Young Adult, Dystopian, Paranormal Fantasy
My name is Kyara, and I am a banshee.
My job? Bringing the dead to the other side.
I expected to become a healer...
…But fate bestowed me with a curse.
Cause, yeah. Being a Banshee is a curse.
I'm hated by my friends and family, and I'm kind of stuck in the Realm of Silver, the last place I want to be.
But if I don't accept my job and take souls to their next stop, well, things will get bad fast. The wicked ones will drown the world in darkness, while the rest? I don’t even want to know.
What I really want is to gather the strength I need to become who I want to be.
Is it even possible to do my job with all this pressure from... everybody?
Prepare for an epic adventure!

Kyara comes into her powers after turning sixteen. Thinking she was to become a healer, only to find out that she is something else is really hard on her and her relationships. This is really a fantastic coming-of-age story in a dystopian world setting. I really felt for Kyara as a character. To be different, bullied, and shunned is difficult, to say the least. She had amazing growth and maturity that made this story a great read.
This was different than what I normally read, but it was 100% a good change of pace. Kyara is like any typical girl and very relatable. The challenges she faces with her destiny, like basically being outcasted, were predicament, but the story was still entertaining. It was an enjoyable read and is definitely a one sitting read!
This was such an interesting story. I felt it started a little slow but picked up about 10% in. They girls are getting ready for the “selection” which they think is predictable. Kyara thinks she will follow her mom and be a healer but fate has a different idea. She is thrown a curveball and thrust into a war that she was left unprepared for. You will be pulled into this story and end up not being able to put it down.
