    Ghost Maker takes things to a whole new level for Claire Zach and ghost dog Enzo as they must defeat an evil ghost while searching for a ghostly healer for the spiritual tear in Claire's side slowly killing herFive books in and the series has hit its stride Readers need to read this urban fantasy series in order from the beginning when Claire reluctantly receives her ghost seeing gift and spirit guide dog Enzo and when Zach thinks his career in law enforcement is over from a severe disability Both have to fight personal demons and emerging psychic gifts to become a romantic partnership and ghost hunting teamThe series started slow and not completely engaging for me but in the last few books I have come to love what I'm getting In this latest installment Zach and Claire are trying to figure out things still but have at least declared their 'I love you's Claire is now 'out' as a psychic and has taken on jobs through the psychic community Zach helps though he still keeps his lesser psychic gift to himselfThe latest job has torn the spiritual tear received on an earlier case open further in Claire's side She wanted to pretend things were getting better and wants to resent Zach and Enzo's hovering but they are right to be scared for her Nothing is helping But then The Other is coerced by Zach to explain that Claire must find a powerful healer spirit who can repair her spirit Using her research skills and psychic hunches Claire narrows down the location of where this spirit might be Manitou SpringsRight about the time Claire is ready to find the healer Tony Rickman Zach's boss has an investigation job for him find a runaway boy who's been on the streets for months Zach knows that the situation isn't promising because it has been so long but takes the case He splits his time helping Claire hunt for the ghost healer and hunting the streets of Denver for a teenage boy Meanwhile a great evil is on the loose and a serial killing rampage is already underway Claire Zach and Enzo face another insurmountable challengeYep this one was chock full of challenge for the team of ghost hunters Claire is at her accountant eccentric heart best as is Zach They might have gotten over the big hump of acceptance for their gifts and their differences but that doesn't mean they don't still have issues to challenge them I used to get very frustrated with their stubbornness over different things but now there is a good balance between natural conflict and the resolution processI am also adjusted to the pacing of this series It has its spikes of excitement but in general it flows along smoothly and steadily like a cozy mystery with paranormal elements The characters hunt down answers for their cases and then have the big supernatural confrontation making these lighter weight Urban FantasyThe worldbuilding continues to grow Claire and Zach's story More little tidbits came out about their psychic abilities With Claire its an issue of reading her great aunt's journals learning from her spirit guides and practicing her gift but with Zach his background and gift are a mystery so it trickles out the reveals for him which I find excitingThis latest case like the others before take Claire and Zach into an investigation into the past of the Old West This time it is the town and environs of Manitou Springs where TB sufferers used to come for their health The ghosts in this one were part of that from the sweet young married couple who both defied their families and found love even while dying of the disease and of the young Catholic nun who ministered to the sufferers The author always does her homework and brings out different facets of Old West history through these storiesAgain and in summary this series keeps getting better and I continue to look forward to each new installment and the ghost hunting case that comes with it For those who enjoy a lighter and slower paced Urban Fantasy with uirky and different characters give these a goMy thanks to Penguin Group for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review

    With Clare’s health fading she and her partner—the love of her life—detective Zach Slade head to Manitou Springs Colorado in search of the only healer who can help them the ghost of Sister Juliana Emmanuel whose healing skills live on in the afterlifeUnfortunately for Clare the nun’s ghost is elusive and the town is teeming with spirits who all want to speak with Clare—newer ones street kids who've been killed and want their bodies found and their murders avengedNow with the help of Zach and Sister Juliana Clare must find the killer before he strikes again But to do so she will face an evil that could destroy everything she and Zach hold dear—including their love Ghost Maker was a little slower on the uptake compared to the last couple books There were some moments that felt a little 'okay we're herenow what?' so it took a little while to engage into the excitement once it picked back up againClare and Zach also felt like they sort of stalled out as well They've gotten to this point but mostly what they have in common right now is the fact that they're trying to figure out what's going on verses whats going on in their relationship which felt a little disjointed to me since their relationship seemed like part of their strength what made them betterThe secondary characters get some page time which was interesting but I was still looking for a intimate vibe to pick up for Clare and Zach which kind of felt missing by the endMy final opinion is that the book slows things down a bit and puts it into neutral but its still worth the read BooklikesGoodreadsTwitterGoogle PlusBlogger Pinterest FacebookWordpressRSSBlogLovin Krissy's Bookshelf Reviews received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review All thoughts comments and ratings are my own Krissy's Bookshelf Reviews received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review from Penguin Berkley Publishing If any of Krissy's Bookshelf Reviews has been helpful please stop by to like or let me know what you think I love hearing from followers Thank you

