As of June 9, 2012 I will no longer be accepting e-books for review. This is due to the overwhelming
demand of reviews, work and night classes taking up a lot of my spare time. It
is taking me several months to read and post reviews therefore until “my to be
reviewed list” is smaller I will no longer accept any more e-books for review.
I am extremely sorry.

Review: Spiritus by Dana Michelle Burnett


A love that refuses to die…
“As I watched him vanish into a soft mist that faded away, I knew that he was no ordinary spirit…I knew that he was a dangerous entity that could be in some corner of another realm planning his revenge, but I also knew that I was hopelessly in love with him.”
When Becca moves into her ancestral home in Corydon, Indiana, her life takes a puzzling and thrilling turn when she meets the ghost haunting the halls. As the seductive spirit lures her closer and closer, she learns about her own past and starts to understand that some mistakes are meant to last.
Becca McAllister has always been different from other girls her age. Never part of the "in crowd", Becca never really fit in anywhere. When her mother dies and her father moves them to the small town of Corydon, Indiana, Becca didn't expect things to change.
But things do change when Becca accidentally makes contact with a one hundred and sixty year old ghost, Alastor Sinclair, that haunts the halls of her new home.
To Becca, Alastor is a seductive spirit that seems to see straight into her soul. To Alastor, Becca is what he was waited a century for--A second chance.
But the closer they get, the more Becca realizes that this isn't the first time she and Alastor have known each other. Worse still, is she the one responsible for his death so long ago? And if so, did he come back for love or revenge? Excerpt and cover from Dana’s website.

Spiritus was an interesting story about ghosts. Becca seemed like a girl who is trying to find herself. I really didn’t like Alastor I don’t know if it was because of is “old-personality” that made him seem like an asshole or if he was just an asshole. I disliked how Becca left everything/everyone just to get time with Alastor. Too much love sick puppy dog in her that I didn’t care for. Spiritus didn’t leave me wanting more but it didn’t leave me disliking the story either. I’m not sure where book 2 is going to take the story but I would like to see Becca branch out and become her own person. If you like ghost tales you may enjoy this tale.
