Footsteps in the attic. Toys that play by themselves. A dark presence in an upstairs room.

Paranormal investigator Ellie Jordan faces a difficult new case. Her new clients are a family haunted by multiple ghosts and a poltergeist that wrecks their home at night. Their seven-year-old son’s invisible friends may not be imaginary at all, but the restless spirits of dead children.

To clear her clients’ house of the dangerous entities, Ellie must unravel the mysterious deaths of another family who lived in the old mansion more than a hundred and sixty years ago—and she must do it before the ghosts can carry out their malevolent designs on her clients and their children.

                    My Thoughts                   

The Gang is back and better than ever! 

This series is great! It has a lot of room to grow and explore even more old and erie places and haunted houses. Cold Shadows, Part two in the Ellie Jordan Series, is even easier to read than the first novel, Ghost Trapper. Now that the main characters are established it was very easy to jump right in with Ellie and Stacey to solve this new case. Even though this is still a haunting mystery, it is so different from the previous case, and I have no doubt that every book in this series will be unique and different and definitely not predictable.

I was very glad that Jacob was still in the picture, and I do hope that he makes even more of an appearance in the up and coming novels.. perhaps, and this is just me, but I feel like there could possibly be something between Jacob and Ellie...

Putting my personal love triangle aside, This is a great new series and Cold Shadows does not dissapoint. As always, I am a huge J.L. Bryan fan and his books always make my automatic read list !

Plot : Great, each book is a different haunting to deal with. love the layout of this series. Excited to read more in the series. 

Characters: Love! J.L. Bryan easily sucks me into a series by making me love all the characters! Ellie, Stacey and Jacob make a great ghost busting team! Loved the introduction of Juniper & Crane

Cover: Like it a lot. Fits exactly with a scene in the book when she is out by the lake. I will however have to quote my husbands view on her outfit again ... " Her outfit is better for ghost trapping this time".

  1. I still need to read book one! I haven't read any of his books yet and I need to fix that asap because all my favorite bloggers seem to love his writing. I adore ghost hunting stories, so this series seems like the place to start. Lovely review!
