Wren Noble is dead—she was born that way. Vibrant, unlike other dead things, she craves those rare moments when her twin sister allows her to step inside her body and experience the world of the living.
Lark Noble is alive but often feels she belongs in the muted Shadow Lands—the realm of the dead. Known as the crazy girl who talks to her dead sister, she doesn’t exactly fit in with the living, though a recent suicide attempt and time in a psych ward have proved to her she’s not ready to join her sister in the afterlife.
Now the guy who saved Lark’s life needs her to repay the favor. He and his friends have been marked for death by the malevolent spirit of a vicious and long-dead serial killer, and the twins—who should know better than to mess with the dead—may be their only hope of staying alive
Lark is able to see her dead sisters ghost. Her sister died when she was born. Now Lark and Wren must help their friends be saved from an evil spirit.

What made me pick this book up: 
The cover, because it was so hauntingly beautiful

What did I like about the cover: 
I like faces on my covers, and the faces on this cover, or face I suppose, since it's the same face. Are stunning. I love the split and the difference in hair and skin color. I think as a female, I tend to gravitate more towards covers with females on them.

What made me read this book: 
It's been on my TBR for a long while now. And I got a copy on my kindle. I told Jenn to pick 3 books for me to read asap and this was one of them.

What did I like the most: 
Okay, so, from the first page of this book I was completely enthralled. The idea of twin sisters where one was a ghost is interesting. I liked the ghost twin (Wren) better, but they were both pretty awesome. The story was different, I was afraid it would be demonic, but in the end it was just ghosts. It had me on the edge of my seat and I just kept wanting to read it. 

What didn't I like: 
There was a few times when the characters got a little whiny. I know they were used to being together their whole lives (Or death in Wren's case?) and the thought of being apart hurt them, but they just kept talking about how they couldn't be apart. Just a bit annoying. But it wasn't bad enough that I didn't want to read it.

Would I read the rest of the series/more from this author?
Yes! I just got the second book on my kindle, and I know Jenn has read her other series, Long Live the Queen by Kate Locke. 

This book was great. I read it quickly, but not because it was a quick read, but because I could not put it down. Characters were good, it was well written and it put me on the edge of my seat.

A Little Snippet:
“My knee struck a tree root as my vision went black. Suddenly, I was in a building at Haven Crest, kneeling on the floor. Blood, thick and clotted like canned cherries, crept down the walls. The lights above my head flickered off then on with a menacing hum.” ― Kady CrossSisters of Blood and Spirit
