The first eighteen years of Echo Simmons' life have been less than ideal. On more than one occasion her parents have considered committing her. They don't believe she sees ghosts or that they harass her on a daily basis. So when a rogue ghost begins tormenting her, they're the last people she's going to tell. Her best friends Holden and Zara are doing their best to help, but ghost attacks are only the beginning of Echo's problems.
Handling the ghosts by giving them a voice on YouTube through her webshow has been her saving grace-even if her parents think it's all a hoax-but that gets a little complicated when the ghost of Madeline Crew reveals a little too much about her previous life and the FBI shows up at her door wanting to know how she gained access to long-buried government secrets.
It just keeps getting worse from there. Madeline's message to her great grandson sparks a strange connection between Echo and Malachi, which leads to Georgia, secrets, mistakes, love, lies, and life changing revelations.

This book is about 290pgs. More for YA, but enough to keep you interested. The characters are well rounded, and interesting plot . Overall 3.5 ***spoiler Echo was a hard character, I felt sympathy, but at times she seemed to whiney. Do the "keeers" really "love" their charges are is it more that they are just drawn to them? Gl to the writer.
I enjoyed this book even though it's geared towards young people. Characters were very interesting and the storyline kept my attention. Will read the next book for sure.
I really enjoyed this book. It's not what i thiught it wouls be but it was still really good. I plan on reading the second one when i can.
DelSheree Gladden's "The Ghost Host" is the first tale in a series. I love the concept of the book. I think it could easily be made into a TV series or a movie. Something similar to Buffy The Vampire Slayer series or Firefly. This is more paranormal than romance, but there is a budding relationship in it. Has a YA/NA feel for most of it. I didn't like the execution of the relationships in a few places. I think it will be interesting to see where the series goes from here.
I absolutely loved this story! The cast is an amazing bunch of complex characters, who are very well developed and add to the story. The "secondary characters" really weren't that, because without them the story wouldn't be the same. I loved our main characters, Echo and Malachi, and especially their alternating points of view. I read a lot of paranormal and I felt this was truly unique. I super loved that it's a New Adult, because we are only slowly seeing more sub-genre's in that category. The Ghost Host was un-put-downable and I loved every sleepless second of it. I cannot wait to continue on with the series and to check out more books by DelSheree Gladden! Definitely try this one for yourself, it will absolutely be going down as one of my favorites for the year, and probably one of my all time favorites as well!
