Night of the Ghoul (Urban Ghoul #1) by Graeme Ing


Earlier this month, I read the ebook edition of Night of the Ghoul (Urban Ghoul #1) by Graeme Ing. Graeme Ing is a new to me author and I enjoy discovering new to me authors and/or genres that look promising to me.

I was able to download Night of the Ghoul (Urban Ghoul #1) by Graeme Ing for FREE to my iPad from Amazon. 

Below is my honest, unbiased review for Night of the Ghoul (Urban Ghoul #1) by Graeme Ing.

Night of the Ghoul (Urban Ghoul #1) by Graeme Ing is fast paced and action packed from start to finish!! This novella (124 pages) has an interesting storyline filled with plot twists that keeps readers interested throughout. I also loved that there wasn't a cliffhanger ending to this novella.

I think the writing overall was decent for Night of the Ghoul. I wish that more of the backstory pertaining to the characters and the world in which they live in had been flushed out in a bit more detail than they were.

Rachel, the main character, is definitely not a shrinking violet. She is not someone to mess with in the slightest... I guess she may be best described as 'a badass'.

Plenty of blood and gore within the pages of Night of the Ghoul (Urban Ghoul #1) by Graeme Ing. Also, quite a few sex scenes too if you're into that sort of thing.

I'm glad I explored a new to me author. But in all honesty, I doubt I'll continue reading the 'Urban Ghoul' series. It wasn't my cup of tea.

Below is a summary for Night of the Ghoul (Urban Ghoul #1) by Graeme Ing from the author's website:
Killing is easy; relationships not so much

Welcome to 2050. I’m Rachel, and there’s a monster inside me that makes me a perfect assassin. Like everyone else, I’m indentured to a Family. I do their dirty work.

Someone’s pet geneticist toyed with my sister, and now she’s not human either. When I find them, they’re going to make her right, and then I’m going to tear them apart. Tania’s the only real family I have. Killing whoever gets in my way is the easy part; enlisting my ex-lover’s help — not so much. I don’t have time to dredge up those old emotions.

Night of the Ghoul is the first in a series of four and a mashup of Urban Fantasy, Dystopian, and Cyberpunk.

Warning: This book contains adult language, explicit sexual content, and some depictive scenes of intense blood and gore.

I am giving Night of the Ghoul (Urban Ghoul #1) by Graeme Ing a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. Well, that sounds Not really my thing but to each his/her own. It's great that you enjoy it.

    1. Ghoulish indeed! I normally do not read these types of novels either. I will not be reading anymore of the books in the series as it isn't my thing either.

      I simply gave this read a fair shake in terms of a review, even if it isn't normally something out of my interest or comfort zone.
