Once again as the narrator changed, I found myself taking a while to warm up to Eve (and missing both Elena and Paige). Perhaps because Eve had been seen as a slightly bad person in the other books, it was hard at first to want to like her and want to hear her story. But I did find myself warming to Eve and liking her story and feeling awful about her situation. And I shed a few tears at the end. Once again, Armstrong does a great job with descriptions (although there are some points where I almost wished it wasn't a great job - in the minds of killers and when Eve goes to the hell where the murderers are, especially the cave *shudder*).

Best so far in a terrific series (Women of the Otherworld). Eve Levine (half demon, witch ghost) teams up with the love of her life and afterlife, Kris and a down to earth angel to track down and recapture a demi-demon who has been feeding the need for chaos through serial murders. The characters (as always) are very real, the plot is well done and the ending is satisfying. Note to new readers - this series is FAR better if started at the beginning, due to the large cast of rotating characters.

Really enjoyed the bad but misunderstood witch, Eve's story. She is reunited with her sorcerer lover, Kristof, in the ghost realm. The plot is full of twists and turns and a surprising ending !

My first foray into dark fantasy and definitely my favorite of the series. Eve's connection to her daughter is heartbreaking, and I remember really loving the plot. It's also not as explicit as earlier works by Armstrong.

If you enjoy the Fantasy genre, this is a good one. By the author of "Industrial Magic", the book combines the Fates, scenes from the Afterlife and practical, everyday, mundane life of the living.

After I first met Eve, I couldn't find any likable or redeeming qualities about this character. I wasn't upset when Eve died either. The biggest thing I loved about Haunted is that there is a lot more to Eve than we had seen before. Eve really surprised me. As a ghost, she demonstrates all of the same annoying characteristics she had when she was alive. Unlike in my last meeting with Eve, this time was vastly different.

It was a little sad to me that it took her dying to bring out her human side. Eve wants to watch over Savannah and is prepared to spend all of eternity doing just that and spending time with Savannah's father, Kristof, when Eve is detoured from her goal by the Fates to track down a demon who uses women to commit murder.

With the assistance of an angel, Trsiel, Eve accepts the mission which takes Eve on a whirlwind journey. Along the way, Eve crosses paths with notorious characters of the past, such as Lizzie Borden. Eve also has to use her wits when she goes into a hell dimension to track down clues.

This story moves at a very fast pace with a lot of intensity. There were so many scenes that kept me on the edge of my seat with the suspense of waiting to see what was coming next. Mixed into this, is the relationship between Eve and Kristof. I found it hopeful that Eve's afterlife wasn't suffering and torment, though I was expecting her to receive some type of punishment for her deeds while alive. The tenacity with which Eve works this assignment gave me hope that even the most darkest of witches has a heart and is worthy of redemption.

I can't really say I was disappointed because I was expecting not to like this story after I read the synopsis on it, which is why it took me so long to acquire this book, though I breezed through her others. I love her werewolf stories (Bitten and Broken), I like the witch stories a little less but they were still good, but this one with the ghosts and the angels, demons, fates, etc. etc. in the ridiculous afterlife - well, it just had no structure and was basically a free-for-all where the author can cheat by inventing what she likes to get her characters in or out of a jam. I like Kelley Armstrong but if she tries to write another book in the same setting, I'm not reading it.

I enjoyed this one much more than the other two about witches. Eve was a fun character and all of the adventures she had to get the Nix were exciting. And while the ending was happy, it was sort of sad too... But, overall, this one was much better than the ones with Paige for a narrator. I'm VERY excited for the next one... a return to the werewolves!
