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.
Follow this tour here!

Indelible is the second book in the Yara Silva trilogy, and it begins a couple of months after Intrisical ends.  Yara has spent the summer in Brazil with her wise and eccentric Vovo (grandmother), learning how to deal with being Waker, and the responsibilities that go along with that.  Now it's time for her senior year and she is excited to be back with her friends and her smokin' hot boyfriend, Brent.  She's hoping that since she has "contained" the nasty spirit of Thomas, the ghost that wreaked havoc on her life the year before, that she will have a fun, and peaceful senior year.  That, it seems, is not in the cards for Yara.

Now, after being tricked into making another of Pendrell's ghosts mad at her, Yara has to figure out what is happening at Pendrell.  Add this to the mysterious way that Brent has been behaving, and Yara is in for another year of mysteries, fear, and tension.

I really enjoyed reading Intrinsical, but I think I liked Indelible even more.  Lani grabbed me right away with this story, and it was an exciting and chilling "ghost story" and mystery.  These books are really fascinating because they deal with ghosts and the beyond (or the between) in a way that I've never seen or read before.  I love that Yara and Brent can leave their bodies and connect in the spirit realm (especially when certain forces are trying to keep them apart in the physical world).  I mean, how awesome would that be?  Not that I want the creepy ghosts that go along with it, but.....

I love Yara and Brent, but seriously, I think my favorite character is Vovo!  I love that woman!  I wish I had a grandma like her.  She's pretty kick butt for an old lady!  I also love the romance and the friendships.  It's so great to see such strong friendships as there are in these books.  Yes, we all want love in our lives, but we all want that one friend that we can go to for anything, and we always know we can count on, no matter what.  That's what Yara and Cherie are to each other, and I love seeing that.

Author Bio: Lani Woodland has been an avid reader since elementary school when she first discovered the Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley Twins series. In sixth grade she began writing plays and recruiting (with force when necessary) her friends to act them out. Most of these early works were inspired by She-Ra, the epitome of girl power to her young self.

She graduated from BYU with a BS in Family Science. Lani has always loved scary stories, and has a hard time enjoying any book without at least a little romance in it. She lives in Southern California with her husband, their two children and a large collection of board games. She has worked as a spot-welder, babysitter, janitor, photographer, gymnastics coach, and movie extra. She enjoys bonfires at the beach, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, speed talking, chocolate as a cure-all, and the word "precisely".
