Strange things have been happening to Daire Santos.
Animals follow her, crows mock her, glowing people appear from nowhere.
Worried that Daire's having a breakdown, her mother sends her to stay with the grandmother she's never met, who lives on the dusty plains of Enchantment, New Mexico.There Daire crosses paths with Dace, a gorgeous guy with unearthly blue eyes.
Her grandmother recognizes Daire's episodes for what they are - a call to her true destiny as a Soul Seeker, a person who can navigate between the living and the dead.
Guided by her grandmother, Daire must be quick to learn how to harness her powers, because Dace's brother is an evil shape-shifter, out to steal them.
Daire must embrace her fate as a Soul Seeker and discover whether Dace is the guy she's meant to be with . . . or if he's allied with the enemy she's destined to destroy.

Review by wyvernfriend
There were times when I wanted more and times when I wanted less but overall I found this quite interesting, Alyson Noel has done some research on shamanism and it showed. The characters were a little thin and I didn't see the build of the romance in the story but I'm curious to see how this is going to develop.Daire Santos is having episodes, seeing things, lashing out, which lands her drugged up and under a threat of a psychiatric institution until her grandmother steps in and offers help, help that will enable her mother to continue with her job. Then Daire discovers that her grandmother may have a key to what's going on with her, it may just be natural and it needs training, but can she overcome her natural scepticism (which was only glimpsed not worked with much) and find a way out of her problems that doesn't have her drugged or institutionalised?Interesting twist on the usual paranormal story, curious to know where it's going to go from here.
