surfing the monster waves of Oahu's North Shore. He doesn't even know how, or when, he died. He only knows that Kali's "gift" could be his last chance to find the light -- before the mysteries of his past plunge them both into darkness.

"Zane," I whispered breathlessly, knowing it was wrong, but powerless to stop myself. "If things were different... if you were alive... and I was alive--"
"Yes," he said immediately, interrupting me. He leaned in closer. His voice was no more than a whisper. "Absolutely, yes. Don't ever doubt it, Kali..."

Reviews from the bloggers:


"WOW! Is all I can say... I loved every minute of it. It has to be one of the best YA paranormal reads I have read to date. This book is filled with heart and soul... I don't think I have actually cried over a book since I was in the 7th grade and read Where the Red Fern Grows... Really Edie... I'm begging, write more Zane and Kali!"-- Melissa Hardy, Smardy Pants Book Blog

"This book is so incredibly awesome!! I loved absolutely every minute that I spent reading this!! It was a book that kept me up long into the early hours of the morning...I simply couldn't put it down!!...I loved Kali and Zane. Kali's spunk and Zane's enthusiasm, sense of humour and energy were infectious!!...Without a doubt a massive 5/5."--
Young Adult Book Addict

"Despite my inclination to listen to stories intended for a more mature audience, I found myself lost and totally engrossed in Kali and Zane's story. I listened to this audiobook straight through enjoying every minute of it. Wraith is the impressive first book in the YA series Hawaiian Shadows... The writing style is very vivid -- the author not only puts you there emotionally, but also physically in a way that makes you feel the warm ocean breeze of a Hawaiian spring... A fantastic YA listen." -- Loupe Duffy, Hot Listens [From the audio version, narrated by the award-winning Tavia Gilbert]

About the Author

Her romantic novels range from women’s fiction with romantic elements to a blend of romance and mystery, beginning with her traditionally published contemporaries, the award-winning Long Time Coming and Meant To Be (now a Nook #2 bestseller), and continuing with her exciting new series of interconnected romantic novels, Pacific Horizons, whose characters follow the migration of the humpback whales to some of the most gorgeous locations on earth.

I don't often choose YA titles. But I do enjoy Edie Claire's books, and a good ghost story, so this seemed to be a good choice for a sunday afternoon read. It was. Although it is decidedly YA in tone, this did not detract from the story which Clair always excels in building. Wraith is about a teenager who is in the process of moving to Hawaii with her military family. In many was it was a dream come true for Kali, but she had no idea just how wonderful it would be. The waves were there, the beautiful weather ad even a good looking guy her own age to give her the grand tour of the island. And the guy seemed to like her. Everything was falling into place, and would have been perfect. But Kali had a secret. A secret she shared with no one, not even her parents. She could see what she called shadows. They were not exactly ghosts, but they were shadows of events that had happened in certain spots long ago. But oddly, while in Hawaii, she seemed to see even more shadows than ever. And to make things worse, she now felt the energy, the emotion of the event as well. She might have been able to get used to that, if that were all. But there was more. There was Zane. He wasn't shadow, not by any means. The trouble was, he was not a living breathing touchable boy either. He was great looking, he could dance, swim and surf and even had a great sense of humor. But he was not like anyone she had ever met, Zane was special, very special. Maybe life changing special. recommended.

To weird. This story is very confusing and does not flow well. This story is hard to follow. Not a very good read! Not likely to read again.

I usually don't stray from authors I'm not too familiar with but i decided to take a chance, and i was not disappointed. I was rather intrigued as to how Edie Claire was able to take the reader directly into the mind of her characters and have then visualize what they see and feel. I love great writers who can make me feel like I have become part of the book itself. Wonderful read and It was great to make me feel like I was back at the Island again. Thanks for a great story. and the sequel was just as amazing! :)

I just finished this book and was no where near ready for it to end. I was pulled in right from the very beginning. Oh, and the twist neat the end, I was prepared to put the book down, so glad i didnt. This made the second story i have read from this author, the first being, Long Time Coming. I am getting ready to choose my third by her. PLEASE give us another, i need more from Kali and Zane.
