Other Information: Debut
Since her untimely death the day before her eighteenth birthday, Felicia Ward has been trapped in Level 2, a stark white afterlife located between our world and the next. Along with her fellow prisoners, Felicia passes the endless hours downloading memories and mourning what she’s lost—family, friends, and the boy she loved, Neil.Then a girl in a neighboring chamber disappears, and nobody but Felicia seems to recall she existed in the first place. Something is obviously very wrong. When Julian—a dangerously charming guy Felicia knew in life—comes to offer Felicia a way out, she learns the truth: a rebellion is brewing to overthrow the Morati, the guardians of Level 2.Felicia is reluctant to trust Julian, but then he promises what she wants the most—to be with Neil again—if only she’ll join the rebels. Suspended between Heaven and Earth, Felicia finds herself in the center of an age-old struggle between good and evil. As memories from her life come back to haunt her, and as the Morati hunt her down, Felicia will discover it’s not just her own redemption at stake… but the salvation of all mankind.
Oh man, Level 2 has some of my favorite story elements compounded in ONE book! Crazy! I am all for rebels overthrowing the powerful, especially when they are ghosts/dead (but not creepy, like zombies). Also, Julian and the whole “dangerously charming” thing? Yeah, I do not think Felicia will be the only one swooning over him (because you know she will!). The only thing that I am not liking about this book is the release date. Getting excited about a book only to see it will be released in 2013 is just heartbreaking. [sigh]
