Paranormal investigator Ellie Jordan faces a new case in an apartment building where a twisted, dangerous entity emerges from closets and doorways to terrorize the residents at night. A powerful spirit, it feeds on fear and takes the shape of its victims' worst nightmares.

Ellie and her mentor Calvin have tried to capture the same entity before, in a different house nearby, an attempt that ended in disaster. Now, with the help of her apprentice Stacey, Ellie must try again to capture the elusive shapeshifting ghost before it can claim another soul as its own.

                    My Thoughts                   

Hands down the creepiest Ellie Jordan yet!

Wow, I thought the Ellie Jordan novels were great before, but J.L. Bryan turned up the scary to a whole new level in the third novel in the Ghost Trapper series, Crawling Darkness!  Ellie and Stacey are called to investigate an entity who is appearing as it's victims worst fears and crawling around the walls. The house where this haunting takes place has been made into multi residential apartment complex, so Ellie Stacey and Jacob have to get the help and support of all of the neighbors in the complex to rid this truly evil spirit!

First off... soooo scary!!! I really had a hard time reading this at night, and it wouldn't have been possible if I had a closet in my bedroom. After reading crawling darkness I couldn't be more grateful that my closet is in my bathroom. Whew! One of the things I liked best about this book was that the entity appeared differently to everyone in the house, I loved hearing each persons individual scary stories about what they saw: Flesh face, space aliens, bloody Mary, it scared me so bad but I loved it. Especially that bloody Mary part, come on you know you have said her name in the bathroom with the lights off. I know I have !

Jacob took a little bit of a backseat in this one but I did love the new introduction of the smoking hot firefighter  ( see what i did there ) A fire fighter is pretty perfect for Ellie and her past.  This series is getting better and better! Can't wait to read book 4 in the Ghost Trapper series, Terminal.

Plot : Amazing, Best book in the Ghost Trapper Series yet! So many twist and turns completely non predictable ! 

Characters: Loved learning more about Stacey and her past, as well as Calvin and how he is tied to this entity hating the house. Looking forward to learning more about others as the series continues ! 

Cover: I love the house in the cover, but she is back to that outfit from book 1 again. When Ellie describes herself in the book when she is on the job she is always covered from head to toe for protection.
