The cast of characters were great. I felt transported back into this book. The scenes were full of intense dark mystery. Murder, mayhem, and the paranormal can be found on every page. I loved how the ghost siblings were close and kind. The other two brothers were also just as close. It will take a lot for the young Matt to help keep everyone safe. Overall, this is a series fit for middle grade and teens. I am an adult and loved every moment of this entertaining novel.
