Riveting and interesting paranormal and psychological tale with an element of horror mixed into it. There are also heartwarming and loyal friendship and romance. It's very fascinating to get a glimpse into the professional life and work as well as challenges and rewards of psychic and paranormal surveys and investigations. This book is a degree darker than the previous book in this series. But well worth it. Heartily recommended.
This story was really well written and it's obvious that Shani did her homework when writing it. The story had my attention until I finished it. Very engaging story with perhaps some hidden gems in the guise of fiction. I don't often read about tulpas, shapeshifters (not the genre created kind), and thought forms, in fiction books. So it was really refreshing to have someone use what's been well written about historically, to write a plausible story (at least to those who are familiar with the subjects) I'd recommend this book for anyone who is interested in the mystery/haunting/paranormal genre. I also really appreciated the ending.
There is, however, one thing that would have been nice........to be able to start reading the next book :o)
This story is about how fear and fright can feed someone's life into the dark. Not. a spirit the ladies can help but something conjured out from the mind that can actually kill . I have a little trouble with some of the UK slang. I can hardly wait to start reading the next book in this series.
I really enjoy spending time with these characters. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first book because it went down a darker path. Even though they repeatedly emphasized that they weren't dealing with a "demon", it sure walked, talked and smelled like one. I like the more "standard" ghosts. Another thing I enjoyed about the first book, was in addition to the main case, they investigated smaller hauntings for a page or two. Because of the scope of this issue, the entire group basically went into hiding and left their main stream existence that I liked so much. They are normal folks with a weird job and I like that. Good for Jed! He plays a bigger role in this story and I LOVED it..
Another great novel about the psychic world. Shani Struthers has a way of telling a story that has you up late into the night reading to see what happens. She can set up a scene that is exciting and a little hair raising in her books. This was a little darker in that she develops more of Ruby's background with demons and her family. I love the setting and descriptions of the area near Brighton, UK. This is a good read I had a hard time putting down.
Book two--Wow. Shani Struthers writes just what I like to read. Her books take me on a paranormal adventure. Captivating. Difficult to put down. I know the ending is going to be good with no cliff-hangers. When one book ends, I want to start another. There is nothing too dark or sad to leave me feeling in a down mood. Just some great characters brought to life by a talented author. I love Jed. Who's Jed? Read the book. You won't be disappointed.
Better than the first book and that one was pretty great. Definitely more tense moments for Ruby and company this time around. I'm glad this story wasn't set directly on the heels of the previous. I appreciate that rather than have this span a short time frame (of days or weeks) it is a struggle of months. It shows that the writer is well aware that not all problems are solved lickety-split.
The only negative....what happened to Daisy?? As a dog lover I need the reassurance she is OK. :) Other than that....fantastic. and I just can't get enough of Jed...having just lost a dog...one I thought of as my angel...I live reading about Jed and the rainbow bridge. Very comforting. Jed reminds me of Walter...Rip... and I love all the talk of the light and crystals... and I cried again. Can't help it. This book made me feel lots of emotions. A wonderful escape.
