Spirits Rising by Krista D. Ball

It's October, just two weeks from Halloween, and there is nothing like a good haunting to nudge me off balance.  That is exactly what Krista Ball did in her novella Spirits Rising.

Rachel has just returned from a month long visit to sunny Mexico, but sitting in her neighbour's kitchen in Northern Newfoundland, she feels ill at ease.  It's not 93 year old Mrs. Saunders, but the spirits from the other world beyond that call to her.  Ever since she was little, Rachel could hear these spirits , and today they are especially active.

Ms. Ball has everything needed in this short novella to get your heart pumping, and your imagination flowing: a handsome Mountie, Vikings, rampaging Indians and true believers.   The use of the east coast  vernacular had me feeling as though I really was sitting at the table listening to a bunch of newfies.  Well worth the read.

The second book in the series, Dark Whispers, is now available.

Thanks to author Krista Ball  for use of the cover image.

Spirits Rising is currently available free of charge at

ps. if you do go to to download a copy of the book, please click that my review was helpful (if you don't mind).  Thanks.
