The Spirits of Saoradh, who carry the guilt of a crime they committed when they were alive, now spend their ghostly days in the Void, dark nothingness where time and space are distorted. Until they get bound to a human. As often as needed, that human can call them to the real world, ask them to grant a wish, then send them back to the Void. The Spirits also have to follow strict rules or be punished, unaware that they can earn their redemption through a selfless sacrifice.

Spirit Logan despises the obedience he has to show to his humans, and prefers the enjoyable solitude of the Void. For three years, he has managed to threaten them into severing their bond, thus having his memory wiped of their existence. Except his latest human, an emotionless woman with a secret past, isn’t scared of him. Worse, she doesn’t care about his ability to make wishes come true.
Tessa, a twenty-six-year-old nursery teacher in Fort William, Scotland, doesn’t expect a sullen ghost only she can see and touch to burst through her solid defences. Both dismayed and intrigued, she offers Logan a deal he can’t refuse: to live with her in the human world for one week, at the end of which she will agree to release him.
Slowly, Tessa braves through the safety of her detachment towards people to show Logan some kindness. But the more her feelings deepen, the more Logan increases his distance…

***Cassandra – #NerdGirlLola’s  Review***
This is the second installment in the Spirits of Saoradh series. In this book we meet Logan, a Spirit who has no need for his human counterparts. So much so that he always finds a way to sever their bond, until he meets Tessa. Tessa is his current human and she is completely different than any of his previous ones, she doesn’t want anything to do with him, initially. This leads to some very awkward encounters between the two.

I absolutely loved this book for multiple reasons. One, it felt darker than the first book. I love a dark read and this one was riding that fine line. I think this is mostly due to both of their back stories. There were quite a few points in the book that got very intense. I was literally biting my fingernails and that’s a good thing in my book.

Another reason I really enjoyed the book is we got to find out more about the Judge, the Punisher, and the one being behind this whole thing. I can’t go in to detail but let’s just say my eyes were opened to a whole new side of their story. I truly hope the series continues and we get a whole book on them.

As with the first book the writing was excellent and engaging. The characters are well written and relatable. I fell completely in love with Logan and his Lone Wolf demeanor.

Overall I think is a superb read. I can’t wait for the next book to come out. I would definitely recommend this series to all lovers of PNR.
