Looks like i'll have to be the first to say it.

This book is really terrible. I love the Aisling Grey series. I laughed out loud at those books. This book is like those books gawky younger sister trying way too hard.

I realize that suspension of disbelief is part and parcel of reading this genre of books but this strains credulity. I found the characters to be trite and two dimensional. The names alone were enough to put me off. A bad guy is named Spider. Seriously. I felt like she should have named him "Hilter McGenghisKahn"

And the universe that the book exists in. Woo. I thought the Aisling one was complicated. This one was both complicated and dull.

In short, don't read this book.

kind of a modernday version of "CLUE" everyone is stuck in a haunted ghostly house trying to figure out who the murderer is. Everyone is a suspect. Including the poltergeist!

Did not enjoy this as much as her other books written under Katie MacAlister. Still good in a quirky sort of way.

great first book in what I hope is a series! Very complicated story line, but she does a great job in explaining the "otherworld" around which the storyline is built. I found the characters very well developed and the minor characters highly amusing (imps and gay ghosts who are gourmet cooks. I read straight through! Enjoy.

Normally I'm not a big fan of mysteries, but I love Katie MacAlister's Otherworld novels, and this is the first book in her new mystery series written under the name Kate Marsh. I love this author because she is laugh-out-loud funny and because the people/characters/creatures in her Otherworld are so interesting. She creates this whole culture behind them which is fascinating to me. It's a great escapist world when you're feeling overwhelmed by this one. Very light and fun.

Cute, funny. I'd read another in the series if she writes one.
