Synopsis: A Ghost Rider in the Sky? What happened here, on a historic ranch outside Nashville, during the Civil War? And what’s happening now?
Olivia Gordon works at the Horse Farm, a facility that assists patients with mental and physical recovery; her specialty is animal therapy. She’s always loved her job, always felt safe…until now.
People are dying, starting with the facility’s founder, whose body is discovered in a ravine on the property-site of a massacre in 1862. And before every death, Liv sees a horse and rider, wearing a soldier’s garb, in the night sky…. Warning? Omen? Or clue?
Liv calls in her cousin Malachi and his Krewe, an FBI unit of paranormal investigators, to discover the truth. New Krewe member Dustin Blake knows they need Liv’s involvement in the case, yet he’s worried about her safety. Because he and Liv quickly become more than colleagues…and he doesn’t want to lose her to the endless night
Personal Thoughts: The Night is Forever was an entertaining read featuring lots of lovely ghosts. Olivia Gordon finds her boss one day face down injected with heroin and stone cold dead. She knows that it is impossible for him to have relapsed when his true passion was the Horse Farm. She soon calls up her cousin who works for the FBI and the Krewe of Hunters, a special task force that is able to communicate with the dead.
Her cousin Malachi enlists the help of Dustin Blake, the newest member of the Krewe. With his help, Olivia starts to see that the accidents that have been happening all around them are not actual accidents. The Night is Forever is packed with a lot of history, ghostly appearances and hints of romance that add to the story. This is a truly great read and will keep you on the edge of your toes.
Dustin and Olivia make a great team and I felt that their characters were well developed, along with the secondary characters. There were no parts that were rushed, and the details that were written when talking about the history of the area gave me a clear picture of what it was like during that time.
