I have to give Ms. Noser credit, I was not completely sure I would like this story. The story did seem interesting but it was book two in this series … and lately picking a book in a series (without reading those prior) tends to make you start looking for the prior books, so you know what is going on. I was rather surprised that I could pick this one & read it without back tracking to prior books. I LOVE series like this, because it means the author (Ms. Noser, in the case) put the back story in the current book!!!
Emma Roberts is able to call the dead back into a host body. Which allows that dead spirit to accomplish what they need to.
Officer Walker is a homicide detective, he is working on the Smiley Face murder case, which took one of Emma’s friends.
In this tale, Emma learns that the Book of Shadows that she uses is not safe. But it keeps pulling her in, demanding that she use the book. The how & why is answered in this tale, along with explaining how Emma became to be the witch she is.
Sadly, to get to these answers, Emma must loose so much. She will be tortured by the deaths that Officer Walker wants her to help him solve. Her live will be placed in the hands of those she loves, but the problem is will they be able to see what is going on or will it kill Emma? Those who want the power that Emma has, will use what every they can to obtain it & her … because without Emma, there is no power.
Emma will learn more about the Smiley Face murders & the gang involved. She will witness, her friends murder again but with more detail than she did in the prior book.
Sometimes when you bring back the dead, you have to accept what they may do. Every action has it’s one set of results, some are easy to accept but others can destroy your life. These are what Emma must learn, and go though … because when she decided to become the witch she is, that alone has consequences. Pity, that there was no one to show her the ropes!

I fell in love with this series from the 1st few pages of the 1st novel, The Shadows. But the tale of Grace, Denny & Patrick took more than one book to complete. After all, love is not an easy thing & it’s never simple …
Grace has been with Denny since her brother tricked her into meeting up with him. He’s trying to protect her & keep her safe from the Fomori … and the evils he fully believes they might do to her.
Denny is trying to run from a curse that states he will kill the Veleda during the ceremony that will release the power.
Patrick is hurting the area searching for Grace. But has come to an agreement with her brother to do everything in his power to keep her alive by looking for a way to break the curse stating the Veleda must die.
But there is so much more to this story. Grace finds her love, and Denny runs from his love. The Druid is not just a Druid … but that is something you will have to read to find out .
Is there a way to break this curse? Why do both opposing groups seem to believe that the Veleda has the power of the Goddess? Why does Grace’s brother have storm powers? What is the extra curse on the Veleda caused by a past Veleda? What did that Veleda do to cause this extra curse?
Mrs. Chance is an amazing story teller. She combines so much detail, and keeps you turning page after page to learn what is going to happen. I do hope that she does tell us more beyond this trilogy about these characters.

This is one of those books that the cover is interesting enough that you pull up what it’s about. You decide from there if the story sound interesting. This one did for me. (Hey, if the cover is interesting, it means the story might be just as interesting.)
You are reading a 5 sisters, the oldest are twins & the youngest triplets. The triplets: Savannah, Serena & Sasha. The twins: Tamara & Taila. Who have chosen to call themselves the “Delta Girls” because of the strange situation they find themselves in.
”My grin widened. To others we would always be the Delcarta sisters. But to us, we were not officially the Delta Girls.”
Savannah is a 16 yr. old. She went through surgery because of an brain aneurysm. Savvy (as she is called) spent her 16th birthday in a coma, one that lasted two months. She is treated by her siblings & mother like a she might break. Or worse. She does understand why they behave this way but it annoys her.
VolleyBall Guy … better known as Riley. Riley has a story behind who he is. One that he has to decide if he can tell Savvy, if he can trust her enough.
Savvy & her sisters discover that they are each having visions. But instead of them seeing the entire thing, it is split 5 ways. Sight, Sound, Smell, Taste & Touch … meaning they have to put together what the “visions” together to fully understand.
Savvy has visions of Riley. Then she sees his father who wants a her to give him a message. The sisters don’t want her to spill their secret, and she respects that. But her heart & the message push her to tell him. Savvy must decide if she can tell him or keep this a secret. Will she tell him about the coma, without him treating her as if she would break?
Ms. Madison created a story around psychic visions. She has created a family that makes you want to keep reading to learn what they will find out. But a main mystery as to what has happened to the father, as well as they mysteries the Delta Girls must solve from the visions they are having.
The characters are always a pull. But so is the world they live in. Ms. Madison provides you with enough details you can picture it in your head. Instead of glossing over, she created an interesting town, along with interesting characters.
Creating this story in a younger generation, makes it a little interesting. Plus you don’t have the sex scenes in these books, which is a decent break.
