A haunting release

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Melanie has been a voice of Ivy Grangers for several books and slips right back into character for this short story. It flows with a pacing that fits the story and the few events that happen. It's clear in listening.

Oh. It took me a moment to connect the title to the short story. I get it.

This story is quick. I didn't even realize it was 28 minutes (listening wise) when it was over. It's a case that takes a matter of moments when Ivy arrives at the residence. It gives us the details of the case then the history connecting it all along with how Ivy solves it.

This story is a quick one to read to introduce yourself to Ivy Granger and her world. You get hints of what is present in the world and city of Harbersmouth along with what Ivy can do. There is nothing here to give away the series secrets. Also, you wouldn't be hindered in not reading this before the series. It's a complete stand-alone short story.

It would work well for Halloween, I think. ;)

As always, it's a pleasure to get to visit Ivy Granger on cases in her neck of the woods, or harbor.

Surprising story.

This story reminds me of old Noire detective stories but with the supernatural twist. There is a darker tone to this story I was not expecting. overall the story flowed very well and had a minor twist in it.

The narrator did a great job on telling us the story.

Awesome intro to the series

This is a great beginning to an awesome paranormal series, where Ivy deals with a Client who isn’t what she seems to be, but still needs help and compassion.

Ghosts, premonitions, a mom’s love

This book was scary. The narrator did a wonderful job. I can’t wait to listen and or read more Ivy Granger books. Both Ivy the private investigator and Jinx her assistant are well developed and likable. They take on cases that a normal detective could not. Ivy has a positive attitude and some self esteem issues.

An Excellent Prequel to a Promising Series

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This introduction to the Ivy Granger, Psychic Detective series, is a fast and short narrative that well describes the main characters who will be at the center of the series. The psychic investigative skills required to solve unusual occurrences will take Ivy along with her side kick Jinx, deep into the intricacies of a fantastical world where unusual skills will be necessary to solve paranormal investigations. The short story is a great example of what we might expect to find in the rest of the series, and excellently done. The storyline is very well-thought and written and the narrator's interpretation very pleasing. You will not be disappointed by this short story and will want to explore in more depth the entire series.

Great story!

This was my first introduction to the Ivy Granger series and it was wonderful! Very entertaining and well read. The story world and characters were wonderfully well developed and empathetic. The reader did a good job getting the emotions and feeling of the story across and made me feel like I was part of the story rather than just reading a book. I'm definitely going to be listening to more by this author and narrator!

Excellent introduction to a new world

There is another world living besides ours and most of us remain happily unaware.

Ivy Granger is a psychic detective helping people deal with the unnatural. As seems to be the norm for detectives, particularly those dealing with the supernatural, she is a bit of an outcast and has constant money problems. But she is good at what she does and she wants to help people.

This is a short story, so there is a lot more to this world than you get to see/hear at this time, but the glimpse you get is fun, creepy and definitely tantalizing. I definitely would like to explore further.

The presentation in this audio version was quite good, clear and easy to understand, and the voice seemed to fit the character quite nicely.

Highly recommended.

I received a free copy of the audio book for review purposes.

Amazing Prequel!

I have read and listened to other prequels and this one, well, this one topped all of the others! It was amazing - I listened with rapt attention to Ivy and Jinx solving the case featured in the prequel! Truth be told that at the end of the prequel I was already so immersed in the world of Ivy and Jinx that I immediately started listening to the next Ivy Granger adventure, book 1, 'Shadow Sight'. Highly recommnended!
