Ellie Jordan: Ghost Trapper series
Ghost removal specialist Ellie Jordan must face a dangerous, shape-shifting entity that she and Calvin have encountered once before, with tragic results. The spirit has the power to reach into the minds of living and feed on their fears, taking the shape of their worst nightmares, and it has awoken in search of new victims.
Now Ellie must try to succeed where she and her mentor failed before, and try to defeat the twisted and powerful old ghost before it can claim another soul for its collection.
Oh my god, freaking J. L. Bryan! This story scared the crap out of me and for good reason! Surely, I can’t be the only 35-year-old woman who’s mind still plays tricks on her? Especially when reading a scary book?
This story is pretty much about a boogeyman, a fear feeder who lurks in the closet. People see this ghost peeking through a crack in their closet, or sometimes standing over their bed. It comes in the form of what you are truly scared of, but really, I think the idea of a ghost staring out at you from your closet is scary enough!
Naturally, I read this story in bed, with my position in clear view of both closets in our room, which are both on the way to the bathroom. I always have to get up in the night to use the bathroom, so I was just a little terrified. Same thing as when I was nursing the baby in her room, in the dark – I was still thinking about this damn story and the ghost lurking in the closet, feeding the baby while keeping a close eye on the closet door.
Now, I love a good ghost story, but these are great ghost stories. They seriously mess with your head! And I think it’s great that we not only get ghosts, but also the friendship forming between Ellie and Stacey, some romance (!!!), and great characters. Whenever I finish a book I think I should start reading a different book, continue a different series, and then I just have to continue with this one. It’s just too good not to read!
