It's interesting to see how the supernatural world continues to expand with each novel.

One issue is the narration of the Grimlock family. While brief, it's annoying that they are read so differently that in the Aisling Grimlock series. While I don;t expect them to sound exactly the same, The characters should act the same.

Fun story, bad narration

While I enjoyed the new characters and a different angle on the existing Aisling Grimlock saga, it was extremely frustrating that the narrator put no effort into getting to know characters that have been established in 9 prior books. While I don't expect it to be exactly the same, you can't totally change the way they are read. Jerry and Aiden were the worst. I cringed whenever she portrayed them.

given that many of the characters come from the prior Aisling Grimlock series, the dramatic shift in how the characters are read is annoying. the narrator didn't seem to put any effort into trying to keep them consistent

while I am curious to see how it ends, the series has definitely gone in an odd direction. it also seems like they have similar crises as in each book

my first issue with the book is that the author starts it by saying it's the conclusion of Charlie's tale. it then started trying to wrap up the stories of all the characters. maybe it's me, but I don't recall any details in the prior 12 books that supports Uncle Bob all of a sudden being an angel. in the end,while this story is over it's clear that the author is just setting up the next series that will focus on beep. this book just seemed rushed to tie up everything.

very odd

I got this book because it sounded interesting and I had enjoyed the author's book "Meddling Kids". though I tried, I just never got into this one.

Crossover alert!!!

I was not aware when I started this book that it was a cross-over with her Aisling Grimlock series. if you are not up to date on that series or intend to listen to it then this will tell you too many facts That give away things in the series. Also, if you are an Aisling fan, it's odd hearing the perception of her through Hadley's eyes.

some of the same snark

while the character is similar, the author basically drops an atomic bomb on where things were left after the first book and goes off in a totally different direction.

I didn't look to see which series came first, but I already listened to books by this author in another series where the female lead sees ghosts and helps move them to the afterlife. and just like that series, she gets a cop boyfriend that she gets upset with when they leave town and don't call. additionally they both have a gay male roommate that they have been best friends with since grade school. it's not bad, I've just heard parts of it before so it wasn't as original to me.

other than the continued announcements of who is speaking, I enjoyed it. without spilling too much, it's the tale of teen mystery sleuths (and their dog) whose final case traumatizes them. thirteen years later they come back together. each has their own daemons and past to deal with as they finally solve the real mystery.
