Magel's Ghost by Nancy Baker

Brilliant!

This book is the sequel to Magel's Daughter.  In the first book, we meet Karin Olina and her Norwegian family.  Karin is plagued by the ghosts of her ancestors, but is she crazy or blessed with a sight most of us don't have?  In Magel's Ghost, we take up about a year after the ending of the last book.  Karin is causing trouble and it's up to her cousin, Marit, to put a stop to it. 

This just doesn't even begin to cover what's happening!  Nancy is a genius!  This is one seriously disturbed family.  The way that Nancy writes it, I still can't tell if they're all crazy from inbreeding or if they're the only sane ones on the planet.  This was a captivating, fascinating read that I couldn't put down.  I even devoured the sex scenes!  For those of you who read my reviews, you know that's unusual!  Each one is important to the plot and executed in such a way as to add to the story instead of pulling the reader on an erotic side road. 

If you're faint of heart and can't handle gruesome events, you might want to be careful.  Though everything is executed with clinical accuracy, i think it would be a bit much for some people to handle.  As for me, I can't get enough!  I was enthralled with the knowledge contained in this book.  Though I'd never do these things myself, I found myself wondering if that would really work and being impressed by the cleverness of the characters as well as the writer. 

This book has everything!  Humor, romance, intrigue and a healthy dose of the unimaginable will keep you suspended through page after page.  For those of you who can't drive by a train wreck without craning your neck, this is a definite must read!  This is your chance to see the very essence of evil in the human soul from the safety of your own living room.
