The Gathering (Shadow House, Book 1)

by Dan Poblocki (Author)



You don’t just read this ghost story. You step into it. Some houses are more than just haunted… they’re hungry.

Dash, Dylan, Poppy, Marcus, and Azumi don’t know this at first. They each think they’ve been summoned to Shadow House for innocent reasons. But there’s nothing innocent about Shadow House.

Something within its walls is wickedly wrong. Nothing — and nobody — can be trusted. Hallways move. Doors vanish. Ghosts appear. Children disappear.

And the way out?

That’s disappeared, too…

Enter Shadow House… if you dare.

Don’t just read about Shadow House — explore its haunted depths with the free app!

This book is very nicely written and was really hard to put down. I enjoyed reading it and I hope that most kids will enjoy it as well. If you’d like to know what happens please don’t hesitate and read this book. It’s really mild horror even for a children’s book and a well written piece of work.

{The APP} – I also downloaded the APP that goes along with the book. It is well thought out and I like the way that it is put together. I like how you need the book to advance in the APP. I also like how it is made like a pick your own ending kind of thing. Very enjoyable!
