Review: Haunted by Dana Michelle Burnett

“Becca has accepted the horrors of her past life, and emerged with her ghostly love Alastor at her side.  But her happiness is short lived when she realizes that balancing her past and present won't be easy...

Becca has already decided that it's Alastor that she loves, but now, as their uncommon relationship limits Becca's future, Alastor must decide if he's willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for Becca's happiness....And will Becca's sanity survive?”

Following after Spiritus, this book continues to tell the story of Becca as she proceeds to live a normal life, while being able to see and hear the ghost of Alastor Sinclair, her husband from a past life – a life in which she was responsible for his death. She struggles with her love for Alastor and her desire to lead the life of a normal young woman and the two warring forces within her threaten her ability to stay sane. Haunted is a chilling tale that will leave you wanting more with its amazing detail and gripping plot. 

I rate this book: 

After reading Spiritus, I absolutely could not wait to read Haunted. However, since the book had yet to be released at that time, waiting was the only option I had. And I have to say that this book was well worth the wait! It held my interest with the same intensity that the first book of the series did. I couldn’t put it down and finished it in one day. I loved that Haunted was written in a completely different style than Spiritus was. It made the story more interesting and helped to move the plot along at a rather brisk pace. Haunted is different than Spiritus, but it’s a good kind of different – one that makes it a quick and engaging read. If you’ve read Spiritus, then you must pick up Haunted. And if you haven’t picked up the first book in this series, then you should definitely check it out. You won’t be disappointed with either of these books.

Okay so I haven't even read Spiritus and read the Synopsis to Haunted before realising it was a sequel. A few spoilers considering I've now added Spiritus to my to-read list! It sounds interesting (:
