Violet thought she’d made peace with her unique ability to sense the echoes of the dead and the imprints that cling to their killers…that is until she acquired an imprint of her own. Forced to carry a reminder of the horrible events of her kidnapping, Violet is more determined than ever to lead a normal life. However, the people who run the special investigative team Violet works for have no intention of letting her go.

When someone close to Violet becomes a suspect in a horrific murder, she finds herself pulled into a deadly hunt for a madman with an army of devoted followers. Violet has survived dangerous situations before, but she quickly discovers that protecting those closest to her is far more difficult than protecting herself.

This Blonde’s Review:
After gaining an imprint of her own Violet has had a hard time adjusting. She can’t sleep or concentrate since all she hears is the music that is now her imprint. She’s being forced to stay with the team or risk her family. They can expect her to show up for her required appointments but they can’t expect her to talk. Violet can’t seem to care about anything and no one else should expect her to either. She wants to be left alone to attempt to get the sleep she can’t seem to find without medication. Until she starts reading her grandmother’s journals.

Violet’s grandmother had the same gift so of course it would be great for her to read what it was like back then. Reading the journals brings some secrets to light that she never expected, things that affect the other members of her team as well. Her grandmother’s journals were really great, they gave plenty of questions as well as some answers. It gave us a chance to get to know the grandmother we had heard so much about in previous books.

I feel that the description on this one isn’t entirely accurate. When I read that someone close to Violet became suspect in a murder I kept waiting for Jay, Chelsea, a family member, or another member of the team would be looked at suspiciously since they’re the ones who are closest to her. Instead it is someone else we have heard about and that she knows but not someone she’s close to.

I really enjoyed this book. I didn’t believe it was the last book in the series based on the way it ended and with so many questions left unanswered, yet I heard that it is the last book. Which is a shame. I would have loved to know more about the things that were left hanging.

If you enjoyed the other books in this series you’ll want to know more about what happens to Violet and her friends. Just don’t expect it to be tied into a neat little bow. If you haven’t read the other books them I’m sure you’ve spoiled so much for yourself but I really recommend them. If you like the idea of a girl who can hear, see, and smell the imprints left behind after a violent death, the way those imprints call to her, and what she does with that information then you’ll love this series.
