Whispers of the Walker


E.E. Holmes - 2016
     From E.E. Holmes, author of the award-winning Gateway Trilogy, comes the first in the highly anticipated companion series The Gateway Trackers. It’s been several years since Jess and Hannah Ballard foiled a cataclysmic prophecy that could have destroyed their fellow Durupinen, an ancient clan of women who allow spirits to cross between the worlds of the living and the dead. The girls swore, after the devastation and chaos they endured, they would never get caught up in the inner workings of the Durupinen again. They were wrong. After breaking the code of secrecy and facing the judgement of the High Council, Jess and Hannah have no choice but to become Trackers, working to take down those who would exploit the spirit world for profit or power. Their first assignment takes them into the deep South, where Jeremiah Campbell, a self-proclaimed spiritual guru, lures wealthy and desperate devotees with promises of a deeper connection with the dead. As the girls go undercover, it soon becomes clear that Campbell is not merely the con artist they suspected him to be, and that they, and the spirit world they are sworn to protect, are once again in unimaginable danger.

When I Died


Elizabeth Eckert - 2016
    Eckert weaves a beautiful, highly textured tale in her debut novel. Seriously thought provoking.”Hey! I am Adrianna… seventeen, ordinary and …dead.A short time ago my biggest worries were my mom staying sober, my new stepdad sticking around, and how my hair looked. Now, I am knee-deep into angels, unimaginable evil, fading thousand-year-old monks, and I am falling head over heels for a gorgeous dead guy, and an adorable, vision-transmitting little artist. The secret Jonathan – my new dead boyfriend – is keeping from may prove more than I can handle. I am responsible for saving my new world and everyone in it!More Amazon Reviews:Richly imaginative and compelling, “When I Died” is an after-death love and adventure story with dark forces creating suspense and turmoil. An air of mystery in the story adds to its quality, and there is definitely a what-happens-next aspect that propels the story along. There’s also a truly charming quality in the story, especially in the voice of young Adrianna (Anna), who is only 17 when she dies. Elizabeth Eckert has Anna’s voice just right—from the somewhat petulance of her first few days being dead, to her compassion for her little sister, and on through the story to her growing love of Jonathan. Anna and Jonathan have to make some heart-wrenching choices, especially in the climax, that make their characters all the more intriguing. Readers will watch Anna grow up and mature—even if she is technically dead. People back on the earth—especially Anna's beloved friend Willie—also have important roles in the story and create suspense and drama in the book. Well done, with some surprising twists and a not-what-I-expected ending, which of course will pull me into the sequel. The writing is lovely, with a lyrical quality to the language, and Eckert excels in creating another world for her readers. A thought-provoking tale, and even though it does not follow traditional Christian or Jewish beliefs, it’s a surprisingly spiritual book.Elizabeth Eckert weaves an intriguing tale of people coping with an ethereal existence after their deaths. Angels, archangels and the devil play their part in this well-written novel. I enjoyed the complex interplay of the characters, as the author builds on an innovative concept of an afterlife. Congratulations on the superb ending.

The Grey House


Marcelle Sixx - 2016
    From the moment Tyler and her step-father, Noah, moved into the large abandoned house that was once a plantation, she knew that they weren’t alone. The sounds of footsteps in an empty hall, laughter when there was no one there, and the dark shadow that would appear made her a believer. Are they the trapped spirits of the slaves that once worked the land, or is it a demon with a deeper, more sinister purpose that had been waiting patiently for Tyler to seek its revenge for sins done long ago? The more she tries to convince Noah that there’s something going on, the more he demands for her to mind her own business. The closer Tyler gets, the mysteries of not only the past, but also of the present surrounding the death of her mother begin to unravel. Tyler comes face to face with the glaring truth of two things; no one is what they seem to be, and that in the HOUSE OF GRAY, there is no death us part.
