Ghosts: Witches: Ghosts of Witches: Is this a book for young readers? You Bet!!!

Do you believe in ghosts? Do you believe in witches? Do you believe in ghosts of witches? Is this a book for young readers? You bet it is!!!!
Ghost Prison is a fast paced, 'what's going to happen next' story. It hits the reader with a slamming ending, a wonderful ending in my mind, one that allows the reader to understand what happened without actually showing or telling it.

There is not a lot of flowery imagery in this story. Thank goodness for that was not necessary to see and feel the setting. Additionally, too much description would have slowed the fast pace, fast read of this story.

This is the story of a 15 year old boy who has a new job as a prison guard. Is he guarding prisoners or ghosts? Why, when so many others needed the job, was he chosen? The lead guard warns him of many things, but there is one thing he must NEVER do. Will he remember and follow the older guard's instructions?

Oh, yes...what is an abhuman?

Available Oct. 1, 2013.   I read it through Net Galley. Preorder now through Amazon.

  1. Faye--you are doing a real service to writers by getting the word out about books that are not yet out. Every book needs a boost to be noticed above the clutter--and this sounds like a good one.
