SYNOPSIS: “Fairbanks, Alaska is a city filled with colorful characters and I was one of them. Since I was a teenager, I’ve seen spirits and ghosts walking among us. There’s a lot more of them than you might think.”
A young woman reaches out from beyond the grave, and a reluctant clairvoyant, Allysen Coles, answers her pleas to solve a decades-old murder. With the help of her friends-a spiritually magnetic computer programmer and a hockey-playing priest—Allysen uncovers something far more sinister than murder. In the long, dark winter of Fairbanks, things aren’t always what they seem.
REVIEW: Allysen Coles moves to Fairbanks, Alaska to get away from everything. She wanted away from her family, her husband’s family and her past. She had an accident and ever since she can see spirits or ghosts.
She has been seeing a woman in her dreams who she believes needs her help. She sees her murder over and over. Allysen doesn’t know what to do until she is contacted by her friend Harry who can sense spirits but not see them. There is a doctor who needs their help. He thinks he may be crazy because there are things going on in his house that he can’t explain.
Allysen and Harry decide to try and help the doctor. There is more to the house than meets the eye and before she knows it Allysen is in way over her head. She is fighting not only for her life but her son’s, Harry’s and the priest that she has befriended who is trying to help her.
I liked this story it was very spooky in parts and I wouldn’t read it in the evenings. Not in a scary way but eerie way.
I like Allysen because she was stronger than she thought and when it came to protecting her son and friends there was no stopping her. The story had a steady pace and kept me guessing throughout it. You won’t figure out the story until the end. I can usually get some idea of what will happen with the story but not with this one.
I recommend this story.
