Summary: (from Amazon) Yara is beginning to understand just how much her life will change now that her Waker abilities have emerged. She has come to terms with the fact that seeing ghosts is part of her life, but she isn t ready to let being a Waker dictate her choices. All she wants is a ghost-free senior year with her boyfriend, Brent, and her best friend, Cherie. But Yara soon discovers that there are more dark secrets in her school s history than just the curse she broke. While an angry ghost makes Yara question everything she thought she knew about spirits, she and Brent learn that there are long reaching consequences to last year s adventures. As new enemies emerge and old ghosts resurface, Yara finds herself in the center of another deadly mystery, and this time she has to contend with the living as well as the dead.

Oh Lani you know how to win my heart over with your books. You always begin reading sequels worried that they won't live up to the first book in the trilogy. Then the second book begins and what a take-off. You completely forget about the quality of the first and begin judging the greatness of the second on its own level. Lani tells a story how I like, that you hurry to turn the page to know what's written on the next. Her characterizations are excellent. You embrace each character and love or hate them depending on their portrayal in the book. She carefully balances each emotion well, so one doesn't overpower the other. It just pleases me to see how much more Lani has strengthen with her writing. She has done her homework and Indelible is our reward.
Indelible is the continuation of Yara Silva story. Yara is now starting her senior year at Pendrell after being all summer in Brazil with her Grandmother Vovo. She is happy to be back and see her friends and her boyfriend Brent once again. Best part about being back is that Thomas the evil spirit that cause all the ruckus last year is safely put away. So they can now live normal lives, except Yara is still a Waker and that won't ever change. So of course she will continue to see spirits everywhere she goes. Yara just ignores them as a temporary solution instead of helping them find their peace like her grandmother has taught her.
Yara discovers one day at Pendrell that Thomas was not the only bad spirit at school. It turns out their is a long history dealing with the founder of Pendrell and his wife and family. Yara gets tricked into the deception and now she has a angry ghost looking to get her. All this while trying to figure out why Brent is becoming ill by the minute. Seems that Yara & Brent will have to deal with last years ramifications. This is not the senior year Yara dreamed of that for sure. Will Yara finally come to terms and use her Waker knowledge or will she hide in a corner and let her friends and family suffer from her choices.
Indelible is the second book in the Trilogy. If you haven't read Intrinsical, I strongly suggest or more like plead that you pick up Intrinsical first and also Indelible. Even better for those who haven't read either because now you don't have to wait for the second book, you can read them both back to back. For those that did read Intrinsical be prepared to blown away with Indelible. With October right around the corner, this is a great book or Trilogy to begin. Those Ghost will surely give you some chills.
Now begins the wait for Inevitable next year. What will take place with Yara and Brent and lets not forget the amazing Vovo.
