Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up High school senior Kendall Moorehead has strong psychic abilities, so when she has a vision of her own death, she is understandably shaken. Two months later, Kendall finds out that strange things have been happening at the mayor's house, and she and her ghost-hunting friends agree to investigate. What follows is a wild ride on the paranormal train, complete with ectoplasm, channeling, and an out-of-body experience. In the end, Kendall is able to tie up important (and unpredictable) loose ends with the spirit guide in the mayor's house, her family, her boyfriend, the vision she had of her own death, and her spirit guide. Unfortunately, a spotty plot, uneven characters, and outdated teen slang make this book hard to take seriously. Consider only where previous Ghost Huntress books have been popular.

Format: Paperback
I've read the first two books in the Ghost Huntress series and was so excited to get my hands on the third. It drew me in from the first sentence (It's not every day you have a premonition of your own freakin' demise.) and kept me intrigued for all 230 pages. Kendall Moorehead, who's earned a spot in my heart as my favorite seventeen year-old ghost huntress, is at it again, investigating the paranormal activity that comes with the rich history of Radisson. This time, however, she's up against one that's not playing around. As if fighting for her life ("It's not your time") isn't enough, Kendall makes discoveries about her roots that change everything she's ever known. Of course, the humor and sass that Marley Gibson is famous for comes shining through on each page, making it a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Seventeen-year-old Kendall Moorehead and her friends have had much success with their ghost hunting. But every time Kendall believes she is getting a handle on her awakened powers, something else pops up. Recently Kendall has had a premonition of her own death. Though she is a bit scared, Kendall refuses to let it stop her from living her life. Jason Tillson, her boyfriend, seems to be more worried about it than she is.

Then the mayor, Donn Shy, asks Kendall to investigate the manor in which she and her stepdaughter live. The stepdaughter, Shelby-Nicole Holt, has been hearing weird footsteps in the attic since they moved in. Emily, Kendall's spirit guide, warns her not to do it. The bitter spirit within the mayor's manor is dangerous.

The investigation is put on a brief hold when tragedy strikes. Taylor, Kendall's best friend and the twin sister of Jason, goes home to find her mother on the floor unconscious. With their mother in the hospital and their future uncertain, Taylor stays with Kendall's family and Jason stays with a buddy until their father can be reached in Alaska. Until their dad can fly down to them (in Georgia), the group will focus on the mayor's ghost problem.

On the side, Kendall and another of her best friends, Celia Nichols, begin researching Emily. The spirit guide would never reveal anything about herself to Kendall and she has decided it is time to learn how, when, and why Emily had died.

**** FOUR STARS! For those who have not read the first two books in the series, you will not find yourself lost. (I know because I did not read them.) The author has done a terrific job of revealing all the characters without too much fuss.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I missed Book 2 of Kendall Moorehead's Ghost Huntress saga, but I didn't feel terribly lost reading Book 3. This is because Kendall's voice hasn't changed--witty, wry, girl-power to the ultimate.

Also refereshingly dynamic but still quirky are Kendall's friends: Becca the Goth and former beauty queen who got over some of her issues (apparently) in Book 2 but is still edgy; French-spouting Taylor Tillson, the refreshingly nice popular girl; Kendall's boyfriend and Taylor's brother Jason, who is still mega-overprotective; and uber-cool estoterica and science geek Celia Nichols. Supporting characters like sensitive Loreen Woods and, in particular, Kendall's mother Sarah seem to have their own journeys and arcs. Sarah is somewhat more accepting of Kendall's psychic abilities--Kendall does readings and healing at Loreen's shop, which would have been unthinkable in Book 1.

However, Kendall's inciting incident of seeing her own death upsets her already unconventional world of Radisson, Georgia. And when the mayor--another terrific female character--reports a disturbing haunting in the mayoral residence, Kendall may be on a collision course with death. Plus, deepening mystery surrounds Kendall's suddenly erratic, always overprotective and increasingly nervous spirit guide Emily.

The series' strength remains its characters, as I mentioned. The adults still come off as dimensional individuals who don't have to be rescued by the know-it-all children. And for a series on the paranormal, the books take a groudned approach by explaining that TV ghost huntign shows are not reality, that not everything is paranormal, and, in the words of Fatehr Massimo, that sometimes ghost hunting doesn't have to be the be-all and end-all, even for a psychic--and that a psychic still needs her friends, and has bad moods just liek everyone, especially if said psychic is a teenager.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Marley Gibson's GHOST HUNTRESS series is clearly catered towards teenaged girls, and there sure are plenty of snogging and references to current fashions and the latest hip songs. But damn if I haven't gotten invested in 17-year-old Kendall Moorehead and friends and the things they get up to in Radisson, Georgia. Me being a guy, maybe it just took some time for me to acclimate to the girly-centric vibe. In the first two novels, Kendall's chatty first person narrative tends to go down with stream of consciousness regularity and that was a bit distracting. This thirder, GHOST HUNTRESS: THE REASON, is the shortest volume and finds our newly awakened psychic more on point with her storytelling. Nearly three months ago (at the end of the second book), Kendall envisioned her own death, and I'm guessing things like that will hone your focus.

But nothing's happened yet, and Kendall is settling back into what passes for her normal life. She's acclimating more and more to her new home in Radisson. She's made really good friends. Romance with her awesome (but overprotective) boyfriend, Jason, is going swimmingly. And other than that one very disturbing premonition, her psychic talents are helping restless ghosts to find their peace and move on. She and her Ghost Huntress crew are doing good things. Life is pretty sweet. But...

Every now and then Kendall gets the jitters, jumps at the slightest noise. It's not helping that her lifelong ghostly guide Emily is keeping mum right now, keeps making obfuscating remarks. Another worry is that, with the popularity of the Ghosthuntress website, the team is finding itself traveling further and further from home base, and this is really eating up gas money.
