Surviving agitated ghosts, irritated witches, angry werewolves, and the horrors of high school has never been so hard. 

The night of Samhain may be behind them, but Yuki and her friends have only begun to face the challenges of their paranormal gifts. Tensions are rising--in the pack, at school, and within their tightly knit group of friends.

The tragic death of Wakefield High student Dylan Jacobs has emotions boiling over. The J-Team, Yuki's arch nemesis, have turned the entire football team against her. They claim that Yuki is a witch and blame her for the death of their fellow teammate. Will Yuki be able to solve the mystery of Dylan's death, and the legend of Witchtrot Road, before tempers flare and things turn violent? 

Emma is the friend that Yuki turns to when things get tough, but she's been behaving strangely. Emma has been acting distant and seems to be coming down with a mysterious illness. What will Yuki and her friends do if their healer is truly sick? 

Calvin has become Alpha and wants the best for his pack. He is a dedicated and compassionate leader willing to do anything for the good of his people, but will Cal be able to hold the pack together when a fiery, young werewolf comes seeking revenge? 

Simon may still be a roguish playboy, but he is taking his role as Calvin's second in command deadly serious. Will Simon be able to focus on his pack duties when he is forced to face his dark, emotional past? 

The third novel in the Spirit Guide series is definitely my favorite in the series. E.J Stevens really pulled me into Legend of Witchtrot Road, right at the first page by putting two lead characters in a scary and tough situation. I read this book in one sitting and really wished it never would end.

Yuki and the gang are back, after a tragic death occurs in their school and once again with Yuki’s ability to smell the dead, a new mystery begins. The death is connecting to a very dangerous legend known as Witchtrot Road. But that’s not the only problem, Cal has to deal with the responsibility of being an alpha, Emma her best friend seems to be acting odd and mean boys at school are starting to get rougher with Yuki.

Yuki has a lot on her hands this time around, but I felt like she grew up a little more.  I love her spunk as usual and I noticed how much she relies on her friends in tough situation. But she’s starting to understand that she has to start doing more on her own and learning more about her gift.

Emma, Yuki’s best friend was a more prominent character this time around. She seems to be dealing with a lot and also gets herself into some dangerous situations.  No matter what Emma is always there for friends and I think Yuki starts to realize that her friend needs her now.

Cal, is as protective as ever with Yuki but with his role as the pack leader keeps him away at times.  Then a wolf from Simons past comes barreling in making trouble for Cal and wanting to fight with Simon.  I really enjoyed getting more and more into Simons past again and watch him change and move on in this book. Cal and Yuki of course have the cute moments, I just love them together. I see how their relationship is progressing and I like how Cal is respectful and not pushy like some werewolves in other stories.

Overall I enjoyed the third novel, the plot was a lot more intense and really surprised me with some scary moments and some major fan girl moments. I can’t wait to see more challenges and ghost come around for this group.

This is a Young Adult novel suited for any age. Fans of Rachel Hawkins A Hex Hall Series and Lauren Kate’s Fallen Series will love this!

  1. Great review. I'm halfway through this book myself and just loving it. I'm trying to contain myself and read it slowly so I can savor it. I'm a Simon fan myself, just love him.
