    1. The Unseen Quartet, by Richie Tankersley Cusick: 1 “Not a Keeper” Star.(BTW: The puppy gif’s are for you VAL. Thanks for the great status updates! ;D)Anypooch I promised to bore you and I shall. So here it is:I’M A SUCKER FOR CHEAP, USED BOOKS.I snap them up for a song at garage sales and used bookstores, carefully group them into visually pleasing arrangements on my bookshelves, stand back and admire them for a minute or two, and (save for a weekly dusting) forget all about them. In sho [...]

    2. Fantastic book! It has everything I want-- horror, suspense, a sprinkle of drama, a tease of intimacy, and the mystery of wondering what one of the characters is. I love the role the rain played in this book. Excellent use of the sense to keep me drawn into the story. It was easy to remember why Richie is one of my favorite authors.

    3. While I was searching the library for Afterlife by Claudia Gray (which totally hurt my feelings because they didn’t have it), I came across this series of books. I was totally skeptical by the appearance but I’m getting a little desperate for a well-written novel without a vampire/werewolf/faery centered plot. Don’t get me wrong, I completely love those characters but hey how many different versions can a girl take? I thought maybe I would find it in this novel. WRONG! To be perfectly hone [...]

    4. I read this book in one sitting, it was very interesting and I couldn't stop reading it!

    5. Interesting read. I started with just reading a chapter to find out my next book to read. Had this book for awhile. After that first chapter I kept going I was into the story wanted to know more where the story was going. Interesting to see more about Lucy and to know more about this mysterious killer. Then of course you can't have a young adult book without tossing in a mysterious boy name Byron. Lucy moves to her aunt's house after her mom dies and she finds herself running and falling to a gr [...]

    6. For a book that I grabbed at random of a library shelf because I just needed SOMETHING to read, I actually wasn't disappointed by what this book had to offer. The book wasn't anything amazing by any means, but it was a fun, quick read. The short chapters made it easy to get a chapter in here or their in between my classes instead of having to force myself to find a stopping point in the middle of the chapter's action and close it.In terms of the character development, I understand when the other [...]

    7. Actually I've read one of these books, really liked the creepy factor (funny I was at an age where I really disliked anything horror/thriller like and yet) and the story, only I can't remember which one of it is (and seeing at the time I just picked it up because it sounded good, I didn't realise til halfway through that it wasn't the first book--I think) so I think I'll actually read this series again, right from the start.Not the world's best novel. Not bad, but could have been better. It's ve [...]

    8. Why did it take until page 215 out of 296 to get ANYWHERE with this plot?!?! There were back-to-back chapters of the same, exact circular conversation. I hate starting a series I don't like because I'm not a quitter and now I have to finish these next three books. We are presented with our mystery box at the very beginning and have next to zero answers by the end of the book. It like a season LOST but 1000x worse. and I really loved LOST and I really did not enjoy this book. I am thankful the fo [...]

    9. Main character Lucy has more problems than good times in this book (heavy on the angst, light on the friends and crushes), and the ending is super-abrupt and not very clear, but it was so fun reading Richie Tankersley Cusick again (I was a big fan in my teens.) But she can do better than this. Try classic Cusick, like The Mall, Vampire, or even her earlier foray into the supernatural, The Locker.

    10. Seriously thoughwhat in the hell did I just read?? There happened!!! I mean, very minimal things happened and it was just character development. Literally every single character was unlikable and I justwas there even any plot? I justwhat was this book even about, because I don't have a dam clue. The only reason I'm going to continue with this series is because I already bought the rest of the books. Ugh. This is going to be painful.

    11. Things that go bump in the night, oh my. At first, I did not like the main character, Lucy. I found her a bit too ditzy, but then the character grew on me and I started to like her. The book hooked me about a quarter of the way through and then the next thing you knew I was done. Will be reading more books in this series.

    12. Ok so this book is totally different than anything I have read before. I read it really quick- less than 3 hours! I was hooked right from the start. There is a lot of strangeness that can't be explained, but I am hoping that I will understand more as I read the rest of the series!

    15. a little slow in the begining but it picked up and thoroughly creeped me out.lol major cliff hanger. The story is told from two perspectives the possible victim and the murderer.

    16. I was skeptical about this series at first, but after truding on, I was hooked. Full of suspense.

    17. I absolutely loved Richie Tankersley Cusick when I was growing up. I think I devoured every book she wrote (with the exception of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer tie-ins). When I saw she wrote a few more books in early 2000 I bought and read those as well.I feel like her stories written in the last decade sort of struggle against modern day accessibility. In the late 80s and early 90s there weren't cellphones which are pretty much the norm these days. So having a character who doesn't know how to u [...]

    18. I bought this book because I simply wanted something quick and cliché. When I started reading, I noticed that it had potential to be something I actually enjoyed, but it fell flat. The plot never developed and the characters were stereotypical and dull. I also don't like how the book ends before anything actually happens. Cliffhangers only work if there's actually a plot to work with. I'm sort of interested to know how things play out, but not interested enough to continue.

    19. I'm not convinced that I like this, but it's intriguing enough that I have to continue. There's a lot of tension, but I don't love the characters or the action. I do want to know what happens I just hope I don't regret it. It's a fast read, for sure.

    20. The main character in this book series is Lucy. The book says that she was courageous ad outgoing until her mother died. After that she gets feelings of uneasy terror, as if being constantly watched. Angela (Lucy’s cousin) is the popular type with an attitude and very reveling clothes. She is mean to Lucy and uses her to get away with breaking her restrictions. Irene (Lucy’s aunt) is very hard working and is often gone. Se doesn’t care for Lucy or Angela’s problems and is very strict wit [...]

    21. This is one of those more unknown book series that definitely deserve a bigger following. It's not like your typical paranormal "romance" thriller It is way darker than that. I read the first book SO many years ago and when I finally decided to finish the series, it was so hard to find the rest of the books because its so unpopular and hidden from mainstream "YA paranormal" books. GREAT GREAT book! None of that wishy-washy paranormal romance nonsense, just a truly terrifying and thrilling parano [...]

    22. It's a pretty good, kinda scary book. It's really for older teens, I think, since it's a little more mature. I read the version where books 1 and 2 are combined together, and I had no idea there are more books after this. These books don't have endings. The second book ends in conversation; The character asks her "who are you?" and then the book ends. Therefore, you MUST have the next book in your hands.It does seem, however, that not a whole lot happens in the books, other than many repeated ki [...]

    23. this was one of the first books I started reading in middle school that heloed my transition into the supernatural genre. it had alot of mystery and suspense that I liked becadue it wasnt obvious at all who the killer and staler if poor lucy. we didnt get a clue to who the mystery person is at all until LITERALLY the last few chapters other the LAST book. which was excellent. im quite oerceptive so I hate finding out who it is three chapters into the book even though it isn't revealled until lat [...]

    24. Lucy's mother has died and she's now living with a relative. That's bad enough but one night she's walking through a graveyard, ends up in a fresh grave and meets a girl who isn't quite dead yet and who passes something on to Lucy.Which is bad enough except that there's some kind of entity that killed the girl that may now very well be after Lucy, a very powerful, perhaps immortal being who has no qualms about killing.Lucy is befriended by a boy named Bryon who tries to warn her about what is go [...]

    25. "The Unseen: It Begins" is a very good book for anyone who wants to read a scary book. The main character, Lucy, has weird events happen to her after she moved to a new town. There is only one person who knows who she is going through, and I think her friend is very cool. I think he is nice because he offered to help Lucy, but he is weird because he followed Lucy around at first when she didn't want him to help her. I gave this book four stars because it kept you interested the whole way through [...]
