Daniel Sheridan is an engineer’s apprentice on a haunted Mississippi steamer known as the Sadie Queen. His best friend–the apprentice pilot, Cassidy Cochran–also happens to be the girl he’s pining for … and the captain’s daughter. But when it looks like the Sadie Queen might get taken off the river, Daniel and Cassidy have to do whatever they can to stop the ghosts that plague the ship.

Fortunately, there happens to be a Creole gentleman on board by the name of Joseph Boyer–and he just might be able to help them … -Goodreads

My Thoughts
This novella provides just the glimpse into swoon-worthy Daniel Sheridan's past that his fans have clamored for since meeting him in Something Strange and Deadly.  Here we meet the young and in love Daniel. It was sad to see that his love with the young and adventurous Cassidy Cochran is just as ill fated as the one that he has for Elenore.

The ghostly parts of this book and the coming together of the parts of what would later become the ghost busting team of "The Spirit Hunters" is an awesome story.
Knowing the history of Daniel's loss only serves to endear him to readers, and make us want to see his "happily ever after" come true.
