Micheline Helsing is a tetrachromat -- a girl?who?sees the auras of the undead in a prismatic spectrum. As one of the last descendants of the Van Helsing lineage, she has trained since childhood to destroy monsters both corporeal and spiritual: the corporeal undead go down by the bullet, the spiritual undead by the lens. With?an?analog SLR camera as her best weapon, Micheline exorcises ghosts by capturing their spiritual energy on film. She's aided by her crew: Oliver, a techno-whiz and the boy who developed her camera's technology; Jude, who can predict death; and Ryder, the boy Micheline has known and loved forever.


When a routine ghost hunt goes awry, Micheline and the boys are infected with a curse known as a soulchain.?As the ghostly chains spread through their bodies, Micheline learns that if she doesn't exorcise her entity in seven days or less, she and her friends?will die. Now pursued as a renegade agent by her monster-hunting father, Leonard Helsing, she must track and destroy an entity more powerful than anything she's faced before . . . or die trying.


Lock, stock, and lens, she's in for one hell of a week.

Micheline uses cameras and mirrors to exorcise the ghost that she sees. When they take on a job and do not wait for ba...

Whew! This took me a long time to read, but I actually ended up really liking it. I don't read a lot of horror, as I am a wuss scare pretty easily, but Shutter came highly recommended so I decided to give it a try. And I'm glad I did! Although the first few chapters didn't immediately grab me, I bec...

I felt that part when she was about to take Ryder away. haha. when she was building up his character making us love him more and the scene where her moth...

4.0 Shutter by Courtney Alameda
And they lived happily ever after... Had my life been a movie, like I often wish it was, that would have scrolled across the screen as I flipped the last few pages of this book. Shutter and I started out on rocky terrain. I just wasn't sure we were compatible, and worried we wouldn't go the distan...

4.0 Don't point a gun at someone's face, or my review of Shutter
I haven’t read a good YA horror or ghost story in a while, which is disappointing as its one of favorite genres. I went into Courtney Alameda’s Shutter with fingers crossed that it would be enjoyable. Not only was it enjoyable, but I was hooked and I finished the book the day I started it. The mytho...
