Overall rating: 3/5
Onto another book in the Women of the Otherworld series I have read before, and the end is in site! I’ve been debating on what to read once I’ve finished this series, and would love to hear from you on what you want to see reviewed!
While filming a television special meant to propel her dream of having her own show, necromancer, Jamie Vegas, stumbles onto ghosts who cannot contact her. Unlike ghosts she has met in the past, even after she attempts to reach them numerous times, these ghosts are only able to poke and prod at Jamie. With the help of Pack Alpha, Jeremy Danvers, her spirit guide, Eve Levine, and chaos demon, Hope Evans: Jamie attempts to set the spirits free, find the people who trapped them, prove that she can help herself and to summon all of the spirits that the television program wants her to. Jamie’s desire to help these trapped spirits is rooted in her desire to take on a bigger part on the Supernatural Council, and in her ability to embrace the powers that she fears may cause her to go mad as her Nan did.
This is the first time I’ve seen a book that focuses on Jamie, and I really liked it. She’s a compelling character, who struggles with her powers and her want to help as much as the other supernaturals. While Jamie’s ability to talk to ghosts isn’t as good as super strength or spell casting, she realizes the strength of her powers and what she can do.
