Good Reads Summary:

Lucy Donovan was supposed to have a weekend of fun in the sun, celebrating her upcoming graduation from college. In a split second, everything changed. A drunk driver ended Lucy’s mortal life.

Lucy opens her eyes to a world she never imagined possible and a new destiny: as a Patronus, a guardian of spirits. Adjusting to her new role and abilities while negotiating this confusing realm will test her limits and push her further than she ever dreamed she would go. From wayward spirits who don’t want her help to soul stealing vampires, and even a stuck-up British royal, Lucy must brave them all to save one spirit she can’t bear to lose.

Further complicating her life is an inexplicable yet growing connection she feels to a member of her team, Max, whose mysterious behavior leaves her both confused and intrigued.

Waking up dead was just the beginning of her problems. Lucy’s death is about to become the greatest adventure of her life.

My Tease:

 

“Screaming won’t do you any good,” snarled the voice behind those eyes. It was the worst voice I’d ever heard, and it made me shudder all over. The voice sounded like it belonged to a chain smoking, whiskey drinking alcoholic with a ten pack a day habit and a bad case of laryngitis. Sharp nails raking down a chalkboard would have sounded more pleasant. As much as I wanted to freak out, I knew that would only hurt and not help. I forced myself to stay still for a moment and tried to stop shaking, knowing it would betray my fear. 
“Do you hear me screaming?”
