Body & Soul: 04/27/13

Body & Soul by Stacey Kade is the final book in the Ghost and the Goth series. It's a pretty tightly woven trilogy, so I recommend reading The Ghost and the Goth and Queen of the Dead first.

Alona Dare has been doing her best living in the body of Lily Turner. Although she's nothing like the original Lily, she still wants to do what's best for Lily's family, and make the most of her second chance at life.

Will, meanwhile, is trying to do what he can to restore Alona. He needs her as his ghost guide. His investigation, though, puts Alona in danger and leaves Lily with a new driver.

Without going into spoiler territory, I'll just say Body & Soul is a strong and satisfying end to the series. It explores some tough questions about life and love while still having the sassy back and forth between Alona and Will. Both, though, have grown as characters over this trilogy.

Stacey Kade now has a new series, Project Paper Doll, which starts with The Rules (2013).

Five stars
