Ellie Jordan's next job takes her to this neighborhood that was abandoned in the middle of building due to insufficient funds. Now, there are just a couple of people here and there, living in some of the complete houses. But it's all for the best, I suppose, seeing as how it turns out that the whole place is pretty much haunted--an abandoned railroad nearby, particularly.
I unfortunately wasn't that into this ghost story, the history, I suppose, as much as I was the last book, The Crawling Darkness. Personal preference, is all, I guess. This does not by any means mean that it wasn't a good book, because it totally was! This is actually one of my most favorite ghost series ever! It has some very interesting ghost mythology, which I obviously love. In The Crawling Darkness we had this shape-shifting entity that basically used your own fears against you. It was creepy as hell (And one of my favorite books ever!) In Terminal, he have a family in this abandoned neighborhood that hires Ellie and the team because of a wailing ghost in their basement. Turns out it's a banshee! It's not really the wailing women who predict when someone is about to die from Irish mythology, but it's similar! This used to be a real person who is now, well dead. I thought this was very cool and interesting.
I absolutely love the concept of this series, with all the ghost hunting equipment that gives it a Ghost Hunters feel (love that show!), yet it has it's own unique take at the same time. Plus we also get a psychic, Jacob, who is actually pretty awesome! And Terminal was very fun and creepy (in a good way!) and just very well written! I love all the characters: Ellie, Stacey, Jacob, Michael... and we even got to see others from previous books! I simply adore this series and cannot wait for more ghost hunting!
