Hawthorn Inn (The Catalyst Series: Book #1) by Heidi Willard

Jack Erikson doesn't have great expectations when his mother moves them to an old decrepit inn in a town just as musty, but he's unprepared for the oddities that start springing out of the rotten woodwork. New friends introduce him to legends and rumors that have swirled around the inn since time-immemorial, and he finds plenty of proof to believe them as strange noises and twisted shadows stalk the halls.

Worst of all, his estranged grandfather has invited himself to join them at the inn. Creepy doesn't begin to describe that black-cloaked gentleman with the pale skin and weird, ever-constant glasses. Old secrets, mysterious sealed-up rooms and creeping shadows abound as Jack tries to manage his new life at Hawthorn Inn.

Hawthorn Inn is the first in a five novel horror/supernatural thriller series featuring Jack Erikson, a normal teenager with not-so-normal secrets.

183 pgs. Although there were more than a few grammer issues, the story was interesting enough to make you forget them. I look forward to reading more of the series. Can't wait to see what the boys get into next.

Lots of Grammer issues. Plots thin with little character development .

This book has so many grammatical errors it makes me think that it was written by some kind of robot or  possibly a foreigner that doesn't have a grip for the English language.  Character development was lacking in that  the author seemed to pick only one personality trait to carry each character.  The story line itself was an interesting one but the grammatical errors and the lack of more depth to the creepy grandfather at the first of this book made  reading it a chore.  Hopefully the next book in the series will have less grammatical errors and stronger characters for those that have faith to continue this series.. As for me, unless there is an edited version at least correcting the grammatical errors , I'm done.
