Ghost Maker takes things to a whole new level for Claire, Zach, and ghost dog, Enzo as they must defeat an evil ghost while searching for a ghostly healer for the spiritual tear in Claire's side slowly killing her.

Five books in and the series has hit its stride. Readers need to read this urban fantasy series in order from the beginning when Claire reluctantly receives her ghost seeing gift and spirit guide dog Enzo and when Zach thinks his career in law enforcement is over from a severe disabili

With Clare’s health fading, she and her partner—the love of her life—detective Zach Slade, head to Manitou Springs, Colorado, in search of the only healer who can help them: the ghost of Sister Juliana Emmanuel, whose healing skills live on in the afterlife.

Unfortunately for Clare, the nun’s ghost is elusive, and the town is teeming with spirits who all want to speak with Clare—newer ones, street kids who've been killed and want their bodies found and their murders avenged.

Ghost Maker was another interesting installment in Robin D. Owens’ Ghost Seer series. This time around, Clare, Zach and Enzo had to scurry around to find a way to heal Clare’s supernatural wounds and locate a missing street kid before a killer could get to him.

I really like the world Owens has created for this series and it seems like with each installment the characters–as well as the readers–learn something new. There were a lot of little tidbits of information that Zac

Thanks Berkley Publishing Group and netgalley for this ARC.

I'm always amazed at how much Robin Owens packs into one book. Love, abandon, pain, and psychic power schemes all fit together and make sense!

This joint review was originally published at The Book Pushers

E: Marlene and I have jointly reviewed the previous books in this series since Owens falls on our autobuy list so we decided to join opinions once more.

Marlene: Basically, we have a streak going and were all too happy to extend it to another entry in this series!

E: And what an entry this was! The last book was one of the darker installments in this series and really left a lingering mark on Clare, one which was steadily taking a great

Exciting & action packed!

This deserves a 5+ rating- the continued adventures of Clare & Zack- Enzo and the whole gang are absolutely exciting!

I don't want to give away too much - but Clare & Zack both coming to terms with their new vocations & the strength of their love in this very action packed story will keep you hooked!!

Robin just MUST continue this series - there are so many possibilities for at least 4 more books!!!

I think this was the best one so far. It solved a few big things and there was character growth, too. Reasonably happy ending.

Colorado – Present Day

Ghost seer, Clare Cermak, is continuing her new “profession”, reluctantly, but determined to do it well. She was never asked to be a ghost seer, she inherited it from her great aunt, and eventually these abilities will be passed on to Clare’s niece. Clare helps people move on, and right now she must find help from an unknown ghost to heal the spectral wound she received from an evil being while on another mission. Her lover, Zach Slade, and her ghostly Labrador, Enzo, are b

Ghost Maker by Robin D. Owens is the 5th book in her Ghost Seer series. Ghost Maker begins not too long after Ghost Talker left off. Clare still has an injury caused by an evil ghost, and nothing the she or Zach, or even Enzo (their ghost dog spirit) do can fix the injury. While she slowly tries to recover, Clare continues to take on cases to allow people to speak to their loves that have passed on or help ghosts who need to move on to heaven. Zach worries about Clare’s injury, as he can see he ...more

The Ghost Seer series is urban fantasy by my personal classification since it follows the progress of one couple. I've liked the fact the romance has shared focus equally to the mystery. It's always been a quirky read, sort of silly sometimes.

Ghost Maker continued on its silly way and the plot was not too interesting to me. It may have been fewer ancillary characters. Enzo and the Other don't seem to develop much; we don't learn much more about them. Claire and Zach are learning some. It stil

Romance Between The Sheets
Ghost Maker is the continuation of Clare and Zach's story. Clare has settled into her role as someone who can aid the ghosts who have not transitioned yet. Zach is also settling into his role as her love and protector, even when that means protecting her from herself.

This addition of the Ghost Seer Series finds that Clare still has her spectral wound that isn't getting any better so she is having trouble completing her duties. She is slowly dying and Zach will do everything in his power to preve

3.5 stars.

In this installment, Clare and Zach need to find a "good" ghost who can heal Clare's invisible bad-ghost inflicted wound.

I have to admit now that I'm up-to-date with the series, unfortunately this is one of those that I can take it or leave it. I find the ghost cases pretty interesting, but Clare in particular is a bit lacklustre as the heroine. The cover images are false advertising as she's actually into wearing sundresses and cashmere sweaters! I wished Ms Owens had let Clare embrac

Clair and Zack are off on another dangerous assignment. This starts off with Zack looking for a missing street kid and Clair looking for a good ghost to heal her spirt wound. Then the two quests collide and become intertwined. Clair and Zack are still working on accepting the changes in their lives and the new love they feel for each other. This quest adds to the tension between the two as they come to terms with those changes. Part of the problem is how short a time they have been together; jus ...more

Love, love, love this series. It's different enough from all the other series which keeps it fresh. I really like the relationship between Clare and Zach. Throw in Enzo and the picture is complete. In this episode, Clare is still suffering from the "bite" she got in the last story and it's draining her. Zach makes a deal with the Other to help her so it will be interesting to find out what form that's going to take. Clare and Zach head to Manitou Springs to find the good ghost that can heal Clar ...more

It seemed like Clare and Zack were at a cross roads with this book. While both have embraced their relationship, it happened quick and still fragile. I didn't care for how Zack seemed to think sex would fix things. Sure maybe in the short term, but the underlying issues would still be there. I was glad that at the end he started talking about what was freaking him out, better was that Clare did what in response.

I found myself laughing at Clare's continued uncomfortable behavior about Rickman's.

Excellent series

I enjoy the unusual relationship between the two main characters. I also have fallen in love with the spirit guide Enzo. My only complaint is the lack of clues to the "who done it" aspect of the story. I enjoy trying to figure out the mystery along with the characters. A few more clues would make the story more engaging.

Turned out Better Than I Thought.. love Enzo... ALL of THEM

I enjoyed a series with Ghosts and looked at this one. I thought I might enjoy it and I Have. Good Storyline... There is something about each Person that is good, cute, funny... a little sad... but they all blend well together... You will enjoy this book. Hope Clair gets a break...

The series started well but this book needs more to happen to really be a novel instead of fluff and endless "I love you."

One of the best series!!

Her books all link together and in order but each could stand alone, I recommend, however that they be read in sequence.
