As Pretoria reintroduces Adam to the Realm and his place in it, he realizes that she is not only trying to reclaim him for the sake of humanity, but also for the spirit world and herself. Facing a powerful evil , Adam re-engages with the Realm in order to save his friend and the human world while re-discovering why he had tried to escape it in the first place.

My thoughts: When WiSpY by Rob Andrews was brought to my attention, with a chance for a review, I was intrigued. It holds two things that I found interesting. First is that it is paranormal. I have been reading a lot of paranormal books lately, but none dealt with spirit realms like this one. I figured this would be a first. The second thing that drew me to this, was that it is a book about a blogger. How perfect!
I was pulled into the story immediately. Andrews has a wonderful way of describing everything. Adam's personality was very interesting. He stated what he thought, and got right down to things. I really liked that. He made a wonderful protagonist in this story. I also loved Pretoria. She was a take charge spirit who was also loving and patient with Adam. She showed him the way back to who he truly was, and helped him save the world. Tony's role was fun and I loved reading his comments and his worry about Adam. The other spirits were well described.
Learning the different spirits that formed the Realm was interesting. There was danger, love, and suspense in this book. I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next. I also really wonder about Adam and Pretoria's back story. It was touched upon several times but I just wonder what else they did in the past.
I will be recommending this book to others. If you enjoy paranormal fiction then definitely give WiSpY a try. I wonder what Andrews will come up with next...
