Description

There's the ruler of Hell and the Big Guy Upstairs. Neither have time for those souls who can't move on from actual life. These spirits, or ghosts, need someone to help. That's Ridge Cooper's job. An immortal to watch over the realm of the in between, enforcing the law with tattoos he can pull corporeal weapons from. His realm is in danger, though. Ghosts are going missing, so he looks for answers within the Organization of Supernatural Exterminators, hunters. Mistaken for a trainee, he enrolls in pursuit of answers. Will he be able to find out what's going on in time?...“Will you talk to me?” I asked when I had its attention. It snarled while crawling towards me agonizingly slow, the already broken fingernails doing little to make the process easier.“Tell me your name.” I commanded in Latin. All ghosts understood it like they had the language injected into them after they passed. I held power when I spoke Latin. Ghosts had to obey, but I never appreciated being forced into giving orders. The best guess I had was that when and where I was created had Latin as the predominant language.The body of the vampire jerked, causing spittle to fly out of its mouth and plop onto the floor. “Eamon,” it rasped. The vamp collapsed from attempting to resist my orders, face landing in the spit. Just another substance to go with the dirt and the blood smeared across its cheek.“Good, now explain to me your reasoning for taking over a living being, pushing their consciousness into the back of their own head. Tell me how you could ignore the warnings that you would go insane with blood lust. Tell me!” I was shouting by this time.Eamon shuddered again. “I needed… I needed…”“Needed what?” I gripped the bars of the cell, knuckles turning white.“To feel again,” he breathed heavily for a moment. Rasp in, rasp out. I waited. “To know that I was alive.”“You’re not alive.” With that, I rolled up my sleeves.show more
