Reveal (Cryptid Tales #1) by Brina Courtney

Goodreads description: 

Shay could be the key to ending a war that humans don't know exist. Of a race of beings that aren't real, or are they?

Shay Tafford's childhood has been fatherless, filled instead with memories of speaking to the dead. She is forced to hide her unique ability from those living around her. That's why it's been comforting to have Jeremy, a child ghost, as her confidante. But recently he's been absent, perhaps lost as her father is. When Shay meets Hugh, the guy she's had a crush on for weeks, and finds he can speak to ghosts too she's just starting to find a normalcy in her life.
But as Hugh reveals the truth to Shay, about who she really is and about what it is she can do, he erases all chances she had at a normal existence. Turns out talking to ghosts is just scratching the surface of her genetically engineered gifts. Shay learns she may be part of an age old prophecy that could save the entire race of cryptids. But can she?

Mary's Review:

WHAT!?! I thought that I had read every type of paranormal book and I also thought no one could give me anymore surprises......well, I WAS WRONG!  Talk about a good book!! Brina Courtney knows how to write paranormal!

Best part of book: I think Shay is the best part of the book.  True, she is the main character and everything is based around her; however, that isn't always the case in books.  I loved Shay because Brina writes her in such a way that I can honestly feel what she is going through.  The lost of her father, the fact that her dear friend is a ghost, the fact that she is crushing on a guy and the fact that her life is about to turn upside down!  I loved it!  I honestly could not put this book down.

Not so great about book:  This was easy for me ... the ending! Why?!?! Because I need to know MORE!  Thank the stars above Book 2 is already out!! Look our Brina Courtney, you have a new fan =)
