Ignite the Shadows by Ingrid Seymour
Sixteen-year-old Marci Guerrero is one of the best teen hackers in Seattle. However, she’d give up all her talents to know she isn’t crazy.
Marci feels possessed by what she perceives as shadowy spectres that take control of her body and make her do crazy things. While spying on the clandestine group known as IgNiTe, she’s confronted by the leader, James McCray. His presence stirs the spectres inside her brain into a maddening frenzy. Her symptoms and ability to control them don’t go unnoticed by James, who soon recruits her and shows her the awful truth.
Half of the world’s population is infected by sentient parasites. They bind themselves to the human brain and replace the pathways for all thoughts and actions. The creatures then morph their hosts into grotesque monsters with extraordinary strengths. Winged, clawed, fanged half-humans become living nightmares. Now Marci wishes she was crazy, because the truth is worse.
My Take: I found this book to be high on action and not giving the reader much time to catch their breath before more action comes up. If you like ya dystopian with a hint of horror you will love this book. The main character Marcie is a hacker along with being interested in a lot of things that normally are related to males but she definately is a girl.
The parasites are aliens that take over their host's bodies and makes them do things that they wouldn't normally do.
I will be looking forward to the sequel when it comes out on August 11th. There is a third book coming out also which isn't titled yet. This triology seems like it is going to be an epic story and world.
Thanks to Chapter by Chapter.com for giving me a review copy of this book in exchange for a honest review
