Ghost is content to spend all his free time with Gerry. But scandal and hate surrounding Ghost’s appointment as the first male witch, along with a deadly epidemic, force Ghost to make choices that will separate him from his love.
Spurred on by a message from his mentor, Ghost embarks on a journey through mystical underground tunnels and lost civilizations to the frozen lands of his origin, seeking a way to neutralize the threat back home. While he struggles to find a balance between his duties as a witch and his calling as a seer, all Ghost really wants is to return to the haven he has found in Gerry’s arms.
I love finding new authors that have created worlds and characters that keep the pages turning. Ghost’s Dilemma was definitely one of those books. I did blunder a little though, because when I picked up this one, I didn’t realize that it was the 2nd book in Morwen Navarre’s Witch’s Apprentice series. I somehow missed Ghost’s Sight, but that’s okay. It really just added another book to my TBR pile 😉
I’ve admitted before that sometimes it takes a while for me to wrap my head around Dystopian worlds. For some reason, I didn’t really have that problem with Ghost’s Dilemma. I also didn’t feel lost, even though I’d inadvertently skipped the first book in the series. I do want to go back and read Ghost’s Sight though and see where Gerry and Ghost’s story began.
There was so much to love about Ghost’s Dilemma. I loved the relationship between Gerry and Ghost. I loved both Ghost and Gerry’s sense of right, wrong and equality between each other and members of their community. Not everyone around them had that same moral compass. No relationship is perfect though and even though Ghost and Gerry’s was stronger than most, they still had a few things to work out. Ghost also has some tough decisions to make and he doesn’t have time to waste because it really was a matter of life and death.
The world that Morwen Navarre has created for Witch’s Apprentice was interesting. I loved the mix of their present and our present. Confusing, I know, but within the story, it really worked well. There were some interesting twists and turns mixed with some mystery and sweet romance. I can’t wait to go back to Ghost’s Sight. I also wouldn’t mind seeing Ghost and Gerry’s story continue.
