I don't want to say anymore and give out spoilers. I know it kept me hooked,and a couple of times my mind played tricks,which is to be expected reading a wonderful book of this genre in the pitch dark,the only light the glow from my kindle. When someone can write a book that gets you going to the point of hearing your own "bumps in the night",that is an author! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading a wonderfully spooky,suspenseful book that gets your heart racing and makes you look over your own shoulders a couple of times. In this day,it is so hard to find a good horror,anything! But,this one was for me. Thanks JL I absolutely loved it! Off to get the second one ,'Cold Shadows'. And as always,to my fellow readers......HAPPY READING!!!!! :)
Having read something else by this author in the past and not loving it, I was worried this would turn into another failed read for me and I just didn't want that. I wanted something fun and creepy. Different and lovable. I guess you could say, I wanted a lot but was expecting very little.
With a setting set in Georgia and ghosts galore, I opened this with trepidation but excitement as well. I was so in the mood for a good ghost story.
I have always admired those authors that can write from the point of view of a gender other than their own. It must be hard, challenging even, to be in the head of someone completely different from your own norm and yet, Bryan pulled it off beautifully. Ellie was fierce, strong, brave and tough and you could even say a tomboy at heart but she was still soft heartened and kind as well. In fact, the thing I loved about her most, was that she was so normal. An average every day person doing a very dangerous job that is anything but average or normal.
There were times while reading this that I had to stop and look around me to make sure no one (i.e. read “ghost” here) was in the room with me. I was so thankful I started this during the bright sunny day. I think if I would have started this at night, I would have been in trouble. I'm not sure I would have been able to sleep at all. Certain scenes in this book were down right creepy (hello scary dark asylum!) and I loved it.
Overall this was a fabulous start to what promises to be a very action packed, creepy series. I loved every single minute of this book and I can't wait to read more. I can finally see what all the fuss is about.
Now on to the review.
I love ghost stories, but not those ones where a person falls in love with a ghost, or where the ghosts are all just nice little spirits that need a shove off to wherever they go. Ellie Jordan was great in that regard--It was a thoroughly modern ghost story, which is always at heart, a mystery. Who are the ghosts and why are they here?
Ellie Jordan and Stacey are called in to help a family who have bought a huge mansion. Their little girl is being terrorized by a ghost. So Ellie and Stacey go to their aid. But nothing is as simple as it appears and they have quite an adventure getting rid of the ghost and making the house suitable for human habitation again.
The writing was clean and very easy to read. While I guessed most of the twists well in advance, there was enough danger and fascinating tidbits to pull me through the story (and not do housework so I could read it) right to the end. The narrator is Ellie and her voice is very down-to-earth and practical. I liked her enormously, and not just because she wears thick glasses just like I do. Stacey was a little poppet who didn't know what she was getting into, this being more-or-less her first job. And towards the end, they drag in Jacob, a psychic who also doesn't know what he's in for.
The story was gripping, if a little predictable, and a very, very fun read. I'll be definitely getting the rest in the series. While I tend to measure everything against Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House," there are, after all, only one of those and while this lacks the literary flair of Jackson's work, this story was a lot of fun to read.

Nicely done. There was a few times when I found myself actually getting a bit jumpy from this book. And I liked that!Read more
