Title: Camp Hell (PsyCop #5)
Author Name: Jordan Castillo Price
Publication Date & Length: December 10, 2008 – 296 pgs
Victor Bayne honed his dubious psychic skills at one of the first psych training facilities in the country, Heliotrope Station, otherwise known as Camp Hell to the psychics who’ve been guests behind its razorwire fence.
Vic discovered that none of the people he remembers from Camp Hell can be found online, and there’s no mention of Heliotrope Station itself, either. Someone’s gone through a lot of trouble to bury the past. But who?
*sigh* normally I talk about the book first then the narrator… but I just have to momentarily swoon over Gomez Pugh. Seriously… You add something special to these books!!
Anywho… I still fully stand by my previous statement that this is my FAVORITE COUPLE EVER… and quite possibly my favorite series. I simply adore Jacob and his reactions to Vic…. and the new revelations we find out in this book are SO exciting for me. I literally bounced in my chair in glee.
There is a lot of little things we learn in this book, just like every other book in this series. I literally think at the end of each book “How did Jordan Castillo-Price do it again?!?!’ I’m always simply blown away by how detailed and amazing these books are.
Knowing that the end of the series is closing in on me I’m already feeling a major book hangover… quite possibly the worst of all book hangovers ever.
This book was another really awesome addition to this series!
With this book we get more of Vic “which I have to say he is one of my favorite characters” who is trying to find out more about what happened to him while he was at Camp Hell. So he must trust people that may not be the best decision to make while he investigates more ghosts for his job with the police force.
There was just so much going on in this book but the way everything came together was just so awesome! This book had me on the edge of my seat as soon as I started it and I could not put it down until the end.
You also get so more of Jacob and Vic together which I love them as a couple! Yes they do have their problems but every relationship does from time to time. Which brings me to the steam which was off the charts hot between these two.
You also meet new characters in this book. Some good and some not so good.
I don’t want to spoil this book for anyone else because it was so good you really need to read this series for yourself. So I will leave this review with I 100% loved this book and I would recommend this series!
Vic is still searching for answers throughout this story. He was the majority of this book, while Jacob was a very minimal part. I do wish that we had seen more of Jacob. However, the chemistry between these two was still off the charts and the way that Price was able to develop Vic’s story was innovative.
Vic learns that he has more talent than he remembered, confronts his past through seeking out people who may not necessarily be allies, but are no longer threats and then has to deal with a new situation with his paranoia.
I liked how you were reading flash backs and then integrating those memories in to present day. I felt that it was a very organic way to develop the story. The secondary characters in this story were fairly strong, and I did like that we were able to see the characters from the previous story too.
Overall, this was a good mystery. I felt that it answered some questions, but developed others.
‘Jacob held me so hard I was worried he might crack a rib, and he crushed his mouth to mine, filled my mouth with his tongue. I felt his fingers dig into my back, even through my jeanjacket and two sweatshirts.’ This is why I love Jordan Castillo Price and her words. *swoon*
The first book, Among The Living, hooked me in and hasn’t let up.
I think I may have a slightly harder crush on Jacob. There is something about him that is so masculine and animalistic that gives him an edge, and to me, has created this strong, intense reaction to him. It makes me giddy when he is involved in any scene!!!!
Jordan Castillo Price likes to keeps us on our toes. Camp Hell is a crazy and chaotic ride with spooky, suspense-filled intensity that kept me on edge. We get to see glimpses of a younger Vic. There were parts that hurt my heart and found it difficult to read them (not the ghost scenes). But, I persevered and read on through! Worth every cringe!!
Still loving this series and will definitely read the rest!!!
