Ghost Hope by Ripley Patton

The much-anticipated fourth and final book of The PSS Chronicles is here. 

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00039]Olivia Black does not feel safe. Nightmares plague her sleep and haunt her days. If she has to endure one more minute stuck in a safe house in rainy Portland, she’s going to lose it. When Mike Palmer sneaks off to find her sister Kaylee without her, it’s the last straw. She has to do something.

Then Palmer’s hackers find the Dome on a satellite feed: dark, abandoned and smack in the middle of the Oregon desert three hundred miles from where it started. If they can reach it before anyone else, they can crack the computer systems and access every piece of information on PSS the CAMFers and The Hold have ever collected.

But in order to do that, Olivia must return to the origin of her fears in a race against all the forces that have ever pitted themselves against her. She must unravel decades of deceit to reveal the true origins of Psyche Sans Soma to the world at last.

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of The PSS Chronicles – if you are new to the series and the author, do yourself a favor and get Book 1 (free!) and Book 2 &  Book 3 for $.99/each.  For less than two bucks you will be enthralled by the adventures of Olivia Black and company, and you will be glad you took a chance on this series.  You will be able to read them back to back, which will help with remembering all the characters and events (I needed a reminder between books).

There is humor, adventure, romance, betrayal, mystery, surprises, and more wrapped up in an incredible sci-fi setting.  As with the first three books, Book 4 had me riveted to the pages as the action comes full circle with Book 1.   It is immensely satisfying to get answers to the questions that begin with “what is PSS?” and “who can Olivia trust.”  I liked how the characters are scattered and then reunited in the final book.  Saying what else I liked and why would include spoilers, so I will just say this series is not to be missed.

Kudos to Ripley Patton for such an incredibly original and entertaining story – from the PSS malady to allowing it to be more of an enhanced state than disability.  I loved the multiple narratives and points of view, and the entire series plays out like an action movie with insane special effects.  Just as soon as you catch your breath, the ride continues.  And at the end of the ride, you can’t help but marvel at the excellent storytelling.
