    1 thought on “The Ghoul Vendetta”

    1. Another enjoyable offering in the SPI Files. Now I can see the set-up for this book that Shearin wove into the first three books. Very skillfully done.For those who are into paranormal romance, this series may frustrate you. The pace of Mac and Rake’s relationship is glacial, but I’m okay with that. This seems to be parr for the course, as Shearin’s Raine Benares series is much the same. Unfortunately there is also the same is a tendency to repeat, repeat, repeat herself (although not quit [...]

    2. Lisa Shearin finally tapped into more background information on Ian Byrne -- the human partner of Makenna Fraser in The Ghoul Vendetta. Ian joined SPI after his cop-partner was devoured by ghoul. Apparently the ghoul leader is fixated on Ian without anyone really understand why. In this book, the ghouls are doing blatant robberies (captured on camera!) while taunting Ian -- and later they even managed to capture Ian.I LOVED the exploration of Ian's background as well as the Irish mythology behi [...]

    3. *Source* Publisher via NetGalley*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*The Ghoul Vendetta is the fourth installment in author Lisa Shearin's SPI Files. This is a series that features Makenna (Mac) Fraser as a Seer who works for the Supernatural Protection & Investigation. SPI keeps the peace between the supernatural races, while also keeping the human race from discovering that others live among them. Mac has come a long way from the first novella, to this book. She's grown not only i [...]

    4. What should have been a fun date for Seer Mac and her Goblin boyfriend Rake quickly turns sour when the yacht they're partying on is attacked by a kraken and a bunch of other weird creatures normally only seen in bad sci-fi movies. Things only get worse when ghouls start carrying out perfect bank jobs and eating any security guards who come anywhere close to catching them in the act. Throw in an old vendetta against her SPI partner Ian and shocking kidnap and Mac realises the stakes have never b [...]

    5. Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.While I have some small quibbles, THE GHOUL VENDETTA was exactly what I expected from Shearin and The SPI Files. Fun, dramatic, witty and an all around good read, THE GHOUL VENDETTA continues the series in a great way, answering some questions while opening new avenues for the story to go down. This book captivated me from the very beginning, and I read it in only two sittings.First of all, Mac and Rake. I swear, every scene they had together made me w [...]

    6. 3.5I hate when a book is marketed as 'X meets Y' or, even worse, 'if you loved X author, you'll love this book'. I tend to avoid them even when the X author is the one I like. Reasons I enjoyed this book:- with the exception of one particular gory detail from the case they are working on, it's light and it doesn't take itself seriously, so you shouldn't either;- the overall theme (it's not in the blurb, so I'll leave it to the readers);- the friendship between Makenna and Ian (it's great and ref [...]

    7. I've attempted to read this book multiple times and I get bored and try again and return it to the library, and I just took it out again. I've read the start and the end andIt's not a bad story. The writing isn't poor. The characters are just fine. I just cannot get into it. It's just me.

    8. The SPI Files series is full of well developed characters, interesting story lines with plenty of mystery and lots of action. Trouble always seems to find Makenna and her boyfriend Rake is usually with her when it happens. Their date doesn't go as planned when the ship they're on is attacked and someone is kidnapped. Since he was kidnapped by creatures that don't belong in this world, Makenna and her partner Ian end up on the case. If you're a fan of the Raine Benares world get ready to be excit [...]

    9. This series is urban fantasy. Each book is a self-contained episode in the life of Makenna Fraser, seer to a supernatural police force. The books are fairly light and short. Emphasis on action, less on character development or substance. Better to read the books from the beginning, even though each book explains the background.There is a very little romance, but it's neither the focus of the story nor is it well developed. So the relationship between the h and her romantic interest continues to [...]

    10. SPI agent Makenna Fraser points out that bad stuff always seems to happen around her, and she’s not kidding. The Ghoul Vendetta opens with Mak and Goblin Lord Rake Danescu on a yacht in the Hudson, along side several of the supernatural world’s bigwigs, when it is attacked by a kraken and other sea creatures. What is even more strange is that no one is hurt and everyone is left alone as soon as their target, a vampire mob boss, is kidnapped. Soon after, a familiar foe turns up, robbing banks [...]

    11. I can't believe it's taken me until now to see the ties from this series to the Raine Benares series. Is a Rake Tam's son??? Now I will have to go back and read the series again. I love the sarcasm and humor

    12. 3.5While I enjoyed this book I felt that a big part of the book was more of Mac rambling on and repeating a lot of stuff that could have given room to more development. Finishing this book made me smile and I will continue to read this series, but I wish there would be less telling and more happening. It did tie up a lot of plotlines from the previous books which was good.

    13. The Ghoul Vendetta is a fast fun read that kept me entertained. I adore Shearin's stories. Always plenty of action and surprises. So why three stars? Here my problem. It's frustrating when authors don't do what you want them to do. I like Mac. It took a while to warm up to Ian, but once I did that was it. He's my guy. I Do Not like Rake. It's safe to say it was hate at first sight. From their first meeting in the short story "Lucky Charms" he was a smarmy arrogant manipulator. I can't put that a [...]

    14. Previously, on Ben’s reviews of THE SPI FILES…:… the intimations of bigger and better story arcs continue here. Once again we have a direct reference to the face-shifting ghoul terrorizing Ian. (According to the series list, the next book is The Ghoul Vendetta, so I’m guessing we’ll soon get some pay-off on that arc!)…I was going to criticize the covers and complain about how they’re all different poses of Mac and Ian waving weapons aroundPlus, it’s nice that the covers acknowle [...]

