Description from the Publisher: Description from the Publishers: It's almost Halloween, and twelve-year-old AJ Zantony's world is threatened by an ancient curse that releases wicked pirates who had been trapped for centuries in his Aunt Zsofia's creepy mansion, Zala Manor. The pirates--a vampire count, a pegleg skeleton, and a zombie--have three goals: to find a lost treasure, unleash the restless dead from their graves, and to settle a very old score by destroying the Zantony bloodline. AJ has to stop them before midnight during Aunt Zsofia's annual Halloween party. Except he has a big problem--monster phobia! He's scared to death of monsters. But if he doesn't act fast, the streets of Craggy Cove will be crawling with zombies. Will AJ overcome his fear and stop the monsters or bail out? Will Craggy Cove become Zombie Central? Who will be alive when midnight tolls? My review of "Curse at Zala Manor" Do you enjoy reading a book that can send chills up your spine, but doesn't gross you out with lots of gory details? With a well planned plot and bold adventurous characters, "Curse of Zala Manor" more than fits the bill. Moving at a fast pace this story holds the interest of the reader from beginning to the very end. My rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars.
