Indelible  - Lani Woodland

I received a copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl.

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.
