Synopsis from Goodreads:
Ellie Jordan and her apprentice Stacey investigate a house in an elaborate planned community that was only half-built before it went bankrupt, leaving an instant ghost town with only a few residents. The entity haunting this house is a banshee that feeds on sadness and misery.
Unfortunately for Ellie, this is no simple haunting, but just one symptom of the cursed land on which the suburban community was built. The old railroad line running through the nearby woods might just be a conduit for lost souls, including dark spirits will ill intentions toward the living. Ellie soon finds herself facing one of the most complex and difficult hauntings she’s seen in her career.
What I Thought:
The author gave me a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.
This book continues an already great series that I can’t help but love. The author gave me a copy to review and I’m so glad he did. I just can’t get enough of Ellie and her adventures. Every book I find out there’s going to be another one, so it’s like an added bonus each time.
This one involves multiple ghosts and is their most complicating investigation yet. In case you didn’t already guess from the cover and description, there’s a ghost train involved as well. It manages to be creepy and intense and hard to read at night, especially with the main ghost they were originally sent after, the banshee. The ghosts also get pretty physical in this one which is probably what scared me the most.
Ellie and Stacey are a great team, and their men get some scenes in this one again. I liked Jacob, but Michael is definitely my favourite of the two. Firefighter, willing to help with ghosts, with a sense of humour? Yes please. We even get to revisit a client from a previous book that ends up helping with part of the research. There’s more research in general done in this book to figure things out, but it was well done so it never felt like an info dump. You just wanted to know more of what happened and why these ghosts are terrorizing this weird place. I love knowing the back-story to these investigations, it just makes you understand the ghosts so much more.
I can’t recommend this series enough for fans of ghost books, but you seriously need to check it out. It’s probably my favourite right now and I can’t wait for the next one to be out.
