Review! Ghosts in the Mirror by Joyce Mangola

Sixteen-year-old Jeremy Riggs has lived his life in and out of the hospital. While the doctors are clueless as to why he lapses into comas, he is well aware of his unique ability to merge with a wandering spirit. With his own soul too weak to sustain life, it's the only thing keeping him alive.

Waking up from a coma a year after being found at the county dump—next to the remains of the last spirit to inhabit him—Jeremy finds the newest spirit is nothing like the previous ones. It's bent on revenge and has the will to take control over his body. With the police lining him up as a murder suspect and an ancient evil pursuing him, Jeremy must help the ghost hitching a ride in his body find eternal rest without seeing his own soul snuffed out

Jeremy Riggs is a vehicle for spirits. When we meet him, he has awoken from a year-long coma, the most recent in a life full of comas. With an uncooperative ghost hitching a ride in his body, he needs to figure out how to help the newest hitchhiker soul rest.
Ghosts in the Mirror is a unique paranormal tale.

Though it was confusing at times and the pace wasn’t as steady as I would like, I truly like the edgy paranormal feel of it.
My biggest pet peeve was the typos and grammatical errors. For example, seeing “your” instead of “you’re” drives me absolutely bonkers, and these errors distracted from the story.
Still, if you enjoy a paranormal tale, I would recommend this story.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Joyce Mangola has been writing for most of her life, spinning outlandish tales since she was twelve. She is a multi-published author over several genres and Joyce is her pen name for the young adult side. Writing will always be the one dream she pursued relentlessly until she succeeded with her first short story publication. She hasn’t looked back since. Besides bringing to life the different characters in her head, she enjoys drawing and playing the flute. Though a Pittsburgh native, she calls Carlisle, Pennsylvania her home for over twenty years now and has no plans of moving—unless it’s back to Pittsburgh, of course. She’s a proud mother of two sister rescue cats, Brine and Ariel, and Bailey the wonder kitten. She encourages anyone who has the heart to adopt a furry companion. Give them love and receive it back tenfold.
