Overview

Roger Kilbourne has the ability to "cross over" into the land of the dead and speak with its residents. It is a startling gift, and not a pleasant one. Roger manages to escape his brutal uncle, who has exploited his talents for years; after he gets a job in the palace laundry, he thinks he will be safe. Instead, there are worse dangers. First, he falls hopelessly in love with the bewitching, willful Lady Cecilia; next, he is pulled into the midst of life-threatening court intigue. Soon Roger is using his gift as a way to get the life he dreams of-even if it means bringing the dead back to the land of the living.

As her first book this wasnt i bad i actually fell in love with the main charcter Rodger and sometimes even got fustrated with him. This was a good read i hope she keeps writing! I honestly thought it was going to be another one of those high school romance/i have a cool power book but this was completely oppisit! A world of its own...

I enjoyed the world that was built in this story but as for the story itself I thought it was just ok. I never came to like Roger. I know that he was raised in an abusive environment and that probably stunted his social growth but I found him him to be irritating and dislikable. As is typical of most YA books these days there is the love interest. After he escapes life with his abusive uncle he fixates on Lady Cecilia and falls in "love" with her. I imagine it's because she's the first beautiful and lively female he meets as a part of his new life. But it irks me despite all the evidence that she is nothing but an empty headed twit that he fixates on her and is totally clueless about the other girl who is in love with him. He's like a child who sees a shiny toy and decides that is the one he must have despite anything else that comes across his path.**Spoiler start-highlight the next line to read the spoiler**Even though he does end up realizing what he had in front of him all the way it made me mad that he only gives up on Cecilia after she is gone for good. It's almost as if he is just settling for the consolation prize.**End spoiler**I was also hoping he was going to be one of those characters that overcomes the obstacles in his life to grow into someone who is heroic. I felt we do not really see that. He remains whiny, self absorbed and selfish other than his devotion to Cecilia. I do not understand why he inspires people like Maggie and Mother Chilton to help him when he's rude and ungrateful.When he does finally do something heroic it seems out of the blue.The world this story takes place in was fascinating. It's basically a kingdom ruled by women and everyone sees it as the right of women to rule because they are the ones who give life. The idea of men ruling is totally foreign to them when they meet people from another land who are ruled by men. It mixes a bit of medieval flavor, with fantasy and a bit of modern day with guns, a foreign weapon, intheir world. I found it funny that the Queen's brother is married off to the Queen of another country in order to seal an alliance. It's like the polar opposite of the stereotypical male dominated world.I felt like there was still unanswered questions about this whole world that Roger is able to cross over into, how he is able to do so and the history of the people at Soulvine Manor. I don't know if it's set up for a future book or not but it would have been nice to have more answers to make it feel like a complete story.Overall it's not a bad book and I think others may enjoy it but it just wasn't a book for me.

This book, was very unique. I love the story line, and how shocking some of the parts were. The writing itself coulld've been better, nut hey it was her first book so good for her! This book overall i give 5 because it had a wonderful story-line, not like a typical fantasy novel. I would recommend it :)
