In “Desires of the Dead” by Kimberly Derting, Violet Ambrose is drawn to the echoes of the dead, who long to be noticed and put to rest properly. This specific echo is that of a young boy which draws attention to Violet in a big way and threatens her secretive gift and way of life.

Bravo to Kimberly Derting for creating a sequel that is just as intriguing and suspenseful as the original. The storyline progresses in such a way that one will follow along easily and quickly become engrossed in the book. Kimberly Derting is a prolific writer and I expect much more success in her future.

This book is intended for the Young Adult audience or anyone who appreciates a good YA work of fiction. Those who are equally interested in paranormal and mystery thrillers, as well as romantic fiction will enjoy this book and its intricate combination of each.

It’s my opinion that this series is a must read for everyone. There is so much variety that I’m certain no one will be left disappointed. One of my favorite things about this storyline is actually the echoes and imprints that only Violet can detect. You’ll be surprised that many have been experienced in your own life.   

For anyone who may have missed “The Body Finder”, I recommend that you pick it up now and start the adventure that will have you coming back for more. I anxiously await the next story of Violet’s life and what changes and experiences lay ahead for her.
