"I haven't enjoyed a romantic journey like theirs since reading the Twilight series." ★★★★★ reviewer.

"Amazing read! I could not put it down." ★★★★★ reviewer.

Spirit medium Emily Chambers has a problem. Actually, she has several. As if seeing dead people isn't a big enough social disadvantage, she also has to contend with an escaped demon and a handsome ghost with a secret past. And then there's the question of her parentage. Being born an entire year after her father's death (yes, a year) and without the pale skin of other respectable English ladies, Emily is as much a mystery as the ghost assigned to her.

Jacob Beaufort's spirit has been unable to crossover since his death several months ago.  It might have something to do with the fact he was murdered. Or it might not. All he knows is, he has been assigned by the Otherworld's administrators to a girl named Emily. A girl who can see and touch him. A girl who released a shape-shifting demon into the mortal realm. Together they must send the demon back before it wreaks havoc on London. It should be a simple assignment, but they soon learn there's nothing simple when a living woman and a dead man fall in love.

    Soon as I finished this book I promptly went online and purchased the second and third one. Very excited! Fascinating characters and very well written.

    I really enjoyed reading this book to the point that I couldn’t put it down. The suspense kept me reading and guessing to the end. I only wish Jacob’s story could have been finished or maybe it will be in the next book.
  • Pretty cool!

    By Cajunjennie
    I usually enjoy a good ghost story but this one had a pretty cool and a little but bizarre twist! Looking forward to the next in the series!

    I was very tired at work the next day because I couldn't stop reading this book. I'm getting ready to get the next in the series!

    I found this book thoroughly engaging. It flowed well and contained excellent descriptions of the characters and the historical setting which drew me into the story as if I were a part of the actual story.

    Exciting plot and beautifully written. I couldn't put it down.
  • Lovely book

    It satisfies the craving for a supernatural romance without pointless sex (probably because this is meant for adolescents, but no matter). There were a very few written mistakes that should have been cleaned up by an editor, but they didn't detract from the story whatsoever. The plot was enjoyable, but I'm confused over the reason why the villains needed an outsider to summon the demon if it could have been done themselves; I know it was a tool to involve the protagonists, but it didn't make sense. Overall though, I am interested in reading the next book in the series to uncover the mysteries left from this one.

    The book is absorbing, very readable specially for young adults, mostly female readers. Romantic is very well handled. Sulekha sharma

    This book was a pleasant surprise. There were some of laugh-out-loud moments that I'm sure went over some of the younger reader's heads. I quite like this author - not because of the characters (although I do like them enough) but for the her humor that shows up unexpectedly throughout the story. It was a decent read and I look forward to book 2.
