Synopsis: Dominica and her tribe of hungry ghosts were driven from Esperanza, that magical city high in the Andes, but they were not all destroyed. As a last devastating blow against Tess Livingston, Dominica seized Tess’s niece Maddie as a host, and fled to the United States. The evil bruja has settled in a small resort town in Florida and is cementing her power over a new tribe of unquiet dead. But she will not be able to take over Cedar Key, not without arousing the suspicion of the US government. And not without attracting the attention of Wayra, her oldest lover and most bitter enemy.
Passion, terror, blood, and courage abound in this supernatural thriller that will take your breath away.
Review: In ‘Ghost Key’, Ms. MacGregor has skillfully woven the supernatural and mythological into a spellbinding story. When the darkest bruja, Dominica, was forced from Esperanza she had to survive and she has done so by taking over a small Florida town and the niece of her enemy. The ‘hungry ghosts’ will stop at nothing to experience life again, sliding into a living human at will and leaving the person an unwilling party to the depravity each hungry ghost seeks. Brujas, shape-shifters, psychics, and courageous humans populate ‘Ghost Key’ and will draw you in with their vividness and eerie vitality. The characters, setting, and ingenious plot will leave you breathless for more! From the tiniest idiosyncrasy Ms. MacGregor has crafted characters who will stay with you long after you have closed the book. I do recommend reading ‘Esperanza’, the first book featuring Dominica and her lover (turned deadly enemy) Wayra, prior to reading 'Ghost Key'.
