Summary

The bigger they are, the harder they maul.  

Immortal not-ghost Wes Cooper and his vampire partner, Hudson Rojas, have it all - rewarding private investigation work, great friends, and, most important, a love that's endured. But ever since Wes sent a demon screaming back to the beyond, his abilities have grown overpowering and overwhelming. He's hiding the fact that he's losing control the best he can, but it's hard to keep anything a secret for long when your partner's a former cop...and especially when your partner's a former cop who wants to move in together.  

When all hell literally breaks loose in Toronto and super-strength ghosts are unleashed on Wes and his friends, he and Hudson are thrown into a case unlike any they've seen before. To save the city, Wes needs to harness his new power...and find some answers. But when he gets them, the solution to fix it all could mean losing everything.  

Contains mature themes.

#FromTheBeyond

Just as great as the first one.......
With ghost, imps, and he'll hounds running amok around the city, our favorite Not Ghost and Vampire combo struggle to figure out why all these rips between the real world and their other are opening.

enjoyed it as much as the first

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: absolutely
Was I invested in the characters: definitely
What did I like about the story? was fun, entertaining and well paced and both the main and supporting characters are well written and likeable. I like that Wes' sexuality (or lack of) isn't an issue for Hudson and he accepts Wes the way he is, and that Evan's depression hasn't just been ignored.
Was there anything that didn't work for me? nope - loved every second of it.

Overall comment: The PI Business is growing, Wes, Hudson and their friends battle an ever increasing number of not so friendly paranormal creatures that keep slipping through from the beyond, there is a mystery to solve,, Wes' magic continues to grow, we meet "people" from both Hudson and Wes' pasts and Hudson and Wes continue to "suck" at communication. There is so much going on in this one that is all intricately tied together at the end ... nothing worth while is ever easy 😁

Narrator comment: Greg Boudreaux can do no wrong in my book. I'm so happy he''s narrating this series, his skill and performance as a voice actor bring these characters to life and do justice to a story that shines.
