Description-

  • Only two weeks ago, life was all too predictable. But that was before I saw my first ghost. Now along with my supernatural friends Tori, Derek, and Simon, I'm on the run from the Edison Group, which genetically altered us as part of their sinister experiment. We're hiding in a safe house that might not be as safe as it seems. We'll be gone soon anyway, back to rescue those we'd left behind and take out the Edison Group . . . or so we hope.

    From the Trade Paperback edition.

Excerpts-

  • Chapter One One


    AFTER FOUR NIGHTS ON the run, I was finally safe, tucked into bed and enjoying the deep, dreamless sleep of the dead . . . until the dead decided they'd really rather have me awake. It started with a laugh that slid into my sleep and pulled me out of it. As I rose on my elbows, blinking and struggling to remember where I was, a whisper snaked around me, words indistinguishable.

    I rubbed my eyes and yawned. Dull gray light shone through the curtains. The room was silent and still. No ghosts, thank God. I'd had enough in the last few weeks to last me a lifetime.

    A scrape at the window made me jump. These days, every branch scratching the glass sounded like a zombie I'd raised from the dead, clawing to get in.

    I went to the window and pulled back the curtains. It'd been nearly dawn by the time we got to the house, so I knew it had to be at least midmorning, but the fog outside was so thick I couldn't see anything. I leaned closer, nose pressed to the cold glass.

    A bug splattered against the window and I jumped a foot in the air. A laugh sounded behind me.

    I whirled, but Tori was still in bed, whimpering in her sleep. She'd thrown off the covers and was curled up on her side, her dark hair spiked across the pillow.

    Another chuckle erupted behind me. Definitely a guy's laugh. But no one was there. No, strike that. I just couldn't see anyone. For a necromancer, that doesn't mean no one is there.

    I squinted, trying to catch the flicker of a ghost and saw, off to the left, the flash of a hand that was gone before I could see more.

    "Looking for someone, little necro?"

    I spun. "Who's there?"

    A snicker answered me—the kind of snicker every fifteen-year-old girl has heard a million times from jerk boys.

    "If you want to talk to me, you have to show yourself," I said.

    "Talk to you?" he said in an arrogant high school quarterback voice. "I think you're the one who wants to talk to me."

    I snorted and headed back to bed.

    "No?" His voice slid around me. "Huh. I figured you'd want to know more about the Edison Group, the Genesis experiments, Dr. Davidoff . . ."

    I stopped.

    He laughed. "Thought so."

    The four of us—Tori, Derek, Simon, and me—were on the run from the Edison Group after discovering we were subjects in the Genesis project, an experiment for genetically modifying supernaturals. My aunt Lauren had been one of the doctors involved, but she'd betrayed her colleagues by helping us get away. Now she was being held captive. Or so I hoped. Last night, when the Edison Group tracked us down, a ghost had tried to help me . . . a ghost who had looked like Aunt Lauren.

    We were supposedly in a safe house owned by a group opposing the experiments. Now a teenaged ghost showed up, knowing about the project? I wasn't about to banish him, however tempting it might be.

    "Show yourself," I said.

    "Bossy little necro, aren't you?" His voice slid behind me. "You just want to see if I'm as hot as I sound."

    I closed my eyes, pictured a vague male form, and gave a mental tug. He began to materialize—a dark-haired guy, maybe sixteen, seventeen, nothing special, but with a smarmy smile that said he thought he was. I could still see through him, like he was a hologram, so I closed my eyes to give him another pull.

    "Uh-uh," he said. "You want more, we gotta get to know each other a little better." He disappeared again.

    "What do you want?" I asked.

    He whispered in my ear. "Like I said, to get to know you better. Not here, though. You'll wake your friend. She's cute,...
