Footsteps in the attic. Toys that play by themselves. A dark presence in an upstairs room.
Paranormal investigator Ellie Jordan faces a difficult new case. Her new clients are a family haunted by multiple ghosts and a poltergeist that wrecks their home at night. Their seven-year-old son’s invisible friends may not be imaginary at all, but the restless spirits of dead children.
To clear her clients’ house of the dangerous entities, Ellie must unravel the mysterious deaths of another family who lived in the old mansion more than a hundred and sixty years ago—and she must do it before the ghosts can carry out their malevolent designs on her clients and their children.
After a surprise love of the first book in the series, I didn't hesitate to pick up the second. And oh boy was this quite the read. Creepier, darker, and full of delicious paranormal woo hoo.
Ellie once again manages to get herself in way over her head when it comes to the dark and creepy spirits that haunt the homes of those she visits and while this trait isn't a great one, it somehow works for the storyline.
With darkness abound, danger around every creak and glowing orb, this was a fun sequel that lived up to the first and then some.
Packed full of ghosts, mystery, and a slight hint of a romance to be, this truly was a hard one to put down and makes me excited to see what else Ellie and her friends can get up to in the next installment.
I remain pleasantly surprised and creeped out with this series and I can see it quickly becoming a favorite for when I just need to escape, get a little freaked out and want a few hours all to myself immersed in another world where anything is possible and everything goes.
