Publisher's Summary

Psychic medium Vincent Night and his lover, Henry Strauss, have spent months striving to uncover the dark secret harbored by Vincent’s dead mentor, James Dunne. Their only clue comes from a journal: Dunne was seeking to restore the Grand Harmonium, an artifact meant to breach the walls between life and death.

Fate seems to intervene when Henry and Vincent are offered a job investigating the haunted orphanage where Dunne lived as a youth. But the ghosts of the orphanage don’t rest easily, and the lovers soon find themselves in a battle to locate the Grand Harmonium before it falls into the wrong hands - and unleashes evil upon the world.

Great blend of mystery/spirits/romance/historical


This is my second re-visit to books 1 & 2(Restless Spirits & Dangerous Spirits) and my first for book 3, Guardian Spirits and I loved them just as much as my original reads. Following the journey of Henry and Victor, as well as Jo and Lizzie, is such a treat and I don't think it will ever get old. Such amazing characters and incredible scene setting, well Spirits trilogy is really an all around package of goodness. For newcomers, this is a trilogy best read in order so be sure to start at the beginning to see how the four meet.

As for the narrator, Greg Tremblay, well I can't imagine anyone else reading them. Would someone else be as good and enjoyable? Of course, but after listening to Greg read Spirits, I really don't see anyone else doing the characters and their adventures to find the truth justice. A reading and listening masterpiece that will pull you in, tie you down, and not let go till the truth is found. Entertaining for years to come.

An adventure

Do you know what I did the first thing when I woke up this morning? You got it, I started listening to Guardian Spirits. This is the third, book in the Spirits series and I wouldn’t advice reading these books out of order as the events in this one builds on the previous ones. Lizzie and Vincent is still reeling from the revelations in Dangerous Spirits, and there are a lot of emotions going around; confusion, betrayal, denial and a thirst for answers. So since we left them the gang has been trying to uncover what secrets Lizzie and Vincent’s mentor hid from them. Until one day when they see and add seeking mediums for help uncovering the secrets of a haunted orphanage. The same orphanage their late mentor grew up. There are plenty of secrets hiding in the walls of the orphanage, secrets and demons from the past, and not all of them friendly.

The romance between Henry and Vincent is as usual way down on the priority list in this book – just like in the rest. In a way that fits as some things do need to have priority over romance, but at the same time if all of their relationship growing happens off page or in-between books we readers/listeners don’t really feel that connection to them or between them.

That was probably one of the reasons why I was so annoyed when Henry and Vincent repeated the same mistakes as in the last book i.e. not speaking with each other. Many things taking place here made them feel less than solid and I kind of wished they’d move on from that point. I mean I get that emotions run high in this book what with both of their past demons coming back into play, but still.

There’s no doubt that Jordan L. Hawk is widely talented and has such an amazing imagination to create wonderful worlds and characters. However, I would say that a lot of the would-be twists and turns in this series are predictable, a bit too predictable if I’m being honest. I’m not saying that any of it is bad, just that I’ve come to expect more from Hawk, and maybe that’s on me for judging them on a higher standard than I would others.

Greg Tremblay showed us once again what a solid narrator he is. With a wide range of voices he makes it easy to follow the different characters and everything that goes on. I especially liked the extra creepiness he added to the evil spirit, it definitely fit with the tone of the book and for just a moment made you doubt weather our main characters would make it out alive.

I don’t know if Dangerous Spirits is the last of this series, if it is I’ve had a wonderful time hunting spirits with this gang. And if not I’m looking forward to more adventures when we meet again sometime in the future.
