The Reaping (The Fahllen #1) by M. Leighton

Every hell has its devil. And Carson is about to become intimately acquainted with hers. 

Seventeen-year-old wallflower Carson Porter has always dreamed of being something special, but what she gets isn’t what she signed up for. 

Yeah, a girl’s supposed to change as she gets older, but this is ridiculous! Shiny skin, greener eyes and a run-in with the flesh-eating dead are just a few of the changes Carson has to adjust to, not to mention the arrival of very hot and very dangerous Derek Hrolf. If all that wasn’t enough to turn her once hum-drum life into something unrecognizable, a twin sister that haunts her from the shadows and a wheeling, dealing collector of souls will definitely do the trick. The question is: what will her life become? And what will she become?

My Review:  ☺☺☺☺☺

Wow!! That was a brilliant, although very disturbing, story! I loved every bit of it - from high school drama to the powerful (and intensely creepy) paranormal development! Some parts will have you jumping up to turn on all the lights before you can continue reading. And I don't even want to consider what my dreams may hold after reading this! (Although, I wouldn't mind at all if the incredibly dangerous & absolutely scrumptious Derek was in them!!) I love Carson, too. After all the loss & sorrow in her life she still manages to pull herself up out of the trenches and becomes a bright, shining heroine who loves with all her heart and fights for those close to her. I can't wait to read more of this story!
