It's been three months since Alexis helplessly witnessed Lydia Small's violent death, and all she wants is for her life to return to normal. But normal people don't see decaying bodies haunting photographs. Normal people don't have to deal with regular intrusions from Lydia's angry ghost, sometimes escalating to terrifying attacks.
At first, it seems that Lydia wants revenge on Alexis alone. But a girl from school disappears one night, and Alexis spots one of Lydia's signature yellow roses lying on the girl's dresser the next day. Soon, it becomes clear that several of Alexis's friends are in danger, and that she's the only person who can save them. But as she tries to intervene, Alexis realizes that her enemy is a much more powerful ghost than she's ever faced before... and that its fate is tied to hers in ways she couldn't possibly imagine.
Not even in her worst nightmares.
Last in the Bad Girls Don’t Die trilogy.
What I thought of this book.
Poor Alexis just can’t seem to get a break. Because of the things with Aralt in the second book she can down see ghost though her camera or on TV.
At first she thought Lidia was there to haunt her for killing her, though she didn’t really kill her. Then she finds out she really doesn’t want to do her or anyone any harm that it’s some other ghost.
Carter and Alexis have broken up and she has started seeing Jerad but Alexis starts to think that maybe that isn’t such a good idea, then she learns that the ghost who has been harming/killing others is his girlfriend who died. She thinks she is mad because Jerad and her are together, but Jerad thinks she wants them to be together.
With everything that is happening and because Alexis seems to have been at the crime scenes she has been put in the same hospital that Casey had to go visit for ten months. She soon finds out exactly what Jerad’s ex is and what is happening and she has to get out of the hospital and take care of things.
This one was slightly creepy but not real scary. I think out of all three books I liked the first one the best then maybe this one would come in second. I feel really sorry for Alexis because man she has been through a lot from her sister being possessed in book one, to her getting mixed up with a demon Aralt in the second one and now she has a ghost haunting her and hurting or killing those around her. I am really surprised she didn’t end up in a looney bin at the end, even if she was in a place for a little bit. 🙂
Jerad was a creepy control freak and I didn’t like him at all, she was so much better off with Carter and I am glad she realizes that. Though I don’t blame Carter for keeping his distance because of everything that has happened and her not confiding in him.
If you like YA Horror then you might give this series a try as it was pretty creepy but not real scary or at least to me but then I have a higher tolerance for scare than some. 🙂
Though I have gotten use to Johanna Parker narrating this trilogy I still feel that a younger voice would have been better for this YA trilogy. I do like this narrator though and she did a good job.
