    1. ~3.75~ Spirits, people. They're REAL. Sometimes they seek revenge or inhabit your dreams. They wear bowler hats and drag you back from the dead. Or to the light.This is a hauntingly good collection of novellas. I enjoyed all the stories, although the stadouts were Dei ex Machina by Kim Fielding and The Mill by Jamie Fessenden.Individual story reviews to come when I recover from GRL. Drinking and fangirling take a lot of energy, yo.Individual story reviews below:The MillJamie Fessenden~4~This is [...]

    2. My review is only for Among the Dead by Eli Easton.I generally don’t like ghost stories (too creepy) but I read this one anyway because it’s an Eli Easton story. But from now on I guess I’m not going to risk (at least for a while) to read a story with ghosts even if it is written by a favorite author of mine. After an accident, Neil Gaven sees dead people. It makes his life incredibly difficult, as ghosts always try to interact with him, which Neil definitely doesn’t want to. So he hardl [...]

    3. BR with Mishyjo!The first half of the anthology was very good, the second half not so much. I'll take the middle route and give it 3 stars. Ghosts aren't my favourite on the paranormal spectrum, so I'm not surprised that this has been my lowest rating for the Gothika anthology series.However, if you're a fan of MM romance and ghosts, this anthology will be right up your alley.'The Mill' by Jamie FessendenDate read: Nov. 7, 2015Rating: 4 starsFrank Carter and his paranormal investigator team are [...]

    4. I only read 3 out of the 4 stories in this anthology, but they were all SO good! It’s rare for me to have so many 4 star reviews in an anthology, they usually average out at about a 3 star, but these were just all wonderful. Different and complex and kinda dark and romantic. I’d for sure recommend this, and I don’t think it needs to be limited to a Halloween read!The Mill by Jamie Fessenden - 4 stars Fuuuuck yeah Jamie Fessenden! Fuck yeah. This was a great combination of ghost story and r [...]

    5. "Spirit" is almost out! Just in time for Halloween. This volume is about ghosts, obviously. My story, "Among the Dead", started from a one line idea I had in my 'idea file' word doc. The line was "A guy sees dead people". I've always been a fan of horror and paranormal stories, and I love a good haunted house or ghost story. I hope you all enjoy "Among The Dead" and the other awesome stories in this volume. You can read an excerpt from my story here:elieaston/among-the-dead-f

    6. I am having such a wonderful time with this series. Who wouldn't have fun in the company of such great authors? This time around we've got 4 novella-length stories with ghosts. Mine takes place in Split, Croatia, where a Roman emperor built a palace 1700 years ago. People still live in that palace today. I figured a place like that is bound to have a few ghosts floating around. And if one of those ghosts has been around since Emperor Diocletian's time? Well, the poor guy is bound to be feeling p [...]

    7. The Mill by Jamie Fessenden - I think the author should expand this story into a paranormal series, the MCs are great together 4.5Dei ex Machina Kim Fielding - 3.5 Among the Dead Eli Easton - 3.5 Unfinished Business B.G. Thomas - 3

    8. I have always loved these anthologies in the 'Gothika' series, so I was looking forward to what these four authors would bring me in this newest installment. Each of the previous books has dealt with a different aspect of the paranormal, and 'Spirit' is no different. I knew, before even starting to read, that Jamie Fessenden, B.G. Thomas, Kim Fielding, and Eli Easton would blow me away.The Mill by Jamie FessendenThe instant I started reading Jamie's contribution to this anthology, all I could th [...]

    9. Among the Dead by Eli EastonIn Among the Dead, Neil Gaven sees dead people. A gentle ghost guides him to Trist, who needs his help. But Trist is tormented by spirits, so maybe together they can find a way to live among the dead.**This is a lovely and sweet story with a little twist. Eli Easton’s writing is smooth and flawless and her characters are rich and full. I loved the attention to details with the subtle blurring that at first causes confusion then clarity as the story draws to its fina [...]

