Summary

Two sisters, haunted by more than their past... 

Just weeks after discovering each other’s existence, Jess and Hannah Ballard arrive at Fairhaven Hall, where they will learn the clandestine ways of the Durupinen, an ancient sect of women who control the Gateways between the worlds of the living and the dead. Though they are considered outcasts by most of their classmates, Jess and Hannah are determined to learn what they can to fulfill their responsibility to the many ghosts that haunt them. But danger, it seems, has followed them as closely as a shadow to their new home, and they have more questions than ever. 

Who is the desperate child spirit pursuing Jess, and what do her terrifying visions mean? What has happened to Dr. David Pierce, Jess’ friend and mentor, who has suddenly and mysteriously vanished? And just what is it about Hannah’s unique abilities that has the other Durupinen frightened of her? 

The Ballard sisters are about to find out, and the answers could destroy their newfound life before it has even begun. Spirit Prophecy is the second thrilling audiobook installment in E.E. Holmes’ award-winning Gateway Trilogy.

Great story, not a great recording.

The book is excellent. The further misadventures of two teens thrust into a world of spirits for which they are ill prepared.

The recording, unfortunately, lets it down, the sound quality changes palpably, sometimes mid sentence. I was obliged a couple of times to consult the book in order to understand a word. The volume dips here and there. The English accents are gamely attenpted, and are no worse than Spike and Druscilla on Buffy. It’s not enough to impede and understanding of the text, but it is distracting.

narration

The narration was pretty poor, the Scottish accent was horrendous on the verge of being offensive, very cringe

An anti-climax

Instead of getting better with each book in the series, the quality is falling. These books have a lot of brilliant ideas but no substance to present them. There has been the avoidance of the attraction between 2 of the characters for a long time and when they actually get together is is very disappointing. Its like watching a tv show where things happen but you have no insight into how the characters have actually been feeling, no glances, no excitement. I would say the series would be okay for very young teens but not anyone older.

Weird Accents

Loved this book but I preferred the actress who narrated the first book.
This girl makes weird accents and swallows spit so much that it would completely take me out of the story. Unfortunately she narrates the next book too :(

Didn't like as much....

I have read (listened) to all the EE Homes Gateway series books. Some sections listening to this one I felt like I was listening to the same book again, rather than a continuing story.

Has potential in future books

The story is pretty good, but it sounds too much like a little girl’s tale. Predictable often, but sometimes surprising. The narrator is giving it her best, but comes up a bit short. A different narrator could have made this come alive. Much is mispronounced, and the characters could have been differentiated better. The little girl logic is reinforced quite a bit with the little girl style narration. I give it a C+. I expect the writer will improve with each book. I will be watching with great hope. The narrator should spend a bit more time crafting. The producer who allowed so many glaring mistakes needs to find another line of work, as they have failed both the writer and narrator.
