I never believed in ghosts. Until one tried to kill me. 
When Kennedy Waters finds her mother dead, her world begins to unravel. She doesn’t know that paranormal forces in a much darker world are the ones pulling the strings. Not until identical twins Jared and Lukas Lockhart break into Kennedy’s room and destroy a dangerous spirit sent to kill her. The brothers reveal that her mother was part of an ancient secret society responsible for protecting the world from a vengeful demon — a society whose five members were all murdered on the same night. 
Now Kennedy has to take her mother’s place in the Legion if she wants to uncover the truth and stay alive. Along with new Legion members Priest and Alara, the teens race to find the only weapon that might be able to destroy the demon — battling the deadly spirits he controls every step of the way.
Synopsis from 

The synopsis sounds very straightforward - girl finds out about paranormal world and teams up with others to destroy a demon and probably rescue the world. Knowing Kami Garcia however, it won't be that simple. And I'm very happy about that.
I was captivated by the Beautiful Creatures series Garcia wrote with Margareth Stohl and I'm looking forward to see how she fares on her own. The synopsis doesn't tell too much and the title is intriguing, for I can't imagine how it fits the story. However, what captures me most is the cover, with its fire-illuminated face and the one eye staring at the onlooker. It's a bit creepy and quite fascinating, exactly how I would like this book to turn out.

How do you feel about authors with more than one series? Do you expect the story lines and characters to be similar or maybe not similar enough? Share your thoughts and waiting on choice in the comments.
