Last Regress by Rachael J. Thorne

From Amazon - Alyssa Matthews thought she had an explanation for everything. After all, as a slightly skeptical paranormal investigator that was what she was used to doing; researching, observing and explaining.

So when she began writing a paper about a long forgotten case of death by Spontaneous Human Combustion, she assumed it would be a run-of-the-mill piece. Little did she realize that she was about to be plunged into a situation that would not only force her to question her own sanity, but also her skepticism about the nature of the paranormal.

Not to mention the dreams that just wouldn't go away...

Alyssa spends a lot of her time researching paranormal cases - she's a paranormal investigator.  One particular case really catches her eye.  His name is Cain and he spontaneously combusted - from the inside out. She thinks something is off about it and begins to investigate further. 

 After her initial investigation, she starts having dreams about someone trying to grab her and she starts to see shadows and ghosts.  Is she going crazy? Cain is the love interest for Alyssa, but it's not a clean-cut romance.  They come from two different places, and when they meet, it's love at first sight.  A bit of a stretch for me to believe that, but whatever works.  

With some twists and turns, Thorne keeps the reader on their toes, weaving between the land of the living and the land of the dead in a fashion that it's very easy for the reader to follow along.  There are thought provoking key points, as well as some spine-tingling moments.  It's a bit slow to start, but as the story develops, the pace increases.  Last Regress is a terrific suspenseful paranormal romance that is sure to thrill fans of the genre!

  1. Last Regress sounds like a wonderfully creepy Halloween read, I'll have to check it out! :)


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
