Ghost Trackers by Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson and Tim Waggoner



Description:
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.
 This is a work of fiction brought to you by the same guys who investigate ghosts in Syfy's Ghost Hunters. In this book you have 3 teens who loved to investigate hauntings within their town. One night they went to the scariest house in town. Afterword, the house burned down and the three friends ended up in a comatose state for a short while. However, it resulted in all of them losing their memories of what happened that night and even some of their high school years.

In the years to come they all dealt or ran away from the holes in their memory. Traumatized, even by what they do not remember, it all affected them in some way. Then out of the blue a friend starts the ball rolling in getting the three back together for a high school reunion. What happens next is what will put you on the edge of your seat.

In this book you know who is messing with them and even some of the whys. However, you don't know how it is all going to play out in the end. That is what made this book fun. There are scary parts, but it wasn't what struck me about this book. It was the characterizations. You got to know many of the characters from their childhood in a complete way. You got to see their teenage black and white view of them (and of their world) and then you got to know how mistaken you were. It really made the book more emotional that way. Oh and those that miss these types of books because of the lack of romance won't be dissatisfied. There is a sweet budding romance that had be brewing for their whole lives. It was a sweet contrast to the darkness going on about them.

I give this book 4 stars. It is a great character book and it has it's on the edge of your seat moments. The ending is fulfilling and looks like there could possibly be more in a series. I would pick up the next one when it comes calling. :)

  20. Coming from Jason and Grant, two people with a boatload of experience between them, and adding in Tim Waggoner, who's notorious in horror circles, I'm curious to see how this book is! I can't imagine it being anything less than stellar, with the factual knowledge Jason and Grant bring to the table.

    Best,

  30. I'll be honest, I've only caught the show a few times. It is always on in the afternoon here, and sadly there is more going on, BUT I love ghost stories. I spent my teen life in Rhode Island. I lived in a house in Johnston Rhode Island. We lived about three blocks from a graveyard that we would get to by walking down a dirt road through the woods around the corner of my house. It was our hang out during the day and the place that would freak us out at night. The house in Johnston was freaky too. I have often wondered if it is still creepy and if the owners experienced the things our family did in that place. It was seriously spooky. I should probably watch Ghost Hunters more and find out if they have ever gone there.

    Anyway, thank you for the give away. This looks like a great story.
