Stacey Brown awakens vomiting from nightmares. Remnants of her past, and perhaps future danger, appear in her sleep. But in real life she’s also receiving threatening messages.
I really like this series, particularly how Stacey’s spells are more about the ingredients and how they work together, rather than “magic”. The suspense is psychological as well as the norm, and the characters feel like real people. (Okay, except for Amber and PJ. Having one of them would be fine, but both of them together is just over-the-top.) And there are some seriously screwed-up teens, like the “ghost groupies”. These books are like comfort reads to me, and combine for one of the most underrated series in YA fiction.
