Title: The Girl from the Well.
Author: Rin Chupeco.
"I am where dead children go.
Okiku is a lonely soul. She has wandered the world for centuries, freeing the spirits of the murdered-dead. Once a victim herself, she now takes the lives of killers with the vengeance they're due. But releasing innocent ghosts from their ethereal tethers does not bring Okiku peace. Still she drifts on.
Such is her existence, until she meets Tark. Evil writhes beneath the moody teen's skin, trapped by a series of intricate tattoos. While his neighbors fear him, Okiku knows the boy is not a monster. Tark needs to be freed from the malevolence that clings to him. There's just one problem: if the demon dies, so does its host."
Release Date: 8/5/14.
Why I'm Waiting:
I haven't heard anything about this book, or this author, and the cover of this book isn't really tugging at me. So what DID pull me in? The synopsis! DUH! I haven't read too much about ghosts and souls, but I've been looking for some books to pick up in the fall. The Girl from the Well, sounds like a pretty good choice.
Have you heard of this one? Have you read it? I would LOVE to know what you think about it!
