Rating: ☆☆

Sixteen-year-old Marci Guerrero is one of the best teen hackers in Seattle. However, she’d give up all her talents to know she isn’t crazy.

Marci feels possessed by shadowy spectres that take control of her body and make her do crazy things. While spying on the clandestine group known as IgNiTe, she is confronted by their mysterious leader, James McCray. His presence stirs the spectres inside her brain into a maddening frenzy. Her symptoms and ability to control them don’t go unnoticed by James, who soon recruits her. As IgNiTe reveals its secrets, Marci starts to realise that half the world’s population is infected with sentient parasites, which are attacking and eventually supplanting the human brain.

Now Marci wishes she was crazy, because this truth is far worse . . .

My Review
This was a slow paced book for me. Marci has these moments were feels the shadowy beings taking over. She doesn't tell anyone because she thinks that'll call her crazy. Then one day she finds out that she is not the only one. You would think that is a comforting thought but it's not. The truth of not being crazy is worse than she could have imagined.

Recruited into a group that is working to fight against this alien species, she has to learn to work with the shadow she fought so long against. Oh and there are people in the group you don't know the whole story about some of their member. All sounds very exciting don't it. However, even with all that happening I still could not connect with the story.

I still have no clear picture as to what these beings look like. The book ends in a cliffhanger so maybe it will remedy that problem for me. We all know that eventually I will read book two as my bookish O.C.D. demands I do but it's not something I'll probably run out to get. Sad because I really looked forward to reading this book. 

About the Author
Ingrid Seymour loves, loves, loves to write. She's a young and new adult author. She writes in a variety of genres including romance, urban fantasy, paranormal and horror. She loves pizza and sushi, Sunkist and gum. She believes in vampires, witches, but not zombies (uh-uh, never!) She writes to loud music, daydreams constantly and spends too much time in twitter!!
