Review Source: Blog Tour

Khaya’s life, a life the Order say was never meant to be, is thrown into turmoil when she discovers she has a second ability. The Company who employs people like her – with rare and special abilities – insists that having more than one inevitably leads down a dark spiral into madness. So they are watching and waiting, ready to terminate her at the first sign of trouble.

Now, on the run from the Company’s agents while trying to prove her sanity, Khaya realises they are not the only ones she should fear. Angels are working towards her demise as well.

The question that haunts her is this: What did she do that was terrible enough to elicit the wrath of angels? And can she trust the mysterious Derrin, or is he the cause of all her tribulations?

Khaya is living her life as normal as one can while using her power of foretelling. As she continues working for the company a new ability forms, and she then is hunted. Unsure why things are happening she goes on the run with the mysterious Derrin who knows more than he is letting on. Can they figure out how to fix this, or is she doomed to be terminated?

WOW!!!! This book!!! So fantastic! It started off and hooked me immediately. And from there it only got better and better. Honestly this book made me rethink how I've been rating books because I haven't felt this strongly about a book (other than the After Series) in a while. The storytelling was done so well, it's not first person but you feel as if it is. I absolutely loved this. I loved this because it allowed me to follow more characters, feel as if they were all the main character, and have many different stories-that were entwined with one another-to follow! Honestly, I wish so many books were written in this style.

The story---there were SO many twists and turns that I never expected to see coming. Although I mostly listened to this while stuck in traffic to and from work, but I feel as if that heightened my love for it. I'm not one to usually listen to books, but now that I have had this experience I only plan on listening to books from here on out! There were so many times when I thought that I knew exactly where the story was going and then it would flip on me. I found myself gasping often.

Johansson is a seasoned writer, and honestly I have no idea how I haven't picked up one of her previous books. She now has a fan in me! I plan on reading anything she has written or will write! So if you love stories about Angels, Poltergeists and people with special abilities then this book is especially for you.

I grew up in a small town called Ficksburg in South Africa and moved with my family to England aged fifteen.

I then completed my schooling through a correspondence course from South Africa. This challenging time taught me a lot of self-discipline and determination. Qualities that have been invaluable while writing my first novel.

In 2004 I started studying optometry at Aston University in Birmingham, UK and currently I live and work as an optician in Kent.

In 2008, I married my wonderful husband, Tor. He has been such an amazing support and wealth of internet wizardry from when I started writing through to designing a cover for Book of Remembrance, to publishing my book on amazon as well as setting up this website. I cannot thank him enough.

Reading has always been one of my passions. I have fond memories of trawling through the library aged five (yes I was a geek from a young age!). More recently, I found myself wondering about the process writers must go through to complete a novel. I started thinking about how they would go about planning out a story and keeping track of all the various aspects of it. Finally, I decided to try my theories out. I have not looked back since!

I started writing Book of Remembrance end of May 2011 and finished it in December 2011. Since then, I have self-published it as an e-book on amazon. I have also started writing the follow up novel, which is untitled at the moment
