"Daisy is surely my favourite teen psychic!"
The creepy town of Nightshade is preparing to celebrate its
200th anniversary on Halloween and there is a lot going on.
Psychic Daisy Giordano, is doing as much as she can to help
prepare for the celebrations but there seems to be more
going on in the small town behind the scenes. Some of the
paranormal residents are being blackmailed, a new school
counselor is sticking her nose into places she shouldn't
and a famous chef has descended on the town and is throwing
her weight around.
Meanwhile, Daisy is also trying to get her dad to
understand she isn't the little girl he was forced to leave
behind six years ago. Of course she realises that he is
having a hard time adjusting to life back in Nightshade
after being held captive by an anti-paranormal group and
Daisy, like the rest of her family, is trying to give her
dad some slack. However when he starts to come between her
and her boyfriend Ryan, she has to try and find a
compromise or she could lose him.
There are a lot of secrets in Nightshade and Daisy has
already uncovered quite a few of them. In this fourth book
in the series there are even more surprises for the
residents of the spooky little town. A hot spot for the
supernatural and for unusual happenings, Nightshade, is the
kind of kooky place you would love to live in yourself.
There is never a dull moment and the people are extremely
There are quite a few different plots to this new
installment but there isn't anything difficult about them.
Actually the plots are interesting and well put together,
using characters from previous books as well as new
characters. At some point I did realise where things were
heading but it still didn't put me off reading this
delightful Young Adult book in one gulp.
I really like this series and look forward to any more
books the author will write about Daisy and her sisters.
Nightshade is a wonderful place with unusual people and
enough action to keep me reading. As well as the usual
paranormal filled mystery there is always a little
relationship problem, and the author finds a good balance
between the two. Not too over the top for younger readers
but definitely realistic and well written.
Daisy is surely my favourite teen psychic! I just hope that
there will be more of Daisy in the future and that the wait
between books won't be as long. Well worth reading if you
need something light and a must read for those paranormal
loving teenagers out there.
