I've been waiting for this second book in the Haunting Emma series. Deception ended on a mysterious cliff hanger and I couldn't wait to see where it was going. Take a peek at the book blurb of Betrayal...

Emma Vaile is the most powerful ghostkeeper in centuries. Which is great when she's battling the wraith-master Neos, but terrible when she's flirting with fellow ghostkeeper (and soul mate) Bennett. When ghostkeepers fall in love, the weaker one loses all power, and that's not something Bennett can handle. Heartbroken and alone, Emma tries to lose herself in school with fellow ghostkeeper, Natalie. When a new team of ghostkeepers arrive - one a snarky teen boy, the other a British scholar - Emma finds solace in training for the battle against Neos. But as the team grows stronger, they are threatened by an unknown force. One they thought was good.

Book One
This is a fairly short book, but it's not short on action! There's plenty of it as Emma and her crew go on the offensive against vicious ghost-like creatures. I always thought of ghosts as lacking substance, but the ones in this story have some serious bite. They are out for the kill and one hottie has already lost his life. Betrayal is a page-turner. It's full of suspense and I was anxious to get to the bottom of what was going on. If I have any complaint, it's that this book had less romance. I've learned I'm a romance junkie! LOl...I definitely wanted to see more of the goings-on between Emma and her love interest, Bennett. They are a bit on the outs in Book 2--and for good reason, as you'll learn, but still...lol... Happily, it looks like their romance will be heating up again and I'm looking forward to it. On to book 3...!
