Zoë Martinique Investigations By: Phaedra Weldon

Wraith
This book was awesome! Kept me entertained, curious and totally inspired the whole way through. Weldon came out with a totally original plot, type of superhero and a neat cast of characters to accompany us on the adventure of a lifetime.

I loved the originality of the story. I love how parallel her book is to my blogged series Cursed by Cobrador. There were some parts that totally had me grinning from ear to ear when Zoë realized her power or projected herself from her body and intervened with something that was happening on the living realm. The book had some badass moments.

I have but one complaint. Weldon has such badass ideas, but they were presented in an insecure and immature way to me. She has this awesome “wraith” character who is basically a ghost that travels outside of her body and can kick ass, but instead of kicking ass, Zoë contemplates too much. We have much of her inner dialogue for 300 pages. Just her thoughts about wraiths and if she does this, then this will happen, but if she doesn’t then this will happen. I would have preferred more verbal dialogue and more action scenes.

Just wish there was more than inner dialogue, random flashbacks and repeated scenery. We were described Zoë’s slippers at least five times, Rhonda’s hair and nails, the way Zoë described herself with the same white hair. It was exhausting the imagery she provided because it was all the same throughout the whole thing.

The plot was original.

The Wraith power was wicked.

The whole concept was totally cool.

It was great to finally get to read a book where the cover and title perfectly described actual paranormal phenomena instead of it being a metaphor for something else. It was well done, but immature and a lot of it could have been considered irrelevant.

I would recommend the book to any paranormal lover.

  1. I kind of have mixed feelings about this book series. Not for sure if I want to read it. I probably will at least once because I feel it deserves that but idk about buying the series and it will not be next on my list.

    1. Thank you for reading my review! I believe this type of book is directed to a more specific audience, preferably individuals who are interested in the paranormal. But I don’t want to discourage readers because one never knows if paranormal fiction is for them until they try it out. Paranormal fiction is such a broad topic that includes lore, various types of ghosts, demons, and legends. And it’s often presented in a fantasy format like Weldon’s. I don’t like fantasy but this was worth reading, and I wouldn’t have known without trying it.
