Summary

After losing the family fortune to a fraudulent psychic, inventor Henry Strauss is determined to bring the otherworld under control through the application of science. All he needs is a genuine haunting to prove his Electro-Séance will work. 

A letter from wealthy industrialist Dominic Gladfield seems the answer to his prayers. Gladfield’s proposition: a contest pitting science against spiritualism, with a hefty prize for the winner. The contest takes Henry to Reyhome Castle, the site of a series of brutal murders decades earlier. There he meets his rival for the prize, the dangerously appealing Vincent Night. Vincent is handsome, charming...and determined to get Henry into bed. Henry can’t afford to fall for a spirit medium, let alone the competition. But nothing in the haunted mansion is quite as it seems, and soon winning the contest is the least of Henry’s concerns. For the evil stalking the halls of Reyhome Castle wants to claim not just Henry and Vincent’s lives but their very souls.

Very good!

I enjoyed reading this book back when it first came out and am so glad it is now available in audiobook format. Greg Tremblay does such an awesome job of bringing the whole thing to life with his performance.
Jordan's awesome storytelling + Greg's narration is a fantastic combination.

A ghost story in its natural format

I've already read the book before and loved it, so there were no surprises here. Anyone looking for an excellent ghost story with M-M romance elements should look no further than the Spirits series. Audio is the natural format for a ghost story and had I not known the plot beforehand I'd probably jump on my seat many times.
My only issue with the audiobook was that the narrator talked a little bit too fast for me sometimes (English is not my native language).
Hopefully the next volumes would come out in audio too.

A thrilling supernatural mystery!!!

If you enjoyed her Hexworld books or Widdershins, you will LOVE this one!!!

This book was my first M/M, almost two years ago, and it not only introduced me to Jordan L. Hawk that has become one of my favorite authors. Jordan has a fantastic writing style and is one of the best world builder I have read to date. All three of her 19th century book serieses are fantastically written and have an ingenues way of being both realistic and raw while still having supernatural and magical elements. I love the level of research and feel of scientific accuracy this book has, the exorcism feels logical and true, and to be able to write it in such a way is a true gift indeed. The other thing I love about Jordan's writing is her inclusive, diverse writing. There are characters from every color, ethnicity, gender and gender identity in her writing and she fits each character and story to the time period with such accuracy it's astounding. She writes real people with genuine struggles in an other worldly setting, not an easy feat.
This book is a mystery both scary and intriguing, the plot twisting and unexpected.
I love the struggle between Vincent and Henry, both striving for the same goal but from opposing sides. The "hate-turned-to-lust-turned-to-friendship" between them is wonderful, with just the right amount of snark and fluster. They each bring something to the table and if they can only work together they might survive this hunted mansion. Lizzy and Joe, the wonderful and funny partners and co-workers are each a formidable female and show a strength and wisdom much greater then their sometimes dens male counterparts. This is the start of a wonderful series that puts a twist on Ghost Busters and combines science and spirit to save the day.

***Audiobook***
I remember e-mailing to ask if this book will come out in audio after listening to her amazing book Hexbreaker on audio (my first audiobook too!) and enjoying it so much. Little did I know that once it came out the narrator will be one of my favorites, Greg Trembly. He is a true master of emotions and has in incredible gift of understanding the characters in any story. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book he narrated and here was not different. Greg narrated the book with the perfect pitch, accents, emotion and pace. His performance was just what I wanted this book on audio to be, capturing the spooky dangerous atmosphere of the hunted house an delivery a shiver worthy narration. Having read this book and loved it re-reading it on audio was a great experience I feel only added to the story and I can not wait for the next ones to come out on audio!
