Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Since discovering her ability to travel outside her body, Zoë Martinique has used her paranormal abilities in her sleuthing. Now, as she discovers additional powers that are both exhilarating and frightening, she becomes vulnerable to enemies who seek to use her gifts for their own nefarious ends. When her mother, who is aware of her daughter's gifts, disappears, Zoë must find her at the risk of her increasingly fragile hold on her humanity. This follow-up to Weldon's debut urban noir paranormal mystery, Wraith, provides intriguing background information on Zoë's birth and sets the stage for further adventures. Fans of urban fantasy and supernatural detective stories should enjoy this foray into the borderlands between life and death. For most fantasy collections.

    Entertaining, but a wee bit annoying.

    If I read the phrase "mental note: (insert note here)" one more time in a Zoe Martinique novel, I am going to indulge in self-inflicted pain. We get it. The character likes her internal dialogue. But the book is written first person. If its part of the book, the character is obviously thinking it, therefore it's a mental note. Pointing that out is just redundant. The reader isn't stupid, I hope. Aside from that serious pet peeve of mine, this carries on the story well. It's fast-paced, humorous and with a well-twisted plot. Just please leave the character adolescent tendencies (the use of "!!!" for surprise, the constant bemoaning about sex, the bunny slippers....) out of the next novels. It was cute the first time around. Now it's just irritating.

    Weldon brings Zoe to life.

    Weldon continues the story of Zoe as she changes from 100% human to ??? The reader is left with the decision to discover if Zoe will end up evil at the end of this tail. She definitely needs to learn what she is and how to deal with it. Right now Weldon still has her stumbling around trying to discover herself. Not my favorite "paranormal" series but still a lot of fun to read.

    greatest ghostish story ever!! GOTTA READ THE NEXT ONE

    this book picks up a little after wraith ended and then keeps going, delivering plot twist after plot twist. zoe has come to terms with being a wraith and is now sent on a mission to make up for her blunder with one of her most loyal employers. little did she know that this mission would throw her into a whole new realm of supernatural and scary stuff. you will not want to put the book down, i know i didn't and i've had several late nights as a result. but i hate being left on the edge of something so i will again be waiting impatiently for the next installment of the zoe martinique investigation.

    Great urban fantasy

    While walking out of her body one day Zoe Martinique clashed with a Sybiont she calls Trench Coat from the Abysmal plane. She changes into a Wraith when something happens to her or her loved ones. When she is OOB and Wraith, Zoe is not human, but Other. Trench Coat took her voice and gave her his mark on her hand. Zoe is able to use her new powers as a Traveler and a Wraith to work as a private investigator.------------ Since she hasn¿t completed her last assignment for Maherba, she is forced to acceptfor him her them or it an assignment at a benefit at the Atlanta¿s Westin Plaza where she is to listen in on a conversation between Congressman March Knowles and Atlanta based businessman Francisco Rodriguez. She hears about two groups, a shipment and something in it that two groups want. She learns these groups somehow linked to three homicides with missing body parts from each victim. Two groups want to catch Zoe in order to control or kill her, but she does her best to elude them while her powers grow. However even she is not strong enough to override the Compulsion of the Command Eidolon that one of her adversarial group¿s leaders places on her. She is his to command unless her friends can free her.-------------- The supernatural beings are fascinating characters in SPECTRE whether they are daimon, symbiont, shade or ghost as each has a distinct personality. Zoe remains ignorant as to the extent of her powers or how much they will expand, but though she is often more Other than human and the Wraith is her dark side, she remains an independent free thinker trying to do what she believes is morally right for humanity. This is a great urban fantasy that will have fans anxiously waiting for the next installment in Zoe¿s saga.-------------- Harriet Klausner
