Booklist Reviews 2019 January #1

As a medium, Harper can communicate with ghosts and is sensitive to their spiritual energy. She's vanquished evil spirits before, but when her family goes on a trip to the Caribbean, she struggles to connect with Razu Island's spirits. Their resort hotel was remodeled after a grisly group murder left behind 16 hideously dismembered bodies, and people have been disappearing ever since at the hands of the Soul Eaters, a group of pale-skinned, eyeless, long-clawed, fanged demons. They are ancient evil, crouched in waiting, and Harper's family could be next. This second book in the Spirit Hunters series does a great job of standing alone as an adventure. The plot kicks off quickly, escalates at a satisfying pace, and ends with the characters in a safe, resolved space while also leaving room for future adventures. While the dialogue is weak at times and there are some logic gaps, it's truly terrific to see Korean culture represented so thoughtfully, and this book will be hugely satisfying to people craving a new scary tale. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2019 Fall

Harper Raine's family takes a trip to a remote Caribbean island. Harper experiences visions of disappearing islanders and must rely on her spirit-hunting skills and help from new friends, human and ghost, to save the day. Delightfully spooky and with a cast of well-drawn multicultural characters, Ohs second Spirit Hunters tale should appeal to a wide audience. Copyright 2019 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
