A Ghost's Addiction
Usually, mystery, thriller, anything with the word "ghost", those books don't really interest me. From the description of this one, especially the part with the Plague Doctors really piqued my interest. A town full of supernatural stuff, that's right up my alley. I think Damien was a very good character, he was well-rounded and down-to-earth. Although, I was, and still am, curious as to why everyone referred to him as "devil."

What I liked about Valerie was that she was really cool, with her knowledge of video games and literature like Shakespeare's Star Wars. I'm still curious as to what she was though. Was she a ghost, or was she something else entirely?
I have to say that I really liked how mysterious Serena was. It wasn't just the whole aspect of her being transsexual, but that, like Valerie, she was an entirely different being altogether. After reading chapter six, where we find out about Serena, I really wanted to know more, and then after the part about the missing poster of the girl who looked a lot like Serena, it made me want to keep reading and find out a whole lot more about her. By the end, my curiosity was satisfied, but I was still confused because it seemed like she was some sort of shape-shifter, before she kissed Damien.
Your first description of Rayne, when Damien saw her in the classroom, right away, made me suspect that she was in with the plague doctors, but I didn't expect her to be their Queen. I liked that, she held all this power.
All in all, I thought it was a great story, quickly paced so that its not boring, but slow enough so as the reader isn't questioning if they missed something. And the details painted a vivid picture in my mind. I loved it, and I hope to read more.
