    This is the type of book that will leave your heart racing.

    John was just a normal sixteen year old but when he goes through his family tree, he finds the families dark secret. As John looks deeper into his families history, he will find him self fighting the demon of his families past.
    John Proud, who's sixteen, has to do a project over his family tree but when he tells his grandfather, he tells him about his great-great- great- grandfather John Proud. But when he goes to John Proud's grave, his life is in jeopardy as John Proud comes back to life.
    Over all this was a great book. This is a perfect book if you like haunting or mystery type of book. But if it was me I would change the ending of this book. This is a awesome book but I don't suggest to buy it.but check it out from your library .
