This is a sequel to "Four and Twenty Blackbirds," but I thought it worked as a stand-alone.
In the first book, we were introduced to Eden Moore, a young woman in the American South whose life is considerably complicated by her ability to see ghosts.
In this installment, the ghosts of the Civil War dead start appearing to her, seeming to want something. Rumors, centering around an urban legend about some kind of monster that haunts the battlefield, start flying. It's strange enough that a slick TV crew from a paranormal investigation reality show are soon on the scene, much to Eden's disgust.
Eden would rather ignore ghosts and just live a normal life - but she begins to realize that whether she wants to or not, she and her friends are going to have to do something.
A fun, well-crafted ghost story.
