Publisher's Summary

Two sisters, haunted by more than their past... 

Just weeks after discovering each other’s existence, Jess and Hannah Ballard arrive at Fairhaven Hall, where they will learn the clandestine ways of the Durupinen, an ancient sect of women who control the Gateways between the worlds of the living and the dead. Though they are considered outcasts by most of their classmates, Jess and Hannah are determined to learn what they can to fulfill their responsibility to the many ghosts that haunt them. But danger, it seems, has followed them as closely as a shadow to their new home, and they have more questions than ever. 

Who is the desperate child spirit pursuing Jess, and what do her terrifying visions mean? What has happened to Dr. David Pierce, Jess’ friend and mentor, who has suddenly and mysteriously vanished? And just what is it about Hannah’s unique abilities that has the other Durupinen frightened of her? 

The Ballard sisters are about to find out, and the answers could destroy their newfound life before it has even begun. Spirit Prophecy is the second thrilling audiobook installment in E.E. Holmes’ award-winning Gateway Trilogy.

Narration almost ruined the story.

I listened to the first book, in the series. I enjoyed the narration.
The narration, of this book, was very hard to listen and to stay focused on the story.
Many words were mispronounced. The accents and sounds for characters changed repeatedly. It was difficult to know what character was speaking.
I almost stopped the audio, to read it.

I liked the story.

Sometimes it was hard to hear the narration. I listen to audiobooks while I walk with Bluetooth speakers. At full volume it was hard to hear her.

Weird Accents

Loved this book but I preferred the actress who narrated the first book.
This girl makes weird accents and swallows spit so much that it would completely take me out of the story. Unfortunately she narrates the next book too :(

Didn't like as much....

I have read (listened) to all the EE Homes Gateway series books. Some sections listening to this one I felt like I was listening to the same book again, rather than a continuing story.

volume was all over the place

Great story. It ties everything together well, but the volume of the narrator kept getting really quiet. Even at full volume it was sometimes hard to hear. I get whispering when the narration calls for it, but regulating the volume would have been much appreciated.

Terrible narrator!

The narrator almost made me stop listening. She goes back and forth between accents and it’s often hard to tell who’s talking. If I were you I’d just read the book! I also don’t like Jess’s new personality this book. Overall it was pretty disappointing compared to the first book

I love this series

Yes, it is fiction. However it really holds your attention and engrosses you in the story. It moves quickly, while maintaining the integrity of the story.

Narration is unfortunate

The book is really good and engaging but unfortunately the narration is not. There are inappropriate pauses, pronunciations are wrong and change too much and inflection for emotions are off on occasion. I did not mind the accents at times but overall the performance was not good which is a shame because the book is a good one.

Good book.. change the narrator

I have found the story line great but ruined by the narrator attempting to do English & Scottish accents. I found it incredibly irritating & frustrating with the American version of what they think is a typical London accent & a disastrous Scottish accent. I'm not sure whether those two accents had been written phonetically for the narrator.. but its not working. Either just use an accent she can manage or use a different narrator who can do accents!

Not enjoyable

I found this book to be too drawn out and long winded. I enjoyed the 1st book but lost interest in the second.

An anti-climax

Instead of getting better with each book in the series, the quality is falling. These books have a lot of brilliant ideas but no substance to present them. There has been the avoidance of the attraction between 2 of the characters for a long time and when they actually get together is is very disappointing. Its like watching a tv show where things happen but you have no insight into how the characters have actually been feeling, no glances, no excitement. I would say the series would be okay for very young teens but not anyone older.

Great story, not a great recording.

The book is excellent. The further misadventures of two teens thrust into a world of spirits for which they are ill prepared.

The recording, unfortunately, lets it down, the sound quality changes palpably, sometimes mid sentence. I was obliged a couple of times to consult the book in order to understand a word. The volume dips here and there. The English accents are gamely attenpted, and are no worse than Spike and Druscilla on Buffy. It’s not enough to impede and understanding of the text, but it is distracting.
