Description

Book 8 is out now.

When her dormant psychic abilities are awakened by a near-death experience, a young woman discovers, to her horror, that she can now see the dead. Terror turns to chaos when the ghosts begin stalking her and the paranormal bleeds into every aspect of her life.

THE SPOOKSHOW is a macabre, fast-paced supernatural series about how the paranormal disrupts one woman's fate. Billie Culpepper fears that she's drifting through her own life when her latent psychic ability is suddenly awakened. But the dead can also see her, and they demand to be heard. As Billie struggles to adapt, dark secrets about her past threaten not only her own future, but that of her friends as well. Imagine, if you will, the eerie world of American Horror Story descending on the characters from Girls.

  • Very spooky

    I enjoyed the ghostly tale (which was indeed spooky ) as far as it went, however it all felt a bit - shallow - for the want of a better word. Like there was no depth to the story. Also the ending just wasn't an ending, even allowing for the fact that this is one in a series of books.
  • Spooky!

    I really enjoyed this. It sucked me in and held me. It has a great balance of creepy (verging on Horror) and emotional depth in very real characters. We're introduced to Billie, a young woman who two months before came out of a coma to find she could see ghosts. She's not thrilled with her new found talent (she's like a snail pulled into her shell and who could blame her for wanting to stay there). No matter how determined she is to avoid the dead, curious friends (who want to visit a local 'haunted house' drag her into a larger nightmare. This is very well written and though told mainly from Billie's perspective, we do get other characters points of view (which I love). I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next. At the end of this book there is a link that allows one to sign up for the author's newsletter and get book two for free. So if, like one of the other commenters noted, book two is book one...and one is two...problem solved. I'll be buying book three to find out what happens next.
