Bryan's story of Ellie and Stacey (and a couple others) have kept me going, with the desire to grab the next one as soon as I finished. But when Bryan got to Book 7 - Lullaby - he seemed to have taken a right turn. Perhaps boredom as a writer, perhaps wanting to try something new, perhaps wanting to move Ellie into new challenges. The problem is, he's taken something of a bad turn. In fact, he's taken the literary equivalent of "jumping the shark" with part of the storyline.
I won't give things away - because in general if you've started the series, you'll want to continue. There are a few storylines that - if you're like me - you want to know how they resolve. And his ghost hunting aspects are good fun. But things with Michael, Calvin, and Jacob are of continuing interest. Two of those storylines have become an afterthought. In fact, Bryan seems to be getting distracted by things and not committing to any one storyline. He'll have Ellie wanting to deal with these aspects, then suddenly drops them for many chapters or even until the end of the book. If these are relationships he's established as being important, why then do they disappear so easily, for so long, and with little regard? I've already gotten into chapter 11 of the next book and this frustrating pattern continues.
At the same time he's introduced 3 new characters who seem to have captured his attention and has planted them repeatedly. The problem: they're really bad characters. They are one diminutional, have no real purpose other than to force a storyline and create angst that does not need to be created, serve as a trifecta of antagonists, and have provided even more shark-jumping goofiness. Hey, it's ghost stories, fun, and fiction; but he didn't have to go here. All the situations surrounding these 3 new characters are frankly - in my opinion - dumb, take away from the primary story of Ellie and her life, and add nothing to the broader picture. What they are able "to do" and what they have bought to the table of this story world is weak, annoying, and has begun to get things off track.
In general the stories of Ellie and her world are interesting. They are fun. They are interesting ghost telling. Bryan has either gotten bored with it or is trying to take us somewhere I can't see yet (though, again, 11 chapters into the next book and it's gotten far worse).
I am still enjoying the broader picture and still want to see how he resolves the original relationships in Ellie's life. It's also great fun to read the ghost hunting as the backstories, affects of the ghosts, and the ways Ellie and team resolve the issues is always fun. I am hoping he abandons the 3 new characters and the garbage he's bringing to the table with and through them. We shall see...
Strong story telling and established characters make this an enjoyable book with some scares and interesting moments keeping your attention.
I loved the original characters and stories, but it seems to be going downhill. I don't like the new characters at all or the new storyline with the company takeover.
I'm not sure if I will read any more of these books I used to look forward to.
