Overview

Ivy Granger, psychic detective, thought she'd seen it all...until now.

With a vengeful lamia that only she can see on the city streets, reports of specters walking Harborsmouth cemeteries, and an angry mob of faerie clients at her office door, it's bound to be a long night. Add in an offense against the faerie courts and a few foolish bargains and one thing is clear--Ivy Granger is in some seriously deep trouble.

Ivy Granger is back, gathering clues in the darkest shadows of downtown Harborsmouth. With the lives of multiple clients on the line, she's in a race against time. Ivy finally has a lead to the whereabouts of the one person who can help her control her wisp abilities, but will she put the needs of her clients above her own?

If Ivy doesn't find a solution soon, she could wind up a ghost herself.

    Really great second book! It didn't have the terrible book 2 in

    Really great second book! It didn't have the terrible book 2 in a series curse, which I was very thankful for. The plot was ingenious and really pulled on your heartstrings. Good thinking E.J.!!  However,  I do wish that ending was a little more powerful. Regardless it was a great read and I am still a huge fan of the series. Paranormal fans if you haven't picked up this series yet, what is wrong with you?

    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!!!

    I received an e-book from the author in exchange for an honest review

    I find myself enjoying the Ivy Granger series more and more with each passing installment. Granted, we're only in book 2, but with the novella, Blood and Mistletoe, which takes place between books 1 and 2 we're up to three stories so far. Each installment not only takes us deeper into the supernatural world of Harborsmouth, but main character Ivy experiences quite a lot of growth.

    Speaking of Ivy's growth, she kicked serious ass in Ghost Light! Ivy has second sight so touching a person or object will thrust her into a vision (usually not a pleasant one) and she's learning ways around her vulnerabilities that allow her to actively protect those weaker than she is and those that she loves. This allows her to engage when trouble comes her way which is what I like to see in my heroines. Ivy also makes some excellent headway in her romance with Kelpie king, Ceffyl, and there's finally some touching (not very explicit but still touching!) going on there too!

    Ghost Light has a couple of focuses that entwine a bit. There's Ivy's case to find missing fae children and also her search into her own background as a wisp. I really enjoyed learning more about Ivy's personal history and the tidbits she finds out about her fae background. I was a bit surprised that her case wrapped up so quickly at around 3/4 into the book. But I can see why; there was a very tight deadline of finding the children in one day so that really had to be the driving focus. This drove the story hard and fast. The last 1/4 was a bit slower in pace, but still enjoyable. This is when Ivy and Ceff explore new avenues in their relationship, Ivy finds more out about her father, Will-O'-the-Wisp, and even takes a jaunt into the Celtic realm of Mag Mell. All of this sets us up for book 3!

    We're introduced to some new characters and more variety of fae in Ghost Light. My favorite being Sir Torn, the Cat Sidhe Lord, who is rather Cheshire-like with his disappearing into shadows. He's quite roguish in cat and human form and I'm looking forward to seeing him again!

    Overall, Ghost Light is an excellent read and this Urban Fantasy series needs to be on your TBR and shelves!

    Handle with Care

    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.

    This series is really getting super great! I love all the different types of Faeries! It's fun to go into all the Faerie types, and not just the typical faeries. I read this in no time; the story was fast paced and interesting, and kept me intrigued. Ivy is an awesome heroine, and her strength really shines through. All of the characters are interesting, and they were so entertaining! I look forward to the next books in the series, and I'm excited to see where Ivy's adventures take her!

    Review From My Urban Fantasies

    Review originally posted on My Urban Fantasies.
    (myurbanfantasies.blogspot)

    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.
