{The Gathering: Dan Poblocki}



{Synopsis} – Some houses are more than just haunted… they’re hungry.

Dash, Dylan, Poppy, Marcus, and Azumi don’t know this at first. They each think they’ve been summoned to Shadow House for innocent reasons. But there’s nothing innocent about Shadow House.

Something within its walls is wickedly wrong. Nothing — and nobody — can be trusted. Hallways move. Doors vanish. Ghosts appear. Children disappear.

And the way out?

That’s disappeared, too…

Enter Shadow House… if you dare.

{My thoughts} – Dash, Dylan, Poppy, Marcus, and Azumi are about to take part in a massive life changing event. They need to keep their wits about them, they need to be smarter then the situation around them and they need to try not to be too scared.

Dash and Dylan are twin actors that have been invited to the Shadow House to do a movie production. Poppy was invited be her long lost relative. Marcus was invited to attend as a music prodigy. Azumi was invited for academics. When each of the children arrive they question where everyone is and why they seem to be the only ones around. They wonder around and look from room to room in search of other individuals but they don’t find anyone right away.

They do find other things that are questioning. They also discover things about the house that catches most of them off guard to the point where they don’t want to believe some of the things that they are seeing. Can they trust their eyes or should they continue to question their own sanity levels?

This book is very nicely written and was really hard to put down. I enjoyed reading it and I hope that my kids will one day enjoy it as well. If you’d like to know what happens please don’t hesitate and read this book. It’s really mild horror even for a childrens book and a well written piece of work.

{The APP} – I also downloaded the APP that goes along with the book. It is well thought out and I like the way that it is put together. I like how you need the book to advance in the APP. I also like how it is made like a pick your own ending kind of thing. Very enjoyable!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
