Review--Spirit Storm by E.J. Stevens +CONTEST

Spirits of the Dead are coming...

Yuki is about to face an army of lost souls on Samhain, the night of Halloween, when the spirits of the dead roam free. Yuki will need all the help she can get from her friends, but will Calvin be there for her when she needs him the most?

I received this e-book from the author for review

E.J. Stevens' Spirit Storm was a good followup to She Smells the Dead. Samhain is drawing closer and Yuki is getting a little nervous, Samhain is when the dead walk the earth meaning more spirits will be visiting her. She wants to find a way to protect herself from the onslaught of spirits, but that's going to involve research.

That's not all though! There's also a werewolf killer on the loose and Yuki is worried for Cal since he is a werewolf, and a little worried for Simon as well. 

Quite a bit goes on despite the book being pretty short. The ghost of one of the dead werewolves haunts Yuki, with his smell--burnt brownies this time. And she wants to help him move on. But things go terribly wrong during the investigation. Which is all I will say for spoiler purposes.

Basically Yuki has a lot on her plate this time around and she has her friends at her side still to help out. What I liked most was Emma and Simon's bickering! I'm kinda seeing something brewing between those two. There's an age difference, but I can't recall if it was ever mentioned in exact years. But I like how they are always fighting! It's pretty comical.

The pacing was pretty decent again, rather fast paced as things moved along. One problem after another until the ending comes. It has a somewhat resolved ending, but there's definitely room for more!

Overall rating 4/5 stars
