My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ghost are real.

From those who wish to say goodbye to their love ones, to those who wish to hurt and take over another's soul.

And only a Speaker and a Protector stand in the way, Because

Ghost are real.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kudos to Constance Sharper for creating a sequel that lives up to it's amazing predecessor!

The Airborne series lives up to the hype with it's amazing world building and characters.

A few months have passed since the events of Airborne, with Avery and Mason dealing with their unresolved feelings between them and those who want the powerful Willow magic still on the lookout. Many issues that were left in the air (sort of speak) are tied up nicely in Grounded, mostly the relationship between Avery and Mason. This was a a give or take for the story as the world building was left at a stand still while the author focus on the characters and their lives.
