Lucas Trainer, the boy with the mysterious lung disease, finds himself leaving his old city life behind to live in the middle of nowhere with nothing interesting about this place… or so it seems. This is the basis for a great book by Jeffrey Salane. When Lucas starts his ride to his late uncle’s old mansion, left to his family in his will, they find themselves lost in the twisting roads of Hound’s Hallow. There he meets Bess, who helps guide him and his family to their new home. No one here seems to have modern technology, and cell phones don’t work as due to the lack of mobile signal. Their new mansion seems to be normal, but something is off. There are ghosts wandering the house. Lucas has to make friends with Bess, and her friend Lens, to uncover the legend of the Beast, a mysterious being wandering Hound’s Hallow. In addition, the town has been having a spike in missing tourists, all are yet to be found. The reason the book had 4 stars was that I feel there could have been more about the exploration of the mansion. Also, when reading the excerpt from the book and Amazon description, it reveals a bit too much about the plot. Overall, I believe this is an amazing book for those who like adventure or mystery.
