In the previous three books int he Nicki Styx series by Terri Garey, I have gotten pretty attached to her characters. What I love? Nicki, her crazy tranny granny, Handbags & Gladrags, her gay BFF Evan and his love Butch...and especially the ghosts.
The ghosts Nicki runs into are the brightest stars of this series. The basic plot: Nicki almost died and is saved by Dr Joe Bascombe. She saw the light and how beautiful it was but it wasn't her time to go. Now she can see ghosts. She learns some of their back stories and tries to get them to go into the light. Oh, and now she dates doctor hottie.
Incidentally, Dr Joe isn't one of this series many pluses. I find him dry and boring. Nicki is spirited, strong and kindhearted. She is slightly weird. She deserves a fun and quirky guy who can keep up with her. The relationship between Nicki and her best friend Evan feels more emotional to me.
In "Silent Night, Haunted Night", Nicki's world is thrown for a loop when three spirits, the three Fates, show up in a dream. The next day they show up in her waking life. The hot one, Selene is after Joe and she is creating havoc between Nicki and Joe. I really like how Garey writes a fun and exciting story while keeping her vision on the 'light' and the 'dark' respectful and hopeful. One of the ghosts in this story committed suicide and Garey handled the subject well. I may have even teared up a time or two.
"Silent Night, Haunted Night" is a satisfying story although it is really short. I am also anxious to hear if there are more Nicki books in the future because the ending felt like it really wrapped everything up that we have seen presented in the previous books. I did read that Ms Garey has a new series forthcoming featuring Sammy, the devil, whom we met in other Nicki Styx books.
