Publisher's Summary

It's the most anticipated reality television event of the season: three spiritualists gathered together in one house to raise the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. For celebrity medium Jaime Vegas, it is to be her swan song: one last publicity blast for a celebrity on the wrong side of 40. But unlike her colleagues, who are more show than substance, Jaime is the real thing. Reluctant to upstage her fellow spiritualists, Jaime tries to suppress her talents, as she has done her entire life. But there is something lurking in the maze of gardens behind the house: a spirit without a voice. And it won't let go until somehow Jaime hears its terrible story. For the first time in her life, Jaime Vegas understands what humans mean when they say they are haunted. Distraught, Jaime looks to fellow supernatural Jeremy Danvers for help.As the touches and whispers from the garden grow more frantic, Jaime and Jeremy embark on an investigation into a Los Angeles underworld of black magic and ritual sacrifice. When events culminate in a psychic showdown, Jaime must use the darkest power she has to defeat a shocking enemy: one whose malicious force comes from the last realm she expected.In a world whose surface resembles our own, Kelley Armstrong delivers a stunning alternate reality, one where beings of the imagination live, love, and fight a never-ending battle between good and evil.

An Absorbing Read

I have to admit I didn't think I would like this book. Usually, books about people with supernatural powers are either incredibly cliched or so tongue-in-cheek or worst of all, so Anne Ricesque, that they invariably disappoint. NOT SO with this gem. The author has created a stand alone novel with a compplete alternate world. Also, this novel hints at the existance of others, but I have never read anything by her before and I couldn't stop listening. A cross between a mystery and mild horror/fantasy, the only problem I had was with the ending. A bit hasty- I still had questions - for my taste. However, as I believe there will be more novels with this main character, I'll have to wait and see!

This is Number 7 in the women of the otherworld. Bitten is also available in audiobook format, (just not through this service). This book is about Jaime, a necromancer and her love for the werewolf leader Jeremy.

I wish Audible would get the rest of the books. Awesome. 5 stars.
