So now I've got that little bit off my chest let's review Ghost Light, this is the third instalment for Ivy, she knows who she is now, that her father is the King of the Wisps (as in Will-o'-the-Wisp)
Her and Jinx's (best friend and business partner) business Private Eye is flourishing due to the fact Ivy was instrumental in saving the town of Harborsmouth from the blood thirsty each usiage, and solving the murder of five Fae victims.
On a mundane shopping trip with Jinx she sees her boyfriend's (Ceff the King of the Kelpie's!) murderous ex across the road, in a blink she's gone, leaving Ivy glowing! Not knowing her father could kill Ivy as her Wisp powers are starting to evolve and if she can't glamour up quickly the Fae will do what it takes too keep their secret!
That night the business phone starts ringing off the hook the door being knocked on, parents of all different type of Fae are wailing begging for Ivy's help, their children have disappeared from their beds and no one knows where they've gone, it's up to Ivy to find the children using her gift!
I found this book to be much better than Blind Sight, the little foibles of the first book that let it down are missing here, the book does not rush the last chapters as Blind Sight did, in fact the book is perfectly left open for the next book Club Nexus.
There are new characters in this book we meet Sir Torn and the Cat Sidhe.
As I've said before this is a really different take on a well used
Premise, Ivy isn't the norm for a female lead, she is also an unwilling hero, her fear of touch, though we are starting to see some change in her, is still fore front in her mind, it was nice to see the evidence of her Wisp brethren though I am wondering how E.J Stevens is going to explain that up till now apart from Ivy's father and Ivy they all seem to be little light blobs, why?
E.J Stevens has well researched her Fae, and isn't frightened to use the less flashy one's, I also love that vampires are not the beautiful haunted beings in most books but instead they are nothing more than dried husks with a penchant for property ownership and being Landlords.
Oh and the cheat sheet for pronunciation is brilliant.
In this book, the author made the story accessible even for those who haven't read the beginning yet for that reason, i'm guessing, a lot of repetitions were used..not exactly repetition in this book but several whole passage were copied from book 1 either to introduce the universe or explaining the reasoning of Ivy...for me it cut my interest in the book at several occasion as simply it was still too fresh in my mind from book 1...after 2 thirds of the story though those "repetitions" disappear and i was again completely immersed and enjoying the story a lot. However, for those who have read the first instalment "Shadow Sight" first , i think you would do well to read the novella "Blood and Mistletoe" as well before starting this one. Now i haven't read it yet even if own it so i can't be sure it will fill the blank but for example Ivy speak a lot about Jenna and how she helped and trained her etc and that isn't explained in book 1. I'm hoping reading the novella will fill the blank and clear the confusion i felt sometimes.
That being said when the investigation really starts it's really an interesting one and we can see how the path Ivy is taking will be difficult. We learn more about her father and she is starting to remember her past with him better as well , she also dares to look into it. I really appreciated how she was maturing and trying to protect her friends and her lover ( that part was quite sweet)...now it ends with a cliffhanger not hard but still it angered me a little. So this is a good series i plan to continue but not in the near future either.
