The Black Parade Book 1


Title: The Black Parade

Author: Kyoko M.

Published: July 19, 2013 by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform

Purchased: February 21, 2015, free Paranormal 13 box set on Kindle.


Blurb: Jordan Amador. 21. New Yorker. Waitress. Mild alcoholic. Murderer.

Two years ago, Jordan accidentally shot and killed a Seer: a person who can see, hear, and talk to ghosts with unfinished business. Her crime came with a hefty price, too. She has two years to help a hundred souls cross over to the afterlife or her soul is bound for hell. Tough break.

As if that weren’t bad enough, two days before her deadline a handsome pain-in-the-ass poltergeist named Michael strolls into her life. His soul is the key to her salvation, but the cost just might be more than she can handle. Solving his death puts her right in the crosshairs of Belial: a vain, bloodthirsty archdemon who won’t rest until she’s his slave. Can she rescue Michael and save her own soul, or will they both be dragged down into the clutches of the eternal black parade?

Review: This was another surprise. I really should not be surprised by having really good books mixed in with the really bad ones in this Paranormal 13 box set but, they are so few and far between that I end up thinking every book after the next is going to be bad.

I really liked this book, so much so that I couldn’t put it down and I finished it the same day I started it.

The only thing I didn’t like, and it’s just one little thing, is that even though she knew that demons were after her and she really couldn’t take them all on her own, she still insisted on going out alone. That’s just ignoring what common sense is telling you.

This book was so good that I’m not even going to take away a star for that.

It was funny and I was able to connect, feel what the characters felt. The descriptions were simple, yet I could see them in my head, just like a movie.

Most of my questions were answered and instead of feeling wary of going on, I’m curious about the next book. I just hope that it’s as good as this one, sometimes sequels are a hit or miss for me.

Everything about this book just captures your attention and refuses to let go and if I would have had to work last night, I might not have been able to because I just couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t even put it down long enough to read a book for my Anthropology class.

I laughed a good bit with this book, she was so sassy, sassing a couple of angels who grew fond of her enough to sass her back. It was great.

I would highly recommend this book if you want to read about angels, demons, and ghosts {oh my!} and a war between said angels and demons.

Thank you for reading my review.
