WOW: Intrinsical by Lani Woodland

Author: Lani Woodland
Publisher: Pendrell Publishing
Pages: 738
Release Date: August 20th, 2010

Sixteen-year-old Yara Silva has always known that ghosts walk alongside the living. Her grandma, like the other females in her family, is a Waker, someone who can see and communicate with ghosts. Yara grew up watching her grandmother taunted and scorned for this unusual ability and doesn't want that to be her future. She has been dreading the day when she too would see ghosts, and is relieved that the usually dominant Waker gene seems to have skipped her, letting her live a normal teenage life. However, all that changes for Yara on her first day at her elite boarding school when she discovers the gene was only lying dormant. She witnesses a dark mist attack Brent, a handsome fellow student, and rushes to his rescue. Her act of heroism draws the mist's attention, and the dark spirit begins stalking her. Yara finds herself entrenched in a sixty-year-old curse that haunts the school, threatening not only her life, but the lives of her closest friends as well. Yara soon realizes that the past she was trying to put behind her isn't going to go quietly.

This is a novel that I saw on Extreme Reader Book Reviews ! It caught my attention with it's beautiful cover and intriguing synopsis. It's also a book that is coming out soon, August soon. I'm now very excited for this one, it looks really really good. What do you guys think??

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Yours Truly,

I think it sounds good. I'm not wholly into ghosts but I will be interested to read some reviews when it's out. I hadn't heard of it before.

I like it already. The cover and the description sounds really good. Love that it's about ghosts and not vampires or werewolves. And August is indeed very close.
