Amelia—still caught between life and death—must fight for every moment of her relationship with the human boy Joshua. They can hardly even kiss without Amelia accidentally dematerializing. Looking for answers, they go to visit some of Joshua’s Seer relatives in New Orleans. But even in a city so famously steeped in the supernatural, Amelia ends up with more questions than answers…and becomes increasingly convinced that she and Joshua can never have a future together.Wandering through the French Quarter, Amelia meets other in-between ghosts, and begins to seriously consider joining them. And then she meets Gabrielle. Somehow, against impossible odds, Gaby has found a way to live a sort of half-life...a half-life for which Amelia would pay any price. Torn between two worlds, Amelia must choose carefully, before the evil spirits of the netherworld choose for her. |Goodreads|

Why am I waiting on these?
These books not only have beautiful covers but their stories both sound too captivating not to covert! Hereafter is on my bookshelf and I'll definitely make time to read it before Arise releases. I'm excited about the continuation of the series because it is a very unique story line. The Selection is a 2012 releases that I absolutely cannot wait for! It sounds so thrilling and magical but dark and twisted at the time. Luckily the wait isn't too long. This one is certainly going on my wishlist!
