About the book:
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.
As chilling and page-turning as Deception, this sequel will grab readers and hold them to the last page. No one is safe from suspicion as Emma closes in on the traitor.
The Haunting Emma novels soared with the first debuting book Hauting by Lee Nichols. Betrayal takes off immediately after the ending of Haunting offering a enjoyable mix of romance, suspense, and ghosts. Emma is a very relatable character that continues to expand through each passing book. While this new and extremely dangerous world seems to grow, so does this main character in her experience, knowledge, and power. With Bennett by her side she continues to grow and grasp the sincerity of her place as a Ghostkeeper. For our steamy romance it is heartbreaking to know the cost of a relationship between our two characters, but it builds desperation into the story that will keep readers guessing. After the loss Emma’s best friends this book carries a very lonely feel that readers will find tangible throughout the pages. Fortunately, with new characters entering the story she will find herself with many more loved ones to protect.
