Overview

"An exceptional collection of ghost and haunting encounters—made even better because of Michelle Belanger's firsthand experience with them, on top of her extensive knowledge of the phenomena."
—Loyd Auerbach, MS, parapsychologist and director of the Office of Paranormal Investigations

Michelle Belanger's chilling collection of true ghost stories will take you further than you've ever gone before into the realm of spirits, astral entities, and dark forces. Along the way, you'll encounter haunted violins, dark fey, hell hounds, haunted cremains, and even an astral vampire summoned by an aspiring magician who becomes its unwitting target.

Whether she's being accosted by an angry spirit who recently committed suicide or being driven out of haunted woods in a very Hitchcock-esque manner, Belanger's hard-won expertise and insightful commentary add both depth and context to her truly frightening—and sometimes dangerous—haunted experiences.

    Worth A Read

    I enjoyed reading this book. All the stories seem to have a purpose and lead into one another. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the paranormal.

    4.5 stars of awesome ghost tales

    Haunting Experiences gets a 4.5 star rating. I really enjoyed this book, mainly because the stories weren't about nuisance ghosts. Most of the ghostly phenomenon shows only go to locations where unruly ghosts are and don't try to document locations where the ghosts are relatively harmless. I LOVED Belanger's sense of humor throughout the book. These stories felt very real to me as they didn't have squeaky clean endings, and IMHO those stories about ghosts that do have nice tight endings are usually works of fiction. I will definitely be checking out more of Belanger's work.
