Ghosted by Kristine Schwartz

Title: Ghosted
Series: My Shattered Soul Saga #1
Author: K. Schwartz
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance
Published: October 12, 2017


After spending a summer learning 'good values' through hard work at her first part-time job her parents insisted she get, Blaire Stevens is looking forward to spending some much needed time letting loose with her best friend, Grace, as they dance the night away. But her perfect night of freedom turns deadly in one blinding, soul-shattering moment of destruction.

When Blaire awakens, she finds herself in an extremely plain hospital room, and her doctor has the worst bedside manner possible as Blaire searches for answers on what happened. When it all comes rushing back to her, she finds herself on the other side of the barrier… where an entire realm of ghosts maintain the balance between life and death.

Blaire must learn what it takes to be Ghosted, where everything is different. But as she begins to learn her place in this new realm, not everything is as it seems. Aiden Briar, her emerald-eyed wallflower from that fateful night her life came crashing to an end, comes with a past that will haunt Blaire for the rest of her eternity… if she even survives that long.

My Review:
This is my first book by Kristine Schwartz and also the first book in the My Shattered Soul Saga. The book is written for Young Adults but I enjoyed  and am no longer a YA. The characters were very well written as was the whole story.

Seventeen year old Blair goes to the last big party of the summer. The night is supposed to be filled with fun and friends. On the way home the fun is unexpectantly cut short along with Blair's life when a van t-bones her friend's car on the passenger side where Blair is setting. 

Blair wakes up in a hospital room. Not knowing where she is or what is going on. A doctor comes in and informs Blair she is what is called Awakened and ghosted. Blair was killed in the car accident but has been one of the chosen to be Ghosted. Blair is told she will be given a coach to teach her how to learn the ways of the ghosted. 

As Blair is learning her way around her new Realm, she also learns that she was Ghosted before, and it just so happens that her new Coach and all of her new friends were her friends in her past death, even the man she was deeply in love with is among the group. Blair has no memories of her past ghosted and feels kind of strange knowing all of her friends know her better then she knows herself. 

As she is settling into her death, there is someone out to end her death for good this time. Blair and her friend must find a way to save Blair and the rest of their group as well. 

Kristine Schwartz was born in London, Ontario, Canada, where she quickly developed her love of all things books and stories. After dipping her toes into the writing community by reviewing everything she could get her hands on, she began developing her first book. She published that story, Ghosted, in October of 2017, and she quickly began work on further works to offer readers. As a mother to four, her days are consumed with loving her children, freelance editing, and plotting and writing her next works.
