Sixteen-year-old Marci Guerrero is one of the best teen hackers in Seattle. However, she’d give up all her talents to know she isn’t crazy.

Marci feels possessed by what she perceives as shadowy spectres that take control of her body and make her do crazy things. While spying on the clandestine group known as IgNiTe, she’s confronted by the leader, James McCray. His presence stirs the spectres inside her brain into a maddening frenzy. Her symptoms and ability to control them don’t go unnoticed by James, who soon recruits her and shows her the awful truth.

Half of the world’s population is infected by sentient parasites. They bind themselves to the human brain and replace the pathways for all thoughts and actions. The creatures then morph their hosts into grotesque monsters with extraordinary strengths. Winged, clawed, fanged half-humans become living nightmares. Now Marci wishes she was crazy, because the truth is worse.

She’s infected

My Thoughts:

The author of this book was kind enough to send me an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

This book was CREEPY and I LOVED it!! This book gave me a nightmare and I'm not ashamed to say it, no book has ever done that before.

Marci has been fighting the shadows taking over her body since she was five. They seem to take advantage of her at her weakest, but she has found a way to keep them at bay she just has to keep her mind busy. When Marci meets James the leader of IgNite is when she finds out what's actually going on with her which is way worse than she thought. Marci is infected with a parasite that latches on to the human brain and takes over your body and can also change the hosts bodies into whatever they desire. James is going to teach Marci how to control the parasite. 

I really enjoyed this book I'm not a big fan of sci-fi, but this book has changed my mind on that genre and I'm definitely going to venture more into it. I loved Ingrid Seymour's writing it was fast paced and kept you turning the page. Our main character Marci is such a bad ass, I also loved how she never gave up on fighting the shadows and that she never backed down from a task no matter how hard it was or how terrified she was. One thing I want to point out is the love interest; I loved that Xave and Marci had known each other since they were little and that the love they had for each other had grown over the years and it was not insta-love; it was a fresh breath of air and not seen in young adults books very often. I would recommend this book to anyone! It's such a great read that everyone should pick up.
