Book Review - First Contact by Kat Green

Amazon USA Amazon UK

 Review by Anniek

Sloane is a paranormal real estate agent. She sells houses that are haunted. No one knows that she is not only searching for haunted houses to sell, but is also looking at them because she wants to find her fiancé Michael. He died in a tragic car accident. Ever since that fatal day Sloane has been waiting for him to make an appearance. Michael always said to try out everything for 365 days and a day. On the 366th day Sloane is investigating a possible haunted house. She feels that this is her last chance to reconnect with Michael.

How great would it be to work as a paranormal real estate agent? I liked reading about Sloane and her job a lot. I have seen lots of episodes of Ghost Hunters and I found myself getting excited when Sloane was setting up her equipment. She is so brave, cool and collected. My imagination would probably go mental with the first creak of the stairs or floorboards. I admired Sloane, but at the same time my heart ached for her because she's still grieving so immensely about the loss of the love of her life.

When I saw the cover of First Contact I knew I had to read this debut novel by Kat Green, which is the alias of authors Kat de Falla and Rachel Green. They have put a lot of personal experiences in their story and this shows in well written details. First Contact grabbed me from the beginning. I even stopped reading in the evening once because I had chills running down my spine. I love it when a story scares me. This was my first experience with Kat Green, but it certainly won't be my last. I'm ready to be spooked again.

Advice

First Contact is a great paranormal novel about a haunted house. If you like stories that scare you, I would highly recommend this book. Make sure to read it after dark.

  12. I love anything scary. Always have. My daughter, now 22, started sneaking out of her bed and peaking behind my chair as I watch on of the Friday the 13th series when she was four years old. When I caught her I talked to her about real and make believe. She was always older then her years since she was an only child. Just me and her. :) She understood and grew up loving scary movie, ghost shows, and anything paranormal to this day.
