|Jamie Vegas is a celebrity necromancer, seeing dead people on
TV and live shows. Aiming to get her own show, she joins two spiritualists on a TV shoot
to raise the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. After finding real ghosts in the house, Jamie asks
for help from werewolves, a half-demon, an angel or two and a dark witch. Ghosts are
usually not a problem for Jamie, but these ghosts are children, and the underworld laws
say this shouldnt happen.
Jeremy, the alpha of the US werewolf pack, is quiet,
serious and very self-controlled. He flies to LA to help out Jamie, and romance blossoms
between them while investigating what humans have discovered how to use blood magic. A
funny scene has them hiding from a sex cult, in the basement of an occult shop, kept
company by a lecherous ghost.
Though Jamie does moan a bit about having no powers and needing to be rescued all the
time, shes very capable and can look after herself while getting the job done. She
comes to terms with her dodgy past and accepts the darker side of her supernatural
abilities in this story. The sex scenes are a bit more descriptive than in the previous
books but are not graphic and fit well with the rest of the story. I think theyre
suitable for older teens upwards.
This is a paranormal suspense, with a bit of romance thrown in. Its well written,
tightly plotted, lots of intrigue, a bit of action, scary killers, as well as comedic
moments. This is an enjoyable book in the Otherworld series. It can be
read as a standalone even though some characters are recurring in the series. A definite
