Kalbrandt Institute Archives
Book I: Hauntings
Eva can see other people’s memories like they are her own. Here in the archives, that difference fades alarmingly fast.
Her new job surpasses Eva’s wildest imagination. At the Institute, her psychic ability to ‘read’ objects on touch isn’t weird. It is why they hired her. And they have a vast collection of rare books and ancient artefacts to satisfy her boundless curiosity.
But the reports in the archives contain more than she bargained for. Watching through the eyes of her long-dead colleagues, Eva discovers the dark reality of her dream job: how long before she, too, becomes a memento in her boss’s collection?

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT KIA: HAUNTINGS
"A wonderfully written work by Chris Chelser that hooked me immediately. Eva, the main character, serves as a vehicle for Chelser to tell 5 ghost stories that are all unique and interesting."
– SciFi and Scary Book Reviews
“Overall this sensational read can only be described as the perfect book, it has brilliant, memorable characters, a compelling plot and lastly, it has excellent writing that will keep any reader entertained the whole way through.”
“The reports are wonderfully varied and well documented. The English language used in the book is of a very high level.”
“My favourite story must have been the one in Paris. Those two ghosts had won my heart from the first moment. If one story already can make me as the reader instantly relate to characters depicted, then the rest of the book cannot be bad. And it is not; far from it.”
“I was thrilled with myself for finding this book. The writing is not only excellent, but more importantly, the characters are fabulous: three-dimensional, multi-faceted and realistic. The short stories are all linked through our main character, Eva, who is such an engaging woman, and all the plots offer an original take on the haunting place phenomenon. I will definitely read the next. I only hope I won’t have to wait too long!”
