Elise feels like she's going crazy. Ever since moving across the country with her pastor father and rebellious sister, she's been having flashbacks to memories that are not her own... She can seemingly read the darkest thoughts of strangers... She's been having reoccuring nightmares about terrifying creatures who want to consume her soul... And that's not even counting the fact her creepy coworker seems to be stalking her or the fact her sister seems to be having some majorly serious issues of her own. Luckily Harlan, also new to town, is potential boyfriend material, but Elise can't shake the feeling her new romantic interest is somehow connected to everything else that's been going awry in her life. Elise knows something strange is happening, but she could never have guessed the extent of what's going on--or what will be expected of her at the story's exciting conclusion.
This sequel to A Need So Beautiful is quite possibly better than than the first in this planned trilogy. Still, read the first volume before the second to fully appreciate the story. --AJL
