Early Review! Hold Back the Dark (Bishop Special Crimes Unit #18) Kay Hooper!
Hold Back the Dark - Kay Hooper

 

 

An SCU team investigates an inexplicable string of murders committed by men and women with no memory of their crimes in the latest in this New York Times bestselling series.

Madness has taken ahold of Prosperity, North Carolina. Residents are killing one another, as if in a dream, and waking up with no memory of the monstrous acts they've committed--or why. As the death toll climbs, the local sheriff's department is further rocked by a murder carried out by one of their own. Deputy Katie Cole knows that whatever monster is afoot is beyond her scope...

The Special Crimes Unit is called in for their specific brand of investigation. It will take all their training, all their experience, and every extra sense they can call on to get to the bottom of things in Prosperity. And as a dark pattern begins to emerge, even the most experienced and hardened SCU agents have to wonder if this is beyond their understanding.

 

 

Bishop’s team of psychics is back and this time they have been summoned along with some all new psychics and there are up against an evil that is pushing for a blood bath in this chilling paranormal suspense that had the hair on the back of my neck standing up on end.

 

Kay Hooper’s suspenseful world of psychics is full of wonderful characters that are strong and captivating, always adding lots of depth to each and every case as they try to solve cases using their psychic abilities and at least some of the time they become targets because of those abilities as well. Every case is different and each have their own unique elements and the author makes it all seem very plausible and real that I can’t help but get chills just thinking about.

 

Hold Back the Dark is the newest thrilling read in the series and I was completely enthralled and unable to put the book down until I had read every last detail. The suspense and anticipation kept building throughout and there was no way to predict just what the evil might make happen next which of course means that there is never a dull moment and to make this book even more interesting, the author introduces some new psychics that have trouble controlling their gifts / curses. There is not really a new romance in this book but there are couples that have hooked up in previous books involved in the case so you still get a bit of romance throughout the story.

 

I can never get enough of this series, so of course I can’t wait to read the next one which I think will be the third book in the Bishop Files series and it will be out in October.

 

 

 

Hold Back the Dark is the 18th book in the Bishop / Special Crimes Unit series.

School Spirits
School Spirits - Rachel Hawkins I liked this book, but I don't recommend it for younger children. Hawkins is a gifted writer and I'll look to see if she continued this book. While many people summarize the plots in a review, I don't think it's my job, it's the writer's job. The fact that I'm looking for a sequel gives you an idea that I liked the protagonist and the story plot.

My Review of Wayward Spirits by Brian Rathbone
Wayward Spirits: A Prelude to The Dawning of Power (Godsland Series: Prequel) - Chris Snelgrove,Brian Rathbone

Wayward Spirits by Brian Rathbone is a prelude to The Dawning of Power series. Benjin and Wendel embark on a quest to Godsland after being told by a mysterious stranger that the world was in danger and needed a hero.

 

This short story started out good, but missed the mark. We meet Benjin and Wendel and we follow on their quest, but then the story stops. I thought it would be picked up in the first book, Call of the Herald, so I purchased the book to find out about Benjin and Wendel's journey. Sadly, Call of the Herald did not give me any insight into what these characters went through on their journey.

 

You can read my review of Call of the Herald here:

Tangible Spirits by Becki Willis
Tangible Spirits - Becki Willis This book did not turn out to be what I thought it was but... it was still a great story. It was more a mystery and romance then a paranormal book, even though there were some ghosts. The book moved a little slow for me especially at the start but it was still a book didn't want to put down. I liked that the book did not need cursing or steamy sex scenes. Yes there was sex but it was just hinted at and you used your imagination to fill in the blanks. The book has a lot going for it, ghosts, mystery, intrigue, hot guys, romance, murder and more. Gera is a reporter and has come to Jerome AZ in search of ghosts. Being a stoic non believer this will be a hard story for her to write. When she arrives she is drawn into the Twilight Zone at least to her. The whole town believes in ghosts so much so that when Abe Cunningham is murdered everyone lays the blame on Mac. Mac is the towns most popular ghost. Gera not believing in ghosts decides to turn her ghost article into a murder mystery. Soon she feels like she is being followed. Someone knifes her car tire, she is drugged by the snake loving bartender. She falls for the hotel she is staying ats owner, the town banker falls for her and so much more. The book may be a little slow moving but it does have a lot going on it.

Review: Sweet Tea & Spirits
Sweet Tea and Spirits (Southern Ghost Hunter) (Volume 5) - Angie Fox

After a puzzling phone call predicting a murder, Verity and gangster ghost buddy Frankie are hired on the sly by Julia Harper Youngblood to investigate who is leaving the Sugarland Heritage Society’s mannequins in compromising positions at a Civil War era home for widows and children. When she later finds Julia dead, she’s going to need the ghostly inhabitants to help her find a killer, and uncovers a very salacious history that no one expected.

 

Every time I read the newest book in the Southern Ghost Hunter series, I rave that it’s the best book so far. So, it should come as no surprise to you when I say Sweet Tea and Spirits is the best one so far in this series! Virginia, the MIL you love to hate, offers up a few surprises and even gangster Frankie shows off an unexpected side. I loved the glimpse into Verity’s family history, and I hope Ida will make an appearance at a later point. The exciting ending capped up a suspenseful plot that weaved a bit of saucy Southern history with spectral shenanigans into a thrilling adventure sprinkled with humor.

 

Overall, Sweet Tea & Spirits is an excellent addition to the Southern Ghost Hunter series and a must read for any paranormal mystery fan.
