GHBT- My Demonic Ghost Series by Jacinta Maree- Review

My Demonic Ghost: Banished Spirits
Series-My Demonic Ghost Book #1
By- Jacinta Maree
Genre- YA Paranormal/Ghosts
Published By- Staccato Publishing

Rachael has traveled to Whitehaven to visit her father, a trek she can not help but dread given his recent descent into madness. Upon her arrival she realizes his deterioration has not only been mental, it’s been physical as well. His death comes as no surprise, but what she discovers soon after, is shocking when his burden becomes hers.

Lock is a banished spirit who must attach himself to a human host in order to hide from those who would drag him back to hell to be destroyed. When he meets Rachael he finds more than a host, he finds an ally.

Together they must defeat each of the seven sins in order to guarantee Lock's safe passage into the Third Realm, a loophole in creation that would allow him to escape hell and have peace at long last. Through their unlikely friendship, other banished spirits flock to them in hopes of a peace they hadn't dreamt possible.


My Demonic Ghost: Banished Spirits is the first book in the My Demonic Ghost Series by Jacinta Maree. In this installment of the series, we follow Rachael, whose father has taken a spiral into insanity--he believes he's possessed. Even Rachael believed he was crazy, but after his passing, she finds out not only was he telling the truth, but now his ghost, Lock, has become hers.

This book is f***ing AWESOME. I'm not even going to be official and professional right now, I was completely floored by this one. It is a completely different take on ghosts and possession, and I was sucked right in from the first chapter. Maree has a unique perspective and an awesome-epic-amazing idea here and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.

I am getting the paperbacks and rereading these five hundred more times. GET IT.

My Demonic Ghost: The Reapers
Series- My Demonic Ghost # 2
By- Jacinta Maree
Genre- YA Paranormal/Ghosts
Published By- Staccato Publishing

The day you die is meant to be the end, but for 18 year old Jordon Hastings, his death was only the beginning.

In a dark and twisted world, lost spirits known as Reapers remain behind after death to help collect the spirits from the realm of the living. A new Reaper, Jordon struggles to accept his fate and lingers in the shadows of his mortal life. But when a demon wolf starts to live through his shadow, hunting his family and friends Jordon has no choice but to leave. As soon as he accepts his new role the truth behind the relationship between Reapers and Angelic Hunters is revealed. His loyalty is tested, making him choose between a corrupted God and a single Banished Spirit.

My Demonic Ghost: The Reapers is the second book in the My Demonic Ghost Series by Jacinta Maree. In this installment, we have some reoccurring characters from Banished Spirits but it is, essentially, a whole different story. Jordan is an eighteen year old reaper who is not all that thrilled with his new "career"... He is starting to begrudgingly accept his fate when a new friend, Raix arrives and makes everything all the more difficult.

As you can see above, I really really really frickin' loved Banished Spirits, so The Reapers had a lot to live up to. Sequels after epicness scare the crap out of me because I always worry it just won't live up to its predecessor. Happily for me, NOT the case. The Reapers lives in the same world that Banished Spirits does, but it has a whole new story with the same incredible ideas. Once again I'm floored--I read this one even faster than the first one.

I cannot wait for book 3 from Jacinta... Or anything from her, honestly. I have a new fave!!
