The second in the Spirit Guide series, Spirit Storm just stole my heart with the storyline. I enjoyed this one better than She Smells the Dead because the plot in this one was fantastic and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Spirit Storm picks up right where the 1st book left off and starts off with a bang in the beginning, Yuki is about to steal something from

I enjoyed this second book in E.J.'s series. I just really enjoy the characters...everyone has such a different personality. I could read about these characters for a long time and hopefully E.J. keeps writing about them as they grow together with all their gifts. I also enjoyed all the explanations about Samhain and the traditions. I really did not know a whole lot behind Halloween and what it I do. I'd like to see one of the characters have a happy names to spoil thoug ...more

Spirit Storm is the second instalment in the Spirit Guide book series by E. J. Stevens. This Young Adult Paranormal series follows the adventures of protagonist Yuki and friends as they attempt to cope with a lot of supernatural happenings.

Spirit Storm, alike to it's predecessor She Smells the Dead, is told from the first person perspective of Yuki. Yuki is a strong protagonist whom is both entertaining and believable. She has a gift and it's not necessarily one she loves; she can smell the dead

Yuki is special: she can smell the dead. She is also running out of time. Samhain is fast approaching – as is the storm of spirits it will bring with it. Yuki needs to find a way to get through the night. Preferably with her sanity. To make everything worse, a murderer is out there – a murderer who seems to be targeting werewolves. And then, just when Yuki is starting to think that her life cannot get any better, a disaster strikes. And still, time is running out. On the bright

My Thoughts: In this second book in the Spirit Guide series, after She Smells the Dead, Yuki works to prepare herself for the spirit storm that will accompany Samhain. To complicate matters, someone appears to be hunting werewolves.

One of the things I like about this series is it is fairly realistic (within certain definitions of
Yuki is back in the eagerly awaited Spirit Guide series. With great friends surrounding and supporting her, Yuki still has to deal with snide putdowns from some snooty highschool classmates, but she manages stay true to her own unique self even under duress. I enjoyed her attire choices in the first book and once again found myself grinning and mentally picturing her get-ups in this book. Her clothing accessories, while odd, make perfect sense, once she explains.

This is another “feel-good” read

It looks like my newfound love of paranormal romance will continue, and I can pretty much blame it on one of my new favorite authors, E.J. Stevens.

A couple months ago, when I read She Smells the Dead, the first book in her series, I wrote that the innocent and almost ideal aspects of the relationships between the characters appealed to me the most. It reminded me of my own youth – actually, reminded me how lacking in sincerity my own youth was – and left me grinning by the en

In the world of the paranormal, the imagination reigns supreme. Populated by mysterious supernatural beings, and mortals possessing extraordinary powers, Spirit Storm by E.J. Stevens, is an enchanting tale that transports the reader to an intriguing realm of spirits, werewolves and murder. This is the second installment of her fascinating Spirit Guide Series.

Yuki is a High School Senior with a unique psychic awareness. SHE SMELLS THE DEAD. Actually, they come in the form of “smell impressions”

Spirit Storm is the second book in E.J. Stevens’ Spirit Guide Series and it just keeps getting better. Yuki, Cal, Emma and Simon are back with their weird mixture of gifts and problems. When the book opens it’s October 30 in Salem Massachusetts and Yuki is getting ready to break into an occult shop run by witches. We go back to October 20th in Maine to find out how this strange event has come about. Yuki and Cal are in the parking lot of school when Cal receives a picture on his cell phone from ...more

Well E.J. Stevens has done it again! Written a book which instantly hooks the reader and reels them in. Again, Yuki is a really intriguing character, Cal is swoon-worthy, and the tempo of the book is very fast paced, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat the entire time. What is even better about this book than its predecessor is that the secondary characters, Emma and Simon, make such a profound impact upon us. Their bantering back and forth was so entertaining and truly the cherry on to ...more
Yuki and friends are back in this second installment of the Spirit Guide series. With the spirit storm approaching, Yuki and her friends have their hands full, but when a member of Calvin's pack is murdered and another disappears, Yuki and the gang have no choice, but to investigate. Hoping at the same time they can prepare Yuki for the upcoming onslaught of spirits.

