a gift of ghosts

Akira Malone believes in the scientific method, evolution, and Einstein’s theory of relativity. And ghosts.

All the logic and reason in the world can’t protect her from the truth—she can see and communicate with spirits. As far as she’s concerned, though, her ability is a genetic quirk and the ghosts she encounters are simply leftover electromagnetic energy. Dangerous electromagnetic energy.

Zane Latimer believes in telepathy, precognition, auras, and that playing Halo with your employees is an excellent management technique. He also thinks that maybe, just maybe, Akira can help his family get in touch with their lost loved ones.

But will Akira ever be able to face her fears and accept her gift? Or will Zane’s relatives be trapped between life and death forever?

I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

It’s similar to the ghost whisperer, but not enough to make it boring. It had a lot of extra and exciting parts. The idea of everyone in the town having unique talents and accepting each others quirks, reminded me a lot of Eureka. It was a really nice touch to an exciting book.

It was good to learn with Akira about ghosts, for she did not know that much and she was learning along the way.

I really enjoyed how Akira was not the only one with talents, it was good to see others put theirs to good use. There were some interesting and unique talents.

The story was well written and beautiful. I am looking forward to the next one in the series.

4 out of 5 stars.
