    One thought on “Cold Shadows”

    1. 4.5 spooky stars from my 14-year-old the reluctant reader and meThis was another creepy listen/read with my son. once again Ellie and Stacey are summoned to a house to catch a ghost. I think the two of them work very well together, Ellie is a bit of a bad a**while Stacey is more of a bit of a scaredy-cat (this makes me feel a little better about myself). The backstory of the family doing the haunting of this house, was really well developed I was completely surprised as to why they were still ar [...]

    2. If it weren't for a couple of annoying things, it would be as good as the first. They are close, though.Another haunted house and harassed family and Ellie and her assistant Stacey are on the job. After reading it I must say that the main twist and explanations are pretty neat and interesting. After reading it. The thing is, it picks up speed in the second half of the story.I don't have many nitpicks, but the ones I do have were a bit distracting at times. How cluttered the house is and the reas [...]

    3. After a surprise love of the first book in the series, I didn't hesitate to pick up the second. And oh boy was this quite the read. Creepier, darker, and full of delicious paranormal woo hoo. Ellie once again manages to get herself in way over her head when it comes to the dark and creepy spirits that haunt the homes of those she visits and while this trait isn't a great one, it somehow works for the storyline. With darkness abound, danger around every creak and glowing orb, this was a fun seque [...]

    4. (I received a copy from the author, in exchange for an honest review.)Cold Shadows was another good read.I really liked Ellie and Stacey in this one, and i liked seeing Jacob again too. At first, i didn't think there was as many creepy moments as there was in book one, but the second half had loads of them. When the mystery of the family who was haunting the house was revealed, i was quite surprised. I didn't expect their story to end that way. Overall, A decent sequel. I'm looking forward to re [...]

    5. I’ve decided to pick back up this series and continue it. I read the first book and got hooked. Ever since, I wondered what new adventures awaited Ellie. Also, please note that due to pregnancy insomnia, I started this book late at night and could not stop reading it. Plus, I got a bit scared.Plot: This is about Ellie who is a paranormal investigator/ghost trapper. She reviews the cases and finds the ones that are truly real. I really enjoyed reading about Ellie. I think she is strong and pass [...]

    6. Four Stars: Another exciting and scary ghost adventure. Ellie and Stacey pull up to the old, dark mansion which appear to have a pond in the front yard. Stacey jokes that the pond is likely where the bodies will be hidden. Ellie and Stacey are on another ghost hunting adventure. Once they enter the house built back in 1841, they encounter several terrifying ghosts. It is up to Stacey and Ellie to find out who is behind the hauntings and eradicate them, but the truth ends up being more terrifying [...]

    7. I’m thoroughly enjoying this series! I was impressed with the first book, and Cold Shadows has me completely hooked. This is a quick read without feeling rushed, and it certainly isn’t slacking in quality.Ghosts can be total dicks. That’s what I’ve learned from this book. Especially when it involves children. I love that it doesn’t feel cartoony. Does that make sense? It feels realistic, and that actually plays a huge factor in the creepiness.I really enjoyed the mystery surrounding th [...]

    8. Cold Shadows is a great follow up to the first Ellie Jordan book. J.L. Bryan has created an interesting team in Ellie and Stacey Rae. Calvin and Jacob (and Grant) are solid peripheral characters (though I'm really hoping the romance thread doesn't continue too strongly in later books). Seriously, if the romance thing heads the way its already looking, I'll stop reading the series. Ergh. Anyways, the interaction and relationships between all the characters are believable and mostly enjoyable. I'd [...]

    9. It’s time for Ellie to get back to ghost trapping. She’s got a nasty new case. Looks like it might be a poltergeist.The family is experiencing loud noises, objects getting thrown around, toys playing by themselves.There is a young lady in the house and that’s usually where a poltergeist comes from. All that teen angst. And she’s got a lot of it. But their younger son is experiencing some odd things too. Imaginary friends that are causing him to slowly withdraw from the family.If it’s a [...]

    10. When I read the first book in the Ellie Jordan Series I was quite enamored and while I would love to tell you that book two was equally as impressive, I just cannot do so. While "Cold Shadows" was an interesting read it spent more time discussing the mechanics of ghost hunting and trapping and less time on the personalities of the characters. Although I enjoyed the ghost trapping Ellie's personal life was like watching paint dry: BORING!The ghost busting team of Ellie and Stacie go out to a old [...]

    11. This book was much more fast paced than the first and had me on the edge through the whole book. Reading it at night time I even thought I saw shadows moving. I can't wait to buy the next books in series.

