    For freewheeling ghost hunter Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. An agent for the Church of Real Truth, she investigates claims of harassment by the undead. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a new “celebrity” assignment while trying on her own time to help some desperate prostitutes.

    If you could sum up Unholy Magic in three words, what would they be?

    Outstanding, emotional, challenging.


    What other book might you compare Unholy Magic to and why?

    I'm not sure that this book really compares to other books I've read, it's very much its own style and tone.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Chess saves Terrible, I could feel her terror and need.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I would say it made me gasp more than cry and this isn't a book that probably would or should make a person laugh.

    Chess Putnam has a lot on her plate. Mangled human corpses have started to show up on the streets of Downside, and Chess’ bosses at the Church of Real Truth have ordered her to team up with the ultra-powerful Black Squad agency to crack the grisly case.

    What made the experience of listening to City of Ghosts the most enjoyable?

    I love that each character sounds like a new actor/voice. Although it is clear that one person is narrating she has done such a superb job of giving each character their own sound, accent and tone it almost seems like it's more than one person.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The continued growth of the characters.


    Which character – as performed by Bahni Turpin – was your favorite?

    I love her characterization and voice for Terrible.

    In a future world under attack from the undead, the powerful Church of Real Truth, in charge since the government fell, has sworn to reimburse citizens being harassed by the deceased. Consequently, there are many false claims of hauntings from those hoping to profit. Enter Chess Putnam, a fully-tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for nailing human liars and banishing the wicked dead.

    If you could sum up Unholy Ghosts in three words, what would they be?

    Amazing, unusual, unexpected


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters have real problems and real issues, they have so much more depth than many of the characters in books of this genre.


    What does Bahni Turpin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is amazing! She makes each voice its own and gives each character a clear personality which is pretty unusual from what I've listened to so far on a lot of audiobooks. I hear her pronunciation and voice now when I'm reading the books.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scene between Chess and Terrible in the bar.

    MacKayla Lane's ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland's shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets. In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh - a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the world of the Fae and of Man.

    Story

    I have to agree with many other reviewers here as to the narrator. She sounds much too old to be MacKayla Lane and what she does to Jericho Barrons is rather unforgiveable. He is described as a large and very vibrant man but she makes him sound like a tiny withered old man. I really wish these would be re-done with other narrators and am looking forward to the final two books where the narrators are different.
