When researchers discovered Ardagh 1, it was everything they were hoping for – Earth-like with abundant flora and fauna. However, there is a strange phenomenon. The alien life on this planet takes the form of a deceased person known to their ‘host’. The host and the ‘ghost’ are inexorably linked together and to deal with the psychological ramifications, psychologist Dr. Murphy created the “Ghost Protocol”. The “Ghost Protocol” is a mandate which allows for no interaction between the host and their ghostly counterpart. Yet when psychologist Elizabeth Cole lands on Ardagh 1, it doesn’t become apparent at first she’s Dr. Murphy’s new ghost. Now Elizabeth is forced to work outside the box and against her oppressors to figure out the secrets of Ardagh 1 and the meaning to her existence before a war tears the planet apart.

Ms. Fisher’s ‘Ghost Planet’ is one of the best science-fiction romance novels I’ve read in quite a while. I absolutely loved the characters of Elizabeth and Murphy. Their interactions were natural and didn’t seem stilted or forced. This book strives to emphasize the importance of symbiosis and cohesion while pointing out how cutting ourselves off from the world and from others does nothing but harm. I felt the author had well-developed characters, a great plot, and intriguing scientific and psychological twists. ‘Ghost Planet’ will keep your interest engaged and you will not want to put this book down until the last word!
