  • Creepy Paranormal YA Read

    Teenager Harriet Stoker enters the abandoned building of Mulcture Hall to take some photos for her university project. She has heard rumours that the place is haunted after numerous students died there a few years ago but it will take more than a few ghosts to stop her from getting the perfect shot. Unfortunately for Harriet whilst leaning from the upstairs balcony she falls and dies on impact and re-awakens to a world of ghosts and realises she has become one. She wants to get home to her Grandmother who she lives with and takes care of since her parents died, but she soon finds out that she can’t leave the grounds of Mulcture Hall as the ghosts have to stay where they died or they disintegrate and no-one knows what that means, or where they go when that happens. She finds herself surrounded by lots of other ghosts including teenagers Kasper, Felix, Rima, and Leah. She is also informed that when you die you each are given special magical powers. Harriet isn’t going to play by the rules though. But just how far is she willing to go to get what she wants and who is she willing to hurt in the process? The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker is an intriguing take on the afterlife. Author Lauren James has done a fabulous job of making the afterlife sounds so sinister, I mean dying is bad enough but then once your energy runs out you kind of look like you are in a ghost coma and you have to wait for someone else to die to then reawaken you again as you take part of their energy. The book is told from multiple POV which isn’t my favourite kind of read but the sections from the characters other than Harriet were only quite short in comparison to hers, plus you always knew who was talking. As well as the characters we also have a narrator – possibly death, who had seen Harriet die many years before she did and knew that she was a force to be reckoned with. The book is filled with supernatural elements, a good vs evil feel, and at times horror. Harriet by no means is a likeable character, she is selfish, self-centred, and bitter but she has been dealt a very cruel life and you can kind of understand where she is coming from. This would make a great read for these early dark nights and for Halloween too. It’s engaging and will give you a lot to think about.

    Thanks for your feedback!
