Faded

Author: Chloe Miles

Release Date: August 24, 2012

Publisher: Self Published

Summary:

"Savannah wanted to kiss him, but she had never even kissed a human guy before, let alone a ghost. How was she supposed to kiss him if he wasn't really there?"

Savannah has never been in love before, but she's in love with Hunter Emmerton. He's cute, funny, charming...and a ghost. How can you date someone if nobody else can see them?

After seventeen-year-old Savannah Fraser and her three friends are killed in a car accident, they are given a second chance at life by a group of hundred-year-old teenage earthbound spirits who need their help.

Savannah and her friends learn that they are The Chosen Ones, which means they can switch between human and spirit form, heal people and control the weather. And they are also now invincible.

The Chosen Ones are the only ones who can defeat The Forces - a group of evil spirits who are slowly destroying the perfect little town of Fort Everwick with violent storms and not-so-natural disasters - and stop them from harming everyone they care about.

The Forces are set on destroying everything Savannah knows and loves, but they also have another plan - they want a new member to join them. They aren't willing to give up until they get the one they want...and they have Savannah firmly in their sights.

Savannah had never been confident in herself before, but with her new-found powers, she discovers just how strong herself and her friends really are. But what Savannah didn't count on was falling in love with Hunter. She's never loved anyone the way she loves Hunter and she knows he loves her too. But how can they be together forever if he no longer exists and she's the only one who can see him?

Will Savannah have enough belief in herself to defeat The Forces, or will they be able to lure her to the dark side and turn her against her loved ones...and tear her and Hunter apart?

My Thoughts:

Today, I'm just going to go ahead with the review, 'kay?

So... This started out kind of slowly to me.

First of all, there wasn't much detail. Some of the things in the book, I couldn't imagine myself, without any added imagery, and then others, I couldn't imagine at all.

Next, grammar. You all know how I feel about that topic, when applied to books that I read, and I'm sorry to say, but this book had poor grammar throughout it.

Also, I didn't like how the story seemed somewhat repetitve and how the were just told that they were "The Chosen Ones", instead of them gradually learningit, through some climatic incline with the use of suddenly appearing powers, or something more interesting like that.

Alas, there was some good things about this book.

For example, I liked the idea of the story. How many people can come up with the idea of a romance between a hiundred-year-old ghost, and a newly dead girl, also adding in that they can switch between human and spirit bodies.

And, I did like that this book had romance in it (I like all of my books to have at least a little).

I do have to say that I had a little bit of a hard time getting past the first few chapters, and finishing the book as whole, but I did it!

So, I gave this book three hearts.
3 hearts

The idea of the story does sound pretty great.
It drives me bonkers when the characters are special somehow and we are supposed to accept it without knowing the deets.
I NEED to know why they are special, what purpose it serves, etc.etc.
They also sound like the white lighters in the show Charmed.
Just like the white lighters leo and paige.
Very nice review. I also love the new look of your blog :)
