Review: Ghost Town by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson with Tim Waggoner

Ghost Town by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson 
with Tim Waggoner
  • Paperback: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Gallery Books; Original edition (October 9, 2012)
Goodreads Description:

 From the stars of the SyFy network’s popular show Ghost Hunters, the second novel in a new spine-tingling supernatural series.

When Amber, Drew, and Trevor are invited to a paranormal conference in the most haunted town in America, they confront a murderous ghost called the Dark Lady and her human servant: Amber’s abusive ex-boyfriend Mitch. The three friends must stop the Dark Lady before she destroys the entire town, and they'll have the help of a surprising and spooky ally….

My Thoughts:

Ghost Town is a pretty good follow up to the first book in the series, Ghost Trackers. Was is as good as the first? Maybe not, but it was still thoroughly enjoyable. It was interesting to see how life goes on for the three main characters after the ordeal they went through at Lowry House (in the first book). In Ghost Town they travel to a quirky town to speak at a conference. Of course things get deadly and a creepy ghost is behind it all. With the help of a few others Drew, Trevor, and Amber have to figure out a way to stop the ghost known as the Dark Lady from harming even more people.

I really liked the setting of this story. The town is known as the most haunted town in America and the history of it is very tragic. I like that the authors didn't just go for the typical haunted house type of setting again because when stuff starts to happen in certain places it isn't necessarily expected. Another thing I really loved was the characters, especially the new ones. The ally twist was very easy to figure out immediately but it still created a lot of anticipation of when the main characters would figure it out too.

Although I thought this book was great I do wish it was a little scarier. It was spooky but I was hoping for it to be more scary-spooky like the first book. If you liked the first book I don't think you would be disappointed with this one. If you haven't read the first book I recommend you read it before this one so that you can fully appreciate the whole story.

It does seem like an interesting read, though, nevertheless. ;-)
