This is the third book in the Spirit Guide Series and all our favorite characters are back plus some new faces. This is definitely Simon's story and the beginning of Gordy's. We learned in the last book, Spirit Storm of Simon's tragic loss. In this book, it comes looking for him in the form of the younger brother. He's cocky, arrogant and a spoiled brat. And no one likes him. Not even Cal, who tries to get along with everyone. Welcome to the pack!The story in this one starts out with the loss of a football player who crashed his motorcycle on Witchtrot Road. Some of the team is taking it very hard. Yuki is smelling his scent impression. And the J-team, that would be Jay and Jared of the football team, not the sharpest knives in the drawer, have decided to blame Yuki, "the witch" for putting a curse on him and killing him. Unfortunately, Cal has to rescue her from these Neanderthals, and Yuki has to rescue them from his wolf that almost takes hold. Neither one are very quick to catch on. They later trap Yuki in a storage closet with the whole football team having told them she has cursed them all. Yuki knows how to get out of a sticky situation, it's just lucky she can communicate with her feet! The J-team is definitely someone Yuki has to look out for during this book-bullies picking on someone that's different.But the real trouble is Gabriel, the new wolf in town, who's gunning for Simon. And he wants to make Emma his mate. As if? The matchmaking going on in this novel is interesting to say the least, and the trouble is not the paranormal kind. The Legend of Witchtrot Road may be about a witch wrongly accused, but the things going on there are even scarier. Flying frozen toads and upside down cars. And just at the full moon Emma and Yuki decide to investigate. What were they thinking???This caper is definitely scary. The danger is of a much more human nature and the accident Yuki and Emma have is surreal. It's how the book starts out and you have to go through almost the whole book to see if they are okay. And then there are those pesky dreams Yuki keeps having about the witches she stole the Amulet of Nera from. She's gotta find a way to get it back to them, but she needs it's protection. And there's still the J-team to worry about, especially when Cal isn't around.This is my favorite of the three Spirit Guide Series stories. Probably because the stories are getting more complex and Yuki and Cal's relationship is deepening. I love the banter between Simon and Emma. It lightens the mood in sometimes tense situations throughout the series. And it doesn't hurt Simon's charms that he tacks, Love, on to every sentence he addresses to Emma and Yuki. (He had me at hello, love.) Again, the mystery isn't stressful, but the issue of bullies is addressed in this one and how Yuki has always been bullied and her wishes always ignored even by the teachers. And always as resolutions come to some things, questions arise about others.I can't wait for the next book in this series. The are so much fun to read! The descriptions are rich but not heavy and they mysteries or spirit problems just don't feel heavy and dark. I think because Yuki never has to face anything alone. She's always got her friends and in this novel, it really helps. If you've enjoyed the other Spirit Guide stories, you'll love this one. If you haven't tried them, then get your feet wet with She Smells The Dead! October is the best month to read this series as the first two occur right around Halloween! So don't wait! And make sure you read this one! It's great! But She Smells the Dead will always have the best title of all YA books I've ever read!
