Summary
Alyzon Whitestarr thinks of herself as more white mouse than star, until something happens that heightens her senses, enabling her to smell people's feeling, perceive their essences, and see flashes of their lives. ... Then Alyson realises that some people's spirits are afflicted by a strange and ravenous disease which is both sentient and hungry for new hosts...and that just as she can perceive the sickness, so the sickness can perceive her...
Summary
When Alyzon, the ordinary member of an extraordinary family, develops enhanced senses, she becomes aware of an evil virus that preys on people's spirits, and realizes that the sickness and its proponents are aware of her and are a menace to her family
