Minerva Rus can raise the dead. And it might get her killed.
Minerva’s life has never been the same since the childhood car accident that paralyzed her and killed her best friend, Raven. But when the long-dead Raven reappears in her life, now as a very attractive grown man, she discovers that her photographic memory has the power to bring the dead back to life … heal her paralysis … and shape reality itself.
Pursued by a rogue government agent who wants to eliminate her and her talents, Minerva must learn to control her powers to save herself and Raven. Because if she dies, he dies as well―again.




REVIEW:
4 stars

I was really intrigued by the plot of this story. The concept of bringing the dead back to life isn't exactly new to the book world, but the way Stephen H. Provost wrote his story added an original touch to this concept. I also really liked the diverse main character of the book. It's not typical (at least with books I have stumbled across and read) to have a paralyzed main character like Minerva.

I loved this story. I was drawn in from the first page, and it was incredibly hard to put down after I started reading it. Provost is a talented writer, with characters you care about and a plot that hooks you. This book had everything that I really enjoy in a book: action, mystery, and romance. This book did not disappoint me at all.

I would recommend this book to people who really like fast-paced mystery stories. This is a fantastic story that I think many people who love mysteries would enjoy.
