In the aftermath of a brutal tragedy, Jason and Passion are on the run. Marcus is lost beyond reach, and The Hold is in shambles. If that weren't enough, Olivia Black has been taken by the CAMFers to be used as Dr. Fineman's personal lab rat in his merciless quest to uncover the mysteries of Psyche Sans Soma once and for all. But only if he can break her.
They are scattered.
They are devastated.
They are ruined.
Their only hope is Olivia's stubborn determination to thwart her captors and unlock the secrets of her ghost hand before Dr. Fineman can. Will she finally find the strength within herself to embrace the full power of her PSS?
And will it even matter if Marcus has already betrayed her?
At A Glance
I’m still interested in the series but this felt like a filler book.
I started this series awhile back and have really enjoyed the concept and series arc so far. Ghost Heart picks up immediately after Ghost Hold. Olivia is captured by the CAMFers and the rest of the group is either dead or running for their lives.
I loved how we got three different POVs this time around. Passion had a great voice. She was strong and curious. Marcus has lost his memory of the last 8 months, so all he could do was play catch up to the whole situation. Olivia was in hell as the experiments started right away. I still love her character the most. She has this verve that keeps her going and keeps you reading. She goes through so much pain and manipulation, but she still maintained optimistic that she would get out from under the CAMFers hands.
There were a lot of secrets revealed which left me shocked and filled with more questions. The twist and turns really helped the story along. I like the new character at the end. That person is going to make things interesting for book #4.
Nothing really happens in this book. It was very slow, unlike the fast pace in the other books. There was a lot of waiting around, and that’s it. It was a good transition for the next book, but Ghost Heart didn’t have enough going on to be a book by itself.
By the end, I was left with more questions than answers. I am getting tired of the characters knowing people are lying or holding back info but not confronting them on it. It’s costing people their lives. Grow a pair and start demanding answers!!!
It ends right when things are starting to get interesting.
The romance is almost nonexistent, but this story doesn’t need it.
I will be reading book 4 when it comes out. I can’t help but be obsessed with these characters and their stories. Though Ghost Heart fell flat in a lot of areas, it still kept me reading. Recommended.
Dr. Fineman picked up the knife, turning it in his hands. Then he lowered it gently, setting it in my open palm, handle-first.
I was never willingly going to do what they wanted me to. They were going to have to force my hand every inch of the way.
Anthony squeezed my wrist even harder as Dr. Fineman closed my fingers around the knife.
Suddenly, I was standing at the door, huge and looming, looking at the pitiful, bloody, minus girl. No, at me. I was looking at me.
“She’s in my fucking head,” I—he—Major Tom said, stumbling back toward the door. “I can feel her there. I can feel where she is.”
“Hold your ground,” Dr. Fineman barked at me—no, him. I wasn’t him.—and I held steady at the door, remembering my training and honoring my rank. This little bitch wasn’t going to embarrass me a second time.
What the fuck? That hadn’t been my thought. It had been his thought in my head.
I looked down at the knife in my hand and tried desperately to unclench my fingers, but Dr. Fineman squeezed them even harder around it.
