Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old spirit medium Emily Chambers has a problem. Actually, she has several. As if seeing dead people isn't a big enough social disadvantage, she also has to contend with an escaped demon and a handsome ghost with a secret past. And then there's the question of her parentage. Being born an entire year after her father's death (yes, a year) and without the pale skin of other respectable English ladies, Emily is as much a mystery as the dead boy assigned to her.

Jacob Beaufort's spirit has been unable to cross over since his death. It might have something to do with the fact he was murdered. Or it might not. All he knows is he has been assigned by the Otherworld's administrators to a girl named Emily. A girl who can see and touch him. A girl who released a shape-shifting demon into the mortal realm. Together they must send the demon back before it wreaks havoc on London. It should be a simple assignment, but they soon learn there's nothing simple when a live girl and a dead boy fall in love.

    "Unfinished..."

    There isn't an ending. The book literally stops with NOTHING finished. I feel like the author just gave up mid way midway

    "needed more"

    The book leaves you feeling like there are missing parts from the story which is a bit frustrating.

    "That's really how your ending the book?"

    Not fond of stories that leave you hanging. Guess there will be a book 2 to buy to finish the story.

    Story
    "Ended, Just Over, is Resolution Gone?"
    Would you try another book from C. J. Archer and/or Gemma Dawson?

    Nope, done. I was never engaged with the characters and the ending, left dangling, was poorly executed


    Would you ever listen to anything by C. J. Archer again?

    No. The obvious, "sell the sequel," was incredibly poorly written. In a series, each book should be a chapter in a larger book. This was falling in love with a ghost with no resolution, no real intrigue and while many writers do write longer books that are broken into sequels, each book should stand on it's own as well. This book did not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her accent was good, she did a credible job with a badly written book.


    What character would you cut from The Medium?

    All of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I love books and books with sequels, that make me want more. For example, Madeleine L'Engle's books are part of a whole, but each book has a clear resolution and almost demands the reader learn more. This book, not so much. I am sure if the entirety of the story were presented I might have found it bearable, but as it is? I wish I could return it. I felt my money was taken for a quarter of a book. The characters interesting, but why was the sister the way she was? No exploration of the secondary characters, just all main character stuff. No understanding, or care from the main character about whether her skills affected anyone on the other side, or this one. No moments of humor. It felt like she was trying, but she does not write that way. I was really unhappy.

    Story
    "Love Story not a Ghost Story."

    This book started out with such a great foundation, the sisters were engaging, Jacob interesting and mysterious, but then about half way through it went for 'demon' chasing to sappy love story without the 'love' part. It was like listening to two separate books in one sitting. I didn't hate it, but I don't care about what happens next, especially after such a anti-climatic ending. Nothing is resolved, not entirely, but instead of leaving you wanting for more, it simply leaves you annoyed.

    Story
    "A period piece, without period characters"
    Where does The Medium rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was enjoyable and an easy listen and probably one I'll listen to again as it's undemanding but engaging. I'd place it in the 70 percent category


    What other book might you compare The Medium to and why?

    Study in silk? Maybe but not really. Emily is engaging but a less demanding character but both have that period feel, of an age that was captivated with ghostly spirituality as a psuedo science.


    What does Gemma Dawson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think she hit the characters very well


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nope, not really just wasn't that kind of book


    Any additional comments?

    Nice light engaging story.
