From the Inside Flap
"I know where he is," Bontoc said.
Tom, sweating and sore from working out, hesitated, lowered his shirt and asked, "What was that?"
"Stefan Korzh," the dead man replied. "I know where he is."
Tom licked his lips, tried to focus, and found he couldn't. "Then we have to go there."
Bontoc shook his head. "No. Not yet."
"Then why did you tell me?!" Tom snapped.
"Because," the dead man answered, "I am certain you are planning on striking out on your own, Tom Daniels, and that is a path that would lead directly to your death."
"That doesn't matter!" Tom yelled, his voice continuing to rise. "He needs to die!"
Bontoc looked at him for a moment, then responded in a calm tone, "I do not disagree. He took my life, if you recall, Tom. But in the sense that your own death doesn't matter, then I would have to argue against that. Do you think that Iris would agree with you on that subject?"
The mention of her name was like a bucket of ice water thrown upon him, ripping a gasp out of Tom and silencing him.
"No," Tom whispered.
"And Victor," Bontoc continued, "would he be pleased to bury you?"
Tom shook his head.
"I am pleased that you can see this," the dead man stated, sitting down in a chair. "Your death does not need to be Iris's introduction to grief. And as for Victor, he loves you as a father, and your death might as well be his own. You see him when he is alone as much as I do. The man is, how do you Americans say it, damaged? He will never be whole. He will never love another woman again. Oh, at some point he might meet a woman he finds peace with, but I do not believe he will love the way he did with his wife."
Tom remained silent.
"So, tell me, Tom," Bontoc said, leaning forward, "is your life meaningless to them?"
Tom cleared his throat and answered, "No. It's not."
"No," Bontoc agreed, shaking his head. "It is not."
He straightened up and gave Tom a smile of understanding. "Now that all of that has been said, let us discuss what happened with you in the world beneath our own."
Tom flinched at the memory, but he did as the dead man asked. The words came out haltingly at first, then picked up a normal rhythm for a short time. When he reached the portion of the story where he killed Cane, his words rushed out of his mouth.
Bontoc seemed to have no difficulty in understanding what had occurred, and when Tom finished, the dead man was nodding.
"We must keep our eyes open for Leanne Le Monde, I think," Bontoc said, rubbing his chin.
"I do not believe we have heard the last of her, just as I do not believe we have heard the last of Anne Le Morte."
Tom winced at the mention of the dead woman's name and glanced at his prosthetic.
"Yes," Bontoc said, "it is good that you remember how dangerous she is. If you were to go after Stefan Korzh, you would have to face her and whomever she has with her. And should you make it by her, well, then you would have Korzh to deal with."
"Yeah," Tom grumbled. "Yeah. I know."
"Good," Bontoc said sternly. "Do not forget it."
"I won't," Tom said, his face reddening at the realization of how foolish he had sounded.
Bontoc chuckled. "Do not be embarrassed, Tom. I understand hatred and passion all too well.
Let us speak of something pleasant. Have you decided to go to a cemetery yet?"
Tom grinned at the thought of a cemetery being pleasant.
"Yes," Tom said. "I think it would be a good thing to do. Maybe find someone who needs help getting to where they need to be."
"My thoughts exactly," Bontoc said, standing up. "It is a muscle that must be exercised. A strength to cultivate and build upon."
"Okay," Tom said, getting to his feet. "Let's go do that."
Together they left his room, and Bontoc chatted about the joy of headhunting when he was a younger man.

I read this book straight through. It was at least as good as the first book. I think I may have liked this one better.
The hunt for Stefan continues and he is starting to come unraveled by the constant fear of being hunted. This leads him to beseech his father to call off the doll. I’m really worried about the consequences of this meeting and how they will play out in the next book.
I think what made this book so good is that you get to learn something about the lives and personalities of the victims before the ghost gets to them. Some are innocent, some are bad, and some are just regular folks. One of our lead characters has encountered this ghost before and when they learn the truth about that encounter, one of the core relationship dynamics changes drastically.
Tom is still practicing with his newly found ability with some very interesting consequences. However, he is getting really antsy to go after Stefan and makes Victor promise to go after him once he has dealt with the latest ghost escapee. Bontoc told Tom he knows where Stefan is but refuses to tell him until he and Victor have a better chance of winning, or at least not dying.
The fairy realm only had a minor role in this book, but I think it will be important for the final battles.
As always, be sure you read the bonus chapters. You will find out how the ghost died and why it is so angry at certain types of people.
I can’t wait to see how Mr. Ripley draws all these strings together for the final resolution.
Tom is consumed by his need for vengeance and his powers are growing. Ariana has always loved her father, but she finds that he has betrayed her in the worst way possible. Stefan is becoming more fearful and he'll do anything to have Anne Le Morte called off. Stefan knows if things continue as they are, he'll eventually be ended by Anne.
I have enjoyed all the books in this series and I highly recommend them. I received an ARC for my honest opinion. I've read most of this author's work that's listed on Amazon. If I weren't on the ARC team, I would have read these books through Kindle Unlimited.
This series is pretty much non stop. Each book gets better and better and the villains get worse, as in eviler!! Martha is one of the worst so far and she loves killing. She doesn't want to stop and Victor really has to battle to save people. I do have to say that the author outdid himself with this character. She is evil to the core.
With the further along we get to the end, you can definitely feel the tension getting worse and you feel the desperation in everyone involved. Victor, Ariana and Tom are desperate to stop Korzh, and Korzh is desperate to inflict as much damage as he can. I'm almost scared to read the next one because I can't see where it's going!!
In all, this was extremely fast paced, intense and I flew through it. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the gang, plus Ann, Shane and even Leanne. I've grown to love these characters and grown to love the world the author has created. This author knows how too give the reader chills and this one chilled me to the bone. Mr Ripley can't write fast enough in my opinion.
Thom Bowers once again read this extremely well. He is always clear and has plenty of tones and voices for the array of different characters.
I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.
