Synopsis:
Sixteen-year-old Marci Guerrero is one of the best teen hackers in Seattle. However, she’d give up all her talents to know she isn’t crazy.
Marci feels possessed by what she perceives as shadowy spectres that take control of her body and make her do crazy things. While spying on the clandestine group known as IgNiTe, she’s confronted by the leader, James McCray. His presence stirs the spectres inside her brain into a maddening frenzy. Her symptoms and ability to control them don’t go unnoticed by James, who soon recruits her and shows her the awful truth.
Half of the world’s population is infected by sentient parasites. They bind themselves to the human brain and replace the pathways for all thoughts and actions. The creatures then morph their hosts into grotesque monsters with extraordinary strengths. Winged, clawed, fanged half-humans become living nightmares. Now Marci wishes she was crazy, because the truth is worse.
She’s infected.

REVIEW:

God this was a thrilling ride! The book reaches unique themes in an original shout-out to young adults, IT-ists. Marci is a good heroine whose point-of-view is reliable and good. I am happy that after many books which kind of disappointed me, I have met this heroine who made my day.
As a IT-student, I could relate well to her. She gets a star from here.

The writing is beautiful. I am not sure if Ingrid Seymour has written before this books, but she looked to me like a fully-fledged author. It's one of these cases in which the book and the author mind-blow you instantly. Two more stars please.

James, oh, James. I needn't comment here anything. One more star.

The finale was a bit, I do not know, I did not quite get it. But I won't spoil a thing and let you find for yourselves. Ignite the Shadows is unique and thrilling. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

FOUR STARS
