Paramnesia: The Deadish Chronicles by Brian Wilkinson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Book Description : 

​"Brian Wilkinson's debut is an exhilarating celebration of the imagination."
— Scott Carter, author of Blind Luck, Barret Fuller's Secret

Nora Edwards finally has everything she wants out of life, including the boy of her dreams, until one night that dream turns into a nightmare. On their way home from prom, Nora and Andrew are attacked by a supernatural creature called the Revenant that sucks the souls out of the living in order to feed itself. Nora manages to escape from the creature, but Andrew is not as fortunate.

Although Nora suffers loss that night, she gains something as well: the ability to see the dead, including her recently deceased boyfriend. Whether the skill is a gift or a curse is yet to be determined, since those around her assume Nora's erratic behaviour is due to "paramnesia," a disorder in which a person confuses dreams with reality. She's also attracted the attention of the Revenant's masters, who need to preserve the secret of their supernatural existence and will stop at nothing to prevent her from talking. Nora, along with Andrew and her living and dead allies in the Deadish Society, quickly finds herself in a battle for her life—and the souls of her city.


The cover isn't quite pulling you to pick up the book and read but it surely speaks a lot on its own. It's one of these paranormal plus romance stories which a unique concept or ghosts and its energy stuff. Surely, It's quite predictable story which won't bother you much as you'll enjoy as you read. The book has its sweet and funny moments of romance in middle where there's fun between characters.

It was a fun reading something new in the concept of ghosts and paranormal but I felt somewhere the new concept was half baked. I wish there was more details on the villian and how the souls and ghosts worked. This might be a spoiler of sorts but I somehow thought it was conceptually quite relatable with the Bleach anime, where there's a whole soul society concept and afterlife. I thought it would explore the details in paranormal but it felt restricted on the romance and adventure part.

If you are looking for something new and unique in terms of paranormal romance with the female lead then this might be the one you might be looking for.
