Before reading this story, however, I highly recommend reading the first two episodes of the "Bloodseekers" series, i.e. "The Vampires Next Door", and "The Monster Upstairs." While those two stories stand alone, the various characters introduced in those two all show up in this one, making it easier to follow the individuals involved as well as the story's context. Without reading the other books, it could be difficult to keep up with all of the characters, their respective talents, and their relationships with each other.
As the series progresses, you meet each Slayer, each possessing a specific talent that's amplified by an amulet handed down from an ancestor. Each character goes through a transformation as they discover their talent, its companion amulet, and ultimately connect with the others. They depend on each other for their respective abilities, whether it's teleporting, telepathy, remote viewing, prescience, or empathy, to name a few, plus there's a synergistic quality to their combined energies which gives them the power required to fulfill their combined mission to destroy the Seekers.
One clever twist besides the fascinating background of the characters is the fact the stories all take place in St. Augustine, Florida, one of the oldest cities in the USA, which has an interesting history. The author includes snippets of the city's historical background in the context of the tale, even providing photographs of various sites where certain fictitious scenes allegedly took place. This story and St. Augustine are so deeply intertwined it's hard to imagine it taking place anywhere else.
Each of the three books includes plot details and characters that enrich the tale, piece by piece, eventually evolving into a complex interaction of characters, cultures, and supernatural circumstances from which they derived. Not only are there the slayers and bloodseekers, but witches, both light and dark, shifters, boggarts, ghosts, humanoids known as the Begotten, and numerous other interesting creatures that create a supernatural maelstrom of competing magic that any paranormal fan will thoroughly enjoy. I particularly loved the felidavian, a giant flying cat, whose backstory would make a great addition to the series, should the author decide to pursue it.
This episode delivers the final Slayer as well as the inevitable confrontation between the Slayers, Seekers, and various other supernatural creatures leading to an unexpected and startling conclusion. Don't miss it!
RECEIVED THIS BOOK AS A GIFT FOR A FAIR/HONEST REVIEW and REVIEWER FOR Bloggin' With M. Brennan.
I love this series Klass has been building and I think it's great for both readers of Young Adult paranormal as well as others. It isn't filled with sex, which I like lol. It is both exciting and intriguing. The Ghost Within was able to keep my attention throughout and once it got going, it seemed to fly by.
I definitly recommend this book and the whole series to anyone looking for something that isn't run of the mill paranormal.
