Bestselling authors Kelley Armstrong, Vicki Grant, Marthe Jocelyn, Kathy Kacer, Norah McClintock, Teresa Toten and Eric Walters team up to create this series of linked YA novels. Readers can discover all seven Secrets in any order!
Tess has always been tormented by waking visions that make her question her sanity. When the orphanage she lives in burns down, she decides to face her fears and find out once and for all what is wrong with her. She believes the truth must lie with her parents, and so, armed with only an address and phone number, Tess travels to a crumbling mansion in rural Quebec, where she discovers evidence of mistreatment of mental patients. She also makes an unlikely ally and gradually unearths her family’s sad history—and finally accepts the truth about her paranormal powers.
This story wasn’t the best I’ve read from Kelley, but it was well worth checking out!
This book is definitely a mystery. But I am not sure if I would consider it a thriller. There is a mystery to figure out, but only in the last part of the book do things really happen at a faster pace.
Before the halfway point I would also say that there is not much paranormal. But that does have a huge impact on the last half of the book. This book was unusual. It was interesting, but very different from anything the author has previously written but I did enjoy it!
