Book Description

Seventeen year-old spirit medium Emily Chambers has a problem. Actually, she has several. As if seeing dead people isn't a big enough social disadvantage, she also has to contend with an escaped demon and a handsome ghost with a secret past. And then there's the question of her parentage. Being born an entire year after her father's death (yes, a year) and without the pale skin of other respectable English ladies, Emily is as much a mystery as the dead boy assigned to her.

Jacob Beaufort's spirit has been unable to crossover since his death. It might have something to do with the fact he was murdered. Or it might not. All he knows is, he has been assigned by the Otherworld's administrators to a girl named Emily. A girl who can see and touch him. A girl who released a shape-shifting demon into the mortal realm. Together they must send the demon back before it wreaks havoc on London. It should be a simple assignment, but they soon learn there's nothing simple when a live girl and a dead boy fall in love.

2.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete story December 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise was interesting (think Ghost Whisperer set in early London) with a 17-year-old who can see ghosts. There could have been a number of good stories about how she and her older sister (who cannot see ghosts but arranges the seances) work with the living and the dead.

Alas, the story takes an unlikely romantic turn when this young medium sees a very real-looking ghost. She can even touch him (why he is different is never explained) and almost immediately falls for him. Then she becomes embroiled in trying to find out what happened to him. Naturally, the ghost falls for her too.

It was frustrating that we never find out how or why the ghost was killed, why he can be held and kissed, or who was responsible for his death.

A demon was accidentally released by her sister and gets involved with the ghost's remaining family, but the mystery of who is controlling the demon is not discovered.

This young medium also has a different father from her sister but doesn't know who he is or why her mother was with him and that is not answered either.

The book was like the first several chapters of a story without the end. Nothing was completed, no loose ends tied up, no satisfying ending. I don't mind a good story that I can tell leads to a sequel, but this is not even a complete story.

Very well written book, loved the storyline. Usually I can guess the endings but not this time ... I will be sure to read the other books in this series. I'm sure their will eventually be a happy ending, I'll just have to give it a little time. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written paranormal book October 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book in one sitting. It is so well written. I enjoyed the characters very much.
I will read the next installment soon.
The cover doesn't do this novel justice. This is a sweet period piece, a delightful read.
Thank you, C.J.Archer. Please keep writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth every one of the 5 stars July 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A book worth every one of the 5 stars! I do not normally read period novels but I have now fallen in love. The author amerces you directly in the story with no pomp and circumstance allowing the story, characters, and descriptions to speak for themselves and carry you away with them. Not only does it have the normal love with seemingly insurmountable obstacles, but mystery and faced paced action.

The characters are believable and appropriate for the period and the author has captured the culture and attitudes of London in the 1880's. The story was fast paced but with enough meat to the writing that it flows smoothly. It also answers one of my long time questions about ghosts. How can ghosts move objects but not people?

This has made my list of books read in one night (just because I couldn't bear to put it down).

2.0 out of 5 stars In love with a ghost! Really? November 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It seems that the majority of the book is devoted to describing the main character's romantic feelings for a ghost. Totally absurd and an obvious parallel to the Twilight series. The story line drags on forever. I am glad it was free on the Kindle and I surely won't be reading the sequels.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. November 25, 2012
By teawhip
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting book. Probably geared more towards late teens to young adults. Plot kept my interest with lots of action and mystery. Left a plenty open at the end, so naturally you'll have to read the other books in the series if you want the answers to all of the questions raised throughout the book. A good read for a free book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good ghost story! April 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Emily Chambers is a spirit medium who gets involved in two mysteries. With the help of a ghost named Jacob she solves one mystery but the mystery of how Jacob died is still unsolved. Emily is a charming character with a good heart and I very much liked her. If you like a good ghost story mystery then this book is for you.
