BLOG TOUR: Kindred Spirits: Regal Retribution - Jennifer C. Wilson

A visit to London’s West End sends an already angry ghost into a fury, vowing revenge on those he believes have wronged him in life (and in death). 

Soon, the attacks begin – across the city and beyond – revealing that rarest of beings: haunted ghosts!

When a pattern starts to emerge, a council is established to formulate a plan, but can they work out who is behind the hauntings? As the severity escalates, can the combined force stop the avenging spirit, before the worst happens?

Bringing together the ghostly communities of the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and other places, discover friendships and feuding in the race to retaliation…

What did I think?

The Kindred Spirits series is great fun to read and you don't need to have read the earlier books to enjoy Regal Retribution, the sixth book in the series.  As you can guess from the title though, this is a darker novel than its predecessors with a vengeful ghost wreaking havoc on the relatively peaceful community.

Although it doesn't take long to work out who is out for revenge, I really enjoyed the hunt for the elusive ghost; a ghost who won't listen to reason, even from their own family.  Why they are out for revenge also made me pause for thought, as so many historical figures are purposefully painted in the wrong light to increase the popularity of their successors.

The War of the Roses continues on in death, even though the ghosts are living together in the vicinity of their final resting places, but they must work together to rid themselves of this turbulent ghost.  Mixing historical fact with fantasy fiction, I love how Jennifer C. Wilson breathes so much life into her characters that you can really imagine that they spoke and acted like they do.

Hugely entertaining, Kindred Spirits: Regal Retribution is a fun and riveting read.  I really enjoyed it and recommend both this novel and the whole series.

I received a digital ARC to read and review for the blog tour; this is my honest and unbiased opinion.

About the author:

Jennifer has been stalking dead monarchs since she was a child. It started with Mary, Queen of Scots, then moved onto Richard III. At least now it results in a story!

She won North Tyneside Libraries' Story Tyne short story competition in 2014 (no dead monarchs, but still not a cheerful read), and has been filling notebooks and hard-drives ever since. Her Kindred Spirits series, following the 'lives' of some very interesting ghostly communities, is published by Darkstroke, and her historical romances by Ocelot Press.

Jennifer is currently exploring some new ideas for historical romance, and hoping to visit Kindred Spirit friends old and new, north of the border...
