The Medium Path by Elizabeth Davies was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by the author.

It is Ruby Anderson’s birthday. Well, it would be if she were still alive, and she would be one hundred and three years old. But she’s not alive, she hasn’t been for eighty five years. But she didn’t go into the light either, when she died. Ruby is a spirit guide. She was able to see ghosts when she was alive and was deemed mentally ill. Upon death, she was kept on earth to help guide

Ms Davies, thank you for an amazing read. It was gripping, poignant and beautifully written.

The Medium Path is a captivating ghost story which tells the story of Ruby, a spirit guide, who enlists the aid of other spirits as well as mediums to help her find out why spirits are being taken by darkness.

Ruby is determined and intelligent, and makes up for her lack of body with her wit and ingenuity. Michael, a reluctant medium, helps Ruby in her quest while struggling to balance his spiritual side

What can I say about this wonderful book without giving the plot away!
Ruby is a spirit guide & I immediately fell in love with her, an old soul in a young body. A medium when alive, she had a sadly short & sad life. As she was a medium, on her death she became a spirit guide. Her job to help the newly dead souls to pass on their life force to a living soul & then to pass into the light. Things are going as they should,until a darkness starts claiming the souls before they can pass to the light.

An arc of this book was provided by the author.

Another great read from the author. I loved The Spirit Guide, so it was nice to see another book written. Thank god George was mentioned as he was a favourite character of mine. It was a completely different ending than the first book, and although I liked it, I still like the first one better!
Ghosts, are they real? Can only gifted mediums see them, or perhaps the young who haven’t learned not to believe in anything “supernatural?” Ruby died long ago, but she often saw spirits or ghosts when alive. Now she travels the earth guiding lingering spirits to their final journey into the light. But why would a ghost linger on this plane, unable to communicate or be seen? Unfinished business? Love? Fear? Not all spirits are going into the light, Ruby has discovered that some are being forced ...more

This is not just your ordinary paranormal story. The plot was something I've never read in any paranormal story before. It was also well written and intriguing. I was hooked from the very first page until the last one.

I love the idea of spirit guides, life forces and the different kinds of spirits: guardians, ghosts and poltergeists. The spirits have their own interesting stories about their lives when they were still alive and the manner how they died. My favorite character aside from Ruby was

In THE MEDIUM PATH, Ruby was a medium who, after her death, became a guide for ghosts who need help passing on. In the course of her ‘work’, Ruby discovers there are ghosts who are disappearing in a flash of darkness, rather than the normal white light. The author created a rich and lush world in which the existence of ghosts is utterly believable. The characters are well-developed and bursting with life, even the ghosts. THE MEDIUM PATH is a skillful combination of mystery, romance, and the par ...more

The story was pretty original and well written. Right from the start I was hooked and had to keep going to find out what would happen. I felt for Ruby, especially towards the end. The end would have turned out very different if she had only made some different choices through the book, but I'm glad it played out the way it did.

I thought the premise of this was amazing. It was like a ghost version of the ghost whisperer. All is going great until darkness starts taking her charges.

I fell in love with Ruby immediately and love how the author created her world. Even though Ruby was and old soul in a young body this reader identified with her and could understand how she had kept up with modern parlance and fashion. Oh how I would love to be able to shimmer to any location I wanted and to wear whatever I wanted just by thi
Let me begin by saying that the blurb for this book does not do it justice – at all. Going into this book, I thought it was going to be a typical ghost love story. You know the one – pretty ghost falls head over heels for a handsome young gentleman and they find a way to make it work and they were blissfully happy. This was so not the case with The Medium Path. Yes, there is a love story, but it also has so much more. There is also a mystery that begs to be solved and with this premise the reade ...more

Ruby Anderson is seventeen years old. Okay, well technically she is 103 years old, but dying at seventeen will see her forever at this age.

Her ‘role’ in the afterlife is that of Spirit Guide – she helps recently deceased people cross in to the light. That is until those waiting to cross are sucked in to a darkness instead.

With the help of her friends both dead and alive, Ruby sets out to find what or whom is taking the sp
     3.5 stars. Okay I really enjoyed a lot about this story. I found the idea of a medium who had passed over and become a spirit guide, someone who guides the recently deceased to where they are supposed to go, very intriguing. Funny enough I have totally been cracking out to the show Medium on Netflix recently, so this book couldn't have come along at a better time.

Uniquely different romance with a forever HEA...I liked it though, I really liked it.

Ruby is a ghost, well, not just a ghost…actually, she’s a spirit guide, but she is indeed dead. She died nearly one hundred years ago after being mistreated and abused as a mental patient in an institution for the insane. She wasn’t insane. She simply could see and talk to ghosts. She was a medium. After dying, she didn’t go into the light as most spirits do but instead, became a member of a group of spirits wh

Ghosts are something people can’t seem to agree upon. Many (myself included) don’t doubt their existence for one second, while many are skeptical. I’ve always been interested in ghosts, and the psychic realm…probably because I’m a bit psychic myself (my husband who can never surprise me will attest to this), and when Elizabeth Davies asked if I’d like a free copy of her book The Medium Path in exchange for a review, I quickly accepted.

Ruby is a spirit guide that attends to the dead in order to help them to cross over to the other side. She died at the age of 18 and her body appears to the dead in that form. Now, all people have to cross over but some people refuse to do so and they remain on earth as ghosts.

Upon one of her “missions”, she comes across an elderly woman who is dying and meets, Michael, a medium, that can actually see Ruby, and in

Ruby is a spirit guide. Since she’s seen ghosts or spirits all of her life, (before she died herself) it should really be no surprise that she now has the duty and honor of showing them the way into eternity. But there is trouble on the other side. There is so

I cannot say enough about Elizabeth Davies’s amazing ability to create and tell a story that allows one’s imagination to take hold; allowing us to see, feel, even smell what she describes. I have enjoyed each of her books and can now say that I do not have a favorite only another author to add to my favorite list.

I can honestly say I have never read a book quite like this. It is very unique. It isn't the normal ghost, spirit, I see dead people type of book. It tells a story. It tells her story. Ruby, who is a spirit guide. She helps the ones who need help to cross over. She helps many in the book. Some of the stories were sad, others a bit on the funny side.

I’m not a big paranormal romance reader. For some reason, I just have a harder time getting into the stories. I have a hard time identifying with romances with non-human characters. I do like variety in my reading, though, so when the author asked if I would be willing to read and review The Medium Path, I said yes.

I’m really glad I did. The story grabbed me from the beginning. It was a really different ghost story. The concept of the spirit guide intrigued me. I liked how the spirit world was s

Ruby is a spirit guide, she is there to help souls cross over. Then one day, instead of a soul going into the light it’s absorbed by a dark shadow. Ruby and her fellow spirit guides, ghosts, and mediums vow to find out what’s going on. Only Isobel, one of the oldest spirit guides has seen this before, centuries ago. But it could be the same. Cou

I loved this book and couldn't put it down. The author, Elizabeth Davies, is now a must follow author for me. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. The book was imaginative and amazing. It took me to a place in the paranormal genre that no other author has managed. It's a must read for fiction lovers.

I loved this book. Ms. Davies has given us a story rich in plot, character, and atmosphere. The characters of Ruby, Michael, and supporting cast were intriguing and well developed. The plot had twists and turns I didn't anticipate. The setting wove "normal" people, mediums, and spirits together in a rich tapestry. I have no hesitation in recommending this book.

Amazing story involving the spirit world. Descriptions are so beautifully wrote that you feel part of the story. The characters draw you in as much as the story itself.
