I think this is a unusual story. The depiction of the ghosts are scary as they can do things most ghosts can't. The the main character has narcolepsy is also unusual & interesting how it affects her. I enjoyed it. #AGlimmerofGhosts #NetGalley ...more

The shadowy dreamlike world of narcolepsy is a subject in this stunning story full of adventure and deception. The first page hooked me with its snappy dialogue and the well-drawn characters. The author has a creative and playful way with language. Lots of in-depth research went into both the contemporary setting and the historic ghostly encounters. The imagery in the scenes carried me through like a dream, which I believe was intentional. Edwardia intrigued me with her beauty and her transforma ...more

I'm a sucker for any "ghost hunters" reality shows, though most of them are fake, so A Glimmer of Ghost's plot instantly intrigued me from the get-go, which revolves around a ghost hunting team called the Ghost Towne Investigations, though the story centers around Melisande Blythe, a member of the team who has narcolepsy.

I'm always skeptical when I read a new author but all my worries went away by the end of the first chapter. The first paragraph pulled me right into the story, and with two cups

A Glimmer of Ghosts is an enthralling, whimsical, and unusual story of the paranormal. I was blown away by the way the writing is able to bring in real world aspects to make you feel like you’re really there. There are parts that really cling to you and you feel what Mel (the main character) feels. Enough with praising the writing style, the way the love and romance is portrayed is enchanting and captivating, and the story is very interesting and keeps you at the edge o
