Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite Twenty-one-year-old college student Jolie Montgomery wakes up in an alley next to her corpse. She doesn’t remember what happened, how she ended up in the alley and who killed her. In her desperation for help and justice, Jolie stays close to the enigmatic Detective Avrianna Heavenborn, the one who’s investigating her case. Until Avrianna finds the person responsible for her brutal death, Jolie’s spirit will remain earth-bound and restless. Ghost of Death by Chrys Fey is a short paranormal story with less than 40 pages. It is a quick read, even more so with its fast-paced plot. The murderer is somewhat swiftly discovered and arrested. I do love short stories; some are much better read than lengthy novels. On the other hand, I wish Ghost of Death was lengthier. Author Chrys Fey has a good premise and a solid plot, which I think can be developed more with additional pages. That said, characterization is good and the prose is clear-cut. Detective Avrianna Heavenborn remains a mystery that will stir readers’ curious minds. I would love to know more about her past and her gift of being able to see and hear the dead. I hope Fey will come up with a sequel that centers on Avrianna Heavenborn. Overall, Ghost of Death is an enjoyable and fast paranormal read. Fey is evidently a talent to be reckoned with and no doubt has more great stories in her mind to be written. I’ll look out more of her work in this genre.

This is a short, easy read. If you love a good mystery, ghost stories, or anything with a hint of the supernatural, you can't go wrong here. Content Warning: Adult language, references to adult relations, a touch of gore.

Are you a ghost lover? Well, this is one you won’t want to miss. I love the etheral cover for Ghost of Death by Chrys Fey. The ghostly effect made me eager to read this wonderful and sometimes humorous novella about a murdered woman, who is now a ghost, and the investigation into her death. Jolie figured, if she had to be a ghost, she would be the best ghost she could be. She could walk through walls, but not tweet. I thought that was very funny and the writing set the tone for the rest of the story. Jolie doesn’t know how she died, but she watched as the police examined her crime scene. She had been going to college to be a journalist and noted everything in detail. Imagine watching the police document the scene, taking your body to the coroner’s office, watching the care and the feelings the workers put into their work. Imagine watching as your family identify your remains, wanting to reach out to them in their time of need, feeling their anguish and wanting to alleviate their pain. Jolie was watching the officer in charge of her case, Avrianna, pacing in her office. She shouted out in anger at her. Avrianna whipped around and shouted, “You know what? You need to stop shouting in my ear…” I busted out laughing. Didn’t see that coming at all. Avrianna is Jolie’s Ghost Whisperer. I loved that Chrys mentioned the TV show, Ghost Whisperer, with Jennifer Love-Hewitt. I used to watch the show every week and have been watching some reruns on ION TV. Jolie would find out first hand why earthbound spirits stay. This novella had it all for me: mystery, ghosts, a great storyline and characters that I loved. The humor sprinkled throughout the story helped to make up for the times when I wanted to cry for those left behind. I would highly recommend reading this fun story of Jolie and the detective that is determined to solve her case, if a murder mystery can be fun.
