In this spine-tingling new series, the stars of TV’s GHOST HUNTERS introduce readers to a team of paranormal investigators who reunite to defeat a sinister force they unleashed long ago. . . .
For fifteen years, Amber, Drew, and Trevor have barely been able to recall—let alone explain—what happened the terrifying night they decided to explore the old, abandoned Lowry House. According to local legend, the house was cursed by a dark past and inhabited by evil. It burst into flames on the night of their visit, leaving the friends traumatized and nearly dead with only vague memories of the frightening events they had witnessed inside. Now, on the eve of their high school reunion, they have gathered to reopen their investigation and figure out, once and for all, what took place that fateful night . . . before the supernatural entity they escaped threatens to overtake them again.
I came away a little disappointed with this book. I couldn’t help but think of a TV commercial in which Jason and Grant tell the audience, “We know scary.” If they do know scary, they must not be able to write scary, because, Ghost Trackers does not deliver on scary. In my opinion, Ghost Trackers fails to deliver — anything.
The pace of the book sputters and stalls. The main characters are not believable, nor are they interesting. The ending is predictable after reading only a few chapters.
I can’t recommend this book for anyone other than the most devoted Jason and Grant Ghost Hunters collector. In the spirit of Halloween, this would be a trick …
