In her acclaimed Women of the Otherworld series, bestselling author Kelley Armstrong creates a present day in which humans unwittingly coexist with werewolves, witches, and other supernatural beings. Now, in this spellbinding new novel, a beautiful necromancer who can see ghosts must come to terms with her power—and with an evil she never thought possible.It’s the most anticipated reality television event of the season: three spiritualists gathered together in one house to raise the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. For celebrity medium Jaime Vegas, it is to be her swan song—one last publicity blast for a celebrity on the wrong side of forty. But unlike her colleagues, who are more show than substance, Jaime is the real thing. Reluctant to upstage her fellow spiritualists, Jaime tries to suppress her talents, as she has done her entire life. But there is something lurking in the maze of gardens behind the house: a spirit without a voice. And it won’t let go until somehow Jaime hears its terrible story. For the first time in her life, Jaime Vegas understands what humans mean when they say they are haunted. Distraught, Jaime looks to fellow supernatural Jeremy Danvers for help.As the touches and whispers from the garden grow more frantic, Jaime and Jeremy embark on an investigation into a Los Angeles underworld of black magic and ritual sacrifice. When events culminate in a psychic showdown, Jaime must use the darkest power she has to defeat a shocking enemy—one whose malicious force comes from the last realm she expected. . . .In a world whose surface resembles our own, Kelley Armstrong delivers a stunning alternate reality, one where beings of the imagination live, love, and fight a never-ending battle between good and evil.

I really enjoyed it. I loved seeing how Jaime Vegas (stupid name by the way) and Jeremy took their relati...
Kelley Armstrong always tells a good story but some stories are much more compelling than others. A story like “Bitten” grabs you by the throat and drags you into a the world of werewolves. “No Humans Involved” takes your arm and distracts you pleasantly for a while but isn’t going to change your li...
I'm a fan of Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series. One thing that makes the series different is that its told from different perspectives--usually female and written in first person. The first two books are narrated by Elena, a werewolf, the next two by Paige, a witch and so on. I rathe...
I read this first out of all the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. I have to admit that it is my favourite because it includes werewolves and necromancers. Dangerous animals and people who can talk to the dead somehow go together perfectly.
Interesing addition to the series. Jaime Vegas is a necromancer working as a medium. Trying very hard not to expose too much on TV and to anger her co-stars on a program designed to see if they can find out how Marilyn Monroe died. Things don't go to plan and she finds herself embroiled in a tric...
