The dead have been waiting for her…
Addison Beckett tries hard to pretend she’s normal, but she’s far from it. Since she was six years old, she’s seen the world around her unraveling, as if someone is pulling a thread from a sweater and it’s all slowly coming undone. When she ignores it, it goes away, so that’s what she does.
Enter her arrogant-but-hot professor Asher Green. He knows all about her special brand of crazy. In fact, he might be just as nuts as she is. Asher insists that the dead from a parallel dimension are trying to possess the living in this one. And since Addison seems to be the only one who can see these “wraiths,” she just might be the key to saving the world.
Addison wants nothing to do with Asher or his secret society, The Mortal Machine. But as their animosity grows, she finds it harder and harder to ignore the chemistry between them. And when she discovers that Machine laws forbid her from touching him, she realizes that’s all she wants to do.
Stop the wraiths. Break the rules. Save the world. All in a day’s work.
Normal was overrated, anyway.
My Rating: 5/5 stars
Another fantastic paranormal romance like no other. I must admit I was not expecting this book to be as good as it was but I found myself being sucked into this amazing book. Once you start this novel it is impossible to put its down. Although this is a paranormal romance you will not find another book on the shelve like it. The author has created an interesting and unique novel which has the reader hooked from start to finish. This bool dives straight into the plot and the pace never slows. Jocelyn Adams has given her readers a brilliant book with an original plot that captivates them till the very end.
Addison has never had a normal life no matter how hard she pretends, she can see things know one else can. An outcast who is simply trying to do something with her life, the last thing she needed was an arrogant but hot professor who hates her. But things may not always be as they seem and her professor might be just as crazy as her. Addison’s world is turned upside down within the space of a day and the only person who has answers is Asher her unwilling professor. Jocelyn Adams is a fantastic author who has managed to develop an original paranormal world full of wraiths. The reader has to pay close attention during this novel as the world and its creatures are quite complicated at times. Despite this the author cleverly gives the reader small pieces of information at a time and explains it beautifully. This makes it easy for you to understand and also keeps them interested. From start to finish the reader is hooked and can’t seem to put the book down. You are left up late at night desperate to find out what will happen next. As well as creating a phenomenal plot the author also added brilliant characters into the novel as well.
This book jumps straight into both the plot and the characters lives. The author has allowed her readers to quickly connect with her great characters. Both of the main characters developed throughout the course of the book which allowed the reader to experience events right along side them. Addison was a brilliant well rounded character who was easy to relate to. By adding small details such as her mum leaving her as soon as she was born the author made you sympathise with Addison. Although in the beginning she came across as shy and timid we soon discover that she had some fire inside of her. She was very determined and fiercely protective of her dad which made her an extremely likeable character. Asher was another fantastic character even though the reader did want to hit him at times. He was an arrogant, intimidating man at the start but as Addison begins to break down his walls we see another side to him. Apart from the fact he is incredibly sexy we also start to see his protective dude as his love for Addison grows. If this side of him wasn’t enough to make the reader connect with him then the heartbreaking decision he must make at the end of the book certainly will.
Overall this was a phenomenal book that I couldn’t put down. Jocelyn Adams is a fantastic author who captivates her audience throughout the course of the novel. I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to see what will happen next to these characters. I would definitely recommend lovers of unique paranormal romances read this book as soon as possible.
