Some birds cannot be caged, and I’m one of them.

In 1925, eighteen-year-old Ameerah Arrowood is murdered in an insane asylum. She finds herself transported to a dreary realm that turns out to be a recruiting station for the dark spirits. With animosity in her heart toward humanity, she decides to join them.

For the next ninety years, Ameerah possesses soulless humans, living a hedonistic, mischievous and sometimes vengeful existence, but now she’s seeking salvation so she can crossover and save her lost love who is stuck in the lower world.

Ameerah enlists the help of her dark spirit friend Derek, who is straddling the line between Heaven and Hell. She tells him how it all began, weaving between historical timelines to now, hoping to gain understanding about why her parents betrayed her and wanting to get rid of the guilt weighing on her heart. In the end, the unexpected unfolds, throwing Ameerah a curve ball which changes her forever.

Review:

Ameerah starts out her tale when she was 18.  She was in the time of the flapper, speakeasys and prohibition.  But, when you come from a wealthy promininent family like hers you shouldn’t be a flapper.  As her parents learn more about Ameerah they decide she must go away to be “fixed”.  When the horrible happens Ameerah becomes a dark spirit.  She chooses this life so that she may still experience all the feelings of the world while she inhabits humans who have no soul.  This is Ameerah’s way of being until she falls in love.  What happens after that will change Ameerah forever.

This was an enchanting tale.  The reader really gets caught up in Ameerah’s tale.  Her life is full of tragedy and pain.  A person could relate to why she chose to do what she did.  Vengence is particularly prominent, but when her heart is broken yours will be too.  Rebekkah Ford does a phenomenal job weaving a story that engrosses the reader.  You will be sitting on the edge of your seat while you try to anticipate what will happen with Ameerah next.  If your looking for a change in your paranormal reading experience you will want to pick this book up.
