Review: Arise

Summary:(from goodreads)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

Review: I was so looking forward to this book because Hereafter was my favorite book of last summer. I instantly fell in love with Josh and Amelia's story and just could not wait to see where their relationship would take us in this book. While I enjoyed this book, I didn't like it as much as I thought I would, or even as much as the first book. I often find in trilogies, I never really love the second book as much as the first and last one. The way this book ended I fully expect to love the next book. We're introduced to new characters and friends in this book, some good, some....not so good, but the ride is a fun one. I really liked the change in settings as this book takes place in New Orleans. I'm really looking forward to the next one.
