"Unforgettable."

There are stories destined to be remembered: they touch a sensitive fiber, transport us to the past, or perhaps make us dream about the future. Some combine a little of all this to be unforgettable, as is the case of Road Ghosts: Omnibus Edition, by E. Chris Garrison, a trilogy that tells the adventures of a group of friends interested or believers in the paranormal whose lives are disrupted when a trip goes really bad.
The story begins in Four 'til Late, presenting the group's initial journey. Everything goes well until they begin to have disturbing messages in dreams, strange encounters and even warnings that seem to come from beyond: Some ghosts can become serious demons.
This was the most difficult book to read. There were minor scenes and conversations that didn't seem entirely necessary, leaving a supersaturated and over-looked narration. It lost me that Brett and Liz, the true protagonists of the trilogy, had little importance, although the urban and casual atmosphere of the other characters helped a lot to the fluidity.
In Sinking Down, Brett and Lizzie discover a strange creature that could prove the reality of the paranormal events and the impossible beings with whom they work, but that's directly connected with the dangers they faced in the previous trip. In addition, the group will have to run against the clock to keep it safe, because someone seems to be interested in the creature.

Here everything improves a lot, it is the best book in my opinion. Brett and Liz are the center of everything, they grow a lot as characters, the scenes are more natural, much more interesting and even feel real. I identified with both more than once and lost track of time with each chapter. The end deserves a special mention: Wow, just wow!
Me and the Devil presents a much more solid group that is becoming famous among supernatural circles, but whose ties will be put to the test by the side effects of their latest adventures. Brett doesn't seem to be himself, but it's not only his relationship that is in danger, but his very soul as well.
Here things become darker and more eccentric as the chapters pass, and although the beginning seemed forced, the development was more fluid and better built. Although Liz and Brett are debating stardom, for me she won the first for her key role and ingenuity. As in the second book, the ending was incredible, preceded by an ingenious plot twist.
Along with this, the book includes the short story Spectral Delivery, located at the end of the trilogy, where Enid will discover how much is true about the dark rumors surrounding Brett and his friends. It didn't seem entirely necessary and adds little to the book, but it was an entertaining, creative and enjoyable story.
In general, Road Ghosts: Omnibus Edition is a story that gets better with each chapter and that will definitely be recorded in the memory of readers. It combines a quite particular urban fantasy with drama and humor, making me think that it would be a good TV show or comic series with some adjustments. It can feel heavy at times and overwhelm the reader, but has no waste.

Greetings and hugs!
