Before reading:

The MacKinnon Curse is one of my all-time favorite series.
When I heard there will be a spin-off I was just so... I can't even put my feelings into the words.
(happy, excited, beyond thrilled, in the mood for dancing) x3 !

I really, really wish more people would know about this author and her work. I have read 5 of her books and loved every-single one of them!

After reading:

This one was no exception. I really, really liked it!

This story takes place five years after The Departed.

The Uninvited by J.A. Templeton

Four and a half stars

(I was given an ARC for The Uninvited. It has not swayed my review!)

I've read her MacKinnon Curse series when it first came out and absolutely loved it! I remember waiting and waiting for the second and then the third book to release.

This was no different.

I've always been curious about Maddy and her past. While we see a bit of it from the MacKinnon Curse series, its nice to be in her mind and experience it all along with her. Maddy is one

I was given an advance copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I loved the MacKinnon Curse series and had been anxiously awaiting the start of this new related series. My only complaint is that it wasn't long enough. I was so into the story that I WAS NOT ready for it to end. It was extremely entertaining and I was hooked from the beginning. This is the type of novel I love. It has everything I enjoy: paranormal, romance, mystery and suspense. I'm not one to put spoil ...more

The Uninvited by J.A. Templeton is a thrilling opening to the new series The MacKinnon Legacy, a spin-off of the unforgettable, gripping and powerful Mackinnon Curse series. The Uninvited followed Maddy as she ventures away from the Braemar Castle and away from her best friend, a ghost named Hanway. There is more paranormal goodness in The Uninvited with groundbreaking characters and a mystery that only deepens as you delve further into the story.

I loved the pace of the story and the mystery tha

A interesting read.

I liked the main character. Although she seemed timid with her gift that didn't stop her from knowing she could help. A good read and entertaining.

*I received this copy in exchange for a review.

In this spin off series of The MacKinnon Curse, this story is coming from Madison Sinclair (Kade and Cait's cousin) who has psychic abilities like Riley. It takes place when Maddy is attending University where Shane and Richie are learning as well. When a ghostly girl named Jamie asks for Maddy's help to find where her body is when she was kidnapped on her way to school, she leans on Shane for advice since he is familiar with ghosts and her abilitie
Having read and loved the MacKinnon Curse series, I couldn't wait to finally read "The Uninvited" by J.A. Templeton, the start of a spin-off series.

In "The Uninvited, Maddy, a young girl with a troubled past, starts university in Edinburgh. On her first night she's visited by the ghost of a dead girl, Jamie. This in itself wouldn't be a big deal. She's been seeing ghosts and communicating with them since a young age.
But what makes this different is that the girl had been murdered, her killer s

I really liked the book. It did lack a certain something that others had but I couldn't put my finger on it.

It was a suspenseful book that had me on edge trying to put together the pieces of the puzzle.

I was questioning everyone and their motives and even AFTER something was revealed I questioned that too.

It held the creepy scary edge hat a ghost story should have and keep me interested in the story.

The end had me in sweats. I will be reading book two because I have to know what happens.

I need book two now!!! Wow, the author is simply amazing! The chills and gut wrenching emotions I felt throughout the book is what I hate and love. I tend to read at night but sometimes have to stop because I get creeped out and feeling what Maddy feels gives me chills. The characters seem so real and I just love them except for the creepy ones. Lol.
I recommend you read the MacKinnon curse books because they are just AMAZING! I'm just glad there will be more books with the MacKinnon Legacy.

So yesterday everyone was all 'Happy Easter!", and I was all book hungover from binge reading The Uninvited the night before. I had so many questions, and still have questions, I NEED answers to. I need book 2 ASAP. My best friend also has the book and if she doesn't read it soon, I'm going to sit beside her until she finishes it, so we can talk about everything that happened in the book. I need to talk about it. I need to talk about Maddy and what's coming next. ...more
