I just had an aha moment

Note to self: always read the prequel first! It will do wonders for the understanding...

Okay, it's my own fault. If I had paid more attention, I would have realized instantly that this is a prequel to The Ghost in the Mirror, and not a sequel. Thank goodness, I realized it early enough, so I might get better into the follow-up now.

The Ghost In The Desert is a short about Sergeant Samuel Louis 'Dex' Dexter, stationed with his team of Marines in Afghanistan, and it gives mo

I'm very sad because I know going in this doesn't end well. However, I did enjoy this short prequel, but still sad.

So I read this after I finished The Ghost in the Mirror because I didn't know it existed. I liked it a lot. I felt the chemistry between Sam and Danny.

*3,5 STARS, nothing bad with it, but it's very short, and I don't give higher ratings to short stories.

Nice! Now I need to know what happened with Dex!

A great short prequel story for Samuel and his time in the military. This ends in a cliffhanger.
At age 16 kicked out at home for being gay. Enlisted in the marines 6 yrs ago.  Being lovers on the quite with Danny Cash for past 4 years he stole my heart.
Its was Samuel's aka "ghost" birthday when Cash confesses his love. Now 1 year to go til they where out of the military service. But plans dont work out.

I read this novella after reading The Ghost in the Mirror. Love this story, can't wait to read more from this author.

The Ghost in the Desert: A Samuel Dexter novella by Faith Gibson is the needed prequel to Her full novel The Ghost in the Mirror. Faith gives us information that will help understand Dex more going into Mirror. It is truly a novella, easy quick read that packs a punch. I am glad Faith put it out with support going to a great veteran's cause. Give The Ghost in the Desert a try, especially if you have not read Faith Gibson or want to help a veteran cause. I loved this story; now on to The Ghost in ...more

Teeny, tiny prequel to The Ghost in the Mirror...this gives us the answer as to whether Sam and Danny were lovers before the explosion that rocked and obliterated their world. 3.5 stars.

For such a short book this was really good. It was so good that it spoiled my enjoyment of The Ghost in the Mirror.

Cliffhanger!!!!

This was such a 'real' depiction of military life in a war zone. I immediately ordered 'The Ghost in the Mirror' so I could see what the aftermath of the final scene turned out to be.

This story hooked me from page 1. I'm so excited to dive into The Ghost in the Mirror to find out what happens to Ghost.

This is such a beautifully written story that I've purchased its sequel... The Ghost in the Mirror. I need to know the conclusion. Such pain. Such love. Such loss.