    15. Fun read. Great addition to the world with some plot threads neatly tied off & others expanded. Recommended. If you do a continuous re-read you can find little info-dumpy paragraphs that seemed cut & paste from the prior novels. But who doesn't love that line about whether or not to be worried about the continued well being of the Norse gods? :D

    16. 1.5 stars. This one didn't work for me at all. If it hadn't been by an author I usually like, it would have been DNF. The plot was overly convoluted with too many not-well-defined players. Some of the dialogue was eyeroll inducing. The romance between Rake and Makenna happened so far off the page that when Rake (view spoiler)[declared his love and his desire to make Earth his home because of her, needed for the plot resolution, (hide spoiler)] it came off as preposterous.I'll still give the next [...]

    17. My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.I was so excited to be back in the world of SPI and Makenna Fraizer. I’ve loved this series since I listened to the prequel story, Lucky Charms in the Night Shift Anthology. This series has been full of action, humor and really fun characters. Add in Johanna Parker’s narration and I’m in love.Mac is a seer, she can see through glamours, which is how she got her job at SPI. SPI works around the world to keep the supe [...]

    18. Another great addition to the SPI Files series, this time Makenna Fraser, her partner Ian Byrne and her new boyfriend Rake Danescu are after a gang that is made up of beings that resemble Creatures from the Black Lagoon and lead by the evil shapeshifter that has been causing Ian nightmares for years. Now he’s upping the ante by kidnapping a vampire gang leader's nephew and knocking off several banks that targeted vampire’s safety deposit boxes. If he’s not stopped, it could mean the return [...]

    19. The vibe in The Ghoul Vendetta is reminiscent of Kim Harrison, Eileen Wilks, and Jim Butcher approached with a more lighthearted touch. This fourth entry in the SPI Files series totally worked for me as a stand-alone without having read the first three titles. Fun.

    20. In previous books in the SPI Files series, Agent Makenna “Mac” Fraser and her partner Ian Byrne have repeatedly encountered a mysterious villain from Ian’s past. He poses as a ghoul, but they know he’s really something much more powerful. In The Ghoul Vendetta, they’ll finally discover just who and what he is and the reason for his grudge against Ian. But first, they have to find a missing vampire, heir to the powerful Bathory family, who was kidnapped off his yacht by sea monsters whi [...]

    21. An OK urban fantasy novel, this latest installment of the author’s SPI Files series (where SPI stands for Supernatural Protection & Investigation agency) relates a new story about the series’ protagonist, Makenna Fraser, and her friends. A bunch of dimension-hopping ghouls have committed a few daring bank robberies lately. Humans have been killed. Makenna and friends have no choice but to investigate. Fast moving but utterly forgettable.

    22. I dont think I have ever read a book quite like The Ghoul Vendetta. When I read the blurb I immediately wanted to know more so when I got an chance to read this book I dived into this story as soon as I could and I could not put it down ! it was so so good !!! In this book we mainly follow Makenna and I just loved how strong , independent ,loyal , smart and kick ass she was. I felt like this story was Lisa Shearin twist on combination of things but in away reading this book made me think of the [...]

    23. I liked the book but my only problem was that this battle that was being hyped up for the whole book was written in ten pages. Kinda disappointed it wasn't a bigger part of the book. Felt rushed. Felt like the author just did the simplest way to resolve the conflict. But I still love Lisa Shearin and her books

    24. The Ghoul Vendetta (SPI Files 4)Author: Lisa ShearinPublisher: DAWPage count: 292ppRelease date: 31st Jan 2017Reviewer: Theresa DerwinThe fourth in the SPI Files series starts in June, and Agent Mac Fraser has been working with her partner Agent Ian Byrne for about a year now.SPI, the agency of the title, is a government agency with its HQ in New York, which acts as the supernatural equivalent of of the FBI/CIA etc dealing with supernatural or mythical criminals and crimes whilst protecting inno [...]

    25. I really liked the Raine Benares series, every new book was a must-read for me, meaning that I would read them immediately after being published. For some reason the SPI files don't hold the same kind of fascination for me, though they should be right up my alley. Basically they are Raine Benares meets Hellboy.It is rather hard to say why I am not more interested in the series. I think that there are basically 2 reasons: (1) there isn't enough humor and (2) the characters are absolutely bland.In [...]

    26. Maybe because reading this book has been clandestine (in the bathrooms at work and on lunches) but I felt a bit of a disconnect between the relationship between Mackenna and Rake. I think because it was more of a side line instead of being integral to the story, because once again, Rakes help as a dark mage was needed.See, Ian was kidnapped by Janus— we finally have a name for our arch nemesis!— and Mac’s not about to let him be sacrificed to break a 4,000 year old curse and let the Formor [...]

    27. I really enjoyed this latest in the SPI Files series. Mac's race to save her partner was just as gripping as her continuing relationship with Lord Denesku (please pardon spelling errorsI'm an audio listener only). With the big bad that escaped from the last novel, I thought he would be sure to be involved in this one, but we had a different big bad. One that returned with a vengeance. I continue to love this series, not only is the mythology fascinating, but the characters are so compelling. I j [...]

    28. A thrilling and fast-paced addition to the SPI Files. Those looking for more Makenna and Rake romance won't be disappointed; those looking for mystery and action won't be disappointed. And the cherry on the sundae is the bond of partnership between Makenna and Ian, the backbone of this exhilarating and emotionally taunt story. Too often a crime-solving duo of a man and woman relies on the trope of romance. Shearin puts that well-used trope aside to offer us a true friendship and the loyalty of p [...]

    29. Four solid stars on this one. Loved it. The action scenes were easy to follow and exciting. The descriptions took me there. The plot went along as it should even though I must say the ending was not what I expected. But that was good. It means Lisa isn't predictable. Well, the basics were what you would expect in a series but not the specifics. I was a touch disappointed that one event I thought of didn't happen but hey that is just personal. Danger and suspense abounded, and mysteries too. All [...]
