Publisher's Summary

Shane Ryan and his ghostbusting partner, Frank Benedict, have been killing ghosts all over New England. He's always thought the jobs were random until he runs into The Watchers, an elite group who's decided Shane is a threat to their own sinister plans. Their leader, Harlan Canus, sends Shane a gruesome message that can't be ignored.

Marie Lafontaine joins Shane and Frank as they descend on Borgin Keep, which is set in the lush hills of Vermont. They discover The Watchers have a few ghastly secrets of their own, hidden within the chilling castle. Emmanuel Borgin, long dead, has an uneasy alliance with Watchers. Alliance or not, Shane is determined to finish the job...even if it means destroying Harlan right along with the deadly Emmanuel!

The trio searches the hidden passages and secret rooms for Emmanuel's bones, realizing Borgin Keep is a shifting house of horrors. From the flesh-eating undead to faceless demons, Emmanuel throws his worst supernatural minions at the crew. Shane knows he's got to stop Emmanuel and Harlan or more innocents will die, suffering unspeakable torture, and agonizing deaths.

Failure is not an option, but annihilating the uncanny ghost and his grisly castle could be the last job Shane ever completes.

    "Shocks, Jolts, and Frights...Oh My!"

    The characters become increasingly twisted as the series continues. I especially enjoy the evolution of Shane's personality in each book. Actually, there are no static characters. Each event leaves a mark. I am going to be sorry to read the next book (#9) since it is the last one of the Berkley tales.

    "Amazing!"

    I highly recommend the entire series. The main characters come across as very real. They have baggage, they're believable, and it makes you cheer for them that much more. It's not always easy to get attached to a character in what boils down to a ghost story, but this series nails it on the head. I'm always left wanting more. Each story in the series builds off the last and takes you a great journey. Sometimes, as with life, the journey is painful. I highly recommend the series. Once you start into it, you won't want to put the series down. if you're anything like me, you'll be desperately watching for an announcement that the next book is being released. I hope to never hear the end of Shane Ryan!

    "Gruesome place"

    I think this book in the series is the most horrific so far, and Borgin Keep is a chilling place! We find out what happens to members of The Watchers when they are no longer effective or needed, and it isn't pretty. Shane and Frank must once again do what they do best - battle the restless dead - but this time things are even more complicated by their living enemies. I was on edge a couple of times, wondering how things could possibly work out! We also see Shane sinking further into despair as his guilt and grief tear him apart. I'm worried what will happen to him...

    "Poor Shane!"
    If you could sum up Borgin Keep in three words, what would they be?

    Beware the Watchers


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. There was so much action, so much danger for Shane to watch out for. Instead of danger coming from one quarter, there're deadly situations being thrown at him from all directions. Poor Shane can't let his guard down for a moment! And the way Eloise is changing...It's disturbing.


    What about Thom Bowers’s performance did you like?

    Bowers' voice will forever be Shane's voice for me. As well as Frank's and Carl's. He reads so well and with so much feeling. His reading sucks me into the book as well as if I were reading it myself.


    If you could rename Borgin Keep, what would you call it?

    The Watchers


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed with Marie's role in the story. At times I wondered why she was in the story at all since she didn't contribute to it. I loved her role in the first two books but with this book and the previous one she's dead weight. There's no real point to her and it probably would've been better without her. Also, I'm not sure why her and Shane's relationship got all strained and antagonistic. We first see it in the last book and then again in this one, but I don't get it since I they seemed on amiable terms when we last see them in the 2nd book. At least, I don't remember seeing them together after the 2nd book. But nothing's mentioned about their friendship getting rocky. These are my only qualms.

    "Shane is not someone you want to make angry!"

    This is my favorite horror series thus far, and each book brings more layers to the world. I am both excited and sad to get to the conclusion of Shane's escapades.

    "Another Keeper. The Watchers will never learn."
    If you could sum up Borgin Keep in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful. Riveting, Page-turner


    What other book might you compare Borgin Keep to and why?

    It is similar to the other Berkley Street Series. It does build on what has been introduced in prior books. There are old friends and new ones, so definitely not a repeat, just some familiars.


    Any additional comments?

    Thom's narration was excellent as always. Thank you for excellent book.

    "GREAT SERIES"

    I love this series they are not like The Ghost and Mrs. Muir. It has many great ghost characters some evil some good and full of actions. Especially love the characters of Shane (ex-marine), Frank (ex-priest and ex-military, Carl, Eloise and Courtney. I want this series to go on and on. Highly recommend this series that enjoys ghost horror. I was given this audiobook from Scare Street. THANK YOU!!

    "Shane does it again"

    I don't think this book is as good as the other 7, not a bad story though. Think I'm going off Shane a bit although he can get rid of the nasty ghosts but he is acting bit like them now, must be catching. He cares nothing about anyone or anything except cigs and whisky and his atitude stinks. There is plenty of action both from the living and the dead. He sorts out the ghosts while a group called The Watches want to kill him and anyone close to him. A roller coaster ride.
