@Book ë He Speaks Dead ⚝ eBook or E-pub free

Really enjoyed it I stayed away for some time as I wasn t sure whether I would like it But the combination of paranormal, mystery, romance and mm kept me interested and wanting to read it in one session.I had expected that the story would be told from Charlie s point of view It was a pleasant surprise to see the events unfold through Ethan s eyes view spoiler I really experienced the depth of feeling from both Ethan and Charlie I was enchanted with how much they loved each other And even though they both knew their being together hurt Charlie and depleted him of his life force, they couldn t stay away There was such longing and love and affection between them.I did wonder how Briggs would fit into this compact relationship And I have to say the ending was bittersweet I was rather disappointed Briggs didn t get a chance to love Charlie Or somehow, for all 3 characters to get their happily ever after Though, since I love happy endings and I obviously favoured Charlie and Ethan, it made sense that Briggs would die so Ethan could obtain a body, thus stop siphoning Charlie and give him what he truly needed, someone alive to hold and cherish him.I got a bit lost towards the end in the explanations on how the portal, the barrier were all meant to function and destroy the Darkness but the action was enough to keep me hooked and hold my breath to see how it would all end I feared I would be left hanging as the action stretched right to the the very last pages of the book and the scales tipped one way and the other for the characters throughout Good mystery and detective work, mixed with the paranormal activity of having ghosts affected and affecting the course of the action.Simply put, I really loved the perfect combination of the elements having Charlie in a relationship with a ghost and all that entailed, then have the pair try to figure out the strange occurrences, solving out the mystery with Briggs help, everything topped off by the battle against the deadly Darkness trying to use Charlie as a portal into the world of the living hide spoiler Read this awhile back, and it stuck with me I am not going to write too much here, because I could honestly write full length essays on what I love about this author s books Simply put, this is great Wilder has a way of making you fall in love with the characters, and this is no exception The sex scenes are so full of emotion that I could cry okay, HAVE cried My only complaint is not really a complaint Briggs I liked him He deserved better Ethan feels a little selfish to me It took awhile before I decided whether that was a bad or a good thing, and yeah I think it s the latter Selfish, stupid love that rips out a reader s heart A writer who has the ability to reduce me to a puddle of tears I kind of love those things If you like some angst and a bit of a head trip, READ THIS. @Book ô He Speaks Dead × Charlie Harrington Not Only Speaks With The Dead And Sees The Dead, He Can Give Them Form Lucky For Him, Because The Love Of His Life, Ethan, Is Dead Charlie Helps Ethan Possess Complete Strangers So Ethan Can Use Their Bodies For SexThings Are Good Between Them Until Charlie Is Accused Of Murder And Detective Daniel Briggs Walks Into His Life For The First Time In Years, Charlie Is Attracted To Someone Who Is Living Ethan Knows He Should Step Aside And Let Charlie Live His Life, But He Just Can T Give Charlie Up Even If Staying With Charlie May Eventually Kill Him A solid 4.5 stars in my opinion Hopefully without sounding too shallow, what drew me first to the book was its catching title and then the synopsis I had read previous works by Adrienne Wilder so I did anticipate it would be pretty good Still, it managed to exceed those expectations and kept me glued to my ereader until the end.First, a few general remarks I would describe this one as a mystery novel with romance in the background, a dash of thriller and some dark undertones While Charlie s established relationship with Ethan and the unusual triangle with Briggs played an essential part, it was not the central focus of the book The main plot follows the clues behind different murders committed in the past or present, all gravitating in one way or another around Charlie and the entities human or otherwise trying to exploit him I found that the writing style kept a good balance, not letting the depressing moments to become too overwhelming Even so, it was heartbreaking for me when view spoiler little James as a ghost asked Ethan to take him home hide spoiler Damn, Briggs I am not happy How can Charlie and Ethan live with themselves after all that happened, I have no idea This book left me mad SPOILERS BELOW I went through the reviews and I am glad to find out that I am not the only one who is upset about Briggs being disposable He was treated like crap during the whole book, used and abused through its entirety except for the first chapter, granted view spoiler only to be killed off without a second thought in the end hide spoiler I finished this over two weeks ago and i am still upset over the ending.I keep reading the other reviews, and i know some loved it, but the whole unfairness factor just crushed me.Ethan, i feel bad for you, really i do,but go into the light and give someone else a chance at life. Stopping at 63% for a break Not DNF ing.It s not because I don t like it or it s bad