"The Strangest Things Happen When You're Dead." - May Elizabeth Trump.
The deathly silence is about to be broken. She disliked the company of others and death did little to warm her spirit. She had led an independent life and she faced death in much the same way. She was finally alone, finally free from the mindless babble of others, at least that’s what she thought. May Elizabeth Trump was the rarest of spirits and she was none too happy about it either. She was a dead medium, a ghost who can speak with the living, and her services were to become in great demand. Flung into the limelight and smothered with unwanted attention, May soon discovers that it is not only ghosts with long awaited messages that have taken an interest in her. Something dark was lurking in the shadows, stalking her. Even the dead are not left to rest in peace. Dead Medium: A humorous, character driven story and a unique vision of life after death. Not your average ghost story.
“The Strangest Things Happen When You’re Dead.” – May Elizabeth Trump.
Penned as ‘Not your average ghost story,’ I would have to say I agree. It is like nothing of this genre that I’ve read before and I found myself getting sucked into the first chapter. I couldn’t help but like the cantankerous May Elizabeth Trump and some of her lines were hilarious.
I’ve seen ‘Dead Medium’ being advertised around Twitter for a while now, so it was an absolute pleasure to finally find the time to check out the first chapter (and add it to my Goodreads ‘want to read’ list. The writing is of a high standard, the voice brings the character of May to life with the promise of an engaging and hilarious read.
20/6: I read the whole of chapter one to assess it. Read chapter two because I was curious about its direction, and now I’m partway through chapter three (and running out of sample %) so it looks like I’m going to have to buy it…
