Kami Garcia. Little, Brown, $18 (320p) ISBN 978-0-316-21017-1
Garcia (co-author of the Beautiful Creatures books) begins her first solo YA series, the Legion, with a frenetically paced paranormal thrill ride. Seventeen-year-old Kennedy Waters is the ordinary daughter of an ordinary divorced mother, but that all changes after Kennedy encounters a ghost in a graveyard one night, while looking for her runaway cat. It rapidly becomes apparent that the lives of Kennedy and those close to her are very much in danger. With little reliable background on what’s happening to her or what she is up against, and no one but strangers to fill her in, Kennedy comes across as a shallow bundle of nerves for a substantial portion of the book. That said, the reality she is living is a page-turner: five kids marked for death and on their own, trying to outwit a demon with a grudge. That two of them are gorgeous twin boys goes a long way toward reconciling Kennedy to her new normal. Light romance and excitement for fans of the supernatural (or the show Supernatural, at least). Ages 12–up. Agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House. (Oct.)
