Jonah Preston has just bought a house and is feeling confident about starting out on this new journey until a neighbor reveals a shocking truth. His seemingly perfect house was recently the site of a gruesome suicide, which immediately begins to tarnish Jonah’s view of it. When strange things start happening he decides to do some paranormal investigating with the help of his friend and roommate, Max, and this opens the door to a world of surprisingly supernatural events in Brian Corley’s Ghost Bully.
After learning about the suicide in his new home, Jonah and Max decide to take matters into their own hands and contact the restless spirit who has a penchant for moving their things. They buy a Ouija board and while communicating with this ghost they learn his name is Willard and he doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon. Not only that, but he says if both men don’t leave they will die. When the feud between the living and the dead comes to a head Jonah finds himself dealing with a host of spirits and drawn into the battle between angels and demons that he never knew existed.
Ghost Bully is humorously written story that turns the idea of a haunting on its head. Instead of being terrified of the house, Jonah refuses to give up and this decision is what puts him in even more danger. When things begin to change he actually manages to keep a positive outlook and he is genuinely a nice person, even when people are less than nice to him. I wasn’t expecting the story to go the way it did and I am intentionally leaving out some of the details because I don’t want to spoil anything for future readers. Beyond Jonah, Max is a funny counterpoint to his more focused friend. I enjoyed reading Ghost Bully and think that fans of supernatural reads would have fun following Jonah’s journey.
