Ivy Granger, psychic detective, thought she'd seen it all...until now.

With a vengeful lamia that only she can see on the city streets, reports of specters walking Harborsmouth cemeteries, and an angry mob of faerie clients at her office door, it's bound to be a long night. Add in an offense against the faerie courts and a few foolish bargains and one thing is clear—Ivy Gra

Don’t you love it when you find a main character in a book that literally ‘makes’ the whole series for you? I found that In Ivy Granger, psychic detective and fairy princess. She is smart, brave, and strong willed, with a side of snark a mile long. I guess when you live in a city that is a natural habitat for the supernatural, you have to be all those things. Turns out that Harborsmouth sits where several ley lines intersect. Ley lines evidently attract the supernatural, so that explains why the ...more

*My Thoughts*

Ghost Light is the second installment in the Ivy Granger series by E.J. Stevens, who graciously offered me this book in lieu of an honest review. Easy Peasy. Private Investigator, Psychic, half fae Ivy Granger is back four months after the end of Shadow Sight. Her life is a bit more interesting th
Bob Milne
With Ghost Light, Stevens doesn't really offer anything new, but she does develop the themes and characters of the first book. We get to see more of her world, and more of the magical creatures that inhabit it, which is probably my favorite aspect of the series. There's a real depth to the mythology here, with faeries, vampires, and mermaids falling into their own roles in society. It's not just a bunch of monsters dropped into the 'real' world, but a subtly different world where race extends be ...more

It's always so hard to write my reviews for this series because the books are just SO. GOOD. WHY MUST YOU MAKE IT SO HARD, E.J.??? She's probably cackling away in her writing lair right now, soaking in my tears. But no matter. I'll find a way! *plays Eye of the Tiger*

Ghost Light is the third instalment for Ivy Granger if you haven't read the first Ivy Granger book "Shadow Sight" then it will help, as Shadow Sight really fills the characters in for you, introduces the town of Harborsmouth to you, where the residents are not always what they appear to be, there is a large Fae population, not that you would know they are able to glamour themselves, to the human eye they look perfectly, human, Ivy's gift psychometry allows her to see the reality (and the unicorn ...more
I loved Shadow Sight the first instalment in E.J. Steven's Ivy Granger series, I remember getting good book vibes right from the very first chapter so I was really looking forward to diving back into Ivy's world in Ghost Light. Even with a fantastic first book there's always a little part of me wondering if the second book will meet my lofty expectations but I needn't have worried as Ghost Light was another 5 star read.

In the second full length book in this series, Ivy is back. Of course the myriad of threats still seem to come out of left field, and Ivy has a whole new set of conflicts to deal with. Further development of Jinx, her best friend and business partner, more about her love interest Ceffyl and his newly introduced ex-wife, and Ivy’s continued “no touch” status added to the enjoyment of the story.

I received an e-book from the author in exchange for an honest review

I find myself enjoying the Ivy Granger series more and more with each passing installment. Granted, we're only in book 2, but with the novella, Blood and Mistletoe, which takes place between books 1 and 2 we're up to three stories so far. Each installment not only takes us deeper into the supernatural world of Harborsmouth, but main character Ivy experiences quite a lot of growth.

Speaking of Ivy's growth, she kicked serious ass
Melissa Hayden
On top of Ivy being stressed over her boyfriends crazy wife haunting her, she's got fey parents lined up at her door waiting for her help in finding their children. And there are rumors of ghost sightings by the humans as well (not good). While she's out investigating the missing children, Ivy has to be careful not to let her wisp side show by glowing in front of humans. She could find herself in serious trouble with the fey world if she does. What would help is if she could find her father and ...more
[re-read 30th May, 2015. Originally read 13th September, 2013]

This book was painful to (re-)read and I give it 1 star of utter frustrated disappointment. This installment suffers from all the problems the first one did as well as a plethora of new ones that seem to mainly boil down to exceedingly sloppy storytelling.

My first issue with this novel is that the plot, if you could give it such a grand name, made absolutely no sense. Not even in a "well, it was so full of non-stop action that it seem

Review Posted on Reading Lark 7/8/13:

E.J. Stevens has always written stories that suck me into them, but she truly has outdone herself with the Ivy Granger Series. It's deliciously addicting reading and the moment I finish one installment, I start to salivate waiting for the next. Stevens is one of those writers I wish could write faster. Sadly, I almost want her to put her YA series (which I love) on hold to focus on Ivy. Harborsmouth and its inhabitants
Jennifer at BookShelfery
I was really excited to get the ARC for Ghost Light. E.J. Stevens is quickly becoming an Indie favorite of mine, with her two other books in the Ivy Granger series, Shadow Sight and Blood & Mistletoe. Ghost Light didn’t disappoint!

