The bigger they are, the harder they maul.
Immortal not-ghost Wes Cooper and his vampire partner, Hudson Rojas, have it all—rewarding private investigation work, great friends and, most important, a love that’s endured. But ever since Wes sent a demon screaming back to the beyond, his abilities have grown overpowering and overwhelming. He’s hiding the fact that he’s losing control the best he can, but it’s hard to keep anything a secret for long when your partner’s a former cop…and especially when your partner’s a former cop who wants to move in together.
When all hell literally breaks loose in Toronto and superstrength ghosts are unleashed on Wes and his friends, he and Hudson are thrown into a case unlike any they’ve seen before. To save the city, Wes needs to harness his new power…and find some answers. But when he gets them, the solution to fix it all could mean losing everything.
Give Up the Ghost is a nice addition to this series. Like the previous book, it has a slow plot, filled with intrigue, mystery, and lot of sassy characters, The dry humor and sarcasm are strong is this story as well as all the characterizations. Every small detail is important for the final resolution.
It’s interesting to see what has happened since Wes and Hudson rekindled their relationship and how the previous events shaped the twists and turns this time around. There’s a lot of information to digest. From settings, foods, clothes, and everything that makes this book unique.
I enjoyed seeing Evan, Lexi, and Iskandar. again, and how they were part of this book too. Even Michael was a refreshing sight with an unexpected role. I wanted a little less reflection and a faster pace. Even when the story was entertaining and compelling.
The cover matches the previous book and it’s interesting enough to get the readers’ eye. Still, the characters seem pretty young.