    12. Cold Shadows is the second book in Ellie Jordan series, and it's taken a week or two for me to get around to reading it. Living in a haunted house has got to be creepy, right. How about living in a house with four ghosts. of them a possible poltergeist? Well this situation is Ellie and Stacey's next investigation, and it's one that starts off quickly.Cold Shadows was a quicker read than the previous book. I also notice a pattern with the housesey are all fabulous massive houses, which are my dre [...]

    13. I have to say that I've enjoyed everything J.L. Bryan has written (hoists the fangirl flag with a rousing cheer) and I'm REALLY digging on this new series. Ghosts, mayhem, quirky characters with intriguing back stories, and DANGER, ELLIE JORDAN! DANGER!One thing I'm enjoying is how the past ties in with the present. Ellie has to piece together what happened long ago to figure out how it ties in with her current case. She's working off historical documents and a goodly dose of intuition (although [...]

    14. Again, a very scary tale with real ghosts! My two quibbles are (1) I wish the book had been longer than 176 pages, because then (2) along with all of the scary action scenes there would have been space for new character developments. Mr. Bryan is a talented writer, and I'm enjoying the series very much. A little slower pace between hair-raising scenes would be a good thing, however. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    15. This is a great series so far! Each story has been well written, unique and intriguing Ellie and her buddy, Stacey, are a fun pair ~ mostly because they are so opposite. The ghosts in this one truly fit the picture of a dysfunctional family. :) I downloaded book 3 as soon as I finished this one perfect October creepy reads!

    16. Really enjoyed cold shadows!This is the 2nd book in the ghost trapper series and I definitely like them a lot. In fact I will probably be downloading the other two soon. I like the characters and the ghosts are always a little scary but not so scary I don't sleep for a week! What a fun series!

    17. Love these characters and I enjoy theirencounters! This one had me guessing as to the nature of the otherworldly antagonists, and I burned through it in two and a half hours, I couldn't put it down. I might have found a new favorite book series!

    18. Another great story in the Ellie Jordan series. I am really enjoying this series so far. Ghosts are my favorite form of paranormal reading. This book has it all for me. J L Bryan has also done her homework on knowing how the paranormal equipment Ellie uses works. Some books about ghosts the writer has very little clue on what the equipment is used for and how it is used. Ellie Jordan is a Ghost Trapper in Savannah Ga. Along with her partner Stacy they go into to haunted homes and relieve the hou [...]

    19. Second winner in the series! I thought this book was even more scary than the last. Lots of ghosts and spooky goings-on and, again, it wasn't just a chapter or two that was frightening. It was practically every one! I really like the way the author keeps the suspense and the chills coming. She's also is quite good at creating and conveying scenes that allow the reader to conjure up crystal clear mental pictures of what's happening which enhances the whole bone chilling experience. The Ellie Jord [...]

    20. So far, so good!I read the first Ellie Jordan book about a year ago,and I really enjoyed it but never picked up #2 until recently. It did not disappoint! Another great ghost story with believable, interesting characters!! If you've ever seen a ghost investigation show, you'll recognise a lot of the things Ellie uses in her investigations- I enjoy the realistic touches (you know, instead of her having some specialty equipment that doesn't seem like it should work). I would definitely recommend th [...]

    21. Ellie and Stacy are off on another ghostly adventure! This time it might be more than they can handle when they discover several ghosts causing a disturbance. Is Juniper the one creating the poltergeist, or is it the young boy Crane? How was Isaiah killed and who was responsible for his death? These ghost hunters will have to deal with several bumps in the night before they find out.

    22. I gave this ghost tale 3 stars, as I enjoyed it but found it a little formulaic after also reading the first book in the series.The story was good, but I was disappointed that the twist in the haunting was very similar to that in the first novel.We'll see how No.3 pans out as I have just started that one.No problem with it as a stand alone novel however.

    23. Absolutely loving this series. Only started this book yesterday. Tho slightly shorter then Book one it was gripping nonetheless. Enjoyable. Spooky and full of action and ghosts. Fantastically written and I've just downloaded book three which I'm about to start.

    24. Haunted HouseI really loved this story, it was full of ghosts poltergeists and a family in serious trouble. The heroine was a cross between a brave woman and a scared girl.I recommend this story without reservation.

    25. Great!I was not disappointed! It was another great Ellie Jordan book! More amazing characters and plot! Loved the twists and turns and not being able to know what the end will be like! Definitely a must read series!

    26. Scaryunable to read it at night!Much more tension than first book in series. The first half, I was able to find good places to stop. Last half, I couldn't put it down. The characters and their equipment are familiar and likeable enough. Good story, quick read.

    27. Loved that the story picked up right where the first book left off and kept on running. Another five star read for me! :)

    28. It was a solid ghost story that didn’t get dragged out longer than it should. Not a lot of main character development but the story itself was the main focus. Some nice twists, too.
