Undertow (Book 1) by K.R. Conway
Eila Walker is in danger. She and her guardian, Mae, moved to Eila’s ancestral home in Cape Cod after a mystery donor purchased it for her. Little did Eila know that this charitable act would alter her seemingly normal life forever. After a near death experience of being pushed into the bay and almost being drowned by a Mortis, her new friends who all have secrets themselves, M.J., Ana, Raef and Kian explain about her past and her future. The Mortis (soul-less humans surviving off the life-force of others) are trying to kill Eila, the last Lunaterra (the only thing a Mortis fears).
The plot has twists and turns with plenty of teen angst, humor and romance. The characters are well-developed except I was hoping to find out more about the bitchy Nikki Shae and her PomPom Mustang Gang. Maybe in the next book.
