When the life you wanted has crumbled beneath your fingers, there’s nothing left to do but pick up the pieces and soldier on. You’ve done this before.

But what happens when you no longer feel like yourself anymore? When fires spontaneously start-up around you, when you hear growling coming from underneath your bed, and you no longer recognize your face in the mirror. What happens then?

Ghost-hunter Perry Palomino doesn’t have much time to find out. Now, the evil she used to hunt is a lot closer to home. It’s inside of her, taking over her life bit-by-terrifying bit, and there’s only one person who can help her.

If part of her doesn’t kill him first.

“She’s waking up. Get the bat.” Not exactly the best words to wake up to.”

Halle really stepped up her game in this book and that was impressive to do considering how much I loved the last one! We find Perry broken and devastated after the turmoil of the last book and trying to put the pieces of her life back together.

The struggles and pain that she experiences are not what I would have expected and one of them in particular was very hard to read about. I was heartbroken for Perry. She was trying so hard. She wanted to just be normal and move forward, but that was not to be.

“Did I look like crap because I felt like crap, or did I feel like crap because I looked like crap? Ah, the mysteries of life”

This book was primarily Perry’s story, but my favorite part was seeing how Perry learned to not only to find strength in herself, but build a new bond with Ada. Their relationship as sisters and friends grew by leaps and bounds in this story and it was awesome to see! Ada is a dynamic character and she really brought a lot to the story.

Dex was not a complete no show in this story, but Perry really needed this story to learn about her own strength, and frankly, Dex needed some Perry-free time too. Of course, when he does come into play, it is in fabulous Dex swagger form. He made me swoon and even bonded with Ada a bit.

“Perry,” he said quietly, his fingers trailing down the side of my face, “you’ll never have to save my life. You gave me life. I never lived a single day until the first day I met you.”

Many, many questions are answered in this story. MANY! I was so relieved to put some of them to rest. It then opened a new chapter of things to come with Dex and Perry in a very new and exciting way. Those two have a long road ahead of them, but they at least have a place to start now.

A few support characters left me suspicious and rightfully so. We are visited by a few from past books and of course, Perry’s parents. I was not thrilled with any of them by the end and I am wary of all. When I completed the book, I trusted no one, and no environment.

On the creeper scale this was the scariest yet for me. I was constantly looking over my shoulder as I read. The fear was physical and psychological. Perry’s mind was as just as dangerous as the things attacking her and so had barely any support during this ongoing assault. The loneliness she felt was just as terrifying as the paranormal monsters lurking in the shadows.

I give this book 6 Stars!!! I would read this one with all the lights on and pair it with a Green Demon to drink!
