Blurb: A paranormal force has lured Ava to New Orleans, where shadows lurk behind every corner and an unknown power has yet to be unleashed.

A dark crime has been committed, and there are supernatural forces involved. Three sisters who whisper "fate" are awaiting the arrival of the Guardian.

** My Review**
I gave this book 3 gears. It had all the elements of a great story. I enjoyed the writing style, and the concept was unique. That being said this book just wasn't for me. I felt confused about the time period, and couldn't easily grasp the several different aspects of the story. There were so many things going on from ghosts who weren't ghosts, shadow people, fates, a serial killer, and more. I am not going to give away anything, I just found it hard to follow, and I am sure other that the right reader will enjoy it.