I love this series. This is the second book in the Spirit Guide series and it looks like there are more to come. (I can't wait!

I read She Smells the Dead and Spirit Storm together. My review is my thoughts after reading both books. This is the same review that I put for She Smells the Dead.

Being a teenager can suck. Being a teenager with paranormal gifts can really suck. Yuki is a Senior in high school who has an uncanny sense of smell. She smells the dead. That’s right she senses ghosts through scent. That alone makes this series interesting.

In these first two books Yuki is learning about her spirit gifts. Her best fr

This is the second book in E.J. Stevens' Spirit Guide series and it's even better than She Smells The Dead. Yuki is such a great character. She's not your typical Goth girl. She smells the imprints of the dead. And she's in love with a werewolf who is also her best friend. Oh and he's the Alpha of the pack. And she's got an outspoken militant vegan female best friend, Emma.

And she's got the best assortment of boots I've ever read about in the history of YA. Oh, and she loves Cal Miller. She says

Yuki isn't a typical high school student living in Maine. She senses and smells the spirits of the dead. She is worried that on Samhain, the night of Halloween, the dead will be free to roam and she isn't sure how she'll deal with it.

Calvin Miller, Yuki's boyfriend, is the Alpha, the leader of a pack of werewolves. He and his subordinate, Simon, are attempting to find who recently killed a werewolf. They want to prevent further killing.

I'm loving this series!
Spirit Storm is an exciting mixture of the threat of a werewolf murderer on the loose (which the gang need to track down before he can harm anyone else), and the approaching danger of Samhain- where the veil between the spirit world is at it's thinnest and therefore Yuki is most in danger of being completely overwhelmed. Her endurance is tested at the funeral of the murdered werewolf boy, where just being in a graveyard Yuki is bombarded with smell impressions, images, and

I received this e-book from the author for review

E.J. Stevens' Spirit Storm was a good followup to She Smells the Dead. Samhain is drawing closer and Yuki is getting a little nervous, Samhain is when the dead walk the earth meaning more spirits will be visiting her. She wants to find a way to protect herself from the onslaught of spirits, but that's going to involve research.

That's not all though! There's also a werewolf killer on the loose and Yuki is worried for Cal since he is a werewolf, and

I have to say I'm really enjoying this series. In book two Yuki is still this super adorable goth girl except now she has become more in tune with her abilities to smell the dead. With Samhain fastly approaching she is going to have to find a way to protect herself. Calvin and Yuki are still together in this one and are adjusting well together. Calvin is now the Alpha of his pack and trying hard to make some great changes within the pack. I loved his way of taking charge of the pack he seemed mo ...more

Spirit Storm is the second novel in the Spirit Guide series. All of the wonderfully quirky characters from She Smells the Dead return: Yuki, Calvin, Emma, and Simon. The first novel ended with a cliffhanger, so the reader already had an idea of what Yuki and her friends would be facing next.

Yuki receives smell impressions from the dead. There is just something about her that attracts the spirits to her and the smell impression of any given spirit will not go away until she helps it find peace s

Spirit Storm picks up right where She Smells the Dead left off. Yuki is trying hard to figure out a way to save herself on Samhain when the spirits will be flooding in. While trying to figure out how to deal with that, Cal finds out there is a killer wolf on the loose and its killing other wolfs. The book is fast paced and there really is never a dull moment. Cal is really filling in his alpha roll and I can not wait to see how much he grows into that. Already he is amazing.

The SPIRIT STORM picks right up after SHE SMELLS THE DEAD ends. I'm so glad I got both books at the same time so I didn't have to wait to read what happened after all the lead up to the event. There is lots of mystery, suspense and action. Yuki has a lot on her plate, she has to worry about Samhain, help her injured boyfriend, look for clues to who is murdering members of Calvin's pack.

The perfect book to read on Halloween for a bit of ghostly action with a lot of fun thrown in! With Samhain and the thinning of the veil between worlds coming rapidly closer, Yuki's ghost-smelling talent and the fact that she seems to attract the souls of the dead is putting her under more and more of a strain. Meanwhile, a member of Cal's wolfpack turns up brutally killed and another goes missing. Catching a killer and finding some form of spiritual protection strong enough to get Yuki through ...more
