The Necro-Files was a brilliantly written, fast paced,
captivating paranormal fiction. I could identify with the main
character's doggedness as a student seeking part time work to see her
through college and the rejection she faced at her initial efforts to
secure a job. Her desperation made her accept employment at a morgue.
This was the beginning of her adventure into the supernatural world and
unusual happenings in the morgue. I could hardly put the book down as I
wanted to know if she would survive her ordeal at the end. The author C.L. Bledsoe
explores the unknown in a witty, adventurous manner that is not
horrifying, but extremely exciting. I would recommend this book to
anyone that enjoys a touch of the supernatural, mystery and a tinge of
romance. Awesome read!

tells the story of a young girl California and her twin brother in their
final year in High School.It is a tale of self-discovery for California
and I enjoyed taking that trip with her. I initially found the multiple
POVs a little disconcerting but once I understood it, it became
interesting to see things from another character's viewpoint as well. It
gives an insight into the minds of young people growing up in
discordant families and the reasons behind some of the decisions they
make and actions they take. It deals with friendships, betrayal, reconciliation, bullying and forgiveness. It had the right dose of mystery, romance
and suspense in it and I am looking forwards to reading the sequel of
