When Aurelie Harcourt's father dies in debtor's prison, he leaves her just two things: his wealthy family, whom she has never met, and his famous pen name, Nathaniel Droll. Her new family greets her with apathy and even resentment. Only the quiet houseguest, Silas Rotherham, welcomes her company. When Aurelie decides to complete her father's unfinished serial novel, she must keep her identity as Nathaniel Droll hidden while searching for the truth about her mother's disappearance - and perhaps even her father's death.

Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

It was worth the credit. Plenty of twists. Only gave 4 for performance because the second book was narrated with an English accent, the story is based in America. But it was still great.

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.

I couldn't stop listening to this story. I even found myself turning it on while I was at work and everything was quite. A ghost train and throw in some ghost train robbers as well it makes for a fantastically fast story.

Brian Roy is a ghost hunter extraordinaire. His latest adventure involves headless Japanese soldiers wreaking havoc in a New Hampshire church. The stats are grisly. Two boys blinded. Another boy shot. Cops killed. The bodies keep piling up and the ghosts' thirst for vengeance is as insatiable as their thirst for saké! The phantom soldiers cut a swath of murder through the congregation until all that's left of Brian's local allies are Jim Bogue and his grandfather, Luke Allen, who is a blind marine vet.

This was a well thought out book with some great character. I think a little history extra would have been good of the Japaneses Soldiers. And Leo is still a great character.
