I'm so in love with this series! Let me just say, that I AND Ivy
I'm so in love with this series! Let me just say, that I AND Ivy got my wish in this book but I won't tell you what it is, because you NEED to read this series yourself. All news twists, and fanatical crazy ex after Ivy, children going missing, exposing your new self to the Fae world, all the while getting to be with that HAWT piece of a Kelpie King. Seriously, you are missing out if you haven't read this series!
Ivy is changing. She never wanted to touch ANYTHING because of her gift/curse. Now, she is willing to risk everything and touch almost anything to make sure she can save those kids. Her character is going through a wonderful growth and I am loving that I get to see it happen before my eyes. With her wisp background coming to light, and her figuring out a few things, it's looking like it's going to get crazy, which of course it does. And you also see that kids are Ivy's weakness, and strength. She is willing to go through a serious amount of harm to save them. No matter the race, species, type, she will always put herself in harms way for kids. I love this about her. She has excellent morals :)
I must say, if Ceff wasn't Ivy's, I'd totally be fighting for him. Hands down he is just wonderful. I mean, I want him, but I will stand down gracefully because I have no chance. Ivy has earned Ceff's love. And I am definitely rooting for them ALL THE WAY!!! GO Team Ivy & Ceff!!
I will also say that there are some excellent secondary characters. You get to see her witch friend, and Hobbs, and Marvin, and Jinx, and that wonderfully sexy Cat Sidhe king. He's definitely an interesting addition. But all hands on deck for the bad guys! And for the crazy ex, Museline. I mean, she scares the crap outta me! I am creeped out to no end! Let me just tell you, that in order to fully get how cool this characters are, you'd have to read this series. You will NOT regret it. The plot is extremely well done. I thought I had it figured out, and then there's always that little twist, that makes you realize you might have had an inkling to the end, but never the whole deal. It was very well done! I am definitely hooked, and the author has reeled me in, put me in her ice chest, and I am only waiting for my fish fry! LOL Hopefully I won't have to wait too long for the next book. I am in serious need already of more Ivy and the gang!!! 5 EXCEPTIONALLY MAGNIFICENT PAWS!!!

Ghost Light is the second installment in the Ivy Granger, Psychic Detective Series. Ivy was born with a unique ability to see emotionally charged images by using her sense of touch. She uses this “gift” to run her business in the fictional city of Harborsmouth. With her best friend, Jinx as her business partner, and roomie they work with the city’s more unusual cliental. (Namely the fae who inspired the original R rated versions of fairytales and the Bard.)
Ivy’s next test comes when a large group of fae children go missing. It’s rare in world of the fae to reproduce, so when their children are in danger it hits Ivy hard. Too bad everyone else isn’t as worried about the children as Ivy. In order to save them from certain death, Ivy must make several bargains that she won’t be soon to forget.
Overall, I enjoyed this novel. Ivy’s character continues to grow as she starts to come to terms with her own prejudices and her past. If you enjoy urban fantasy novels with a bit of horror interwoven into the details, then this series is for you.

Review From My Urban Fantasies
Review originally posted on My Urban Fantasies.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Another brilliant installment of the Ivy Granger series. Ghost Light takes place a couple of months after Blood and Mistletoe. After the fight with the redcaps, Ivy swore that she would never be unprepared for a fight again. Basic self defense is not enough. So Ivy and Jinx have been training with Jenna. Battle and weapons. Ivy has the moves, but Jinx has mad skills with projectile weapons. Her current favorite is a crossbow.
Ivy and Ceff are seriously dating now, despite being unable to touch. Stupid visions. For all the urban fantasy lovers who hate romance, there's no reason to worry, Ghost Light is still a book for you. There is just enough romance to keep things interesting. Ivy being a private detective and wisp princess is still the primary focus.
After an adventurous shopping trip with Jinx and depressing visit with Kaye, Ivy makes an impromptu visit to the harbor to call on Ceff. While walking back to her apartment with Ceff, Ivy receives an anxious call from Jinx. There are a horde of Fae outside their office, Private Eye detective agency, and the phone is ringing off the hook. They are emergency clients and Jinx fears that all their cases are connected. After talking to her new clients Ivy confirms Jinx's fears. The cases are connected. Thirty-three Fae children are missing.
I absolutely love it when Ivy is up to her elbows in trouble. It's when her strength shines through the most. Not to mention entertaining as hell. Now that Ivy has some battle training she also possesses a fierceness that was not in the previous books. I like it!
While Ivy is still my favorite character, there is a new character in Ghost Light that I love. Torn, actually Sir Torn, is Lord of the Harborsmith cat sidhe. Torn can shift from his natural state, a cat, into an oh so yummy human guise. I have two words for you; leather pants. *sigh* He's mischievous with the same snarky attitude that Ivy has. Torn has a bunch of battle scars; among them is a tattered left ear and a scar tissue covered right ear. In his human form all the scars remain. The thing I love most about Torn is that he embraces his many imperfections. Instead of hiding the scars on his arms he wears a leather vest. Torn turned many of the holes in his left ear into bone and feather piercings.
I again find myself eagerly awaiting the next installment of the Ivy Granger series. Especially if it contains a certain cat sidhe.
