Series: The Yara Silver Trilogy #2
Author: Lani Woodland
Publication date: September 27th 2011
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Source: Review copy
Yara is beginning to understand just how much her life will change now that her Waker abilities have emerged. She has come to terms with the fact that seeing ghosts is part of her life, but she isn't ready to let being a Waker dictate her choices. All she wants is a ghost-free senior year with her boyfriend, Brent, and her best friend, Cherie.
But Yara soon discovers that there are more dark secrets in her school's history than just the curse she broke. While an angry ghost makes Yara question everything she thought she knew about spirits, she and Brent learn that there are long reaching consequences to last year's adventures.
As new enemies emerge and old ghosts resurface, Yara finds herself in the center of another deadly mystery, and this time she has to contend with the living as well as the dead.
After spending the summer in Brazil, Yara is blissfully reunited with Brent and her friends having been apart from them for three months at the beginning of Indelible. They aren't able to relax for long when the angry ghost of Pendrell Academy's founder's wife begins a new mystery to solve and attaches herself to Yara.
Yara is closer than ever to the spirit world, closer than most Wakers, making her more powerful but also putting her in more danger. The fact that she isn't quite ready to let go and fully embrace being a Waker rang true with me and was so realistic - I can completely understand where she's coming from, especially at her age. I don't think anyone could expect her to just accept it right off the bat, not even her grandma.
Yara and Brent have to be one of the best couples in YA fiction, if not the best. I think it's so cool that they share an important secret which allows them to understand each other in ways someone else couldn't. They're mature for their age, and there's actual substance to their relationship. They're completely refreshing.
I must admit while the beginning of Indelible sets up the plot of the book nicely, I worried it wasn't going to be as addictive a read as the first book, Intrinsical. That didn't end up being the case at all - the action soon absorbed me, and I was on the edge of my seat, unable to put this book down.
I loved Intrinsical, but Indelible blew me away. Just when I thought I couldn't love the characters more than I already did, Woodland proved me wrong, and I've never been more happy to be wrong. Indelible is that magical.

About the Author
I've been an avid reader since elementary school. In sixth grade I began writing stories and recruiting (with force when necessary) my friends to act them out. I've always loved scary stories, and have a hard time enjoying any book without at least a little romance in it.
