As if High school wasn't difficult enough.Add you typical bully (Cody Sloan), that strikes fear in your heart with just the sound of his voice.Being an outcast is hard, never feeling like you fit in and your closest friend from way back.You know the one...she always has your back and understands you without having to speak a word.Now add a mystery that you have to find how the trick works,a mysterious girl that has captured your fancies,but trying to get to know her better will be a dangerous quest you undertake, for you must know more.
In this book we find Scott Maskey (Spooky) and his BF Sally.Scotts Dad Don is the only Tatoo Artist in tow.Scott wished some of his dads coolness would have been passed down to him but no such luck.Scott was an outcast. Sally only was due to association with Scott.She could have fit in with the Cool kids if she had a desire to.
Scott has always loved Haunted houses and spooky things.He had read in the paper a town over in Taylor's End was welcoming the public to an Open Haunted House Gaultier House.Said to be the best real haunt of the likes you have never seen before.
Scott had begged Sally to drive.The first thing they noticed when they arrived, the whole town was wearing Awesome mask dressed and spoke in the old Victorian English, it was truly a delightful experience. That was when he met Babbette Gaultier and her cousin Timely, although he did not yet know their names.Scott was so taken back by the tricks, he had made up his mind to go back and try and figure out how there were pulling off tricks of this magnitude.This is where the story really takes off and the mysteries start to unfold. We meet three bad guys if the Kind Skorsdan is the worst and the leader of this Mis Ju fist group, then there is Valiskil and Comnical.Pick up your copy, you will be glad you did. It is a fast-paced and suspenseful book. Jack Wallen is a Master Author that know how to suck you into a story right off the bat and keep you waiting with baited breath to see what is going to happen next.
Like most of the books writhen by the genial Jack Wallen this Story is also a layered work of art!
You can read it as it is, a Story about good Monsters that are hidyng behing masks of flesh and Magic to allow them to blend in. About a Young guy, named Scott that discovers love, friendschip and tolerance. The power to rise his voice when he thinks the cause is just and the abilithy to distinguish good from evil.
It is a Story of love and Courage, of Halloween and being diferent.Its the Kind of book that i am sure you can love no mather if you are 16 or 30tish.
Jack Wallen made me remember the first time i was in love, he got in touch with the first tender Feelings that Bloom only once in live in each ones Soul. That Feeling that you are whole only when the other is near you, that you find yourself in his-her eyes.
This Story is so wonderfull because it is so not what you would expect it to be.
The '''prince'' has to turn into a frog to notice true love and find the princess. Ist is about seeing , noticing what is around you, being able to see true the vail of habbit and noticing that fairy sparkle in the eyes of the one that was always there to hold your hand , no matter what.. It is about taking a wrong step, starting on a wrong way , and still be able to to gett the right turn and find your way. You gett this wonderful feeling, afther you finish the book that magic can be real, can be part of your life and that love is the biggest power of earth. Ist about getting to know someone that seams diferent. Each one has a mask, not litherary, but we all want to blend in, especially in our teens, we just want to be small, go with the crowd. But, being diferent is not something bad, and only when you find the courage to be how you are, a geek, weird, boring, intelectual, pretty, ugly, how ever, just then you will be ready to find the one that will hold your hand and stand tall next to you no mather what.

Still, Scott falls for the Beauty..Will they be together? Read the book and find it out!
I absolutely loved this! Another brilliantly written novel by the Zombie King - Jack Wallen.
An amazing book aimed at young adults, yet keeping a thirty something 'old adult' like me completely engaged:-)
It includes horror, action, plot twists and humour in some parts.
The book is very life like, for instance,
the feeling of dread that something may go wrong, walking into a haunted house, the excitement over Halloween & the truth behind what we all see as normality. The plot, characters and prose style beat most of the books aimed at adults, which I've read for quite a while.
This is a gripping, fast paced story with plenty to hold your attention. I couldn't wait to turn to the next page and find out what happened. It's a mixer of reality & fantasy - the real world - with the spice of fiction.
Really am looking forward to the next instalment - especially after that cliffhanger! (No Spoilers!)
