After moving to Minneapolis Cecilia is befriended by Isaac and Elsie, siblings who have kept a dark secret hidden about their past for countless years. As her body is taken over by a demonic force, she finds herself an Impa, a rare and supernatural creature who lives off the flesh and essence of her victims to stay alive.
With the bloated bodies of missing teens beginning to resurface, the voice of the ratchet Old Farmer’s voice inside her head begs for “Just One More.”
Consumed in the macabre environment, the urge to feed takes control over not only her body but her soul. Soon Cecilia comes to a realization that giving the voice exactly what It wants will never be enough.
I was really glad I won this book. I have heard of this author before even though I have not read any of her work before. When I read the synopsis I figured it would be something that I would really enjoy.
Cecilia and her family moved to a small town in Minneapolis and we learn that Cecilia is a troubled teen or at least it seems that way with her mother.
When she first sees her neighbor Isaac she is a bit intrigued especially when she is told to stay away from him via his sister Elsie. Isaac and Elsie are not normal but Cecilia doesn't learn this until a bit later on. They are both weird, love to hang out at the place Old Farmer's Road and seem to be on the radar of a P.I.
When Isaac insist that Cecilia is the one she doesn't quite know what that means until she is drinking essence from her first body that will quench the voice within her head saying "just one more, one more." It seems there is something sinister at Old Farmer's Road and it Isaac and Elsie are right at the center and now Cecilia is a part of it whether she wants to or not.
Everything comes back to the legend of Old Farmer's Road and the murders that have been happening there.
Cecilia doesn't want to become what her neighbors are but it seems she has no choice, it is up to her and Derek the brother of Robert who was Impa (you will learn who they are) to stop Issac and Elsie but who will still live, who is truly the worst of the worst between the two, and will Cecilia ever have a normal life?
I have say I was impressed with story being told even though there wasn't a lot of gore or scariness to the book it was very enjoyable and makes you think twice about going into the woods with anyone.
