The bigger they are, the harder they maul. Immortal not-ghost Wes Cooper and his vampire partner, Hudson Rojas, have it all--rewarding private investigation work, great friends and, most important, a love that's endured. But ever since Wes sent a demon screaming back to the beyond, his abilities have grown overpowering and overwhelming. He's hiding the fact that he's losing control the best he can, but it's hard to keep anything a secret for long when your partner's a former cop...and especially when your partner's a former cop who wants to move in together. When all hell literally breaks loose in Toronto and superstrength ghosts are unleashed on Wes and his friends, he and Hudson are thrown into a case unlike any they've seen before. To save the city, Wes needs to harness his new power...and find some answers. But when he gets them, the solution to fix it all could mean losing everything. One-click with confidence.

Very enjoyable second book of a trilogy about a quasi-ghost named Wesley, brought back by a witch 101 years ago after her brother (Wesley's love) murders Wesley. This is something you really need to read after the first book. I love Wesley, Hudson and their whole found family. The dynamics between them are so sweet. Wesley is certainly the god of bad decisions, but he's always trying to make the right ones.

I'm looking forward the the third, and final, book of this series. ( )

Everything I said about Not Dead Yet can be said for Give Up the Ghost too. The only reason it took me a bit longer to read it is that I realized I'm not a big fan of lying (at least not about really big, important stuff) and the first part of the book is all about Wes doing just that (and being an idiot). But, all's well that ends well and that's all that mattered in the end. I'm so happy to have found this series! ( )

You really need to have read the first book in this series before tackling this one.
This picks up a couple of months after the first ended. Wes is keeping secrets that threatens to destroy all his relationships and puts the lives and livelihoods of friends and acquaintances in danger.

It's told all from Wes' POV and if you've read the first book you'll know Wes doesn't always make the best decisions.

In this book the ghost story held up really well, and while the bad guy is obvious from the first meeting that pleases me, I like to know who I'm rooting against.

An excellent series. I'm really looking forward to the next one.

The descriptive bit: Wes Cooper is not-quite a ghost, and he’s immortal, oh yeah, and he has a whole bunch of magic almost exploding out of him. He’s keeping that part secret from his vampire, ex-cop, partner, Hudson Rojas. Basically, Toronto is being invaded by ghosts and other creatures from the otherplane and things are getting dangerous.

My thoughts bit: This book was a fun romp through the supernatural realm with one of the best Scooby gangs ever. We and Hudson lead up a team of investigators who originally appeared in the first book of the Not Dead Yet series. There’s Lexi who is a talented witch, Wes who is a baby vampire sired by Hudson, Iskander is Hudson’s business partner and the down-to-earth one of the bunch.

There’s no shortage of action in this story. There’s drama in the ranks because Wes and Hudson are both hiding secrets and the stress of that is wearing on them. New vampire Wes is trying out a relationship but he suffers from depression and it’s really beginning to pull him down. Iskander has been keeping his distance from his Muslim family because his brother-in-law is homophobic and doesn’t want him near.

I loved following Wes as he struggles with his new magical powers. He’s a sweet guy and he’s massively flawed and remarkably honest about it in his own mind. Burke definitely nailed the characterizations in this novel. Even the side characters (although I hate calling them that because they’re amazing) are developed to the point where I cared about all of them. I seriously would read another novel about any of these characters!

Don’t worry if you haven’t read the first book: Not Dead Yet. I hadn’t read the first one and there’s enough exposition at the beginning that you won’t feel left behind. I will tell you that as soon as I finish this review I’m off the find a copy of the first book because I need to know how these wonderful people found each other.

The warnings bit: Please be aware, I’m by no means an expert on what may or may not have the potential to disturb people. I simply list things that I think a reader might want to be aware of. In this book: lots of violence, the killing of supernatural creatures, biting and drawing blood. Some descriptions of death, mention of homophobia. ( )
