Gr 8 Up-When Sunshine Griffith turned 16, she moved from her home in Austin, TX, to an old, haunted house in Ridgemont, WA, with her adoptive mother, Kat. Sunshine then discovered that she was a luiseach, one of an ancient race of creatures who protect the human race from dark spirits and help dark and light spirits safely move on to the afterlife. Her abilities have now been fully awakened, and she has learned to navigate the spirits who surround her with the help of her birth parents, Aiden and Helena, who are powerful luiseach themselves. In this third installment, McKenzie continues to portray Sunshine as a relatable, strong, and likable heroine as she keeps readers on the edge of their seats with one unexpected dark twist after another. Teens follow Sunshine's struggles as she works to uncover a dark prophecy, fights demons, and faces the harsh reality that she may be the savior of the entire human race. Can she maintain her normal life as a teenager, as well as her relationships, now that she is "the luiseach, the one who is destined to save humanity"?

Booklist Review
Sunshine Griffith battles for her life, the lives of those she loves, and the future of the entire human race in this conclusion to the trilogy, drawn from a YouTube series. Sunshine's relationship with her boyfriend/protector, Nolan, continues to evolve as she grows in her powers to connect with the dead. Readers will be rewarded with everything they expect: epic conflict, heart-pounding emotion, and a conclusion that leaves the door open a crack. This campy paranormal romance will be in demand by fans of the franchise; and, with a TV show rumored to be in production, interest in the series may spike.--Booth, Heather Copyright 2010 Booklist
