There are two mysteries in this story – to find and kill the maker of Ghost, a drug that takes people into the Ghostlands, leaving their bodies open and vulnerable to possession; and to find and kill the leader of the dark priests who are kidnapping and killing people in Oakland. But the clunky sex scenes and the frequent use of the c-word have put me off reading anything more from this author.
Would you like us to take another look at this review? Aisling is able to enter the ghostlands and speak to those found there, human souls and long-forgotten gods, beings capable of protecting and punishing, but who always demand a payment. It annoyed me to no end that the main character was a strong-willed woman in the big wide world but crumpled into a puddle of begging whenever the story went to the bed room which it did a lot in case anyone hasn’t realised that yet!
Aisling takes her spirit guardian and pet ferret Aziel with her and will go to Oakland. While I was reading this book I felt annoyed by how easily both characters were turned on by each other. Almost every scene had me fidgeting with nerves, crying out in fear, and fanning myself. The characters Ms Strong creates in Ghostland are raw and savage.
All in all, the mythology is just breathtaking. So really is the storyline with Ghostland. If I could rate it zero stars I would! View all 6 comments. It has ghosts, vampires I loved the part with themdemons Dijnnsangels, werewolves, shape shifters I started skipping over it when loins would start burning but that’s mild compared to what really was described, ha!

She wants to help ghostlamd around her even if she may endanger her life. What I didn’t like was the constant sexual escapades.
Arlene, I’m sorry to disappoint you with my links, if I do come up with something appropriate, I’ll let you know but probably not. In the day time, the rich congregate in cities and the poor work like serfs in the outlying country.
Sep 20, Miriam rated it it was ok Shelves: You submitted the following fhostland and review. In all honesty, I feel like a lot of the more interesting plot points and story development got lost behind all the rampant fucking, what with burning loins and clenching channels and swollen cunt lips no joke.
One of those serfs, Aisling, a shamaness one jorh can talk to ghosts and enter the ghostland; a kind of metaphysical place of death is taken from her farm by the church and caught up in the jorj for power in San Francisco.
There is a post death existence called Ghostland where souls spend varying lengths of time. The world in this book is well thought out, the characters real and well-rounded. Sep 06, Kate rated it really liked it. Aisling is very special.
Open Preview See a Problem? But the more he tastes her innocent spirit, the more he’ll use his fiery touch to keep her hungry for his mercy-even as they weave an erotic spell that he cannot escape.
This was a refreshing twist in my normal reads of paranormal romance. Full review is available here: Ghostland is book you will most certainly enjoy if you’re a fantasy lover.
Ghostland by Jory Strong (2009, Paperback)
Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. I don’t need characters suffering or feeling betrayed too much, but Tir was freed from his collar, remembered everything, had a tiny fight with the others of his kind and forgave hundreds of years of imprisonment in a matter of a few sentences. No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks!
I liked the angel and demon aspect rolled into a “middle ages” kind of world where the paranormal ruled part of the world, and the church ruled the other part with an iron fist.
Will definitely try to read further books set in the world of Ghostlands. The year doesn’t matter. Those things are even more on display in this novel, with the added bonus of a heroine who makes stupid decisions just to advance the plot one of my all-time unfavorite devices.
The title should be at least 4 characters long.
Untitled by Reese WitherspoonHardcover 5. Although the scene setting for this novel, and this series of novels, is very well thought out and very well presented, the plot to this story is almost inexistant. I’ve found my Tumblr entry when I was in the process of reading it back in The Ghostlands themselves were the most captivating part, and Mory loved the fate of Ilka and Filipe: What we might call “devil” are the demon kingdoms where the view is maybe less evil than I expected.
But the more Taken from her home and family, shamaness Aisling McConaughey must enter the “ghostlands” to save a wealthy man’s mistress. There was a small amount of growth, wherein she gains some confidence and backbone, but I didn’t get her appeal to Zurael and I didn’t buy their chemistry, if you could call it that.
