I am super excited to share my review with you today on blog tour for the Spirit Girls by Dawn Merriman….Which is out now!
“Where are you taking me?” Rylan follows the figure through the trees. The girl’s dark ponytail swings as she turns back, then walks on without answering. Deep in the woods, she disappears… and Rylan finds her body, mouth wide in a silent, final plea for help.
Rylan Flynn has always been able to see what others don’t—the restless spirits haunting Ashby, Indiana. She’s learned to live with her “gift” but sometimes she longs to escape.
The woods have always been a peaceful place for Rylan. But on a visit to her aunt’s cabin, she catches sight of a spirit in the trees. The ghost of a young woman approaches, leading Rylan to her body.
With a flood of horror, Rylan realizes that the girl, Celeste Monroe, has been murdered. An outgoing newcomer to town, Celeste had no enemies. Who on earth would want to see her dead?
When a coin carved with strange symbols is discovered in Celeste’s throat, it’s clear that a twisted, cold-blooded killer is at work.
Rylan’s abilities could be the only way to prevent further deaths. But Ashby’s handsome head detective, Ford Pierce, has made it very clear that he doesn’t want her help.
And any unexplained knowledge of the case could make Rylan the perfect suspect.
When another body is discovered and blood at the scene points to Rylan’s family, she is more determined than ever to uncover the truth. She must race against time to untangle a web of dark secrets… but can she find answers before the murderer claims another victim?
A heart-pounding mystery with a touch of romance, The Spirit Girls begins a new series of paranormal thrillers that are impossible to put down. If you love urban fantasy or psychic thrillers by Heather Graham and Wendy Wang, this book will grab you from the first page and never let go.
This is the first book in the series and I always get excited to hear that a new paranormal series is out. And OH MY WORD what a fantastic start to a series this is. It is absolutely brilliant. Something that little bit different and pure ecapism.
There is so much I want to say about this book but I don’t want to give to much away. What i can tell you is, that we follow a story about murder with a mixture of paranormal when we meet Rylan who is gifted and can see and hear dead people. With an OMG opening I was hooked from start to finish and loved everything about it.
I must say that I actually listened to this on audio and I literally couldn’t stop listening to it. The Spirit Girls is totally addictive and incredibly twisty. The narrator’s done a brilliant job bringing the story to life. I felt like I was watching it on television. Not forgetting it is only 5 hours and 48 mins long! This is a quick and easy listen which takes you out of the zone and gives you pure entertainment.
Rylan is a brilliant strong character. I am looking forward to finding out more about her in the next book.
It is perfect for fans of Caroline Mitchell. Grab yourself a copy on the link below.
