And it turns out, Eli is a Beckoner, too.Despite her attraction to Eli, the decision to become a Beckoner isn’t an easy one—it would mean giving up her own mortality … her own soul. But if she doesn’t, her best friend will be left to suffer an eternity at the hands of the evil Ceptors, dark creatures that feed on the souls left behind. After all, it’s her fault Rainey is haunting her.Time is running out, and Karina needs to decide: Are love and loyalty worth sacrificing her soul?
Paranormal New Adult? I have to admit I'm pretty excited about this book for the genre alone. I've only up until now read Contemporary New Adult which has been largely hit or miss for me depending on the level of drama. Beckon Me sounds plenty dramatic but in an entirely different way–a paranormal life, death and afterlife kind of way–and that has me eagerly counting down the days until April 13th. Plus you guys all know I'm a sucker for a super hot, swoon-worthy boy. Hello there, Eli. *winks sexily (or creepily, knowing me)*
