Blurb:

Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that’s not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it’s not a fiery inferno, it’s certainly no heaven. It’s gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn’t leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what’s really on her mind.

Bonesaw.

Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she’s figured out just how to do it. She’ll haunt him for the rest of his days.

It’ll be brutal... and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen’s obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she’s willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can’t help herself when it comes to breaking rules... or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

My Rating:

Really cool Purgatory picture :)
A very Supernatural Purgatory ;)
(That reminded me a lot of the shadowquake tentacle things!)
Velveteen Monroe was murdered by a psychopathic serial killer (not that there's any other kind of serial killer, I suppose, lol). Unfortunately for her, she didn't make the cut for Heaven. Fortunately, she didn't go to Hell, either. She is stuck in what is known as Purgatory, which is very gray, dreary, and deteriorating with every passing shadowquake. Shadowquakes are as they sound: they are basically earthquakes, but in Purgatory. They are caused when the dead cross into the living world, which is a big No-No! Bad Ghostie! The bigger ones happening when Bad, Bad Magic is done on said plane, especially when using enslaved souls. I guess it's sort of an action-reaction sort of deal, with Purgatory getting the bad end of things. And by bad I mean giant, scary, tentacle-like things coming from the sky and snatching up the souls and... well, I'm not sure. But horrors happen when those things touch you!

Blurb:

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.

My Rating:

When I read this book, I had already read two horror novels before this one. I was on a horror novel reading streak, you could say, and Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper really satisfied my need for even more horror!
