I am in love with this book cover! It is very pretty. And I can not wait for this book. Arise is the sequel to Hereafter; which I reviewed here. I simply adored Hereafter, it is such a beautiful love story with an amazing plot line. I want this book more than anything. Can't wait for June 5th :) And omg! Goodreads have a new summary for it too. <3 Do you like the cover?
Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.
Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life...a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price.
Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her.