    Actual Rating 35 StarsGhost Maker was another interesting installment in Robin D Owens’ Ghost Seer series This time around Clare Zach and Enzo had to scurry around to find a way to heal Clare’s supernatural wounds and locate a missing street kid before a killer could get to himI really like the world Owens has created for this series and it seems like with each installment the characters–as well as the readers–learn something new There were a lot of little tidbits of information that Zach Clare and Enzo uncovered in this story that will help them understand their ‘gifts’ And that will help them on future cases of course I love the learning process they’ve been immersed in It makes the story seem realistic that they’ve had to figure things out as they go and that they started from a skeptical frame of mindRead MoreOriginal NotesGhost Maker was another interesting installment in Robin D Owens' Ghost Seer series The story itself had a nice fast moving pace to it and the tidbits of information Clare and Zach learned here should help them on future cases And while I might have found the dialogue a little disjointed this time I liked that our two main characters still had a solid connection between them and they're making strides toward a long term relationship Full review to come

  5. Marlene Marlene says:

    This joint review was originally published at The Book PushersE Marlene and I have jointly reviewed the previous books in this series since Owens falls on our autobuy list so we decided to join opinions once Marlene Basically we have a streak going and were all too happy to extend it to another entry in this seriesE And what an entry this was The last book was one of the darker installments in this series and really left a lingering mark on Clare one which was steadily taking a greater and greater toll on Clare’s health She had finally pushed past her reluctance to take up her calling and was no longer in danger of dying by rejecting her power but she also learned that spirits and ghosts could do much to harm her then use her living warmth to power their trip to the next stop Unlike regaining warmth once the ghosts are gone the wound to Clare’s spirit remained So the focus was on healing Clare and along the way things got complicatedMarlene Things always get complicated when Clare and Zach and Enzo are on the case That’s what makes this series so compelling But up until now a big chunk of the conflict has been Clare’s reluctance to accept her gift At first it was only the thought of the alternative death that kept her in practice Just as she’s finally accepted her gift and her calling she’s forced to deal with a spirit wound that may kill her even uicker Clare has just accepted that she will have regular clients Now she has to put everything on hold to take herself as a client And she is not happy about it At allE Clare not being happy was probably an understatement She grew up as the only reliable person in her family and was used to being alone independent and fully in control of all aspects of her life Through the previous books as Marlene mentioned above she was coming to terms to her new full complicated life and had finally reached an euilibrium when this happened One of the things I loved in this book is how Clare reacted to the sudden change by fearing she was going to skew the sense of eual partnership with Zach This has repercussions later and some very interesting developments involving Zach Enzo and Clare and their separate impressions of what partnership meansMarlene Both Clare and Zach have been loners for most of their lives They are used to depending on no one but themselves They have managed to carve out a partnership after a lot of difficulty by finally managing to recognize that each of them have strengths that the other lacks But Zach has a protective streak a mile wide and Clare rightfully fears that if she is dependent he will become overprotective Again And she has deep seated fears of her own about depending too much at all on anyone else because there hasn’t been anyone in her life that she could depend on Part of what makes this relationship work for the reader is that we see them negotiate this important boundarySomething else about this series and their relationship that we have to be reminded of over and over is just how little world time has elapsed between the beginning of the series and now We are five books in and it’s taken two years for those books to be published But for Clare and Zach it’s been less than six weeks That’s a very short time to adjust to discovering that your entire life is going to be extremely different from what you planned and to develop what looks like the relationship that will sustain the rest of that life In this book we see some of the two steps forward except it’s like three now and one step back involved in blending two adult lives into oneE Ooh very good point about the actual passage of book time vs reader time They have made some major steps forward and have started developing the little wordless routineshabits that come with blending lives but neither is completely comfortable with their weaknesses being balanced by their partner’s strengths In addition to working on their relationship it was good to see both Clare and Zach becoming comfortable with their psychic abilities and willing to call others in their close circle out when they were keeping things hiddenI do think a certain conversationpromise Zach made is going to rear its ugly head at the worst moment in the future with the foundation they are currently building and Enzo’s influence to help calm the storm I have my hopes the circle of friends will add some buffering but I am afraid Clare is going to try to isolate herself at a time when she really needs to depend on othersMarlene I agree with you about that promise Those sorts of things ALWAYS come back to haunt There is definitely a snake in the ectoplasmic grass so to speak who is going to bite Zach and probably Clare and Enzo as well in the ass at the worst possible time and in the worst possible wayIt is Clare’s