Eve from Haunted

I really liked seeing the glimpse into the after light that we saw in this book. Plus Eve is a total badass, butt kicking angel. Sounds cool right? Because it is. She’s also kind of a troublemaker which I found pretty hilarious sometimes. She’s also really protective when it comes to her daughter Savannah who is still alive. It was cool seeing Eve checking in on Savannah all the time while still having this whole other story. She’s one of those moms you’d love to have as your own because she’s so much fun and has these great morals. I was really impressed with her after actually getting to know her in this book.

Summary: Former supernatural superpower Eve Levine has broken all the rules. But she’s never broken a promise—not even during the three years she’s spent in the afterworld. So, when the Fates call in a debt she gave her word she’d pay, she has no choice but to comply.

For centuries one of the ghost world’s wickedest creatures has been loosed on humanity, thwarting every attempt to retrieve her. Now it has fall to Eve to capture this demi-demon known as the Nix, who inhabits the bodies of would-be killers, compelling them to complete their deadly acts. It’s a mission that becomes all too personal when the Nix targets those Eve loves most — including Savannah, the daughter she left on earth. But can a renegade witch succeed where a host of angels have failed?

I’ve read a few other books about ghosts but this one is my favourite so far. Any others I should know about? Happy reading!

  1. Love ghosts…. though my favorite one is probably Sadoko from “The Ring” by Koji Suzuki. The book is way more powerful than the movie (in either language).