writing The writing is actually stellar, the plot really pulls you in, and the characters are engaging..but, BUT I think I want Charlie with Briggs instead of Ethan.the ghost I like Ethan but Briggs is ALIVE, dammit I have a bad feeling and I think I need a break before I continue. I am conflicted about the ending seemed a bit too easy but I m still giving this 5 stars because it is one of the mostly uniquely written urban fantasy stories that I have read in a long time This was a smart, sexy and angsty ride about a ghost, the man he loves and the new detective that threatens it all. Definitely makes me reevaluate my thoughts on ghost stories.Wilder writes engaging action thriller stories with strong relationships The love triangle between Charlie, Ethan and Briggs is an fascinating one and the resolution intriguing Along the way is pain, violence, sadness and some revelations Another entertaining read that kept me flipping the pages.Favorite quotes Love is supposed to be about sacrifice, but since I d been with Charlie, I d learned it was also about greed If it will make you feel better, I can hate him enough for both of us. This book is written in Ethan s first person POV which is worth mentioning mostly because Ethan dies in the very first paragraph Or rather, recalls his death He can t remember much else from his life except his last few minutes And right afterward, the first thing he remembers is meeting Charlie as Charlie is brought back into his life by a pair of EMT s.Charlie is a very special person He can t only see dead people and speak to them, he can also make the dead corporeal, sharing his life force through his touch In the early days of their relationship this was how Charlie and Ethan used to make love, but over the course of the years, it took its toll on Charlie, and so they resorted to Charlie helping Ethan taking over random strangers bodies for a limited amount of time as a means for them to have sex.Just having Ethan around, being with him, weakens Charlie He s aware that the connection might eventually kill him, but thinks loving Ethan, being with Ethan is worth it Besides, he s been hovering between the worlds of the living and the dead for almost all of his life, and after working for the FBI even when he was a child, the world of the living doesn t appeal too much to Charlie That is, until Charlie meets Daniel, and for the first time in years feels attracted to a living person Very much attracted, in fact, and the feeling is mutual.Ethan can see the attraction, and of course he can also see how dear being with him costs Charlie Since he loves Charlie and wishes for him to live, Ethan is even willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, to give Charlie up so he can be with Daniel and live But he hadn t reckoned with Charlie s stubborn determination, nor with the strength of his own feelings for Charlie But Daniel is stubborn too, and his feelings are just as strong Strong enough that he might be willing to share Charlie with a ghost.However, bigger things are going on than this bizarre love triangle What brought the three of them together in the first place was the murder of Charlie s old mentor Roy Sullivan, a metaphysicist Apparently Sullivan, like a modern day Dr Faustus, dabbled with forces he couldn t really control, and paid the highest price for underestimating them However, darker, scarier beings than mere ghosts were set free through Sullivan s hybris, and Charlie is the only one who can stop them But he might very well be lost to a faith worse than death if Daniel and Ethan don t combine forces in order to save the man they both love.The narrator s voice captured me right from the start, Easygoing, humorous without being snarky, wise and naive at the same time, Ethan comes alive on the pages His feelings for Charlie are clearly strong, strong enough to keep him in the here and now, even make him human enough to be selfish and possessive while at the same time he s selfless enough to try and give up Charlie, and with him his own very existence, to keep Charlie alive.We only see Charlie through Ethan s eyes, which may be why he often appeared larger than life, but Charlie certainly is a very special person Being in love with a ghost isn t easy, Charlie won t deny that, but he s committed for better or worse, and faithful to fault And Daniel, who fell in lust with Charlie on first sight, and in love with him almost reluctantly later, must learn to accept this fact.Although character development, Ethan s in particular, was an important element here, this was mostly a plot driven story There were some outrightly grueling scenes, like the actual murder thankfully somewhat concealed in a way I thought pretty smart , and some thrilling action I also found the mystery well done I, for my part, had a good and entertaining time figuring out what was going on along with Ethan The author took a real effort in finding scientific explanations for some of the occurrences in the story in fact, too much for my liking, as sometimes I felt hit over the head with facts Likely rather a matter of taste.I also had mixed feelings about the ending of the story It was actually the best solution I could ve imagined and somewhat unexpected it was also sad, even as beautiful as it was.Overlooking the metaphysical musings, I d warmly recommend this unusual, gripping, entertaining and well written ghost story.
