Sometimes Rest in Peace isn’t an option.
Kacie Ramsey sees ghosts—and it’s ruining her life. Her mother left, her father blames her, and no matter how hard she tries, she can’t keep the ghosts away. Now a new power has emerged. Nightly visions of grisly murders and a relentless predator draw her to the brink of insanity.
When the phantom appears at a party, Kacie’s longtime crush, Logan, saves her. He invites her to join the Orion Circle, a group of supernatural hunters with chapters in schools all over the country. Through the Circle, Kacie learns to embrace her spiritual powers, and for the first time in her life she feels in control rather than a victim.
But the Foxblood Demon will not give up so easily. A demented serial killer in life who trapped the souls of the thirteen children he murdered, imprisoning them within the walls of his mansion. Now in death, he plots his return while drawing power from the pure souls of the children. He recognizes something in Kacie he’s never seen before—a medium powerful enough to provide a vessel for his tainted soul.
Kacie can’t ignore the tortured souls of the children crying out to her every night. With Logan at her side, she will fight the Foxblood Demon. But can they banish this powerful phantom, or will Kacie lose not only her body, but her eternal soul to the monster.


Kimber Leigh Wheaton is a YA/NA author with a soft spot for sweet romance and is a member of Romance Writers of America.

She is married to her soul mate, has a teenage son, and shares her home with three dogs and four cats. No, she doesn’t live on a farm, she just loves animals. Her house is filled with dragons, though she does lament that they are the porcelain, non-flying variety.

Kimber Leigh is addicted to romance, videogames, superheroes, villains, and chocolate—not necessarily in that order. (If she has to choose, she’ll take a chocolate covered superhero!)

Her debut novel, Shadow Fire, is the first book in the Light Chronicles series. Watch for book two, Stolen Moon, a standalone sequel, coming August 2014.

This was an interesting read that I did enjoy. Though it did have a very tame feel to it, unlike many paranormal books I read. Almost like it was meant to be tamed down for maybe younger readers maybe.

But I still did enjoy it, just was a weird feel. The main character I would say is very immature and weak, soft is a word that comes to mind. I did however liked Logan alot. There romantic parts were very mild, but nice.

The idea of this Scobby Do type Team is fun and interesting, even if not exactly original, the different abilities however is a great addition to a traditional ghost hunter group.
Overall this is an interesting  read,

I do recommend this book to paranormal lovers and do look forward to reading the next book.

I give 4 1/2 out of 5 stars

The cover: Well, I am not fond of the cover, again, I get that sweet tame feel from it.I didn't automatically think Paranormal when seeing this cover. If I hadn't found this book for a tour, I do not think while looking at book covers that it would even catch my eye. The cover is done great , just do not feel it fits the book.

I was provided a copy of this book for my honest review.
