In a small village in New York lives Jane Doe, a girl with no memory of who she is or where she came from. So when she is working at a diner and slowly begins to realize she can see dead people, she’s more than a little taken aback. Stranger still are the people entering her life. They seem to know things about her. Things they hide with lies and half-truths. Soon, she senses something far darker. A force that wants to cause her harm, she is sure of it. Her saving grace comes in the form of a new friend she feels she can confide in and the fry cook, a devastatingly handsome man whose smile is breathtaking and touch is scalding. He stays close, and she almost feels safe with him around.

But no one can outrun their past, and the more lies that swirl around her—even from her new and trusted friends—the more disoriented she becomes, until she is confronted by a man who claims to have been sent to kill her. Sent by the darkest force in the universe. A force that absolutely will not stop until she is dead. Thankfully, she has a Rottweiler. But that doesn’t help in her quest to find her identity and recover what she’s lost. That will take all her courage and a touch of the power she feels flowing like electricity through her veins. She almost feels sorry for him. The devil in blue jeans. The disarming fry cook who lies with every breath he takes. She will get to the bottom of what he knows if it kills her. Or him. Either way.

***Melanie  #NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***

Hmmmmmmm so I have seriously mixed feelings about this book. I have been a HUGE Grave fan since the beginning but there was something about this installment that didn’t quite work for me.

The components are all there but without giving spoilers (because this bit is in the description) Charley and the whole amnesia thing really threw me off and I found I was frustrated FOR her AND WITH her. Maybe that was the plan in which case kudos to the fabulous Darynda Jones because mission accomplished.

I imagine this book will get a lot of mixed reactions from fans of the series but as I never read other reviews until I am done I can’t say for sure.

If you are a fan of the series you obviously need to read this – that goes without saying but I am sad to only be giving this 4 stars when all of the others have been a solid 5. I do, however have high hopes for book 10 after the end of this one!

I would still recommend that if you haven’t started this journey yet grab book 1 now! The journey is worth this little bump in the road.
