From the New York Times bestselling author of Halo comes the start of a beautiful and powerful new series.

After the loss of her mother, Chloe Kennedy starts seeing the ghosts that haunted her as a young girl again. Spending time at her grandmother's country estate in the south of England is her chance to get away from her grief and the spirits that haunt her. Until she meets a mysterious stranger…

Alexander Reade is 157 years dead, with secrets darker than the lake surrounding Grange Hall and a lifelike presence that draws Chloe more strongly than any ghost before. But the bond between them awakens the vengeful spirit of Alexander's past love, Isobel. And she will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who threatens to take him from her.

To stop Isobel, Chloe must push her developing abilities to their most dangerous limits, even if it means losing Alex forever… and giving the hungry dead a chance to claim her for their own.

guest post



1. The Woman in Black, 

because who doesn’t love a good period horror film!? So much care and detail went into creating the atmosphere of the Eel Marsh House. The scares aren’t too frequent, but I think they’re worth waiting for. And that ending moment…actually, I’m writing this alone in my room and I better not think about it! Also, I should admit, that I was very attracted to Daniel Radcliffe in period costume. I can’t wait for the sequel with Jeremy Irvine *swoon*

2. The Others

This is one of my all-time favorites. “They’re everywhere – they say this house is theirs.” Doesn’t that just give you chills? This movie is a lot more subtle and suspenseful than the average horror film and Nicole Kidman is captivating. She plays a mother living in an isolated house just after the end of WW2. She has two children (Anne and Nicholas) who suffer from an allergy to light and as a result, the house must be kept in darkness. Then one day “the intruders” come. It’s a must-see!

3. The Shining

I wasn’t game enough to watch this movie on my own so I decided to watch it on a plane from New York to Los Angeles. So I started watching and half and hour in, I was sitting there thinking: “I don’t know why people make such a big deal about this movie, it’s not even scary…” and then the bathroom scene happened. And the old woman happened and I am forever traumatized. I repeat…FOREVER. That is all I have to say.

4. The Conjuring 

This was the first horror movie I’ve seen in a while, where you get a real good look at the monster. Anyone who has seen the film will know what I mean when I say the scene with “the thing” on top of the wardrobe is absolutely terrifying. I was expecting to just catch a glimpse of it; eye through a keyhole, shadow in the doorway sort of thing. But it was right THERE, looking at us. Yikes!

5. Scream (1996)

This was the first horror movie I saw as a kid and the opening sequence when Drew Barrymore gets her throat slit still scares me. The idea of someone getting into your home and trying to kill you is almost worse than any ghost! At least the ghosts aren’t wearing a creepy mask and coming at you with a butcher knife! I never saw any of the subsequent Scream movies.

    I love a good ghost story and still want to see The Woman in Black but I am also a big chicken so I have to work up to seeing scary movies. 😉

  2. Kim { Book Swoon }

    I know the scene exactly that you mention in The Conjuring! LOL, my daughter talked me into watching that one, and I think we screamed and lept off the couch nearly! I love a good ghost story filled with haunting atmosphere, so I’m making sure I have this on my tbr list for sure. Vengeful spirits, especially when it comes to a romance, make me shiver in the best of ways 🙂

  3. Nori

    I love ghost stories, but it takes a lot of effort to scare me usually unless it’s like an exorcism or something.

  4. Denise B

    Love ghost stories, this looks really good, although it would take quite a bit to really scare me.

  5. Carolsue

    I like ghost stories but I am not easily scared. I just think they are fun to read or hear about.

  6. laura thomas

    The Others caught me by surprise and that takes some doing. The Scream movies are wicked fun. I know the scene you are talking about in The Conjuring. Even though I knew something was going to happen, it still startled me. I’m not easily scared so it’s always a sign the movie or book is good if it creeps me out. I like to be scared!

  7. traci16

    I do love a great ghost story, although these days they are hard to find. I think we get desensitized due to all the horrors of every day life, so it is harder to scare us. I do still believe in the supernatural and some ghost stories still scare me….

  8. Linda romer

    Good morning Michelle, Ghost House sounds great. I do enjoy ghost stories, and I would say not so easily scared.

  9. Lee Broom

    I enjoy ghost stories…I get spooked a little or jumpy when watching scary movies or t.v. programs, but I like the thrill. I would love to win this!

  10. Sarah Bauman

    Can’t say that I have heard to many ghost stories, but I’m interested in reading some.

  11. Justin Disher

    I don’t read ghost stories as a general rule but I have read some of Stephen King’s novels which fit the genre.

  12. Heather Langston

    Depends on the type of “scary” as to whether I scare easily or not. 🙂 Absolutely LOVED “The Others”!!! Love things that kinda take me by surprise/make me say “Well…didn’t really see that one coming!” Actually, there’s one scene from “The Sixth Sense” that has stayed with me…involving the tent…if you know what I’m talking about. I still get the urge to put my head under the covers when I get to that part. lol And then there’s The Grudge…saw that old woman or whatever in the corner of my room for weeks after watching that movie…*shudders*

  13. Amber Terry

    I LOVE ghost stories! Anything horror/paranormal related, I love it 🙂 This book sounds so good. Thank you for the chance to win!

  14. Cami

    I do love ghost stories but I do find myself being a little more jumpy after I read them.

    I have not read that many ghost stories because I get easily spooked! No pun intended.

  21. kara

    I love ghost stories. I get scared very easy, but I love em. My imagination just runs, but its never anything gory. I authors that can write creepy stories that leave an impression have talent! I’m exited to read this and thanks!

  22. Lynda Thomas

    I like watching scary movies, but I haven’t read many ghost stories. I did when I was a kid, but for some reason I haven’t lately. I think it sounds like a fun read though! 🙂

  23. Brandi Goolsby

    Yes, I LOVE ghost stories! I used to also love to watch that ghost show with Jennifer Love Hewitt, what was it…..the Ghost Whisperer?

  24. Melanie S

    I’ve loved to read ghost stories since I was a pre-teen. I’m not really a big fan of being scared but I keep coming back to stories that scare me. It must get my adrenaline pumping
