Waiting on Wednesday (36)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

Radiance (Radiance #1)
by Alyson Noel

Release Date:
October 10, 2010

Riley Bloom left her sister, Ever, in the world of the living and crossed the bridge into the afterlife—a place called Here, where time is always Now. Riley and her dog, Buttercup, have been reunited with her parents and are just settling into a nice, relaxing death when she's summoned before The Council. They let her in on a secret—the afterlife isn't just an eternity of leisure; Riley has to work. She's been assigned a job, Soul Catcher, and a teacher, Bodhi, a curious boy she can't quite figure out.

Riley, Bodhi, and Buttercup return to earth for her first assignment, a Radiant Boy who's been haunting a castle in England for centuries. Many Soul Catchers have tried to get him to cross the bridge and failed. But he's never met Riley...


I love Alyson Noel and this new series sounds fantastic. I love reading about the afterlife and its endless possibilities. And plus, the cover is beautiful! It reminds me of The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold -- both the movie and the book.