Stevens plunges us back into the world of private detective Ivy Granger, who now knows she is a halfie-fae Wisp princess, although that’s a secret to the rest of the fae community. Or so she thinks. Things are hunky dory with Ceff. Again, or so she thinks. And then
This is the highly anticipated 2nd book in the Ivy Granger series, and I’ve got to tell you that I enjoyed it even more than the first. Additionally, this book can be read just fine as a stand-alone which in my estimation is always a big plus. Even better, the story is complete within the book; E.J. is to be commended because this book has a satisfying resolution. I particularly appreciate not having to contend with the frustration of a new major event erupting at the end that leaves readers in ...more

I'm so in love with this series! Let me just say, that I AND Ivy got my wish in this book but I won't tell you what it is, because you NEED to read this series yourself. All news twists, and fanatical crazy ex after Ivy, children going missing, exposing your new self to the Fae world, all the while getting to be with that HAWT piece of a Kelpie King. Seriously, you are missing out if you haven't read this series!

Ivy is changing. She never wanted to touch ANYTHING because of her gift/curse. Now,

I received Ghost Light in return for an honest review from the author. Ivy is back with a new case this time faerie children have been going missing during the night with no trace. Ivy sets out to find who is taking the children revealing an unexpected enemy has come to Harborsmouth intent on taking what Ivy has. Ivy’s boyfriend Ceff’s ex-wife happens to make a few appearances at first Ivy think’s it’s her mind playing tricks but when she finds a scale and experiences the memories attached to it ...more

The town of Harborsmouth is a hotbed of all things supernatural. When the supernatural community is in need of a little detective help, there is one place to turn – Ivy Granger Physic Detective – owner of Private Eye. By touching an object, Ivy gets visions of the item’s owner, not always a good talent to have. To keep herself from be swamped, Ivy covers herself from head to foot and avoids all contact, again not so good when your beau is the hunky king of the local kelpie – Ceffyl Dwr, Ceff to ...more

Please note - this review is on the ARC for Ghost Light and was provided in return for a free copy of said ARC. However, this is an honest review and reflects only the opinions of myself, Jason Crawford.

My overall rating for this book is 4.8/5.

Here is my breakdown, as usual:

Characters: 5/5. The development of the characters of Ivy, Ceff, Jinx, and the rest are logical, reasonable, and entertaining. It is thrilling to watch Ivy struggle through the implications of her true nature, her self-im
Krystal Willingham
I really enjoyed the first book in this series (Shadow Sight) that I had to keep going and find out what was going to happen with Ivy. Well, I have to say that I was not disappointed and I am happy to see that everything is as thrilling as the first book. E.J. Stevens' writing grabs a hold of me and keeps me engaged with every word written. The characters are thoroughly thought out, mysterious and thrilling all in a single beat. I have loved the relationship between Ivy and Ceff since the beginn ...more
If you could sum up Ghost Light in three words, what would they be?
Fast Paced Read.

What about Traci Odom’s performance did you like?
Traci Odom did a great job with this. She really has the snark down and is a great Ivy Granger.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There are a few moments that made me laugh because of Ivys' wit.

Any additional comments?
Ghost Light is the second book and for me, was the best yet. I loved Ivy in this one and the plot was fast pa
This series is really getting super great! I love all the different types of Faeries! It's fun to go into all the Faerie types, and not just the typical faeries. I read this in no time; the story was fast paced and interesting, and kept me intrigued. Ivy is an awesome heroine, and her strength really shines through. All of the characters are interesting, and they were so entertaining! I look forward to the next books in the series, and I'm excited to see where Ivy's adventures take her!

Ivy Granger kicked butt again in this action-packed, adventure-filled story. I am eagerly awaiting the next book, Club Nexus.
I love the friendship between Ivy and Jinx. You just know they will have each other's backs forever. It's admirable to read about and makes me grateful for my own best friend at the same time.
If you haven't read the previous book, and the novella, Blood and Mistletoe (1.5), do so. Paranormal fans will love this series most!
In Ghost Light the story about Ivy Granger and company tells an exciting fantasy detective story once again. The difference with the first part, and the short story, is mainly that the story continues after she has solved the case. Therefore making a head start toward more stories about this wonderfull city.
I really like the Ivy Granger series, there are multiple paranormal groups and I like strong women characters. I do think that for someone who feels guilty about killing someone who was trying their hardest to kill her she is sometimes a little quick at threatening violence. I am looking forward to the next one and to the new series with Jenna in it.

If you like this series you should like the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire.
Really great second book! It didn't have the terrible book 2 in a series curse, which I was very thankful for. The plot was ingenious and really pulled on your heartstrings. Good thinking E.J.!! However, I do wish that ending was a little more powerful. Regardless it was a great read and I am still a huge fan of the series. Paranormal fans if you haven't picked up this series yet, what is wrong with you?
I've loved the first book and the intervening novella and this novel didn't disappoint. I love the development of all of the characters, and I'm so intrigued by the concept of a half wisp. It's a faerie 'type' that I've personally never seen and I'm highly enjoying the development.

Every mention of her unicorn friend sends pangs of longing through my heart.
Liked the first book, liked the second even more.. Looking forward to the third..
Great read I love the Ivy Granger series! ...more
