If coming to terms with the hereafter wasn’t enough to deal with, Isla suddenly finds herself stuck with Hayden, a gorgeous Brit with a bad attitude and a penchant for throwing her off cliffs to keep her in line. Worst of all, Hayden is her Guide, and until she completes six impossible and totally random tasks to reach her mysterious Destination, she's stuck with him. Isla's major problem, though, is that she doesn't know what reaching her Destination actually entails, and soon the mystery surrounding her new afterlife seems more ominous than any purgatory she could possibly imagine. Now Isla must decide if she'll trust her dark and brooding Guide despite his "bad boy" act, or if she'll risk failing her tasks and facing the unknown alone.
Isla Edison has lived her life convinced that if she’d known what was actually going on when she’d fallen into a coma after her car accident a year before, she would have been a little more cooperative. Of course that theory is quickly debunked when Isla finds that her mind is unravelling. Piece by piece, the progress made by her and her now-ex-boyfriend Hayden Temple while she’d been in a coma only one year earlier, is falling apart, until Isla is back in the last place she ever wanted to end up-- the place in her mind where Hayden can enter to guide her back out of her coma-- The Cycles. But this time, things are different. She and Hayden are estranged, new players are showing up in her dreamscapes that prove to be more threatening than Hayden’s bad attitude, and Isla can’t help but think that if Hayden’s medical procedure didn’t permanently fix her coma the first time, what’s going to make it stick this time around? Failure means permanent death, and now the procedure she thought she understood, changes with every Cycle. Isla must fight alongside the man she hates to regain control of her mind and save her own life.
Sadie Smith was absolutely certain of three things: (1) ghosts were indisputably real; (2) she and her three friends were some of the best (if not the most . . . conventional) ghost hunters in Oregon; (3) her teammate Jefferson Parrish was always the scariest thing in the room—even during a paranormal investigation. In a face-off between supernatural beings and Jefferson's lack of social skills and Tim Burton-esque vibe, there really was no contest.
But ghosts—unsurprisingly—aren't great at helping to pay the rent, so when Sadie and her friends receive an anonymous letter from a mysterious client offering an undisclosed sum of money in return for finding the link between four haunted locations, it's an easy sell. Going on blind faith and a few vague instructions on how to reach their first location, the ghost hunters set out only to see clue after clue falling into place. As they piece together a sinister mystery reaching back to the early 1900s, the group starts to wonder if they're in over their heads, or if they're on the path to unraveling a love story that was buried long ago—and one that should stay buried.
The only thing scarier than disembodied voices and misty apparitions reaching out from beyond the grave, is spending two weeks with your ex-boyfriend’s terrifying and deranged family. When Sadie Smith had agreed to travel to England for her friend’s wedding, she’d thought her free time would be spent investigating abandoned castles for signs of the paranormal. Instead, the threats to her sanity came in the form of a family whose idea of a good time was casually joking about poisoning each other and trying to force their common enemy, Jefferson Parrish, into an insane asylum where they thought he belonged. But even with the glaringly masochistic family trying their best to make Sadie leave town, a hint of truth resides in their many lies. The truth about what happened to Jefferson’s childhood friend who went missing in the woods behind his house when he was young. Even estranged from her boyfriend, Sadie knows Jefferson had nothing to do with the disappearance, and must clear his name with hints coming to her from beyond the grave, before his family succeeds in locking him up.
