After a near-death experience caused by the park’s star haunted attraction, Ben has come to Ghostland seeking to reconnect with his former best friend Lilian, whose post-traumatic stress won’t let her live life to the fullest. She’s come at the insistence of her therapist, Dr. Allison Wexler, who tags along out of professional curiosity, eager to study the new tech’s psychological effect on the user.

But when a computer virus sets the ghosts free and the park goes into lockdown, the trio find themselves trapped in an endless nightmare.

With time running short and the dead quickly outnumbering the living, the survivors must tap into their knowledge of horror and video games to escape… or become Ghostland’s newest exhibits.

Featuring an interactive “Know Your Ghosts” guide and much more, Ghostland is over 400 pages of thrills and terror!

You can tell just how much work went into the production of this book, and the final result is perfection.

Don’t forget to grab your Ghostland map when you walk through the gates!

The details of the theme park, and it’s many exhibits, made me feel like I could just put down my book and go buy a ticket to see it myself. I can’t tell you how excited I am to go check out the official Ghostland website, and keep the park a reality in my mind! I’m also looking forward to checking out the Gallagher Brothers, and their ‘ghost hunting’ escapades – although I’m admittedly a little worried that they won’t be what my mind has made them into.

I really like how the footnotes, and excerpts from the interactive Know Your Ghosts guide were implemented – they didn’t distract from the story if you weren’t interested in checking them out, but so interesting and informative that they enhanced the whole experience for me.
The story that is in the center of it all is a rollercoaster of it’s own! I adore Ben & Lil, and if there is a way for their story to continue… I can’t wait to see where it goes!

Whatever you do, please don’t overlook all of the work that went into this! It’s incredible.

THE GIVING OF THINGS COLD & CURSED by Terry M. West

The Giving of Things Cold & Cursed (Single Shot Short Story Series Book 9)The Giving of Things Cold & Cursed by Terry M. West
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Johnson’s are keepers of cursed objects. Baker and his uncle are like Sam & Dean Winchester, hunting down these rare pieces to keep the world safe from evil.
After his uncles death he arrives at the deceased’s apartment; what he finds when he gets there chills him to the core.
The Giving of Things Cold & Cursed is the most recent short story that I’ve read by Terry M. West, and they all have managed to turn the creep-o-meter up to an eleven so far.
