Eve Levine — half-demon, black witch and devoted mother — has been dead for three years. She has a great house, an interesting love life and can’t be killed again — which comes in handy when you’ve made as many enemies as Eve. Yes, the afterlife isn’t too bad — all she needs to do is find a way to communicate with her daughter, Savannah, and she’ll be happy.
But fate — or more exactly, the Fates — have other plans. Eve owes them a favor, and they’ve just called it in. An evil spirit called the Nix has escaped from hell. She feeds on chaos and death, and is very good at persuading people to kill for her. The Fates want Eve to hunt her down before she does any more damage, but the Nix is a dangerous enemy — previous hunters have been driven insane in the process. As if that’s not problem enough, the only way to stop her is with an angel’s sword. And Eve is no angel. .
So when I started reading this series a few years ago I was getting all my books from the library and they did not have this. I was too in love with these books to stop so I SKIPPED it. I never skip, and I did it. Anyways I always wanted to go back but I got lost in so many other books and just never got to it. But I finally did it, and I freaking loved it! This was an amazing story in The Otherworld series and I loved it.
Eve is a ghost. So here world is a lot different then the others we read about. The same rules do not apply. I liked going between worlds and seeing what ghost can do and can't do. I felt so bad for Eve in this book too. She lost her life and her daughter who she fought so hard to protect and she is having a hard time letting go and moving on. Luckily Kristoff is there to help. Even though she tries to push him away a little we all know she isn't really trying. I loved the sexual tension between these two. Loved loved loved it.
So we switch to the bad guys POV in this book. Sometimes I like this sometimes I don't. But I really loved it this time. Nix is freaking crazy. She is serious trouble and you never know what is going to happen when she is in someones body. Its dark, dirty and scary. She's horrific and so are the people she is in.
Haunted is now going down as one of my favorites in the series. Its not like any of the other books in the series and it totally sucked me in. I was a little worried about reading Eve's story. I can't figure out why I was, but whatever because this one totally blew me away. Its just a much darker world then we are used to and you really never know what to expect. One day I am going to read these all over again and I will pretty excited to read this one. Kelley Armstrong always proves to me why I love her so much, she is a bad ass!!
