Book review - Living with Ghosts by Kari Sperring

Living With GhostsLiving With Ghosts by Kari Sperring

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this book second, though it is Sperring's first, and it knocked my socks off. It has some wonderful characters, of whom I grew very fond, and was hugely dismayed when some of them didn't make it (no spoilers). The bad guys were well drawn too and really horrible!

The eerie atmosphere builds steadily, and things become very dark, so one cannot imagine how the situation will be happily resolved.

I am very much looking forward to reading more by this author. I think I will be re-reading this book, as well as 'The Grass King's Concubine', which is a stand-alone book set in the same 'verse.

  1. I've had Kari Sperring's books on my 'to buy' list for a while - now I'll move them to the no 1 spot!! Hope all is well with you, hun!

    love Mags B x

  2. Not too bad, Maggie - thank you! I never seem to have enough time for all the stuff I want to do.

    I really enjoyed Kari's books very much. I loved 'Living with Ghosts' and had to wait several days before reading anything else. I also enjoyed 'Bitterblue' by (author memory-hole).

    I hope you're well - I've just fallen back into Facebook (plop) after being on holiday in Normandy. I'm currently doing Nanowrimo. Are you having a bash, or writing at a more leisurely pace?
