Now why am I so excited for the tour? Well, because I got to read The Unsacred Gift.  And WOW, was it a good read!!!

Here is my Review!!


Title: The Unsacred Gift
Author: C.S. Dorsey
Publish Date: Published April 9th 2012 by Createspace (first published March 30th 2011)

Synopsis:
When Sissy was six, she had her first vision of her sister’s (Misty) disappearance. Her mother (Tina) said she had a bad dream, but not long after that Misty vanished before Sissy’s eyes. No one believed her, so Sissy pretend to act like everyone else, like Misty never disappeared and never existed. For the past fifteen years Misty’s disappearance has haunted Sissy’s dreams. She could hear the ear piercing screams at night of her sister begging for help. Sissy tries to help her, but never succeeds. Sicily “Sissy” Monroe attends the University of Washington and is in her senior year majoring in Psychology. She has all the makings of a perfect young lady, ageless skin, flawless long black hair, full kissable lips and eyes that are shaped like almonds. She is almost where she wants to be in life. But laying deep in the pupil of her eye’s hold something that she cannot get rid of, which interferes with her plans. In addition to the nightmares, Sissy has found that as she gets older her visions became stronger and more vivid than before. Because of the first vision of Misty, and the second of a teacher in high school, Sissy wants no part in another person’s death. For years, Sissy tried to avoid having friends and relationships because she feared their fate. Most importantly she tries to avoid her family. She has no plans of ever going back home to California. When her mother calls her to tell her about her granny’s birthday party, she is reluctant to go. Going back home was not on her list of priorities, but she is going for her mother. Little did Sissy know she cannot run from her past. During her weekend at home, new developments surface. Her mother has been dating (Mark) for the past two years; her grandmother has the same gift she does; an old high school fling (Chris) comes clean about his love for Sissy; and an unknown girl from the grave begins stalking her dreams. Sissy begs for someone to admit her to the hospital, but she can’t get the words out. Her grandmother is the only one who can help her, but even then it’s too late. Two days after her birthday party, Sissy’s grandmother dies. However, it’s no shock to Sissy, because she knew death was coming for her grandmother—leaving Sissy alone once again. But she will soon discover that her sister Misty, the visions, and the dreams of the unknown girl were just a mere image of herself.

The Unsacred Gift is an AMAZING story. I immediately fell in love with it from the very beginning. Sissy’s turmoil throughout the whole story will take you for one insane rollercoaster ride.

Sissy isolates herself because of the gift, or CURSE, as she calls it where she sees people’s death. She is afraid of touch and horrified to be around her family.

I found Sissy’s character to be very strong. It would be difficult to move far away from your family because you are scared to see their death. However, I do not feel that Sissy feels that way about herself. This story has a flowing plot that will definitely grab your attention and make it quite difficult to put down. The ending of this story is “WOW, OMG, Are You Serious? I totally didn’t see that coming!!” type of ending. Yeah, all those thoughts were racing through my mind and I SO was not ready for it to end! It is definitely a great book and I HIGHLY recommend it!!
