It was literally a dark and stormy night when I read this, a perfect night for a ghost story, and in spite of the fact that I was new to these characters, I was immediately pulled into the book. The world building is spectacular, even without the full background of the previous series. This author has a smooth writing style that does a great job of setting the scene and evoking emotions. The book reminded me a great deal of the Mercedes Thompson series by Patricia Briggs (pretty much my all-time favorite urban fantasy series), both in style and with how similar Emma/Mattie is to Mercy--two intelligent, kick a$$ heroines who aren't truly human. Emma just has to deal with ghosts, reapers and Fallen Angels instead of werewolves, Fae and vampires. 😀
With a fascinating world, a wonderful cast of characters, a plot that kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat, plus humor, love, fear, pain and a touch of romance, this was a story that owned me from first page to last. I'm definitely going to be keeping my eyes open for more in this series. Ghosts stories aren't usually high on my paranormal TBR list (I usually prefer shifters or mythology inspired stories) but this one just made me reorder my priorities as I'll be going back to read the Ghost Files books--I'm thinking I should save them for closer to Halloween, but like any great Halloween treat, it's going to test my willpower to wait. 5+ stars
And she did not disappoint in this first book. Can’t wait to get my hands on the next one!
Keep’em coming Apryl!
I would recommend reading the series from the beginning, it helps with knowing the rest of her friends and relatives. She meets new aquantences who try to help.
Action packed , intrigue throughout the book.
One of those books you won't want to put down until the last page.

I found the reaper at the beginning of each chapter was a little childish, I know it is a YA, however that little detail could have been left out.
This is the first book I have ever read by Apryl Baker, her series ghost files is widely loved on Goodreads.
Emma is such a strong character growing up in foster care, with the abilities of a reaper. If that wasn't tough enough she nearly died last year reaping a particularly difficult ghost.
I found it hard to read this book because there was obviously a bigger event in Emma's life that I have not read. I think there must be a book prior to this one but I cannot find it unfortunately, if you can please comment below so I can add it to my review for others.
I have grown to really like Emma, she is a strong, persistent young woman, not letting her abilities prevent her from achieving a degree in psychology, with the added perk of being able to communicate with the dead effectively.
The haunting in this book is creepy and very well done. I really enjoyed the references to actual TV shows, for example Ghost adventures was used a lot. I found Apryl grew the plot throughout, gradual but effective. The description, twists, and investigations are fantastic.
I enjoyed the friends family dynamic, all there for each other through thick and thin. There is never a dull moment, each chapter revealed something new in Emma's life as well as in the ghost investigation...... Doc isn't just a close friend after all and with her half brother suddenly turning up, everyone becomes extremely suspicious.
Even though the book was very well done, I enjoyed reading it but I wasn't hooked. Perhaps It is because it is not like my regular books. I would still recommend this book. And I may look into her much loved series the ghost files.
I really recommend that you read the ghost files before this series as you may feel a little confused with some things that are mentioned and it will help you to get the feel of Emma aka Mattie more and what she has been through.
I loved this book, didn’t take me very long to get through it either. I really miss the Malones though and really hope they make an appearance in other books.
This story was well written and so glad that Emma helped the soul eater to move on. These are hands down my favourite books and ones I will read over and over.
As much as I'd like to stay and chat, I'm about to start the next one.
So TTFN 😊 ENJOY 😈.
