A group of paranormal specialists and investigators are gathered at a supposedly haunted house. We’ve probably all read this story before. Except this version happens to include the mysterious and amazing Blue Billings, with boyfriend Levi and mentor Tom along for the ride. What results is decidedly more in the haunted and horrifying department than anyone could have expected, much less the viscount who intentionally gathered numerous haunted relics at the scene of an obviously haunted house.
As a sequel, Blue and Levi are already solidly in a romantic relationship. However, no relationship is without work, and both men experience moments of uncertainty regarding their future. Half the point of this book is to reassure them (and the readers) that they are meant to be together. The psychic bits that keep putting their lives in danger are just extra flavoring. But even without the romance element, Morton provides a fascinating haunted house mystery with multiple layers of paranormal intrigue. What evil continues to stalk this house, and even worse, how is very un-psychic Levi involved?
Blue’s attitude toward the entire situation, especially regarding the opportunity to learn more about his past, elevates this story from familiar to engrossing. Morton doesn’t skimp on any description, whether it be the sexy bits or the atmospheric horror. If you enjoyed the first book in the series, you absolutely won’t want to miss the further adventures of Blue Billings, psychic detective, and his wonderful companion, Levi Black.
