I am never alone. Not even when I am alone.

I see the unquiet dead, the souls that wander through the French Quarter.

They can’t move on, and I can’t stop seeing them.

I wear malachite for protection, and I control what I let in. It’s the only way to stay sane. Everything changes the day Cassian Winslow joins my ghost walking tour and knocks my world off its axis with green eyes the color of the stone around my neck.

An unspeakable evil is loose in New Orleans, taking young women and leaving a bloodbath in his wake. More shadows lurking for me. More unhappy dead. There might be a way to stop it.

Open myself up to Cassian.

If I do, it could spell his death.

But if I don’t, it’s mine.


Wow, what an amazing story.  This is Kristen Proby’s first full attempt at a paranormal romance and she hits it out of the park.  If you’ve read Easy Magic she’s dabbled in a little of the unknown, but in this book we are immersed in it.  On a side note a few of the characters from Easy Magic do make an appearance in this book.

In this book you get paranormal, romance, and a suspense mystery all wrapped in one.  There are spirits, witches (both good and dark),  psychics, and magic.  The plot is creepy and dark and has moments of macabre.  You also have a story of sisters who stick together, of women who know who they are and aren’t shy about it, of people who are open-minded and accepting.  This book will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat and turning the page because you can’t wait to read what happens next.  You will be anxiously awaiting the next book in this series.  I know I am.

Not to forget, this is also a romance.  There is an insta-connection happening with this couple.  Both of these characters are very endearing, separately and as a couple.  The world that is created is captivating.  I’ve been to New Orleans several times and this just makes me want to go back. Even though it’s a different genre than this author typically writes, it still feels like a Kristen Proby book.  If you’ve never read a paranormal or a thriller I encourage you to take a step out of your comfort zone and give this book a try.

About Kristen Proby

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.
