Ford was a character that I would have liked to see developed more. I feel like his mother’s illness could have been delved into more. Ruby and his relationship could also have been strengthened to the reader if they had more interaction/outings. I will say that I was pleased with the end of the story (and not just because it was over). The end gave my frustrations an outlet and brought a touch of hope for Ruby and Ford. The ending is what moved it from a 2 to a 3 star rating.

When Kate approaches him he dismisses her assurances that he has powers. He has never believed in the paranormal and for good reason. His family has always had horrible luck. If he was a witch or had anything “supernatural” hiding up his sleeve he wouldn’t have had the life he’s had. Lucky for Kate his interest in her means he humors her.
After discovering that a curse is the cause of all of his family’s problems, Jarrod and Kate travel back to when the curse originated. But fitting in will prove to be difficult. This is where the story really takes off. Will they be able to break or prevent the curse? And if they do what will it do to the future they return to? This book is full of mystery, suspense, action, magic, self discovery, and of course a touch of romance. I highly recommend it!

Emma Vaile is the most powerful ghostkeeper in centuries. Which is great when she's battling the wraith-master Neos, but terrible when she's flirting with fellow ghostkeeper (and soul mate) Bennett. When ghostkeepers fall in love, the weaker one loses all power, and that's not something Bennett can handle. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to lose herself in school with fellow ghostkeeper, Natalie. When a new team of ghostkeepers arrive—one a snarky teen
boy, the other a British scholar—Emma finds solace in training for the battle against Neos. But as the team grows stronger, they are threatened by an unknown force. One they thought was good.
As chilling and page-turning as Deception, this sequel will grab readers and hold them to the last page. No one is safe from suspicion as Emma closes in on the traitor.
And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul
