From the author of 'Beautiful Creatures' and full of action and suspense, this is a great read for anyone who loves a paranormal thriller!Kennedy Waters life is turned upside down when her mother dies suddenly and inexplicably, and she is forced to either live with her estranged aunt or go to a boarding school. On her last night at her home, some unseen force tries to kill Kennedy. Luckily for her, the brothers Lucas and Jared have been watching her, and came to her rescue. They invite her to join them and their team of teens - who all have a special ability - in their fight against a demon who is threatening to destroy the world as we know it. The team tells her that she is, by birth, part of what they call 'The Legion'. A group of people with special abilities, who are tasked with protecting the world from demons. But Kennedy is still struggling with the loss of her mother and her home, and is having a hard time fitting in with the rest of the kids, especially as she feels she is a burden, and has no special ability of herself.What also doesn't help is that she finds herself drawn to sweet, caring Lucas, but also cannot deny the sizzling chemistry between her and Lucas' brother, Jared. - Melodie

I never believed in ghosts.
Until one tried to kill me.

When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, she doesn't realize that paranormal forces are responsible--not until mysterious identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into her room and destroy a deadly spirit sent to kill her.

Kennedy learns that her mother's death was no accident, and now she has to take her place in the Legion of the Black Dove--a secret society formed to protect the world from a vengeful demon. A society left in the hands of a misfit group of teens with unique skills: Jared, combat trained, with a temper to match; Lukas, rogue hacker and code breaker; Alara, whose attitude is as powerful as her voodoo protections; and Priest, an engineer capable of making a weapon out of a soda can.

As the teens use their individual talents to battle paranormal entities, they earn their rightful places in the Legion--except for Kennedy, who is left wondering if she is truly one of them.

Can she stay alive long enough to find out--without losing her heart in the process?

Protect Yourself.
What you can't see CAN hurt you.
