Child of the Ghosts 4.3 out of 5 based on 2 ratings. 156 reviews.

This is a very well done fantasy novel. Not super complex, and a few major points fairly predictable, but it's good. There's a lot that goes on that's not predictable and doesn't play out to cliche. The main character faces a number of moral dilemmas that she deals with in somewhat nuanced ways. I also really liked the Mediterranean and middle eastern mixed with Roman feel to the world, a welcome change from English & French mythology.

I never expected to enjoy a free listing this much. I am now a fan and have added other titles by this author to my wish list.

This book was fun, well-paced, and engaging. If you like sorcery and revenge, girl heroines and happy endings, this is a book for you. Not deep, nor complex, this book is an easy read that'll keep you turning the pages. Best of all, it's free.

Shame on Barnes and Noble for allowing people to give a plot spoiling book report instead of a short non-revealing review. If i see more the 4 lines that somone wrote I skip that review; I know its one of the parasites that ruin a book by giving the whole story away. Go away....we want to read the book for ourselves!!!!!

I enjoyed this book. Only one part at the end I didn't like. Can't say for those that haven't read it yet. I liked it enough to read the next book.

Caina is my new hero. Just a gripping book from page one. 296 nook pages, that are hard to put down. I am eagerly anticipating new adventures with Caina

Since i bought the omnibus edition...first three..i find it meddlesome to not be able to continue the series in order...so i most likely will not continue to bother..as gaps are somewhat hard to bridge. Sad..really because the storyline should benefit for continuity and Moeller has a great feel for his subject.

The story of this book relates to the main character, Caina, and her life - what it was like in early childhood, the betrayal that happens, her strength of character and how it matures and is helped along by the Ghosts. On the whole, I enjoyed this book. It was detailed enough that you could understand how decisions had been made and what roughly was going to happen. The decision for Caina to join the Ghosts in based on one simple fact, she can no longer have children. Some reviewers have found it strange that a child herself could make such a decision based on that fact alone but really, that is just part of it. What she has endured all her life, from her mother and then from the betrayal, kidnapping etc all form part of that decision and I for one could understand and respect that. The villain is evil through and through and has no redeeming qualities which makes it easy to 'hate' him. This book is well-written, with a plot that moves along nicely and some surprises that I didn't see coming at the end of the book. This is book one of a series (6 further books in this series at the last count). Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Was suprised by the good flow of words. The story moved at a good clip it might have helped to have a map of the places as the main cartor moves around a lot.
