Yes! It’s finally here! Angel of the Overpass is the third novel in Seanan McGuire’s Ghost Roads series, and if you haven’t read it yet, boy, are you missing out! This is a world full of ghost stories, legends, and the rules of the road.

Rose Marshall is a woman, er, ghost, of many names. She’s known as The Girl in the Green Silk Gown, The Phantom Prom Date, The Girl in the Diner. All of these names are her, but none of them fully capture the person she’s become since she died.

After all, that was over fifty years ago. Even dead, Rose has had plenty of time to change since then. Plenty of time to run as well, as Bobby Cross is still chasing her. He is still hunting her. But now the tides are turning, and Cross has lost his protection. Now might just be the time where Rose can finally put an end to the chase.

Wow. Angel of the Overpass is every bit the book I was hoping for, if not more so. I wasn’t sure how Rose’s story would change after what happened to the Crossroads (see the events of the InCryptid series for more about that). Still, I was blown away by the events that unfolded here.

There’s something so poetic about Rose’s story. Not just in the way she’s been named or how her legend has carried over the years. It’s the way she picks up quests and tries to mitigate harm whenever possible. For that reason, it will always be a delight to read about Rose, making Ghost Roads one of my favorite series.

Thanks to #DAW and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
