Today I’m pleased to be taking part in the blog tour for Ghoster. My review is written with thanks to Tracy Fenton for inviting me on the tour and Orbit Books for my copy of the book via Netgalley.
Kate Collins has been ghosted.
She was supposed to be moving in with her new boyfriend Scott, but all she finds after relocating to Brighton is an empty flat. Scott has vanished. His possessions have all disappeared.
Except for his mobile phone.
Kate knows she shouldn’t hack into Scott’s phone. She shouldn’t look at his Tinder, his texts, his social media. But she can’t quite help herself.
That’s when the trouble starts. Strange, whispering phone calls from numbers she doesn’t recognise. Scratch marks on the door that she can’t explain.
And the growing feeling that she’s being watched . . .
Everyone is talking about Ghoster and when I heard about it I was intrigued to read more It’s narrated by the protagonist, Kate Collins and this gives the reader insight into how she is feeling, which brought me right into the action. She also lets us know what is going through her head as the action takes place and I enjoyed this aspect of the novel. As a character, I often found Kate quite frustrating, as she acts in ways I wouldn’t expect of someone who is otherwise intelligent. However I can forgive this as it keeps the story moving and gives us lots of tense moments!
The situation in which Kate finds herself is certainly very unsettling and Arnopp does an exceptional job of building the atmosphere. I was desperate to find out what had happened to Scott.
I don’t usually read books with a supernatural element, but Ghoster is written very well and the ghostly aspects of it add an extra layer which makes it incredibly intriguing.
Ghoster is available from Amazon.
