Author: LG Nixon

Genre: Young Adult Fiction/Religious/Christian Fantasy/Mysteries & Detective Stories

Release Date: December, 2021

Ghost hunters, Lucy Hornberger and Schuyler Williams, are chasing ghosts through their school. As they vanquish one ghost, another ghost appears, and Lucy gets blamed for the destruction. She soon learns someone has been cursed, but who?

Darnathian and his Irredaemon forces are still after the Lucy’s artifact, called the Spectrescope. It allows her to see and track spirits. It also hides the Spirit Sword that vanquishes the daemons. Darnathian is determined to learn the source of the Spectrescope’s ancient magic, unlock its secrets and find the Life Tree. If he can eliminate Lucy Hornberger, all the better.

Using the power of the magical artifacts that were in the trunk she purchased from the vendor at the flea market, Lucy and Schuyler must end the hauntings, break the curse, protect the Spectrescope, and do it all without getting expelled from school.

About the Author

Meet LG Nixon, author, coffee connoisseur, motorcycle enthusiast, and collector of strange artifacts. With her zany imagination, she fuses a page-turning fantasy with a haunting theme and turns it into a spirit filled adventure with quirky and likable characters. After a long career, she left the workplace behind and turned to writing. Her stories are lighthearted but carry an underlying message of the importance of a Biblical worldview. She researches and writes full-time from her home in Michigan where she prowls the night star gazing and watching for a supernatural event. LG loves to ski, ride motorcycles, travel, and fly small planes; but no bungee jumping, thank you very much.

More from LG Nixon

I’ve always had zany and quirky imagination. Growing up in a creaky old house with a grandmother who told stories of ghostly visitations, I was curious. As a child, I filled journals with mystery and detective stories.


These days I write about ghosts and spirits to entertain, and use scripture as dialogue to portray God’s love and forgiveness, our hope of redemption, and the reality of a supernatural dimension just beyond our perception.


Why would a Christian author write about ghosts? Because scripture is filled with ghosts and spirits, angels, and demons along with some amazing creatures. God uses incredible imagery to capture our imagination and draw us deeper into His word. I love to study scripture because I always find new truths that go beyond the scope of imagination.


My writing has grown from my love for Jesus and a desire to share my faith with hope and encouragement. The Issachar Gatekeeper series is designed to show young adults in a fun, adventurous way the impact Christian principles can have on their lives and to deepen their understanding of the world around them.


Our heroine, Lucy, has a wonderful neighbor, Mrs. McGoo, who always comes through to save the day with her delicious chocolate chip cookies. Lucy’s best friend, Schuyler Williams, says, “A really good chocolate chip cookie is nearly a spiritual experience, don’t you think?” So, we are sharing this recipe with you so you can sit, relax, and share some with a friend. Enjoy!


What a fun adventure the author has written for young adults that will give them a look at ghost hunting. Lucy and Schuyler have their hands full at school as a teenage ghost is causing havoc. What does this ghost want?  I liked the reference to the armor of God as Lucy prepares to get rid of the pesky ghosts floating around in the  school. They have a sarcastic attitude and enjoy when Lucy gets blamed for the destruction at the school.  

I loved the relationship Lucy has with her mom. She knows her mom is having a hard time and wants to help. What a great example Lucy is to her friends by showing them that families stick together and help each other out. I know that act of compassion warms her mother’s heart knowing she has kids that support her. 

The story continues from the first book with Lucy and her friend Schuyler facing dark spirits that try to distract them from the truth. I loved the  way the author weaves faith throughout the story to what the Bible says about darkness and how it tries to distract you. Fear is not allowed in this story as the two girls go up against evil. Are they ready for the  battle against good vs evil? Lucy is warned that “the dark forces are always scheming and plotting ways to attack the kingdom and our followers.” 

Lucy needs to be aware of her surroundings at all times and keep vigilant over her  area. It reminds me how the enemy looks for a subtle way into our lives to attack our minds. Now is the time to stand firm and not allow anything to keep your eyes from the One. Lucy must remember that whatever choices she makes it can change her destiny. 

Within the story you will find  valuable lessons we can all learn from. Being anxious and  worry is from the enemy. We need to follow Jesus and know that “he has plans to prosper us, not to hurt us.”  Isn’t it nice to know that we are loved unconditionally. We must look past our circumstances and see that there is hope. 

There are quite a few surprises in the story and Lucy has a lot to overcome. Our lives find us dealing with obstacles that take us away from where we  are suppose to be. In the trials we go thru we can see that it can be used for good. Each time I go thru a battle, I learn more about how God is growing me and strengthening my faith. 

The author has created a story where ghosts abound and mysterious things  happen. Just like the last book I didn’t care for all the ghosts and magic being  used. It may be something that the younger kids will enjoy and find within the pages a direction that points them  to God. Overall a good story that some can interpret to leading us from darkness into the light. Be sure and pay attention to when Lucy is able to help someone who has been grieving for awhile. All along  Lucy thought this person did not like her. It is a breakthrough that  leads  to healing from the thoughts that caused bitterness and despair.

“Only the truth can protect you and guide you.”
