I really enjoyed this book. I loved the spookiness of the stories of what happened in the house. I also liked the back stories of all the characters. Would make a good movie!

I stumbled upon this book after reading a review from someone who read Dean Koontz 77 Shadow Place and recommended this book. I' m so thankful to that reader! This book made me feel curious, confused, angry and I even laughed a little. Before I knew it I had finished reading it in 3 days! All 1,362 pages and I wanted more! I hope The Supernaturals come back with another story. As I read it, without knowing so it reminded me of the writing of one of my favorite authors Stephen King and it turns out the writer is a fan of Mr. King as well. I enjoyed this book very much!

I'm a big fan of Golemon's Event Group Series and was excited to see that he is embarking on a new series. I started the book a couple of nights ago and breezed through it. The storyline is about a college professor who takes a team of grad students to investigate a reported haunted house with an evil history. While on the investigation, tragedy strikes...a student mysteriously disappears. The professor is under suspicion but there is no evidence to bring charges. However, his reputation is ruined and he loses his position at the university. A few years later, a producer of a top-rated Ghosthunters type TV show wants to broadcast a paranormal investigation at the house ("Summer Place") live on Halloween night. In hopes of sensationalizing the story, she contacts the professor to join in the program. At first he refuses, but then he relents with the condition that he can assemble a team to take part. I don't want to give anymore of the story away...but trust me, all hell breaks loose. The multiple sub-story lines are adeptly interwoven and superbly paced. Golemon's haunted house is an eerily evil entity. At the risk of committing sacrilege, I'd rank it up there with Jackson's Hill House and King's Overlook Hotel as supreme edifices of horror. The human characters are interesting as well (especially the Professor's team), although a couple of the others are cliched (such as the backstabbing TV executive). But it all fits. Given the popularity today of the paranormal, it wouldn't surprise me to see this story transformed for the screen (large or small). It's that good. Side note for all you Golemon fans, this is by far the best edited book he has written...kudos to the publisher. This book is fascinating, suspenseful and creepy...and a perfect read as Halloween approaches!

This was great. I love his Event series and I wish this would become a series, too.

I finished this book in two days which is saying a lot considering the number of pages. Golemon delivers on the ghost story with the flair of The Shining and Rose Red. Summer Place (not a great name but whatever) appeared so perfect on the outside but yet held a powerful ghost who hated the living with a passion. Golemon doesn’t include a terrible amount of mumble jumble that only a scientist would understand, or care about even for that matter. Each page turns quickly as we first get to love/hate the characters then worry about their fate at the hands of the evil inside. Though I do believe the 1362 pages could have been cut by at least 400 pages, the story still flows well without becoming too cumbersome to the reader. We get a taste of the violence pieces at a time to hold our interest and keep us primed for the climax. Yes, the identity of the ghost did not take too much of a stretch in imagination to come up with so the climax seemed a bit tempered but was still enjoyable. I liked how Golemon didn’t summarize the reasons for the haunting at the end of the story. So many writers want every questioned answered or every thought examined but it is all pure conjecture what the ghosts were thinking or had felt in their past life. I don’t need a story tidied up if the ending makes sense – there doesn’t have to be a happy ending. My biggest complaint about the book is not enough people died. Very few of the characters I found irritating ended up dying but it caused only a mild disappointment. A person would be in heaven living in an unhaunted version of the house – though I don’t mind ghosts as long as they are happy ghosts who are willing to amicably share the house. The book has already invaded my dreams - I imagine today will be no different. It was a creepy but wonderful book that I easily give an A.

If your a ghost story fan this is a must read!!! It's back to the basic here!! Believable characters Spine tingling page turner and up late at night. I read and put it down for bed and find myself going to get the book to read " just a few more pages". Best book I've read in a long time always keeps reader on edge

Golemon is terrific at intermingling the supernatural with real life in his Event Group Series. This story promises to deliver fresh new twists to the traditional haunted house/ghost story theme. I pre-ordered and can't wait to discover what evil awaits!

What a ride! If you like ghost stories, you will love this one! It had it all, horror, suspense and the all important, what comes next! It truly was "all that a bag of chips, and twelve Snapples to go"! This book would really be a hellacious movie! Glad that I never visited the real house which does exist! Enjoy the read!

This was truly a great haunted house chiller. Kept me on the edge of my seat and I slept with the lights on! Recommend to anyone looking for a good old fashioned haunted house ghost story.

I purchased this e-book after reading a review of another book, in which the reviewer recommended "The Supernaturals". As far as ghost stories go, this one has a lot of scary parts and does what's it's supposed to do. It kept me reading. However, I figured out the "secret" to the house about two-thirds of the way through. All in all, it was worth the read.

I love ghost stories, and especially the traditional haunted house type with real suspense and atmosphere. This book definitely met my high standards with everything from creepy setting, good characters and spooky happenings. The Haunting of Hill House meets Ghosthunters would best describe the plot. It moved right along with the suspense steadily ratcheting up. I will be checking out the Event Group series to see if it is as entertaining, and am hoping that there may be another adventure for this group of characters!

While i like my scary stories to have gore and sex, is story does not have any. But while these items are lacking, the suspense makes up for it. A behind the scene look at series like " Ghost Adventures" or " Ghost Hunter", but on a major scale. A nice story keeps this investigation moving. One of the better haunted house novels out there. Highly recommended.

"The Supernaturals" begins with Kelly, the producer of the show "Hunters of the Paranormal," pitching a live event for the show that will take place at a haunted house she has discovered. The most recent event was the prologue of Professor Gabriel Kennedy, a leading psychologist who brought several students to the house, when one of them was eaten by the house, disappearing forever. He soon became a laughingstock as he claimed the paranormal when the police suspected, but couldn't prove, that he had murdered the student. The house is really idyllic and looks like a beautiful vacation spot. However, due to its dubious past, it sits empty. The Johanssons maintain it to pristine conditions year-round every year, as they have been doing for generations, despite the lack of use. Kelly and her team go to the house and begin to experience some odd, paranormal things. One of the hosts and a technician disappear and the Johanssons' boy is paralyzed by fear and his hair turned white. Add to that, the police on the scene are skeptical and doubt it all- just as they did for Kennedy. Things are only going to get worse. Overall, it was a pretty slow build and took a long while to get anywhere with detailed descriptions and such a large cast of characters/names that I had to keep going back to figure out who was who (e.g. network execs, all the people working on the show of which many were named, the students and people in the house from the past, the owner of the house and caretakers, etc.). It would have helped to have a list of the names to keep flipping to, or to list some of the minor roles by profession or something else. I didn't find it particularly scary although I expected to which such an intense ghost story premise. The prologue was amazing and then the rest of book was much slower. That being said, it was still intriguing and was much stronger at the end- it seems like it is going to be a series, so that would be interesting! The writing seemed to hit its stride later in the book, so I would be curious to see more. Please note that I received this book through a goodreads giveaway. All opinions are my own.

This is one of the best supernatural thrillers I've ever read and I'm very picky & hard to please on this genre. This one was hard to put down, I read it intwo days even though it is over 1,000 pages. Read this one, you won't regret it!

Great book. Golemon does it again. Just as good as Legend, Primeeval, and Ancients. Can't wait for the next in the series. Couldn't put it down. I started at 10AM and finished the book at 9PM. Supernaturals will make a great addition to his other groups.
