One, two, the ghosts are coming for you… 
Three, four, better salt your door… 
Five, six, death and hatred mix… 
Seven, eight, help will come too late… 
Nine, ten, never reap again…

Seventeen year old, Mattie Hathaway, has enough on her plate without having to deal with the latest teenage ghost drama. The ghosts of eight murdered girls are out for her blood. They blame Mattie for their deaths. She has to figure out what happened to them before they make sure she ends up just like them…dead and angry.
Not only that, but she has to face the greatest fear of her young life, the death of the only person she’s ever loved. Can she let nature take its course or will she interfere and cause the balance of life and death to spiral out of control?
She’s out of time, and doesn’t know if she should trust Silas, the demon who has taken a very disturbing interest in her or her father, a man just as evil as Silas. 
Either way, she has to make a choice. But what will it cost her and those she loves?


Review

Not only does Mattie have to deal with ghosts popping up whenever they feel like it, she is now experiencing their excruciating death. Mattie is now thrown into reliving each girls death, and each ghost specifically wants Mattie to endure the pain. The one occurring theme of their murders being Mattie Hathaway is the reason they’re dead.
Mattie meets her father Zeke – a dangerous, secretive and endearing man. He appears to either scare or draw in others around him. But Mattie is faced with not only fear, but comfort knowing she has found her father. However with Silas in her ear telling her Zeke is not to be trusted, where does that leave Mattie.

I found this book slower than the previous two, not so much ghost drama, but more of a book based on Mattie’s discovery and journey to find herself. Relationships were a heavy plot, I only wish the ghosts of the murdered girls were focused on more instead of the teenage drama.
The story really kicked off about 60% of the way through, with spooks, chills and murders. At this point I was engrossed, it’s a shame it took that long but I am glad I kept reading because that cliffhanger has me wanting to read the next instalment. Which might I add is already downloaded on my kindle.

Perhaps Apryl Baker didn’t do as well with this instalment, however it is a crucial part of the series, and leaves more questions than answers.
I still stand by my previous reviews of this series that these books are a must read, and I would read again. On the other hand, even though Apryl Baker is skilled at writing, I wish this book was perhaps thought out better with a focused plot line, rather than jumping in and out of relationships.

I gave this book 3/5 stars – it was likeable but tedious. Please meet my hopes of the next instalment being better.

Wherever Dax Knight sets foot, hell is bound to freeze over.

As a mercenary for the Order of the Senary, Dax departs for New England to assist his comrades in battling the vampire forces threatening to consume the Northeast. The last thing he expects to find is a gorgeous vampiress who surrenders to him entirely. Ensnared by her allure, their intense attraction ignites, and he discovers she isn’t what she seems.

After a life-altering moment of mercy, they careen down a path of secrets, lies, and a forbidden passion neither of them can resist. But when her past comes back to haunt them, they’ll have to face the consequences of their actions—and their desires.

Dax and Cindel will need each other more than ever as their world spirals into chaos. But are they strong enough to survive the oncoming storm?

What have I recently finished?


Two years ago, he took my innocence and ran,
Luckily for me, he’s a slow runner.
He doesn’t know that he gave me the most beautiful gift in the world – my son. 
I’m going to give him a gift too – revenge! 
And if he’s thinking he can get me and my son…
Well, he can go take a walk!

She’s my best friend’s little sister. 
I should never have touched her. 
But I did.
She was hot. She was fun. She was begging me for it.
So I gave it to her… all night long.
I told her I loved her. I promised her the moon and stars. 
I meant every word.
Then I vanished. I couldn’t tell her why. I still can’t.
We haven’t talked since.
But I saw her yesterday. She’s still hot enough to stop traffic,
Even with a kid.
She’s got secrets, but so do I. 
I know she still wants me, but she’s not begging this time.
This time she wants me to beg. 
But I don’t beg. I take. 
And I’m taking Jessi. Secrets and all.

Review coming tomorrow…… stay tuned.

What am I currently reading?

New Orleans is a city known for its paranormal history—and it’s the place Emma Rose Crane, AKA Mattie Hathaway, has come home to. 

She hopes she can start over in New Orleans, where her ability to see ghosts isn’t so freaky. She’s even starting college, but the whole thing would be a lot easier if she weren’t faced with a family she barely knows, all while dealing with the loss of someone she loved. 

Can she really escape her past and be semi-normal? Even with her sister Mary and best friend Eric by her side, it’s going to be a wild ride once she agrees to help Mary’s new friends investigate a “haunted” house. 

The house’s new occupants are terrified, and the ghost seems to be attacking their little girl, leaving everyone desperate for answers. Emma isn’t sure what to think when she discovers Dr. Lawrence Olivet was also invited to investigate. 

Will her gifts be enough to save the family that is currently being stalked in their own home? And when some of her own family’s long-kept secrets come to light, will her fresh start be over before it even begins?

New Orleans is a city known for its paranormal history—and it’s the place Emma Rose Crane, AKA Mattie Hathaway, has come home to.
She hopes she can start over in New Orleans, where her ability to see ghosts isn’t so freaky. She’s even starting college, but the whole thing would be a lot easier if she weren’t faced with a family she barely knows, all while dealing with the loss of someone she loved.

So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
 
Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.
 
Now, I live in small town in WV where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
 
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
