Book Blurb

Jacob & Brodie star in Ghost House, exorcising demons for fun & profit. Too bad they don’t just play exorcists on TV.

Jacob is a former exorcism Agent for The Parliament of Twilight. Now he’s the star of Ghost House, another of those creepy ghost-hunting in quaint little towns kinda shows. He “exorcises” the ghosts & demons infesting the house, which are really big special effects and well-timed scares. It's not moral, but everybody goes home happy & the viewers are excited.

Brodie is Jacob's new co-host. He used to star on his own show about “spiritual redecorating” or something like that. He’s adorable, fluffy and everyone on the show loves him. Of course Jacob immediately hates him.

The boys are just getting to know each other & work out the kinks in their new partnership when an ominous letter arrives. Apparently Jacob might not be as retired as he thought.

Book Review

This is the first book by these authors I have read. I thought it sounded interesting as I do like paranormal and a story about ghosts, exorcisms, and a shadow society sounded like a whole lot of fun. The plot was a really good one and, for the most part, the writing kept me entertained and focused on the story.

Jacob is quite a unique character. On one hand he could be the most horrible, arrogant, entitled jerk I've ever seen. On the other hand he's a middle-aged man with some seriously horrifying events in his past that have shaped not only what he reveals of himself to others, but how close he allows anyone to get to him emotionally. He's an honest-to-goodness Exorcist who used to be an Agent for the Parliament of Twilight, a behind the scenes shadow society who deals with ghosts, demons, and paranormals of all kinds.

Brodie is young, innocent, sweet, and has a bit of psychic ability. He has been hired to be Jacob's sidekick on his show. You can imagine how Brodie feels when he discovers his idol is a fraud and the show is a fake. But when the mysterious letter arrives and Brodie is thrust into serious danger, he demands to know the truth about Jacob. Of course, Jacob being the giant jerk that he is, plays it all off and then leaves Brodie to go have fun! Oh he is annoying!

This was an interesting book and I did like the plot. I had some difficulties a few times with Jacob's incomprehensible selfishness and Brodie's equally unimaginable naïveté. The paranormal aspects were written well although rather gruesome in some parts and a little more background into the Parliament would have been illuminating. Overall it was a decent story and if you enjoy the things that go bump in the night along with some very interesting characters, blood, serious humiliation and redemption, then this might be for you.
