Welcome today's stop on the The Ghost Host by DelSheree Gladden Blog Tour hosted by I am a Reader Today's stop is a review as well as a chance to enter the great giveaway that is being run throughout this tour.
This was a really fun read that I am hoping is the beginning of an ongoing series.I loved the idea behind this story and am pleased the potential of the premise was borne out in the novel. The story itself flowed from beginning to end and I finished the entire novel in a matter of hours and when I did finally surface I was left wanting more.I liked the characters in this story. I liked Echo. I liked her strength in the face of all the had been through and what she had to face with her over protective and unbelieving parents. I liked that in this novel we get to see her really take control of her life as she struggles to find out the reason for her mysterious stalker ghost. I also liked Malachi and the fact that the story was told from the alternating points of view of Echo and Malachi as they manoeuvred their own mysteries which the wove around each other creating the layers that made the story complete.I also liked their interaction and their relationship and the strength they were able to pull, from each other.The story itself was a fun read with enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing until the end. As mentioned before I liked the way the two different mysteries twisted and turned around each other, intersecting in parts as the layers of the mystery are slowly unravelled. The pace worked well pulling the reader along to each new revelation and more and more into the story.I really enjoyed this story and the characters and am really hoping that I will get to read more about Echo and Malachi, their friends and their adventures.I give this story 3 3/4 starsSapphired Dragon XX
The first eighteen years of Echo Simmons’ life have been less than ideal. On more than one occasion her parents have considered committing her. They don’t believe she sees ghosts or that they harass her on a daily basis. So when a rogue ghost begins tormenting her, they’re the last people she’s going to tell. Her best friends Holden and Zara are doing their best to help, but ghost attacks are only the beginning of Echo’s problems.
Handling the ghosts by giving them a voice on YouTube through her webshow has been her saving grace—even if her parents think it’s all a hoax—but that gets a little complicated when the ghost of Madeline Crew reveals a little too much about her previous life and the FBI shows up at her door wanting to know how she gained access to long-buried government secrets.
It just keeps getting worse from there. Madeline’s message to her great grandson sparks a strange connection between Echo and Malachi, which leads to Georgia, secrets, mistakes, love, lies, and life changing revelations. .
Author DelSheree Gladden
DelSheree Gladden was one of those shy, quiet kids who spent more time reading than talking. Literally. She didn't speak a single word for the first three months of preschool, but she had already taught herself to read. Her fascination with reading led to many hours spent in the library and bookstores, and eventually to writing. She wrote her first novel when she was sixteen years old, but spent ten years rewriting and perfecting it before having it published.
Native to New Mexico, DelSheree and her husband spent several years in Colorado for college and work before moving back home to be near family again. Their two children love having their cousins close by. When not writing, you can find DelSheree reading, painting, sewing and trying not to get bitten by small children in her work as a dental hygienist. DelSheree has several bestselling young adult series, including "Invisible" which was part of the USA Today Bestselling box set, "Pandora." The Date Shark Series is her first contemporary romance series, and her first book in her upcoming new adult series, The Ghost Host, will be releasing 2015.
