Review: My Demonic Ghost by Jacinta Maree




My Demonic Ghost by Jacinta Maree
Bex's rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jacinta Maree offers the reader something that I truly love, Teenage Fiction filled with intrigue, passion and characters that are beautifully crafted and intrinsically developed. It was impossible not to be swept away by the tide of emotion and drama that poured off Jacinta Maree's wonderful pages.

As a harsh critique of dialogue, I was so very happy by the author's craft. Jacinta Maree created natural flowing dialogue that really helped to shape her characters and the wide variety of relationships evident in My Demonic Ghost. I believed her story, believed in her characters and believed, with out a doubt, that her fantasy world was real.

Jacinta Maree successfully created two main protagonists that I whole-heartedly cheered for. Both Rachael and Lock were movingly real; there were several moments that I felt a rush of pride at their actions, and deep sorrow as aspects of their lives and stories unfolded.

I was pleasantly surprised by the 'darkness' of Rachael and Lock's journey. So often, I feel misinformed by artwork and the book's synopsis. But this was most definitely not the case with My Demonic Ghost. The characters feel fear, witness horror and encounter horrendous characters. Jacinta Maree handles this very well, whilst all the time still staying true to the YA genre.



If you are looking for a moving and dark YA fantasy, with beautiful tender moments of love and compassion, then by sure to purchase yourself a copy of My Demonic Ghost.

Goodreads Synopsis
Rachael has traveled to Whitehaven to visit her father, a trek she can not help but dread given his recent descent into madness. Upon her arrival she realizes his deterioration has not only been mental, it’s been physical as well. His death comes as no surprise, but what she discovers soon after, is shocking when his burden becomes hers. Lock is a banished spirit who must attach himself to a human host in order to hide from those who would drag him back to hell to be destroyed. When he meets Rachael he finds more than a host, he finds an ally.

Together they must defeat each of the seven sins in order to guarantee Lock's safe passage into the Third Realm, a loophole in creation that would allow him to escape hell and have peace at long last. Through their unlikely friendship, other banished spirits flock to them in hopes of a peace they hadn't dreamt possible.
