When the ghost of a notorious killer possesses the body of an upper class youth, London’s preeminent medium, Emily Chambers, must exorcise it before the spirit goes on a rampage. As if this isn’t distraction enough, she must fight her feelings for brooding ghost, Jacob Beaufort, who doesn’t like the new man in her life-the handsome and very much alive, Theodore Hyde. With reputations and lives at stake, Emily discovers that navigating the poorest suburbs of London in search of the evil spirit is almost as dangerous as finding her way in a Society that thinks “freaks” like her belong in the circus.

The Medium (The Emily Chambers Spirit Medium Trilogy #1), by C. J. Archer

Publish Date: June 30, 2012 (audiobook published November 15, 2016)
Published by: Tantor Audio
Narrated by: Gemma Dawson
Length: approx. 9 1/2 hours
Genre: YA Paranormal/YA Romance
My Rating: ★★★★☆ (3.5 out of 5 stars)


Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old spirit medium Emily Chambers has a problem. Actually, she has several. As if seeing dead people isn’t a big enough social disadvantage, she also has to contend with an escaped demon and a handsome ghost with a secret past. And then there’s the question of her parentage. Being born an entire year after her father’s death (yes, a year) and without the pale skin of other respectable English ladies, Emily is as much a mystery as the dead boy assigned to her. Jacob Beaufort’s spirit has been unable to crossover since his death. It might have something to do with the fact he was murdered. Or it might not. All he knows is, he has been assigned by the Otherworld’s administrators to a girl named Emily. A girl who can see and touch him. A girl who released a shape-shifting demon into the mortal realm. Together they must send the demon back before it wreaks havoc on London. It should be a simple assignment, but they soon learn there’s nothing simple when a live girl and a dead boy fall in love.


My Review:

This was a fun audiobook to listen to. I really enjoyed the world-building and Emily was a wonderful protagonist. All of the other characters were well rounded as well. The pacing was good and easy to follow, with lots of intrigue and action all around. Continue reading “Book Review | THE MEDIUM, by C. J. Archer”
