The series is a bit different, or at least started that way, because the main character is merely someone with the ability of astral travel That's about as 3-dimensional as you get for any of the characters, though. I decided to give it a second go with book 2, but I'm definit That was some truly awful grammar. I decided to give it a second go with book 2, but I'm definitely done with this series now. The characters are almost all stereotypes of some kind, but even when they start to break away or flesh out from there, it's in a predictable way. I found it more annoying than enjoyable.
I didn't find Zoe nearly as irritating. Oh, she still got her body kidnapped a couple of times, and her soul was kidnapped and controlled, but it was easier to digest. The mystery part still had me saying WTH? There was a group, and a faction of that group, which both groups were originally part of another group that were doing experiments with astral travel and stones, but you didn't realize all the groups were after the stones and Zoe Well, I liked this one better, MUCH BETTER, than the first.

I just can't say. Maybe if I need a Z for a challenge I might. Aug 08, Gypsie Holley rated it really liked it. Awesome and hysterical. I love the way Zoe thinks! I love her new complication, you know the one she really doesn't want to think about, you know, THAT kiss! Awesome again. This leaves a definite cliff hanger and I'm drooling for the next book. Leave me hanging desperately!
And Phaedra only just finished chapter 19 in the next one We have so long to wait, drat!
Oh and quotes, there weren't any, but she had plenty of thoughts that were wicked amazing but to actually get them you woul Awesome and hysterical. Oh and quotes, there weren't any, but she had plenty of thoughts that were wicked amazing but to actually get them you would also have to read around them and I'm not up to writing them so I suggest to just read it. It is well worth the money! Nov 05, S. Zoe Martinique is a wraith, an entity that can switch back and forth from the corporeal world. It appears I jumped into the second book of the series so there are numerous references to events which occurred in the first book.
There are numerous mentions of "hot monkey sex" which Zoe desires which made me think she mu Zoe Martinique is a wraith, an entity that can switch back and forth from the corporeal world. There are numerous mentions of "hot monkey sex" which Zoe desires which made me think she must be related to Stephanie Plum. Although my head is still spinning with Zoe's confusing world, I will read Wraith, the first book in the series, to see if it sheds any light.
Jul 20, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: sci-fi. I am hesitant about rating this book. It was redundant and explained everything using pop references that will date the book. She established certain things that the beginning of the book that suddenly changed at the end.
One example is Zoe's ability to be solid while out of her body. In the beginning she had to really think about it. At the end it suddenly became something she did naturally without thought. There was no lead up to it.
I did really enjoy the characters, the fast pace I am hesitant about rating this book. I did really enjoy the characters, the fast pace of the story and the plot. Dec 18, Amber rated it liked it. I didn't like this book as much as the first one because, frankly, it bored me at times.
Also, the author just throws things into the story, with a by the way, that made me feel like I missed an entire book or 2. I still wish that Zoe would wise up and stop just walking into stupid things to make the plot go along. Dec 24, Tasula rated it really liked it. It's been over a year since I read the first book Wraith in Phaedra Weldon's series about a young woman who can travel out of body. I liked this book a lot, it had some surprises, a bit of sexual tension but no sex , murders,astral travelers, mysterious characters.
There are at least two more in the series, so this book leaves open issues, but that's OK, it ties up the current mystery and leaves you looking forward to the next adventure. Jan 05, Topher rated it liked it Shelves: modernfantasy. So, it had been long enough since I read the first one that I had a tough time remembering all of the details in the series; normally that doesn't happen to me, so I guess something about it was generic enough to blend into all of the other series I read. On the other hand, it kept me entertained while I read it, provoked some thought, and really, that's all that I ask of a fun book.
Apr 20, Eugene Gorodinsky rated it it was amazing Shelves: urban-fantasy. I don't know why the average for this book is so low. The protagonist is a bit annoying when she writes, considering it's highly abnormal for a 28yo to have the written english skill of a 4yo, but aside from that and a few continuity problems which you usually don't notice the book is very interesting.
May 27, Ruth rated it really liked it Shelves: series. Bought this off bargain table for beach read. I didn't realize it was part of a series. Will go back and read the first one. Zoe lives in Atlanta and has special abilities that allow her OOB experiences.
There are good guys and bad guys and sometimes it's hard to tell who is which, but that's what makes it interesting. It was a fun, fast read - a little different than my usual fluff.
Jan 30, Lauren Irving rated it really liked it. It seems to take me at least 50 pages to get into these books. I don't always like the abrupt change in the stream from one book to the next. It got better as I went on. It was very suspenseful and I was never sure what would happen next. Somethings come out of left field in her attempt to keep things surprising. Jun 10, Cathy marked it as did-not-want-to-finish. I tried but gave up after 4 chapters and skimmed a bit of the rest. It's a shame because the story seems interesting and complex, again.

But the style irritates me too much. Juvenile, inane chatter is not entertaining to me. Nov 08, Christine Hayes rated it liked it. She refuses to tell Daniel her secret,and is attracted to Joe,whoknows what she is.
I can't see sticking it out with someone who can't accept your trueself. Sep 29, Daelith rated it really liked it Shelves: read. Still love Zoe's spunk. Hate that I waited 3 years to read this book after reading the first one. Cliff hanger ending. Really need to find the the third book in the series and not wait so long to read it.
Mar 08, Amy rated it really liked it. I like it, I like the whole concept, but I just don't follow this very well. Sep 13, Allie V rated it it was amazing. This book was better then the first one i couldn't stop reading it. Kukulkan's relationship with the eagle and serpents proves his identify with the symbol on the Mexican flag, as seen in the picture at the right.
Read my article about Quetzalcoatl in order to see the Hindu version of the Eagle with a Naga held in its beak. The latter were excellent international shippers and traders, builders and astronomers. Their superstitious enemies thought their accomplishments had to be magic and beyond human ability.
