Synopsis:

An angry poltergeist is stirring up trouble at Buffalo Bill’s grave, and Clare and Zach have been hired to investigate. Assisting them on the case as usual is their ghost dog Enzo, but they’re also aided by the restless ghost of Bill’s friend, Texas Jack. Meanwhile, the most well-known psychic in Denver is angered by Clare’s involvement in the case and will do whatever it takes to stop her.

Of course, facing threats both living and undead are nothing new for Clare and Zach. Their relationship has weathered many storms. But there is a growing danger inside of Clare that could tear them both apart…

Quick & Dirty: Clare, Zach and Enzo are back trying to help a new ghost and facing a new danger!

Opening Sentence: “It’s a poltergeist messing with Buffalo Bill’s grave!” enthused the sixties-something guy who’d called the Denver police.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

Clare and Zach get the call that there is a poltergeist at Buffalo Bill’s grave, but when they arrive Clare is pretty sure she won’t be able to help him as he died in 1917 and she can only see and talk to ghosts from the time period 1850-1889. Clare quickly finds that Texas Jack is the ghost at the grave, but he isn’t the poltergeist. He says the poltergeist is a fairly new ghost. Clare knows she has a lot on her plate if she has to help Texas Jack and try to help the poltergeist as well. On top of it all, a well-known physic is on the case as well and he wants to prove that Clare is a fake.

He even ambushes Clare with the press but ends up looking like a fool when the ghost is from Clare’s time period and she helps Clare prove that she is actually talking to a ghost. Clare doesn’t know just yet how dangerous of an enemy she has made this time. Soon Zach and Clare are on the trail of figuring out what Texas Jack is still hanging around and who the mysterious poltergeist that is messing with Buffalo Bill’s grave. Worst of all, the wound she sustained from the last book is still bugging her.

This is a good little series as each book progresses Clare learns a little more about her abilities and limitations. In this book, Clare and Zach’s relationship also takes major steps forward as well and that was great to see. Overall, these are all quick easy reads. I like them, I just don’t love them. I think I finally figured out why. For me, one of the things I like about a long series is the deeper mystery. Every little book can solve a case or address some part of an issue, but each book should first raise questions and then as you go along slowly answer them and add more. That’s one of the things that I really love about a long well-done series.

Ghost Seer at least in my opinion, hasn’t reached that depth yet, there are cases in every book, and she is learning and gaining in her abilities. But there isn’t or doesn’t appear to be a deeper story, that being said it isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s just what I prefer when reading trilogies or a longer series.

Notable Scene:

“Desiree deals with the living.” A tendril of old resentment, like a nasty black worm wriggled through Clare before she crushed it. Desiree saw auras of the living, couldn’t even sense Enzo. Clare was stuck with ghosts who touched her with chill fingers and where the icy experience worsened by double or triple when she touched them. Not to mention the close calls she often had when sending a major phantom on. “I don’t deal with the living like Desiree or you.”
