2. Ninth Key
4. Darkest Hour
The RLS Angels are out for blood, and only Suze can stop them--since she's the only one who can see them. The four ghostly teenagers died in a terrible car accident, for which they blame Suze's classmate Michael... and they'll stop at nothing until he's joined them in the realm of the dead.
As Suze desperately fends off each attempt on Michael's life, she finds she can relate to the Angels' fury. Because their deaths turn out not to have been accidental at all. And their killer is only too willing to strike again.
Suze is back and ready for more ghost ass-kicking. She was able to help "Red" in the previous book, clear his name, get out of a tough situation, and get closer to Jesse. Suze and Jesse have finally gotten to a point in their ghost/mediator relationship where they are able to talk and have fun with each other. Suze is learning new things about Jesse, his past, and why he is still stuck in the real world. Jesse has also learned new things about Suze, like her habits, her likes/dislikes, and has gotten to know her on a personal level. I love that Jesse and Suze have a thing going on between them, but they both know that it can't last forever. Suze is real and Jesse is a ghost. How can they possibly be together?
Reunion, Suze is caught between the ghosts of
four teens (The RLS Angels) who died in a car accident and Michael, the boy at
her school the ghosts blame for their deaths. It is an all out war between the
ghosts and Michael. They want revenge and they will do anything to get what
they want. It doesn't help that Suze is in the middle of it all. With the help
from Jesse, Suze sets out to figure out what really happened the night of the
crash. Will Suze be able to help Michael or will she be caught between this war
and get hurt?
Overall, a good book. However, I felt like the plot was a little slower and there could have been more action scenes. But One thing I did like was the fact that Jesse and Suze seem to be getting closer. I really want to see them together, but the fact that Jesse is a ghost complicates things. I can't wait to see how Cabot turns this love story around and to see how she can make a ghost and a human fall in love.