    10. This review was originally wrotten for Joyfully Jay REviews and can be accessed here: joyfullyjay/2015/11/review4.25 stars for the whole collection.This is an anthology of four long novellas that have nothing in common excepting themes of the supernatural. They are varied in content and scope, some being more paranormal romance and some being more horror. Because they are all standalones, I’m going to talk about each of them on their own.The Mill by Jamie Fessenden is a classic ghost story, wi [...]

    11. The Mill by Jamie Fessenden~ Rating: 5 Stars So I made the mistake of reading this after dark, alone and now I am seriously freaked out lol. This story was so scary at the same time so sad when you find out what really happened to these poor souls. I loved Frank and Toby together. You get your scary ghosts that go bump in the night in this story. You also meet different characters like Frank's brother and the rest of his team plus a few other characters. So I will leave this review with I loved [...]

    12. After reading this part of my favorite anthology series I suppose it's true what they say about ghost stories: there are not much variations on that topic and it doesn't mix easily with romance or maybe my expectation after haveing read the previous parts was just too high. The Mill A Haunted House story with just the right setup and I liked that it wasn't about some creepy mansion but a closed mill and that a fire like the one that started the haunting has a real historical background made it a [...]

    13. The only reason this is getting a 4.5 stars is Jamie Fessenden & B.G. Thomas wrote some pretty awesome ghost stories. Sorry, even though I love the other two authors, their stories were 3's.Loved The Mill by Jamie and would love to see some more ghost hunter stories by him. As for B.G love Unfinished Business, the ending was not what I expected.You guys rock when it comes to spookies!These stories immediately suck me in and I had a tough time putting them down once I started reading them. Go [...]

    14. 4.5 Heart Series Review by VickiThe Mill by Jamie FessendenOh… this is a nice spooky story. Frank and his crew are paranormal investigators, hired to look in to possible hauntings in an old abandoned mill in Hawley Maine. The current owner of the mill wants to know if it can be torn down, or remodeled. After a rough start for C-Troop Paranormal, and an injury to Louis, Frank’s younger brother and fellow investigator, Mrs. Hawley bring in her own personal psychic, Toby. Now Toby is the real t [...]

    15. I've been eagerly awaiting this fourth installment in the Gothika series; it's the only anthologies where I have not been at least a little disappointed at at least one of the stories incorporated in an anthology. "Spirit" is no different than my previous experiences with the Gothika collections - it's yet another wonderful and a bit creepy anthology.The common theme for this part are ghosts, and ghosts we get, in a few different flavors, all of which I very much enjoyed. I read them all in orde [...]

    16. I'm a sucker for ghost stories, I've been since my childhood. I've read so many ghost stories over the years (and don't let me start with ghost movies), but only a very few - maybe two or three - gave me what I was searching for: unease, mounting tension, genuine fear.So, here's a warning: now I'm a little stern when it comes to rate this kind of stories.The Mill, by Jamie Fessenden - 3 starsFor me, this story was in part a missed opportunity, because the elements to build up a very scary story [...]

    17. A Joyfully Jay review. 4.25 starsThis is an anthology of four long novellas that have nothing in common excepting themes of the supernatural. They are varied in content and scope, some being more paranormal romance and some being more horror. Because they are all standalones, I’m going to talk about each of them on their own.On the whole, this anthology is really engaging and has a lot to be enjoyed. Some horror, some suspense, some sexytimes and some redemption. I would recommend to anyone wh [...]

    18. I love them all!! The first story was super creepy, but I couldn't put it down. I was fascinated by the history and the mix of science and supernatural in the story. It would be great if this story were turned to be series. The second story was much lighter than the first one. And although it was implausible, I was glad of the happy ending. The third story was surprising. I did not see that plot twist! It's happy but kind of sad too. At least those two finally got together.I think the fourth sto [...]

    19. 3.5 stars, bumped up to 4 for the first story (which was my favorite!) The other three stories were entertaining, but didn't take me in like the first one. Still a pretty decent read and perfect for Halloween. :)