way to isolate herself Also Zach’s Having the same bad habits can be as binding in a relationship as having the same good ones Been there done that Clare’s whole universe has been thrown on its ear – she has to depend on others and she doesn’t have much foundation to build on there Zach is the same but it manifests differently Also because Zach’s difficulty is physical and obvious it is a bit easier to deal with if only a bit But still the things that have brought them together have also completely upset both their worlds and while a lot of it is good and the outcome of some it will depend on what they make of it there is also plenty of bad stuff to deal with into the bargainStarting with this case Or cases Or unholy messE This was a mess Zach was involved in a case which pushed so many of his protective buttons and his old senses as a cop kept him thinking hope was minimal Then he was struggling with the search to find a way to heal Clare when no one could give him a concrete solution Add in Clare’s need to heal herself not feel dependent not let others down always responsible and to find a ghost who really doesn’t want to be found and this book had so many different emotional aspects I was especially struck by how much self awareness and understanding was reuired to survive everything Owens threw at her charactersMarlene This case really upped the stakes in so many different directions So much of it was heartbreaking While Zach’s instincts made him fear the worst what finally happened was still plenty bad It was a case where even the good ending had an awful lot of bitter mixed with the sweet At the same time it was a case that reuired both of their talents used to the fullest Zach needed Clare’s ghost seeing ability to solve the real world aspects of the case and Clare needed Zach’s police work to find the ghost In spite of everything going on they managed to work together extremely wellThat Clare’s search for a good ghost to heal her turned out to be tied into Zach’s case wasn’t unexpected but the way that everything worked together packed an emotional punch At the same time while they worked together well on a professional level we could still see them figuring out where they stand as a couple Those issues also reuired a lot of self awareness and a whole bunch of compromise But I love the way we see them working things outE I really enjoyed watching Clare and Zach work together It is similar to how one of the characters raised the possibility that Clare and Zach were put in a certain position to make things right almost like a set of chess pieces who still had elements of free will Something else that didn’t uite sit comfortably with either one Yet at the end despite the bitter sweetness of solving Zach’s case and Clare’s healing along with the changes needed for Zach to consider growing roots they almost seemed at peace I loved how a reminder of the peace and happiness from the “spiritual” climax of the story came back to their house with themMarlene YESSSSS I also love the way that Enzo is growing and changing right along with them He is still in so many ways a big shaggy playful albeit spiritual dog But he is also a spirit who is gaining in intelligence and power as the three of them form a tighter team And relying on Enzo has made it easier for Clare and Zach both to learn to rely on others and each other I love EnzoBut speaking of the spiritual side of this story one of the things that I really liked was the way that each of the ghosts saw heaven as they believed it to be All belief systems seem to be eually valid I personally found this concept to be both very inclusive and very coolE So completely agree with all of those points Enzo is fabulous and watching his development with growing independenceautonomy is always a delight I personally would love to see him vanuish a certain dweller of the ectoplasm narrows eyes I also really like how heaven or the next step was individual to each ghost depending on who they were and what they valued I also enjoyed the variety of different reasons each had for staying anchored instead of always needing the agent of their death tracked downThe Ghost Seer series continues to grow and so does my enjoyment Ghost Maker was a complex layered story which delivered in suspense character growth and worldbuilding without seeming heavy handed or overblown I remain hooked on it and Owens’ writingI give Ghost Maker an A BMarlene This series just gets better and better I’ve enjoyed every entry but Ghost Maker had me completely enthralled from beginning to end And ending which was both just right and came much too soon – I wasn’t ready to let go yet Hopefully it won’t be too long before the next book in the seriesOwens is one of my auto buy authors and books like Ghost Maker are the reason She has created a compelling world or in this case offshoot of our world and populates it with fascinating people while creating a marvelous romance – in this case a sustained one that continues to add depth with each entryAnd I absolutely adore EnzoI give Ghost Maker an A HAPPY HALLOWEEN

    Ghost Seer #5This is the last book in this series so far It kind of ended but not really There were a lot of unresolved plot lines left dangling so there is definitely room to add I have to honestly say that had I only purchased the first book in this series I would never have read the whole series as it is right now At no time did I get hooked into this series to the point that I was dreaming about it or thinking about it outside of the time I spent listening to it If another book in this series comes out I doubt that I will read it Unlike the author's Celta's Heartmates series which I still think about and hope for books in this series has not left me wanting I will definitely be trading these five books for new books to listen to I will never want to read them again and I only keep books that I think I will want to read againAs it stands my all time favorite psychic giftghostf genre series is the PsyCop series by Jordan Castille Price EnjoyReadOctober 23 24 2020 – Audible AudioBook
