    My new favorite series

    I loved the first book in the series, and this book wasn't a disappointment.

    When you think Halloween, you think candy. Costumes. Trick-or-Treating. Not Yuki. On Samhain, or the night of Halloween, Yuki will face an army of lost souls. But on top of that, there's a missing boy, a dead werewolf, and a murderer on the loose. Just when you think things can't get any worse, Calvin might not be there for Yuki when she needs him most.

    I loved this book. Am I the only one that things Simon and Emma would be really cute together? Too bad they waste most of their time bickering... Oh well. Anyways, if you loved the first book in the series, She Smells the Dead, then this is a must read. If you haven't read this series yet... then shame on you :P

    Yuki and Calvin's love for each other really showed in this novel. Their willingness to do anything for each other, and their reluctance to put the other in danger was really sweet. Emma's friendship with Yuki was not something to be ignored, and Simon... well, aside from being as arrogant as ever, he's actually not as bad as before ;)

    I marveled at Yuki's ability to pull through everything. Aside from having to find something to keep her sanity on Samhain, she also has to deal with most of the kids at the school disliking her, finding a murderer, a lost boy, and the fact that Calvin might fade from her life. Forever. Her strength through all this was incredible.

    This book, as with the book before, had an amazing blend of paranormal romance, action, goth, mystery, and adventure. There's a little something in it for everyone, and I strongly recommend this book.

    The thing that affected my rating was the author's tendency to jump around. You'd be reading about finding the murderer, and then suddenly they're looking for the amulet. The transitions through the problems and solutions could've, I feel, have been smoother.

    Thank you to the author for being kind enough to provide me with review copies to the books in this series, and I'm really looking forward to the release of the second book, Legend of Witchtrot Road. 4 out of 5 stars to Spirit Storm, and to those who haven't read this yet, get reading!

    "I was grasping for anything which might distract me, but thoughts of my grandmother only deepened my sense of guilt. I may be rebellious, but i wasn't the kind of girl to steal from anyone. Except now."-Yuki

    With Samhain fast approaching, Yuki finds herself vulnerable and unprepared for the bombardment of lost souls that will cry to her for help. Aside from being unprepared, Yuki and the others learn about the murder of Gavin Sanders-a werewolf. Upon further inspection, Simon catches the faint scent of another werewolf and items pinned beneath the body; wolfsbane, a silver bullet and a metal cross. Suspicions that there is a madman on a werewolf killing spree are confirmed when a younger werewolf is reported missing. Amidst the chaos in search for the murderer and the missing teen, Yuki is struggling to prepare herself from being driven insane on Samhain and discovers that an item called Nera's Amulet, found in Salem, can help her ward off the unwanted spirits.

    E.J starts the second installment in the Spirit Guide series beautifully. We are taken to a trying time for Yuki. She is in Salem the day before Samhain faced with a difficult choice-whether or not to steal a particular item, though it isn't mentioned until later chapters. We are then back tracked to a few days prior to that event where we are once again in the company of the characters we loved so much in She Smells the Dead. Yuki, our unique leading lady, is still struggling with her ability to smell the dead and the role she now plays with the werewolves. Calvin is still happily together with Yuki and beginning to adjust to his new status as alpha. *Sigh* Alpha Calvin is way dreamy, i was swooning the entire time. Emma's role escalates in this installment and she becomes twice as humorous, i absolutely love her. Simon is still the older play boy who obviously doesn't know when to stop his flirtatious advances, though i have to admit i can't imagine the story without him. Simon and Emma's constant bickering is the perfect comedic relief. Spirit Storm is twice as dark, mysterious, and exciting as it's predecessor, She Smells the Dead. I am highly anticipating the release of E.J's third installment in the Spirit Guide series, Legend of Witchtrot Road.

    Another great book in this series!

    Spirit Storm is the second book in the Spirit Guide series by E.J. Stevens. In Spirit Storm, Yuki is trying to figure out a way to survive the Samhain, which is a night where all the ghost spirits roam about. Yuki and her friends must figure out a way to keep the spirits from driving Yuki crazy, literally! This series is so much fun! I¿ve really enjoyed reading it.

    I really love the characters in the book. Yuki is so great; she¿s one of those really likable characters that you just have to love. Her relationship with Cal is so cute. Cal is a great boyfriend as well. (Love him!) Yuki¿s BFF, Emma, is a great character as well. I love everything that she stands for. Simon, Cal¿s right hand man, is growing on me more and more every time I read about him. I¿m a little curious as to what will happen with him in the next book.

    The book was very fast paced, and the storyline was very interesting. I always learn something new when reading one of E.J.¿s books, and I really enjoy that so much.

    Overall, this is a great series to check out. If you want a quick, enjoyable read, you should definitely check out this series. I¿m really looking forward to starting the 3rd book in the series, Legend of Witchtrot Road, really soon!

    Happy Reading!
