Blog Tour/Review + Giveaway: Indelible By Lani Woodland

Indelible (The Yara Silva Trilogy, #2)

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.

          My Thoughts: 

     If I say that I loved this book better than the first, that's saying a lot. Because I love her first book. I heard so much about her book and Lani was wonderful enough to send me a copy of her book. So when I was given the chance to read an ARC of her sequel I jumped onto the chance. And I was drawn in immediately. Lani wasted no time to bring on the action. By page 25, she had me gripping my reader and holding my breath. Her scenes are so descriptive it's almost impossible not to visualize, they were so vividly in my head. This book was non stop action and it almost makes me wish I was a waker. Almost. The ability to see and communicate with ghosts is so intriguing to me that I could put myself in Yara's (main character) but only in the story.

     In this sequel, you get a taste of Yara, her friends and her grandmother. And I haven to admit, I really loved that part of the book. Especially the parts with Yara and her grandmother. Lani did a good job describing Yara's grandmother to the tee. You felt her grandmotherly love and bond. I didn't get that chance to meet any of my grandparents. I met my dad's stepmom and when I was around her as a child. I was glued to her. So it was nice the way Lani wrote their relationship. They have an extremely close relationship. And Yara's grandmother did whatever it took to make her granddaughter understand and come to terms with her waker gifts and abilities.

     As far as her friends, they're all very supportive and not once they bat and eye to not help her. They all knew of Yara's waker abilities and they were more than enthuse to help out, even if it meant they'd get in trouble. That's the kind of friends we all need in this world. One that would help you even if it doesn't benefit them. I love love the way Lani's writes. She writes her characters so vividly and descriptive that there is no way you can't get to know them yourselves as a person too.

     Between Yara's encounters with a distraught ghost and an evil ghost. And the grandmother's knowledge and actions towards these ghosts. And her friends all chipping in to make sure all goes well, is definitely a book you should keep up. I can't express enough, that this book is full of action, action, action. There's alot of everything. I encourage those that love a good ghost story to go out and get it. But wait, let's thank Lani because she's sweet enough to give away to ONE lucky winner a copy of her Special Edition ARC. So need I say this is a Good Choice for Reading! 5/5 Stars!

Lani's Bio:

Lani began her illustrious writing career in elementary school after reading the Babysitter Club and Sweet Valley Twins series. Most of her early works were She-Ra inspired, the epitome of girl power to Lani’s school girl self.

She experienced her first romantic relationship with a guy named Gilbert whose heart regrettably belonged to Anne. Though that relationship didn't last long, the unrequited crush continues to this day. That didn't stop Lani's quest for a new love interest, but sadly Mr. Darcy’s heart was also already taken and Pony Boy died at a very young age. While she still has a bad habit of falling for the leading men she is reading about, she did find a way to ease her heartbreak and the long string of rejection. She found a man in her real life whose heart belongs only to her.

After gradating from BYU, she worked as a photographer and background artist in California and can boast two degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon. (When she worked as an extra on E.R. she walked behind Noah Wyle, who was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon.) She enjoys bonfires with friends at the beach, hole in the wall restaurants, chocolate as a cure all, and the word "precisely".
