I love these stories! Ellie is exactly what I imagine a ghost hunter would be like. And the ending, such a cli ff hanger! I can't wait for book #7.

I’ve been reading this series from the beginning and the author always keeps his character’s genuine, the scares, well…scary, the suspense at the max and the fun stuff in all the right places. It’s almost Halloween and Ellie Jordan has a new case. It seems ghosts are threatening the owners and visitors at Pine Hollow Farm. It’s an important time at the farm. They expect record numbers to come for the haunted hayrides, the corn maze, and many other fun events. But restless spirits are putting a damper on things, causing the owners to cancel the big holiday bash. Ellie is called in when the ghosts start to threaten the family and enter their home. She’s going to need all her skills to trap multiple ghosts. And they aren’t going quietly into the night. The author really writes Ellie as genuine. She’s scared stiff a lot of the time but still makes a stand against the ghosts. Often getting knocked on her butt. And her assistant, Stacey. You can always count on her snark to lighten the bleakest of moments. I knew this was going to be scary good. I drew on memories of when I was young and our family used to visit a farm like this. I thought it was fun but also got scared pretty good when we went on the hayride. It’s dark in those woods. There were some super creepy ghosts for Ellie and her snarky sidekick, Stacey , to deal with. As I got deeper into the book, Halloween drew closer and the suspense grew. The holiday is the time of year for ghosts. They’re free to roam and there are so many at the farm. As bad as the ghosts already were, I hated to think what was in store for everyone once Halloween night arrived. Every time I read a new Ellie Jordan book I cross my fingers, hoping it will be as good as the last one. The author made me a happy camper as I loved this book. If you haven’t had a chance to start this series, you really should. There’s plenty of hauntings and scares to keep any horror fan happy.

Venturing out into the country and away from Savannah, Ellie and Stacy must work to figure out who and what is haunting a family farm. With little information to go on, this may very well be one of their hardest cases to solve since we’ve starting following them. So pull out your thermal goggles and tactical flashlight and get ready for one heck of a spooky ride! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love everything about it: the pumpkins, the decorations, the spooky feelings it invokes. I cannot get enough. So when I read the blurb for this one I was all in. Of course I would have been all in anyhow. I have loved following this series as it has grew to 6 books so far. 6 books!!! And by the looks of it, Bryan doesn’t seem too eager to shut it down any time soon. (Woohoo!!) With each book the stories stay fresh and unique. I am in actual awe that Bryan writes them so well and spits them out so quickly. I look forward to each and every one. And towards the end of each book, I sometimes find myself slowing down so not to reach the end too soon. I hate to see them come to a close but I am always happy when I know there is another one soon to follow close behind. I am absolutely diggin' where Bryan is going with this series. Not that I have any idea where but you can tell there is an urgency-like the books are preparing us for something huge. I, for one, cannot wait. I love the creepy, tingly feelings I get from these books... and MAZE OF SOULS was probably one of favorites of the series. 5 Creeptastic Stars!

I am not a spoiler on anything, so I'll just say that with every book in this series, you can't help but fall more in love with each and every one of the main characters. This series is definitely progressing in to what seems inevitable territory, which only builds anticipation towards the next book. Loved this one so much that I really either wanted another hundred pages, or for the next book to be done and ready to on read immediately - I wasn't ready for it to end! Anxiously waiting for the next book!

I just saw the book was available last night, bought it, and stayed up half the night reading it. One thing I like about this series is that they are not so short you feel ripped off, and yet they are long enough to give you a good flavor of the story and the characters within the situation they find themselves. They can easily be read in a handful of hours or less - and I enjoyed this one better than book 5, though still not as much as the earlier novels. Ellie continues to wrestle with fevered dreams of Anton Clay, the pyromaniac spirit who killed her parents when she was younger, and he will never stop until he has Ellie too. Working to trap or chase off other ghosts helps to keep her mind off of this one particular ghost. But work also has complications of its own when Calvin, her boss, tells her the sale of the business to a paranormal investigating conglomerate is a go. Now her surrogate father is moving far away, and Ellie feels as if she's being fed to the wolves. Thank God she still has sidekicks in Stacey, her technical assistant, Jacob, their accountant psychic, and Michael, her firefighter boyfriend. But in this segment, many of the relationships are about to change. About an hour from Savannah, a family farm near a small town has seen the ghostly activity pick up when they decide to try to make the inherited farm profitable by hosting a Halloween oriented pumpkin patch, corn maze, and haunted woods, turning the once sleepy property into the latest in agri-entertainment. But the ghosts are not happy about the hundreds of roaming strangers or the family occupying the farmstead and interrupting their nocturnal activities - and things become so dangerous the family has to close up shop. Ellie, Stacey and Jacob definitely have their hands full with this one, and with so many ancient ghosts Ellie begins to wonder if this will be a haunting the spirits will win. Like I said, I enjoyed this story more than the last one because we once again were brought back to Ellie's personal struggles with the mystery surrounding the loss of her parents, the ghost of Anton Clay, and the question of what will happen to her now that Calvin has made the sale of his business official. We are nicely led along as the mystery unfolds by showing the reader instead of resorting to too much telling. However, to a weirdo like me who reads too much and who knows too many things about history, the mystery was very easy to deduce. And the other situation (sorry, can't say anymore without giving something away) was so obvious from the start that I couldn't believe Ellie or Jacob didn't pick up on it at all, what with Jacob being psychic. In other words, there was little here that didn't turn out as expected. But I still enjoyed the story and was rather freaked out by how a couple of things were portrayed. Shiver me timbers! There was also a sense that this story was rushed without fully fleshing out some of the characters (particularly the family and that whole dynamic) as in previous books, situations that weren't adequately investigated, etc. But the biggest issue I had with this novel is that editing appears to have been quite rushed. I was very surprised at some of the more basic mistakes such as words missing, transposed, or the wrong word used (like bad instead of bed for one). There were also two very glaring continuity issues that stuck out. On one page, we're told Ellie heard back from Grant and that the property was too far away to be part of t
