Now, lonely and frightened, she has come to live with the father she barely knows and his new family in tiny False Harbor on Cape Cod. For Cassie, the strange, unsettling dreams that come to her suddenly in the dead of night are merely the beginning. Very soon, Cassie Winslow will come to know the terrifying powers that are her gift. And in the village of False Harbor, nothing will ever be the same.

Anyway, the similarities between the two books are fairly obvious, in that the protagonist, 15-year-old Cassandra "Cassie" Winslow, loses her mother in a car crash in California and is consequently sent to live with her estranged father and his new family in False Harbor, Massachusetts, a setting that gives "The Unwanted" its somewhat Puritan/witch trial charm. It's here that a triangle of psychic power is reawakened between Cassie, Eric Cavanaugh (her 16-year-old neighbor), and Miranda Sikes (the local bag lady/witch who's been haunting her dreams lately). Soon Cassie becomes aware of powers she never knew she had--powers that are dangerous enough to kill. ("Carrie," anyone?)
"The Unwanted" is certainly a must-read if you're a Saul fan and/or enjoy supernatural horror. This is one of many good books by him.
Cassie WInslow is six-teen year old, typical teenager, trying to find herself in the world. After a terrible accident her mother is killed and she is left to live with her fathers family. though her mother may be gone, her memory lives on. Now Cassie must also cope with visions of another woman who she feels a very tight connection with. When she moves in with her father, she finally meets the woman in her visions. Only to find out that their time together will be short-lived.
Along the way she meets another person who seems to have to deal with much of the same stuff she herself was once dealing with. Cassie's life now seems full of sorrow, and everyone around her keeps getting hurt, now she must find out the reasons why. What she finds out will ultimately lead to her demise.
This is a very good book for those who enjoy reading about the supernatural. It is a page turner, that you won't want to put down once you start reading. I rate this book as five-stars.
