Indelible (The Yara Silva Trilogy, #2) by Lani Woodland
Rating: 5 Snowflakes
Absolutely Amazing!! If you loved Intrinsical (The Yara Silva Trilogy,#1) you will LOVE Indelible (The Yara Silva Trilogy, #2). Ms. Woodland has hit a grand slam with Indelible. I will try to make this review as spoiler-free as possible. It will be difficult due to the fact that it was so good, I could just ramble on and on about it. So, here I go...
Yara has spent her summer with Vovo in Brazil. It takes practice to develope the skills and insticts needed to know how best to help a spirit cross over. Three months of Waker training, Yara was ready to be back in the arms of her boyfriend, Brent (who by the way, is outstanding in Indelible). Here is a simple quote to wet your taste buds..."His velvet lips found mine again. He was the oxygen I had been deprived of all summer and I willingly kissed him back."
Back at Pendrell Academy, all seniors attend a recruiting dinner in hopes of being awarded an internship position. From this point forward the story takes off without haste. There are new characters, new ghosts (scary, angry ones at that), new plot with intricate twists and skillful details, lots of action, suspense and plenty of romantic moments.
It is amazing to watch the development of Yara's character grow and ascend into this strong woman. Not only do we see her grow, but the relationship with Brent was deeper and more developed. I loved the fact that there are so many more "memorable" moments throughout Indelible. I am serious when I tell you I have 6 pages of notes written because I surely did NOT want to miss anything or forget pieces of this AMAZING story.
Vovo was a backbone in guiding Yara through her trials and tribulations. Facing her biggest fears, Yara figures out what her true calling is. From beginning to end,I assure you, this story will leave you in awe.
All notes aside, After reading Indelible, Lani Woodland has reserved her spot on my "Most Favorite" Author list. I admire a writer who can handle intense intricate plots and make it come out smooth and desired.
A well deserved Five-Star rating!!
