Welcome back to New Orleans.
Where the streets swirl with jazz and beauty.
Where the houses breathe with ghosts.

A year ago, Rebecca Brown escaped death in a New Orleans cemetery. Now she has returned to this haunting city. She is looking forward to seeing Anton Grey, the boy who may or may not have her heart.

But she also meets a ghost: a troubled boy who insists only she can help him. Soon Rebecca finds herself embroiled in another murder mystery from more than a century ago. But as she tries to right wrongs, she finds more questions than answers: Is she putting her friends, and herself, in danger? Can she trust this new ghost? And has she stumbled into something much bigger and more serious than she understands?


My Thoughts

Getting back to business.

Rebecca had a hectic year after finding out after escaping a near death in a New Orleans Cemetery. Returning wasn’t her first choice, but she is hoping to see the one boy she can’t help thinking about Anton. Helping a ghost or two is apparently in the cards as well, much to her dismay.

The setting was perfect for the mysterious vibe that this story gives off and I was glad to return to it in the sequel. I love how everything is set up in “Unbroken” and that we get to figure out the mystery right along with Rebecca. We are giving bits and pieces of information at just the right pace, wetting our appetite for more before the final reveal comes into play.

Rebecca also has to do some serious soul searching in this book. She meets ghosts that she may or may not be able to trust. As well as having to really face her situation and thing about the danger she might be putting others in. Her character grows a lot and I really enjoyed seeing her learn more about herself and this world where ghosts actually do exist.

I also really liked getting to see a bit more of Anton. He is a hard character to pin down and I’m not sure at times whether he really should be with Rebecca or not, but he definitely adds to the drama.

  1. It has been so long since I read Ruined. I was so excited to find there was finally a sequel. I just haven't gotten around to reading it yet. So many books vying for my time and attention.
    I'm glad you enjoyed it.
