Let me start by saying "Yes, I am biased on this one. I love Rhys Ford. Her books are like catnip for me. I just want to curl up in a ball and savor them and then roll in them to make sure I got it all...catnip!
'Fish and Ghost' is the first book in Rhys Ford's 'Hellsinger' series. Ghost aren't a deal breaker for me but neither are they on my list of things I like to read. I decided I was going to take a chance on this one because of the author and I am so glad I did. I love Tristan and Wolf. They're so different in so many ways...how they look, how they grew up, what they believe, their personalities and yet, they work, they fit together and they have their strong attraction and ghost in common, granted an odd combination but it works.
There were so many fun and interesting secondary characters in this story both living and ghostly.For the most part I liked the ghost they were interesting. Especially Jack...see that red ball there whatever you do don't pick it up and throw it because then you'll never get rid of him and that's all I'm saying about Jack for now.
This was a ghost story with an interesting and slightly different twist to it and watching Tristan and Wolf navigate their way to a relationship amidst the turmoil of ghost and interfering family (on both sides) was believe it or not fun. I'm definitely looking forward to book #2, Duck, Duck, Ghost!
Oh damn there goes Jack...who threw that ball? I told you not to do it...oh well, he's your problem now..."Jack put that ball down that's not yours, it
belongs to Boris...
Ghost, old homes, sexy men, meddling family and dogs all wrapped up in a fascinating story and decorated with a good dose of humor and maybe a shot or two of whiskey just for good measure. Who could resist? Certainly not I.
