Nicki Huntsman Smith’s newest series. A supernatural horror thriller!
Jillian’s new normal — a life on the run and a blaze-orange bullseye on her back. When supernatural creatures realized she could see them, she became Monster Enemy #1. The price she pays for being special? To be haunted and hunted and never allowed to linger in one place for long.
Jillian’s old life as a respected FBI agent lies in ashes, and this new one takes her to the edge of sanity. While she stays one step ahead of the monsters most people can’t see, her twin brother Jackson, also gifted with ‘monster sight,’ is holed up in a secret research facility where the fiends and ghouls can’t reach him.
But they can get to her…if she slows down, gets careless, or stumbles into a demon lair.
Jillian’s only hope is to stay off their radar long enough to master the art of monster-killing.
There is no escaping this new, terrifying reality. If she wants to live, she has to fight. And if she wants to get her normal life back, she must kill them all.

Jillian barely escaped Forsaken Harbor, Alaska, in one piece. Now, she finds herself in rural Wyoming, settling into a hundred-year-old house filled with musty old furniture and an antique doll for a roommate. Surrounding her in all directions are acres of hay, desolate prairie, and a cornfield long overdue for harvesting…and overseen by a decrepit scarecrow. It’s the perfect setting for a spooky Halloween, until strange and terrifying episodes begin to happen.
What has she stumbled upon in the Wind River Range? What happened here generations ago that resonates so powerfully in the region and compels the residents to behave in bizarre and alarming ways?
Should she leave now while there’s still time? Or stick it out and learn more about the dangerous and mystical supernatural world that upended her life a year ago?
Jillian Beaufort is not quitter. You can bet your last bottle of Sam Adams she’ll find some answers…or die trying.
Jackson, no longer a prisoner of the Rosalind Project, but rather a willing ally, joins forces with Dr. Walter Richter and his beautiful and brilliant daughter, Dr. Stacey Richter. Utilizing resources Jillian can only dream about, Jackson and his new partners embark on a quest to identify monsters and unmask demons. The scientists want to study them, but Jackson has different plans.
He has been grappling with monsters far longer than anyone else, and he knows one truth better than anyone: The only good monster is a dead monster.
Troubled Spirits, Book Two in A Monstrous Dread series, is a white-knuckled thrill ride that will take you deeper into the terrifying world of Jillian and Jackson Beaufort. Don’t get left behind!
