The Phantom Cabinet by Jeremy Thompson Douglas Stanton is a social outcast shunned by his peers. His only friend is the ghost of an astronaut. Douglas does not know that he is the key between the living world and the dead. A porcelain masked being as after Douglas, to stop him. Will Douglas be able to complete what must be done, or will he succumb to his evil stalker? A well written ghost story. I really liked Douglas, bullied, and shunned by his peers and society, he still tries to accept his life for what it is. He struggles with day to day life, plus his ability to see ghosts, just adds to his likability and spooky intrigue. The plot is original, the vivid detail and dialog pulls you deep into the story. The connection Douglas has with ghosts is fascinating. We get to watch Douglas grow from an insecure boy to a young man. I really wanted Douglas to find happiness and achieve his goals. There is drama, conflict, good, evil all the makings of a five star read. I feel those who love an (original) ghost story will enjoy The Phantom Cabinet. (The cover is very eye catching and quite fitting for this fantastic story).
Paranormal side to Horror If you like graphic (which doesn't bother me), then you will love this book. From the beginning, it sets the stage for an intense "out-of-this-world" journey into the haunting of the Phantom Cabinet, a porcelain masked "creature". The story could have flowed better and some parts were too detailed but the story itself was good. It was creative and an interesting read into the depths of the horror. I was a little confused at first with the "death" of Stanton but I continued to read on, hoping it would be fall into place, and the story does. If you love a good horror book, this would be a good starting point.
