Bobby Nash is one of the most prolific and coolest authors I've ever known. He's always writing, or plotting, or doing something to further his career. He just never stops. So it was that, while a rainy yet profitable day of selling at the Cooper Young Community Farmers Market, I dove into Alexandra Holzer's Ghost Gal: The Wild Hunt, a published by Raven's Head Press. Wow, what a ride! The story is thus: Alexandra Holzer follows in her famous father's footsteps (say THAT three times fast!) in her career choice of being a paranormal investigator in 1960s New York City. Between her and her fiance, Joshua, ghosts don't stand a chance! However, due to an honest mistake, an ancient and dangerous spirit is freed from his prison, seeking revenge on the one who imprisoned him so many years ago - Hans Holzer. This spirit, known as a sluagh, seeks to bring back The Wild Hunt once more!
The slim book is chock full of great action, memorable characters, and a distinct longing for book two! I will freely admit that of the characters, my favourite has to be Jacob Black. When you read the book, you'll know why. He is sleek, dangerous, and . . . well, that's all I'm going to say about him. Nash's take on the The Wild Hunt was well done; I never get tired of reading about such a terrifying event within the Otherworld. Nash's writing is pure and true with this book; if you have never experienced the mind of Nash, Ghost Gal: The Wild Hunt is a great place to start. If you are familiar with his works, you won't be disappointed. A great book to read on a rainy day!
