Kennedy learns the truth about her mother, and the fact that her death was no accident. Now Kennedy needs to take her place in the Legion of the Black Dove. It is a society of ghost hunters that first came together to protect the world from a vengeful demon. It is society made up of five members. Though all the members died on the same night so now the society is in the hands of the next generation, a misfit group of five teenagers. Each with a unique set of skills.
The new members are in a race to find the only weapon that is capable of destroying the demon. They need to use their individual talents by battling pararnormal entities so that they can earn their place in the Legion. Their rightful place. The only exception seems to be Kennedy.
She needs to stay alive long enough to see if she is truly the missing piece of the puzzle. But can she do it without losing her heart in the process?
This is a book that puts a unique spin on ghost stories. The plot is very different and makes for a book that is hard to put down. The world building is fascinating and unique. The characters are interesting and move the story line along very well and with plenty of action it makes for a great read. It is a young adult story that is great for readers of all ages. It will also have readers eagerly awaiting the next book in this series. It has a great mystery woven throughout the book. It does leave some of the story line hanging and with a somewhat of a cliff hanger at the end it still proves to be irresistible. If the other books prove to be this good this is going to be a series of books that will be worth taking the time out to read.
I give this one 5 red roses
