When Liv Bloom lands an art scholarship at Wickham Hall, it’s her ticket out of the foster system. Liv isn’t sure what to make of the school’s weird traditions and rituals, but she couldn’t be happier. For the first time ever, she has her own studio, her own supply of paints. Everything she could want.
Then she meets Malcolm Astor, a legacy student, a fellow artist, and the one person who’s ever been able to melt her defenses. Liv’s only friend at Wickham, fellow scholarship kid Gabe Nichols, warns her not to get involved, but life is finally going Liv’s way, and all she wants to do is enjoy the ride.
But Liv’s bliss is doomed. Weeks after arriving, she is viciously murdered and, in death, she discovers that she’s the latest victim of a dark conspiracy that has claimed many lives. Cursed with the ability to see the many ghosts on Wickham’s campus, Gabe is now Liv’s only link to the world of the living. To Malcolm.
Together, Liv, Gabe, and Malcolm fight to expose the terrible truth that haunts the halls of Wickham. But Liv must fight alone to come to grips with the ultimate star-crossed love.
This is one of the best books that I have read recently.
LIV, Forever is the story of Olivia, a girl who makes her way to the Prestigious Wickham University and enjoys her time there only to be cut short by death.
But Liv's story does not end there. She begins to live again, well, in the afterlife, and begins to understand what happened to her and what happened to the school. She begins to understand that something has been going on for a couple generations now and that there are people out there who she needs to save--and who are willing to help her.
What I really enjoyed about this book is that it was such an easy read. You really would have a hard time trying to put it down because it was quite enjoyable and the story was just well put-together. It's not one of those books that you'll get tired of reading in one sitting because it's too complicated or because it's not really your thing. Whatever your "thing" may be, you'd still get to like this one, for sure.
This is a book that has all the elements a book needs to be great: Great characters, wondrous imagery, a really well-written story, a good plot, plus romance, friendship, suspense and mystery altogether. It doesn't get any better than that.
For a first novel, this was really good.
