    2. The Ghost Finders of Carnacki Institute have faced off against some powerful spirits. This time, they are having to stop an immensely powerful beast that can literally change reality to suit its own needs. If they fail, which seems to be a given, the Earth as we know it will end.Simon R. Green is one of my favorite writers. I loved his Nightside series. The Ghost Finders seems to be a logical next step for me. But it has some problems. The menaces are so huge and while JC, Melody, and Happy Jack [...]

    3. If anyone other than Simon R. Green had written this, I would have given up after the second chapter. I have serious issues with the Ghostfinders, as a series, and as a group of fictional people, and I only keep reading because I'm a completist. Well, ok, Green's off-days are better than a lot of people's on-days, but I hold this truth to be self-evident: the Ghostfinders books are no better than any other airport bookstore novel. On to my complaints.As a series, I hate the Ghostfinders, because [...]

    4. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasySimon R. Green’s stories tend to have a dark twisted humor to them that makes the at times graphic horror of what is happening more manageable. VOICES FROM BEYOND definitely is classic Simon R. Green with the difference being that these protagonists have slightly less super powers than his other books. I liked that as it made the story feel more intense and their victory even more earned.Now that isn’t to say there are no paranormal abilities in the [...]

    5. Very different to what I thought it would be. Very different from the Nightside books! Enjoyed it, though it was a bit heavy going at times (That was just my mood). But it's a story that doesn't go so fast you wonder how on earth it could possibly happen. If you're wanting something a little 'meatier' to get your teeth into, give this a go.

    6. This really felt like a placeholder novel. Nothing was really resolved or addressed to fit the larger narrative. I don't know why this series feels so different than Green's others, but each books just feels shallow.

    7. Definitely getting darker and edgier, but the human dimension is also growing, much as it does in the Night Side. The formula is balanced by some nice complexity.

    8. These just get better and better as the series continues. This one even legitimately freaked me out for a little while there, Green is perfecting his haunting a with creepy results.

    9. Another rollicking fast-paced adventure from Green. The Nightside is my favorite series, but anything he writes is fun to read.

    10. This series has been very interesting to read. Simon does a good job with the 3 main characters everytime. Happy the medium, Melody who enjoys her instruments and JC the lead. Kim is back as the ghost of the group and works well with JC. There are 2 main hauntings in this particular book. I was able to read this book on a plane trip and completed within 2 hrs.

    11. Ach, Mensch, ich wollte das Buch so dringend lesen: Letztes Jahr gekauft, kurz darauf angefangen und dann unterbrochen, weil etwas anderes, dringenderes dazwischen kam. Nun ist bereits März und ich bin endlich dazu gekommen, "Voices from Beyond" zu Ende zu lesen. Lektion gelernt, ich bin kein Parallel-Leser."Voices from Beyond" ist bereits der 5. Band der "Ghost Finders"-Reihe von Simon R. Green und ich finde, sie hat etwas. Zugegeben, der Humor ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig und wird wahrsch [...]

    12. This 5th instalment of the Ghost Finders series follows the same basic pattern of the previous books - 1/4 of the novel taken up with case A, then the other 3/4 taken up by the unrelated and usually less interesting case B.Case A here feels like the movie The Quiet Ones - we have a professor with 4 university students trying to prove ghosts don't exist by playing with a Ouija Board in a paranormal hot spot. Our team of Ghostfinders are called in when things go wrong and the 4 students are left a [...]

    13. I agree with the reviewer who said that they've definately stepped over into Drood Jurisdiction in this and the previous book. And Green missed a golden opportunity there. He could have done a crossover with the Secret Histories, had Eddie and family enter into the picture, render aid to the beleaguered Ghostfinders "suddenly and violently and all over the place", then yank them up for a "Come to Eddie" meeting and tell them to focus, dammit, and FINALLY deal with the threat within their own org [...]

    14. I have to say that at certain points this book annoyed me. It was patently obvious who the big bad was, but no one seemed to have put it together until almost the last part of the book!!!! Very annoying, much of this story could have been shorter. Better editing needed as sometimes the story can be so long winded. I would of been more inclined to read that they had figured out who the big bad was, and then worked on a solution of trying to stop it!!!The walk in the park with the head of the Carn [...]

    15. Simon R Green continues in true form with this new addition to the Ghost Finders series. The series started off rather slow but picked up steam with the third book.There were some really creepy moments in the book and I couldn't read it alone when I was alone in bed at night. All those suggestions of something terrible lurking, an evil which would mercilessly destroy everything and the atmosphere created were excellent horror. It was only when talks of a cruel Beast and an outworldly portal star [...]

    16. A fast-paced ride to a possessed radio station that leaves the Ghost-Finder crew dealing with ghastly voices and horrific visions. This book is a wonderful addition to the series that actually answers a few questions about JC and Kim. Unfortunately, it also raises more questions. If I wasn't already hooked on the series, this book would do it fir me, because now I really want to know the answers! Well done, Simon. Keep them coming!

    17. Simon R. Green scared the Hell out of me with this exciting new Ghost Finders novel. The idea of a haunted radio station is very original and the way Green executed is was nothing short of brilliant. The visions of an apocalyptic world were incredibly vivid and disturbing, but the witty dialogue and the likeable cast of characters make the reading of this book fast and pleasant.Heartily recommended.

    18. With this newest Ghost Finders novel, we gain a little more insight into the Director of the Carnacki Institute as well as see the Ghost Finders prepare with a fight for their grudge match against the Flesh Undying. Dry humor and interesting characters make this book very readable. I'm looking forward to the next book and hoping that we see an issue take the Ghost Finders to the Nightside or against the Droods. A fantastic encompassing Universe.

    19. I've enjoyed this series since book one and this one didn't disappoint. Although I want a more complete ending to the first case I thought the second case was freaky enough. My only problem with this series is Happy and his use of drugs, I just feel like by now they should be working more on getting him off than letting him use more and more. I only wish the books came out a little faster.

    20. As with a lot of Simon R. Green's books there isn't much going on. This one seemed to drag on a bit with the same tired dialog banter between the three main characters. But I will say Simon's medicre books are still better than most other writer's books in the same genre. I will continue to read his next book just because they have an entertaining quality about them.

    21. Character growth that had begun in the previous book seemed to backslide here. It rather felt like Simon decided he wanted to wrap up this series, figured out how he planned to end it which required the odd backslide.

    22. I loved it. A non stop thrill ride. I like that we get to see more into Melody and Happy Jacks relationship/how they feel about each other. I can't wait for the next one with the way this one is left off it promises to be game changing.

    23. Wow! Simon R. Green really raised the bar for the Ghost Finders with this latest installment. Generally, I prefer the Nightside or Drood novels, but this kept me on the edge of my seat, and I found parts of the novel to be truly chilling and creepy. Can't wait for the next one!

    24. Loved it. think SRG's writing is very good and enjoy the ghost finders immenselyn't wait for the next one.
