Review: Spirit Storm
Spirit Storm by E.J. Stevens
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Urban Fantasy
Reading Level: Young Adult
Recommended for: Fans of YA fiction, esp. paranormal and urban fantasy, those interested in ghosts and spirits.
Disclosure: I received this book as part of an omnibus, including the first three books in the Spirit Guide series, from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis: "Let the spirits guide you, but never let them take you."
Spirits of the Dead are coming...
Yuki is about to face an army of lost souls on Samhain, the night of Halloween, when the spirits of the dead roam free. Yuki will need all the help she can get from her friends, but will Calvin be there for her when she needs him the most?
My Thoughts: In this second book in the Spirit Guide series, after She Smells the Dead, Yuki works to prepare herself for the spirit storm that will accompany Samhain. To complicate matters, someone appears to be hunting werewolves.
One of the things I like about this series is it is fairly realistic (within certain definitions of reality) about how life progresses. I would not be in the least bit surprised to find some people complaining that it is “boring” or “too slow,” but I actually liked the pacing. The ending was a bit of an anticlimax, but again, I found it to be realistic – and a beautiful affirmation about spirit, too.
I enjoyed this story, and am looking forward to book three, The Legend of Witchtrot Road. Watch for my review!
