Summary:Sin is coming... Prepare to Swoon.Torn from her native New York City and dumped in the land of cookie-cutter preps, Candice is resigned to accept her posh, dull fate. Nothing ever happens in Swoon, Connecticut...until Dice's perfect, privileged cousin Penelope nearly dies in a fall from an old tree, and her spirit intertwines with that of a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblood Powers. His mission? Revenge. And while Pen is oblivious to the possession, Dice is all too aware of Sin. She's intensely drawn to him—but not at all crazy about the havoc he's wreaking. Determined to exorcise the demon, Dice accidentally sets Sin loose, gives him flesh, makes him formidable. Now she must destroy an even more potent—and irresistible—adversary, before the whole town succumbs to Sin's will. Only trouble is, she's in love with him. What do you do when the boy of your dreams is too bad to be true?

My Review: I was so disappointed by this freaking book. This ending beats "Sweet Far Thing" 's ending by far. In that book, you kinda got the jist of what could happen and you kinda think up an end. This? No, you have no freaking idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unless she comes out with a sequel I will be mad that I took my time to read this book. Maybe I missed something? Does it say where he went? But other than the end, the book was ok, but I think that if Cassandra Clare or maybe Stephine Meyer had written this, it would have been hell of a lot better. -_- But I have to admit, I love the "Sin is coming.... Prepare to Swoon."

Cover/Title: Ah, so sad for a great title and awesome cover to be wasted....
