Book Review - Graveyard Shift
About the Book
A paranormal fantasy-adventure in which death is only the beginning.
Ill-mannered spooks and fearsome monsters populate the alternative London of this charming paranormal adventure.
When Ben Harvester meets the mysterious Mr. October in London's Highgate Cemetery, he has no idea what a strange and dramatic turn his life is about to take. But Ben soon discovers that Mr. October works for the Ministry of Pandemonium, a secret organization responsible for tracking down lost souls and guiding them to the afterlife. And Mr. October wants him to be his new recruit.
As Ben's apprenticeship begins, his eyes are opened to a new world of wonder -- a world where magic is real and ghosts haunt every crime scene, accident site, and hospital corridor. But with the wonder comes horror. Because the Ministry is not the only organization hunting spirits of the dead. The ghoulish Lords of Sundown want those spirits for their own sinister reasons. And as far as they're concerned, Ben's just chosen the wrong side in a very dangerous war.
My Take on the Book
This was a fun book that brought out the ghosts and ghouls while still offering a ton of mystery and fun as well. My daughter loves monsters, ghosts and ghouls and has for years and this story completely engaged her from beginning to end. What was telling was that from the moment she stated she did not get side tracked into reading another book, instead, she stuck with this and was done in no time. IN the end she was asking whether there were other books from the same author, a great sign in my book!
