Olivia is a teenager living with PSS/Psyche Sans Soma/A ghost hand, but she is not alone. Though it is rare, there are other people her age with this condition and it's not just limited to the hands. It could be a leg, a nose or someplace more private. People with this condition are looked down upon. Not surprising. It's seems to be a natural thing among humans, to hate and want to destroy anyone who is different. Olivia soon discovers that her ghost hand can do amazing things, like reach into your soul and pull things out of you. This kind of ability doesn't go unnoticed and a group of PSS haters are hot on her tails. With the help of a few friends, Olivia must defy all odds to keep those she loves alive and prevent herself from being captured.
I've been trying to come up with all sorts of fancy words to describe how much I loved and enjoyed reading this book but I find myself at a lost for words. There are twists and turns like you wouldn't believe. Secrets that you'll never see coming and a love that will turn you into a puddle of goo. I heart this book and cannot wait to read the second. Until then, it's going to be very difficult to get it out of my head. Even now I'm still lost in the pages. Thinking about the story. Wondering about what other events this author has in store. Ghost Hand was delicious and I ate it all up in one sitting.

Coming April 2013…
In the aftermath of a battle that forced Ruby to flee the safety of the guardian angels, she settles into a small town, hoping to blend in and forget about the ones she loved. It isn’t until Hunter stumbles across her working in a bar and a well-timed email from Ivan Aleksandrov that she realised she could go back to Sage Sanctum—for a few days, at least.
Out for revenge, Lucian will stop at nothing until he has Ruby for himself, but he isn’t the only one that needs her. The council, a group of gods/goddesses have a mysterious hand in Ruby’s return to Sage Sanctum and Mr Aleksandrov is eager to find out what it is.
Destroying Lucian is the least of her worries when Ruby comes face to face with Eli De Luca, the love of her life. It seems her departure has affected him more than she thought it would, but his frustration with her isn’t strong enough to hide the electricity that crackles relentlessly between them.
Determined to end her very real nightmare once and for all, Ruby fights the biggest battle of her life, one that affects not only her, but everyone involved.
