Book Synopsis: Did you ever wish you could escape to a virtual world? What if you could...but then couldn’t get out?
Two years after her deadly clash with a vengeful ghost, Fiona “Blue” Shaefer still can’t shake off the trauma of that night. Moving to New York with her father didn’t help. Neither did absorbing herself in her college classes. Not even her poetry provided the solace it once did. She convinces herself that ending her relationship with Eugene “Chip” Farren, her long-distance boyfriend and final tie to the horrors of that night, might bring the closure she needs. Blue travels to Bloomington to break the news to Chip in person, but her timing couldn’t be any worse.
The Sisters of Baalina, vengeful cultists who practice a new form of “techno-magic,” have targeted Chip’s multi-player videogame as the perfect environment to cast a dangerous spell to free a demoness from the very pits of hell. In the process, their plan may trap Blue in a prison of the mind with no locks, no bars, and no escape.
RJ Sullivan is a pretty new to me author, I read Haunting Obsession last year and instantly loved Mr. Sullivan's voice and storytelling. He makes amazing complex, detailed, rich characters. That is something I truly love in a story. I fangirled over Rebecca in Haunting Obsession but I am crushing in Blue. She is smart, clever, all round awesome punk girl. I was amazed at all that was going on in this book. Ghosts, Long distance relationships, supernatural forces and virtual worlds. This book is for gamers, fantasy, paranormal lovers. This is book two in the Blue Series but it was easy to follow with out reading book one. (Though I can not wait to read book one now.) I highly recommend this book.
5 out of 5. :)
This book also has a cover and art by one of my favorite artists, Bonnie Wasson.
Seventh Star never ceases to amaze me on the quality of their authors and art.
