Whilst this is in the Psychic Survey series, you do not have to read the others. I have not read any of these books and throughout this story I never once felt that I had missed something. In fact it has got me downloading others in the series and as they are on Kindle Unlimited. I can begin the series.
Thirteen, tells Ness’ story. Due to her been psychic, she had an unloved childhood, abused by her mom and was alone the majority of the time. When she was asked to cleanse a derelict lighthouse in the Isle of Skye, she did not imagine that she would have to relive the secrets that she locked away. The lighthouse was a place to hang out for the teenagers of the isle, with not much to do they played a game that was passed on to other generations. Tell Thirteen ghost stories and blow out the candle. Harmless for most.
Even though Ness was good at what she did, there was a vulnerability to her. Used to being by herself, she rarely had to rely on anyone. Living with Angus and his mom Eilidh, help show what she had been missing.
The illustrative way the author wrote this story, you could imagine being there. The wind and rain making you feel cold as it drips down your neck, but then the glorious sunshine, that shows how beautiful the place is. Whilst this is a ghost story, the addition of the occult gives it a dark feel. The scene’s at the lighthouse makes this book a page turner and you can feel the seriousness of Ness’ task. One of my favourite scenes is when Eilidh was explaining the significance of the number 13 and the bible.
If you have not read any of the psychic series than this is a great introduction to the books. This is a quick read and will have you engrossed in the story

    Thank you for reviewing Thirteen, really glad you enjoyed it. The lighthouse is based on Neist Point Lighthouse on Skye, a wonderful place I had the privilege of visiting last year and yes… it really is abandoned as described!!
