I absolutely love these books but I don’t know why I’m not devouring this series quicker! I seriously need to get a move on them since J.L is so kind enough to send me ebook copies. Though I bought a paperback version for this one to see if I’d read it faster haha. Anyways, Ellie’s past is coming for her and boy does it have me sitting on the edge of my seat! She was just minding her own business, taking care of a haunt for a sweet family that put all their savings into their farm and then all of a sudden her past decided to take over for a second. Boy, was that a shock and a twist I didn’t see coming!
Not only is she worrying about her past but she’s also worrying about her future because her boss just sold their ghost hunting business to another mainstream hunting business. She isn’t for sure that she’ll have a job for long. I’m excited to see where this goes for her because the people from the new company are cocky and if I remember, are playing with ghost who they have no true control over.
Overall, I absolutely enjoyed Maze of Souls! As usual the story had me on my toes! I both savored and devoured this as the details inside sucked me in! If you enjoyed the other books in this series then this will not disappoint!
Ellie and her team are called to a town about an hour out of Savannah. A family had purchased a farmstead in which they hold a corn maze/ fun fall games every year during Halloween and the month of October. Everything is going well until someone sees a creepy horseman who is definitely not a part of the attraction.
Enter our Ghost fighters!
This book was probably my favorite in the series so far. The ghost(s) in this book are palpable and truly terrifying. I love how in each of these books, it isn't just about exterminating ghosts...there is always a backstory to these restless spirits. The atmosphere was painted perfectly for the reader--you can almost feel yourself walking among the corn mazes and backwoods. The characters are extremely well fleshed out and it's easy to become immersed in their stories. A++++++
Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper
By: J. L. Bryan
Narrated by: Carla Mercer-Meyer
I really love this series! This one has plenty of surprises in her personal life that pops up unexpectedly! There is a Halloween time haunting, a man on horseback, a woman that crawls up the stairs to the kids room, and more! These books are always good for a good creepy read....wiggles fingers...
I love the characters, the scattered humor, the spooky humor, the plots, the human aspect they give to the ghost (they are not just ectoplasm you know, lol), and the fun dialogue especially between the two female ghost hunters. They crack me up.
The narrator does an amazing job of performing all the voices and the book!
Ellie continues to wrestle with fevered dreams of Anton Clay, the pyromaniac spirit who killed her parents when she was younger, and he will never stop until he has Ellie too. Working to trap or chase off other ghosts helps to keep her mind off of this one particular ghost. But work also has complications of its own when Calvin, her boss, tells her the sale of the business to a paranormal investigating conglomerate is a go. Now her surrogate father is moving far away, and Ellie feels as if she's being fed to the wolves.
Thank God she still has sidekicks in Stacey, her technical assistant, Jacob, their accountant psychic, and Michael, her firefighter boyfriend. But in this segment, many of the relationships are about to change.
About an hour from Savannah, a family farm near a small town has seen the ghostly activity pick up when they decide to try to make the inherited farm profitable by hosting a Halloween oriented pumpkin patch, corn maze, and haunted woods, turning the once sleepy property into the latest in agri-entertainment. But the ghosts are not happy about the hundreds of roaming strangers or the family occupying the farmstead and interrupting their nocturnal activities - and things become so dangerous the family has to close up shop. Ellie, Stacey and Jacob definitely have their hands full with this one, and with so many ancient ghosts Ellie begins to wonder if this will be a haunting the spirits will win.
Like I said, I enjoyed this story more than the last one because we once again were brought back to Ellie's personal struggles with the mystery surrounding the loss of her parents, the ghost of Anton Clay, and the question of what will happen to her now that Calvin has made the sale of his business official. We are nicely led along as the mystery unfolds by showing the reader instead of resorting to too much telling.
However, to a weirdo like me who reads too much and who knows too many things about history, the mystery was very easy to deduce. And the other situation (sorry, can't say anymore without giving something away) was so obvious from the start that I couldn't believe Ellie or Jacob didn't pick up on it at all, what with Jacob being psychic. In other words, there was little here that didn't turn out as expected. But I still enjoyed the story and was rather freaked out by how a couple of things were portrayed. Shiver me timbers!
There was also a sense that this story was rushed without fully fleshing out some of the characters (particularly the family and that whole dynamic) as in previous books, situations that weren't adequately investigated, etc. But the biggest issue I had with this novel is that editing appears to have been quite rushed. I was very surprised at some of the more basic mistakes such as words missing, transposed, or the wrong word used (like bad instead of bed for one). There were also two very glaring continuity issues that stuck out. On one page, we're told Ellie heard back from Grant and that the property was too far away to be part of the Savannah area historical records. But then a few page turns later, Ellie is still waiting to hear back from Grant. Then toward the end, Calvin is driving his specially rigged truck and the next page Ellie is turning the corner and is now driving. Easy fixes, but not up to the standards previously set by this series, and that is the only reason I bring them up.
Did I like this story better than the last one? Yes. As much of the first four? No. Do I wish some of the characters and situations were a little better fleshed out? Yes. But did I enjoy reading the story and getting another little taste of history? Yes. And for that I give this sixth novel in the Ellie Jordan series four stars.
There are scary developments of amore personal matter for Ellie in this book, which left me in anticipation and make me wish that the author could write faster!

This was a lot creepier than some of the other books in the series which I thought was great. It was a nice return to the thing that attracted me most about this series.
I did work out what the story of the ghost was going to be fairly early on which made the fact that the characters didn't get it earlier slightly frustrating, but it didn't diminish much from my enjoyment of the book.
This series is one of a handful that I will purchase any new book in it without even bothering to read the blurb :)
Each story is good and different, but another overarching story ties them together. Read them in sequence and prepared to be hooked.
