"Queen of the Dead" by Stacey Kade (Ghost & the Goth #2)
Synopsis: Alona and Will thought they had everything figured out, for the most part. She was his spirit guide- like a secretary to the dead- and in the process helped him look saner to the outside world. And of course, she was his sort-of girlfriend. In return, Will was going to eventually help her transition into the afterlife. Things were great... until Will takes a job for a crazed ghosts and meets a girl who has the same ability as he does. The more Will gets involved with Mina, the other ghost-talker, the more Alona's sure that something is wrong. Is she just playing the jealous girlfriend? Or is there really something that Minia and her group is hiding? Regardless, the new ghost-talkers are certainly drawing a wedge between Alona and Will.
My Thoughts: Just like with it's predecessor, Queen of the Dead is a great, light, romantic comedy. I read this book within 24 hours and loved it. The plot gets thicker as Alona and Will's lives become more and more difficult and a whole new set of characters are introduced, while revitalizing some old ones... It's a great read if you're looking for something quick and fun.
My Rating: 4/5 Ghost-Talkers
GoodReads Rating: 3.96 Stars
-Will Killian is a surprisingly good kisser. I mean you'd never know it by looking at him. He's perpetually pale with scruffy black hair, a seriously questionable wardrobe, and an attitude that makes Eeyore look like a ray of sunshine.
-I know: creepy, right? The elderly have invaded Facebook. That is just wrong in so many ways.
