Review Tour and Giveaway: The Ghost Hunter's Daughter by Caroline Flarity

The Ghost Hunter's Daughter
by Caroline Flarity


GENRE:   YA Supernatural/Paranormal



Sixteen-year-old Anna sees things from another world, the spiritual world, a skill that isn’t exactly useful in high school. It’s bad enough that her mother, possessed by a demon, took her own life when Anna was a child, a loss she remains tortured by. Now her father makes his living “clearing” haunted objects, and Anna’s job as his assistant makes her a social misfit. Most kids in her suburban New Jersey town refer to her just as “Goblin Girl.”

Only Freddy and Dor remain loyal friends. But Anna’s so focused on her own problems, she’s missed that her connection with Freddy is moving beyond the friend zone.

As junior year approaches, a rare solar storm lights up the night skies and the citizens of Bloomtown begin to act strangely: Anna’s teachers lash out, her best friends withdraw, and the school bullies go from mean to murderous. When Anna realizes she can harness this evil power, she sets out to save Bloomtown and the only family she has left.

But to do so, she must keep her own increasingly dark urges at bay.



Anna continued the staring contest with herself until the current of connection became so strong that she couldn’t look away from the mirror even if she wanted to. And then the details of the yellow flecks around her pupil—the golden starbursts in the hazel of her irises—suddenly grew sharper in the glass, crystallizing. Every muscle in her body tightened. Something was going to happen.

At first Anna thought she was shaking with fear, and then she was sure that a bee had flown into her mouth. Her jaw clenched instinctually, biting down. She braced for the soft crunch and searing sting that was sure to follow, but her teeth met without resistance. There wasn’t a bee, but her teeth continued to rattle as an electric thrumming spread throughout her body. Was this another portal attack? Anna wasn’t sure, but it was a vastly different sensation from the river rage—a much faster and higher-pitched vibration. She waited with dread for the shaking to slow and deepen, for the waves of hatred and misery to roll through her. But the vibration inside her increased in tempo, intensity and pressure.

It was like being in an airplane right before the wheels lifted off the ground—all that power. She was vibrating at a body-numbing, incredibly high rate, but was somehow still at the same time, like a tuning fork. It had been a mistake to try this in her room. What if the mirror gazing had opened her up even more to the destructive power of the portal spew? There was something familiar about it, the growing roar in her ears, but she braced herself and resisted with all her strength. No.

  1. Thank you so much for taking time to bring to our attention another great read. I appreciate it and thank you also for the giveaway.

    1. Hi James,
      Hope you and your girls are enjoying the end of summer. Thanks for your continued support. It's wonderful that you encourage your family to read. My book is YA horror for older teens, so it's not for everyone. But if you ever read it, I'd love to know what you think. I recently went wide with the ebook distribution. The Ghost Hunter's Daughter is now available pretty much everywhere ebooks are sold. Hope to 'see' you again when I publish another book. As always, good luck in the giveaway! Bye for now :)

  2. Thanks so much for hosting and good luck in the giveaway to you and your readers! Today is the very last day of my blog tour that started in late May. It's been such a pleasure interacting with readers and bloggers. I especially appreciate the regular commenters who posted throughout the entire tour - thank you for never letting me show up to an "empty room". :) Today the tour has FOUR stops, so I probably won't be able to respond to every comment on each stop (all under the watchful eye of my boss). But I did want to say thank you again to everyone who participated. I hope the fall brings you lots of great books to read and prizes to win. A couple of updates about The Ghost Hunter's Daughter. The ebook is now widely available and readers should be able to find it at their vendor of choice. Also, the book is now classified as YA HORROR for older teens (based on reader feedback on NetGalley and Goodreads). I previously described it as a dark, YA paranormal mystery for older teens.

  3. I've thoroughly enjoyed following the tour for The Ghost Hunter's Daughter and I am looking forward to reading it. Thanks for sharing all of the great posts along the way :)

    1. Victoria! I'm going to miss you :) I can't believe today is the very last day of my blog tour. Wednesdays just won't be the same! Good luck in the giveaway and hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. I hope you enjoy the book (fingers crossed) ;) All the best, Caroline
