Publisher's Summary

Experience the paranormal like never before...

"The gateway is open."

These cryptic words wake college student Jess Ballard from a terrifying dream into an even more terrifying reality. Jess’ life has never been what anyone would call easy; doing damage control in the wake of your nomadic, alcoholic mother doesn't exactly make for a storybook childhood.

But now, her world has fallen apart just when it should be coming together: her mother gone—dead under mysterious circumstances; her life uprooted to stay with estranged relatives she’s never met; and there’s something odd about some of the people she’s been meeting at school: They’re dead.

Aided by Tia, her neurotic roommate, and Dr. David Pierce, a ghost-hunting professor, Jess must unravel the mystery behind her hauntings. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger shadows her every move. An ancient secret, long buried, is about to claw its way to the surface, and nothing can prepare Jess for one harrowing truth...her encounters with the world of the dead are only just beginning.

Spirit Legacy is the first installment in the thrilling paranormal series The World of the Gateway by E. E. Holmes.

My mistake

I purchased this book not realizing it was a young adult or even teen fiction. From that perspective, it was probably well written although predictable. The narrator is well suited to the young adult genre. Sadly, I am not viewing it from a young adult perspective so I found the book hard to stick to (since the purchase was my mistake, I felt obligated to complete it). Conversations were silly and narration annoying. So, maybe my rating of three stars is not fair, but it is what it is!
This book is very well suited for a teenager, and in their eyes I can understand a five star rating.

Many loose ends

I often enjoy teen and children’s books if they are well written and cohesive. And I enjoy sci-fi and fantasy. This is not one of those, however.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these stories! ♡

I agree with most that the narrator is good. Mastering those accents (so sorry, but yes all of them) would make you AMAZING! :-)

enjoyable

i enjoyed this and was a great concept...4 stars nearly 5. The ending dissapointed me though....terrible English accents...predictable....travel to England, for a school 'sassenach' did make me cringe. up and until then, it was a great story.

Loved it

Loved the story but not too sure about the narrator. I cannot understand why they feel the need to put on the awful voices
