You can read the Goodreads summary here.

When Wren loses her first love, Danny, in a horrible car crash, she can't bear to be without him and uses her powers to bring him back to life.  The story of the book starts just after that, when she spends her evenings sneaking into her neighbors garage loft where she's hiding Danny.  Things quickly go downhill after that.

Cold Kiss was a fast paced, quick read made even more of a page turner by the plot.  Wow - what a plot!  Basically, it was kind of like a short, fluffy, not-scary version of Pet Semetary for teenage girls.  And I mean that in a good way because if there's one thing the kids need to learn these days, it's that bringing people back from the dead isn't a good thing.  Thusly, I recommend this book to the female YA readers who love the paranormal and who may be considering using their magical powers to bring someone back to life.

The only downside to the novel that I could find was that I wished it was longer and I wish Wren (awesome name, by the way) and Gabriel had more chemistry.

Cold Kiss will be released in September, so be sure to pre-order your copy.  And thanks to Yara from Once Upon A Twilight for allowing me the opportunity to read and review this book early.  If you found my blog from her site, please follow me with Google Friend Connect to catch all my reviews.
