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

Not As Good As The First…

I was REALLY looking forward to this second book in the series & found it disappointedly lacking in not only performance compared to the first but the writing as well.
Besides having a different narrator than the first book who seems to be quite new at the job, the story gives the impression that it’s almost written by someone else. In the first book of the Gateway series Jess is a freshman in college. But now in going across the pond her maturity has slipped to the level of a freshman in high school. Her mood swings are all over the place with her overreactions blowing things out of proportion in my opinion. It doesn’t help that those who run the school seem to look down on all of them treating them like 14 year olds. I mean these are supposed to be 18 & 19 year olds, women not girls! If the author wants to write it like that then it should have been done in the first book. I cringed every time Jess gets furious with Finn for what? I really don’t know. The same with how emotional she gets over a professor was a bit too weird.
The story line is really good & different. I think it’s very creative. I’m just very disappointed with the character development and the storyline didn’t feel like it went through the same standard of editing as the first book.
So I guess I’m saying if you liked the first book just a warning that you shouldn’t expect the same in the second.
Will I get the third book? Yes because it is a good storyline. I just hope it doesn’t seem so rushed & the author puts more faith in her characters as they should grow individually & closer to each other through all these experiences.

Sound Was Uneven

The sound level was uneven- I found myself having to turn the volume up and down frequently. At several times the recording sounded like it was done in a fishbowl. I feel as if this was a draft recording that never got finalized.

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.

Terrible narration

Having enjoyed the first book, I was keen to continue the story. It was sadly a little more juvenile in character than the first, but still engaging. The absolutely dreadful narration made it a challenge to continue however, with appalling efforts at English and I presume Scottish accents (the voice of Fiona) though who would actually know what accent that was meant to be? It was cringe worthily dreadful. If you can’t do an accurate accent, then perhaps don’t? !
I’m not sure if I will continue with the third book - narration is SO important. Does anyone actually monitor these characterisations?
Overall - an interesting concept/story, if you can bare the insulting attempts at British regional accents. Apparently we are either all very upper class, or Essex.
