2013 BRAM STOKER AWARD NOMINEE FOR SUPERIOR ACHIEVEMENT IN A YOUNG ADULT NOVEL.
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?
What you can't see CAN hurt you.

Ok ok I have I admit I've never read beautiful creatures but mrs. Garcia's work has been recommended to me on more than one occasion. I devoured this book while on the beach on vacation recently. Kennedy waters thought the supernatural world was just make believe that is until a supernatural being killed her mom. Good thing the supernatural dream team is in town scoping things out. Ok ok... Let me just say if there are any fans of the supernatural tv show ,you will love this book. Meet Lukas, Jared (twin brothers), priest and alara the other four members of the legion. Yes you guessed it Kennedy is the missing fifth member, or is she, lol. Only problem is she has no clue what a legion is and she was never prepared like the others were by family members. This is Kennedy's journey of self discovery. She is a young teenage girl with built up aggression and daddy abandonment issues. The legions main goal is to defeat the demon aras, who by all means is a force to be reckoned with. Mrs. Garcia gave her readers action and a little bit of a love triangle. There is nothing like the two brothers fighting over the newbie. Oh how does a girl choose which brother? I loved the secondary characters in this book, all the way from the crazy/sassy BFF to the cutie pie nerd priest. This was a great start to a series and I really enjoyed it!
