Publisher's Summary

Their new home on Frederick Street in Clay Center, Kansas, was supposed to give writer Jonathan David and his husband, clinical psychologist Dr. Eddie Dorman, an opportunity to enjoy married life. Jonathan has just released his first major best seller, and he hopes to finally escape his traumatic past and find the quiet existence he has always craved. Eddie has taken a job at the Kansas State University psychology department, and they intend to begin anew.

They have barely settled in when the nightmare begins. Noises, disembodied voices, and mysterious apparitions make Jonathan's life hell. Part of the house has decided to bare its teeth, show its jagged edges, and bring back the worst of Jonathan's past. At first, Eddie cannot perceive the spectral events and fears for his husband's sanity. When he's also affected by the haunting, he's unsure of what to do but refuses to be beaten.

Together, they seek a way to fight the forces trying to tear them apart. The world is a frightening place, but confronting their fears plunges Jonathan and Eddie into absolute horror.

Emotional, thrilling and Amazing!

A haunting paranormal thriller. Emotional, engrossing and entertaining... the story pulls you in and won't let go. You will get drawn deeper and deeper into the mysterious happening and the interactions of the characters. F.E. Feeley Jr does a phenomenal job of building the story and making you care about its inhabitants. Definitely a recommended book.

Kaleb Cox does a fantastic job narrating. Brought story to life with a voice that was easy to listen to.

F.E. Feeley knocks it out of the park, once again!

I've only recently started listening to audio books and I stumbled across F.E. Feeley's first book in this series a couple of months ago. Within moments, I was hooked and once I finished it I could hardly wait to start this next chapter in the Human Wraith series. The author's vivid description of middle-of-nowhere Kansas was on point, and his characters are both lovable and familiar. You feel like you know both of them, you understand the intricacies of their relationship, and their drive to band together against all odds to face and defeat an unseen foe. It's so refreshing to find well-written horror fiction with gay leads and to have relatable characters that go beyond the stereotype. Throughout the book I found myself rooting so hard for these two guys to make it through all the horrible things being thrown against them. Overall, a wonderful read and I highly recommend this book and the series to anyone who enjoys supernatural and horror stories.

Well done!

Beautifully Written

Typically I do not select Paranormal books, but this one caught my eye and was highly recommended. The first thing you need to know, it is beautifully written, so much so that I found myself having to go back and re-listen to parts. I got a little swept up in the words that I wasn’t “hearing” them.

I enjoyed this book and would like to go and read the first in the series as well. Having said that, you obviously don’t need to read book 1 to listen to book 2.

There were pieces and parts of the paranormal story that either didn’t make sense to me, or I just didn’t understand. But again, that could be because this isn’t my normal genera. But I did enjoy the listen and liked the story very much. Jonathan and Eddie are great characters and I love them together. They perfectly balance each other out.

The epilogue wrapped up the story and the other characters nicely as well. I would recommend this book to any paranormal and MM romance fans!

Eager for the sequel

I began listening without knowledge or expectations as to what the novel was about. What I got was a charming paranormal story in which the characters happen to be gay instead of their sexuality being the focal point of their identities. The ending caught me completely by surprise and I am keen to see the world building in the sequel.

Objects in the Rearview Mirror

Past and present collide in this story. Jonathan and Eddie never imagined what they would find and go through in their new home. Could Jonathan be sick or is there a more sinister reason for what the two men are experiencing? Is their love strong enough to fight against what is happening or will the evil win?

This story is an emotional listen. Jonathan and Eddie fight for not only their love but their lives as well. Somehow the past has attached itself to the house and Jonathan. The author does a good job of mixing love and angst throughout this story. There is a lot of sadness and pain that all the characters in this story go through. Jonathan has lived through and survived his pain, but others have not. The two men must figure out just what is going on and how to stop it, but it won’t be easy, and evil does not want to let go. I enjoyed the bond that these two men have. Eddie and Jonathan fight together and for each other. With the help of friends and colleagues they will fight to end this and hope that love will win in the end. As much as I enjoyed this story, I would have liked to see what happened to Jonathan’s parents as well as the couple from the beginning of the book. Narrator Kaleb Cox does a nice job of giving these characters and their world to life. His narrative is clear and flowing and I was quickly immersed in their story right from the start.

Very emotional story, beautiful characters

What a great story, so well written with such amazing characters. It was upsetting to follow what Jonathan had to go through only because of his previous history and the pain his husband felt while realizing he cannot help. The author described every thought and emotion and fear this couple suffers though so vividly that I couldn't help but be on the edge of my seat. I found the narrator talking too fast at first, however an hour into this captivating story I got used to it and liked the narration after that. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy mystery, suspense and love in their story. I am looking forward to more books from this author.

A good read

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, but his generosity didn't influence my review.

The blurb makes this book sound like a horror novel, but the haunting is not all that scary. So, even if horror is a genre you avoid, you shouldn't avoid this book. However, although the supernatural aspects didn't bother me, the real-life themes upset me a lot. This story is really about two survivors of child abuse and how that trauma shaped who they are. A parent also dies (in flashbacks) and her illness is described in detail.

So, the material is heavy, and the characters are unhappy for most of the book. The depiction of Jonathan and Eddie's love for each other does temper the sadness, though. Their relationship is sweet, and while they do have a conflict in the middle of the story, it gets resolved pretty quickly. I also liked their fast friendship with their new neighbor, an older lady named Maggie. This version of small-town life overall feels real to me; Maggie knows almost everything about her old neighbors, and she's always been willing to help any way she can. In general all of the dialogue feels very natural to me.

Overall, the book is well written, with some lovely prose. The theme of abuse survivors helping each other find peace is interesting, and the author executed it with both skill and sensitivity. There is also an uplifting ending. I didn't have strong feelings about any of the major characters, but that was okay, since it's mainly a plot-driven book.

I recommend the audiobook. The narrator has a calm and ordinary delivery, and his performance really works well for such a serious book.

I haven't read the other books in this series, but this one stands alone. There's only a very short bit at the end which is completely unrelated to this book and probably ties it in to the series.

Hauntingly good

This was such an emotionally gripping story that brought me to tears more than once as the scenes played out. My experience was doubled profoundly by the narration, as it took me to another level. The imagery was vivid and I felt like I experienced it in real time. Engaging characters and intriguing storyline. I loved it

Unexpected surprise

For some reason (and I am not sure why) I really expected this to be super scary but it was not.
I really did enjoy listening to this story about Jonathan and his husband Eddie and the move into their new home.
Strange things start occurring which neither tell each other about, ghosts from the past are very present in this paranormal tale.
