Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper by J.L. Bryan

Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper, Book 1

Synopsis: Ellie Jordan’s job is to catch and remove unwanted ghosts. Part detective, part paranormal exterminator, Ellie operates out of Savannah, Georgia, one of the oldest and most haunted cities in North America.

When a family contacts her to deal with a disturbing presence in the old mansion they’ve recently purchased, Ellie first believes it to be a typical, by-the-book specter, a residual haunting by a restless spirit. Instead, she finds herself confronting an evil older and more powerful than she’d ever expected, rooted in the house’s long and sordid history of luxury, sin, and murder. The dangerous entity seems particularly interested in her clients’ ten-year-old daughter.

Soon her own life is in danger, and Ellie must find a way to exorcise the darkness of the house before it can kill her, her clients, or their frightened young child.

Review: Kindlemom always made me want to discover this series. By seeing all her wonderful reviews, I admit that I succumbed and I bought the first volume. Yes, how to resist it?

So here I am, launched into this ghost story! I love ghost stories! This book was then perfect for me! Ellie is a ghost hunter even though it is true that she does not often meet real ones. A new case, however, will make her confront with a terrifying spirit, a being who could hide a case even worse than what she thought! Accompanied by a new recruit Stacey and a psychic man, she will have to help this family who is terrified every night. But it is only the tip of the iceberg!

I really had a great time with this novel and I have already ordered the following book (I knew I would get there!). The author presents a terrifying story, terrible ghosts and a fascinating investigation! I could not wait to find out what happened in this house and find out who the big bad guy was. It should be noted that this novel is mainly based on the extermination of ghosts and the way the process is performed and this means that we have no romance. I thought it was nice for a change I must say even if I am curious to see if it will change afterwards.

I’m really happy to have started this series and I’m sure I’ll have a great time with the other novels!
