“Token of Darkness” by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is about a guy named Cooper Blake who survives a huge car accident that the doctors thought should have killed him. When he becomes conscious after the accident he realizes he has a new friend. A girl his age, named Samantha is there by his side and continues to hang around, the problem is that no one else can see her. Cooper tries to figure out how to deal with the changes in his life after the accident and is on a mission to figure out who Samantha is, what she is and how he can help her. He assumes she is a ghost but he starts to learn that there are a lot of things he knows nothing about. A lot of supernatural things.
***If someone were to mention this book to me and asked if I had read it, I would answer “yes” and if they asked me if I liked it, I would shrug. The kind of shrug that is supposed to convey indifference. It wasn’t a bad book but it wasn’t that great either. I wouldn’t say absolutely don’t read it but it wouldn’t be on my list of must reads.
The one thing that does stand out is that the author was born in 1984 and wrote her first novel when she was thirteen. She has written several series and a few more novels. I think thats pretty remarkable…first novel at age thirteen? Wow. So I will try reading one of her series and see what I think of that.
