I LOVE anything supernatural. I love how Ron Ripley writes with the ghosts and this book is no exception which I did not want to end. I read the kindl..Show More »e version in Nov but enjoyed listening to it so much better. This book is about Shane returning to his childhood home to find his family. Loved the all the characters especially Roberto, Carl, Jerry, and Herman but hated Vivian. My only complaint, too short and want the rest of the series on audiobook. Highly recommend to anyone who loves ghosts, also recommend the Moving in series. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by Scare Street. THANK YOU!
So Shane's back but this time he is dealing with something even worse!! He is asked to help with a haunted lighthouse, which seems easy enough, but it..Show More »'s anything but. This island is riddled with the dead. What could possibly happen to Shane on a remote island filled with the dead?? ;) Well, read it to see!!!!
Here's me thinking that Berkley Street was scary, well welcome to The Lighthouse!! A place that is so captivating, you won't want to leave, well Dorothy doesn't give you much choice!! If you enter her domain, you are there to stay. When Shane gets there, he realises the scope of the problem, but he knows that he will only be there a day or two and some one will check on him, when no one does though, and two couples wind up washed ashore, Shane sees that there is more going on than meets the eye. With people being killed, can Shane figure things out before it's too late!!
Shane is just as awesome as the first book! He visits the Lighthouse as a favour to Detective Lafontaine, otherwise he would have stayed away!! He really grows as a character in this book, he is brave, selfless and does what he needs to in order to survive and help others.
In all, this was terrifying!! Dorothy was truly evil!! Finding out what she was like when she was alive was heartbreaking, but pales in comparison to what she does when she is dead! Lighthouses can be creepy places at the best of times, but add in lots of ghosts, and you have a chilling tale that will leave you wanting to sleep with the lights on.
Thom Bowers really knows how to bring a terrifying tale to life. He ramps up the tension when needed and did a great job with the atmosphere. Really enjoyed his narration and need to check out more from him.

Enjoyed it very much! No struggle to get through. A great sequel to the others in the series! Can be done as a standalone but I would recommend them ..Show More »in order. Great sequel with the ending for more. Keeping it spooky!
Ron Ripley definitely won on the setting!! Sanford Hospital is " A Victorianesque monstrosity with creeping ivy" and it's where Shane is being..Show More » sent for burn treatment following the events of the last book. It's home to more than the patients as Shane soon finds out. The infamous Ward E is home to a nurse who is only too happy to help you pass into the after life. It's up to Shane and a few of his new friends to try to get Nurse Williamson to stay dead, though this may be his toughest fight yet because it's not just the dead that are helping the Nurse, she has some fanatical living beings helping her too. Shane knows how to fight the dead, but it's the living who he needs to fear.
Even when he is down, poor Shane doesn't get a break!! He is trying to recover from the burns he received last time and is sent to this creepy hospital with no other choice than to get the treatment he needs. He is nursing his wounds and his broken heart yet trouble still finds him there! He not only has to deal with the multitude of ghosts, but also the humans who are helping her. He really has a tough time with this one and has a lot more injuries that he will need to recover from now ;)
As I said, the setting for this was awesome. An old hospital is creepy enough, but add in the fresh hell that is Nurse Ruth and you have an eerie, creepy place. Nurse Ruth was horrible. When she thinks your time is up, it's up. She kills indiscriminately, though she likes to think that she does it to ease their suffering. She has been doing it for decades and has a core group of both ghosts and humans who follow her. She is a force to be reckoned with!!
In all, this edition was just as good as the rest. Shane is on the edge and I really hope he rallies both his fighting spirit and health and comes out on top. I feel like poor Shane can't handle much more without breaking!!!! Bring on the next one.
Thom Bowers did an amazing job. He just seems to "get" these books and knows how to read it well. He is easy to listen to and I really need to check out more from him.
