Whilst a much quicker read than the first book, Melancholy Spirit seems to hit a much harder punch than the first book. I’m not quite sure what specific aspect of the story is to blame for this, but I’m going to go ahead and explain all the wonderful aspects that I feel contributed to this being the case.
First, I’ll start with the new ghost lore. In Melancholy Spirit we’re in ...more

This book has a more mellow tone, Melancholy Ghost being the perfect name for it.
Melancholy isn’t as action packed as book #1, but it has interesting experiences and gives different insights about ghosts. There were neat concepts from ghosts shattering souls to an entire ghost ...more

It's very superstitions writing! I’m not just talking about Steve Wonder, I’m literally talking about the vary superstitions writing of The Spirit Chasers and The Melancholy Ghost by Kat Mayor. You guys already know that Kat Mayor is not a new author here on LBO, I’ve talked about her for a year. Ever since she gave me the chance to meet “Control” Austin and the curvy red-head psychic Casey, I h...more
This series is very different. I loved the first book . The second book holds up very well as a sequel. This might sound odd but I loved the idea of some spirits (view spoiler)[be so broken that they would 'shatter'. (hide spoiler)] It's a bit of a sad and depressing idea but also a fantastic, logical and creative addition to the lore.
In this book we are ...more
Spirit Chasers are still going strong, even after all the tragedies of the last season. The friends are working hard to protect Austin, while also trying to raise the show's flagging ratings. It seems the hits keep coming.
This is a great series. While this book wasn't quite as good as the first, it still kept me riveted to the pages from beginning to end.
I was hesitant to read this because there was no way it could be even half as good as the first book; but it was even better! I couldn't put down my tablet until it was over and I miss Casey already! I need to see what happens next! Now I have to see what other amazing works this author has!
This is a great second installment in the series, but the ending was cliff hanging. This is the kind of roller coaster plot; there are mixed feelings and we cant help to push for the underdog.
Love the first Spirit Chaser book and it was the same type of hopefulness filled with despair.
Can't wait for the next.
In this book, Austin is back. He is not aware that he is dead and his thinking process is scrambled and no memory of being dead or how he got there. Prudence a ghost from the first book is back as well. She is the one who found Austin and b ...more
Wasn't sure after the end of the first book where the story could go, but I was surprised to read there was a twist at the end of the 2nd book, I really enjoyed the second installment, I love the cover of this book a lovely visual nod to Mildred, can Casey & Austin have there happy ever after? Can love really flourish from beyond the grave? Who knows? Eagerly waiting for the third installment to see if they all get there happy endings or will the story meander down other roads. ...more
