Ok, so the first thing I'll have to admit to is not reading the first book. I didn't mean to, I didn't realise until I was reading it. This may be the main reason I didn't like it at all.
I really like the Author's other books but this one really didn't do anything for me at all.I think the main reason I didn't like it was that it was incredibly short, cliche and cheesy. I'm really not into all that cheesy stuff at all but if you are you might like it.
This book was so short, I felt like it was over before it had had a chance to begin. This is quite an easy read.
I also think that this book is aimed at a younger audience than me, maybe ten-twelve.
My biggest advice is to read the first book first, you may enjoy it more than I did. ( )

This book is a little mature for elementary students, but a great read. I love the character Riley, she seems to be very similar to kids today. Very mature, but still has the innocence of a child.

The book was very educational and would be a great conversation piece. I highly recommend reading it.. ( )

Liked: Doesn't talk down about emotions involved in death and dying. short and easy to digest.
Disliked: Some of the story got a little preachy for my taste.

The second in the series & it was as delightful as the first. This is an easy read & an insightful look into the mind of Riley.

Riley is on vacation and decides to take matters into her own hands when she is confronted by a huge Hell Beast (dog). She figures if she can "convince" a troubled soul to move on another won't be too hard. But she is in for a big shock. What she discovers is not just one soul but over a hundred. Riley is matched against a 13 year old girl, Rebecca, whose anger has turned into hell. Riley has no choice now but to help rescue them all.

This is another great adventure for Riley and she also gets to learn a thing or two about her guide, Bhodi. She also learns some things about herself.

I wish there would be a romantic relationship between Bodhi and Riley. This book was pointless. It was just another one of Riley's SHORT adventures. ( )

Having solved the matter of the Radiant Boy, Riley, Buttercup, and Bodhi are enjoying a well-deserved vacation. When Riley comes across a vicious black dog, against Bodhi’s advice, she decides to cross him over. While following the dog, she runs into a young ghost named Rebecca. Despite Rebecca’s sweet appearance, Riley soon learns she’s not at all what she seems. As the daughter of a former plantation owner, she is furious about being murdered during a slave revolt in 1733. Mired in her own anger, Rebecca is lashing out by keeping the ghosts who died along with her trapped in their worst memories. Can Riley help Rebecca forgive and forget without losing herself to her own nightmarish memories?
