We continue Odd's story,he and Annemarie are staying at Riseland estate. A woman on a horse asks him her son, since she is a ghost she can't actually tell him anything of course, but Odd being Odd says he will. So then the hunt for the boy begins, and even for Odd things get really strange.
I had a little trouble getting into this book, the first chapter just didn't peak my interest. And I think that lack of excitement carried through my whole read. I found myself putting off reading, there was laundry or dishes to be done, my book club books were more important, etc. Maybe by taking such a long break between books on the series I lost my momentum, that indicates to me that the series isn't that great after all. There were a few ghosts, but this was more of a supernatural adventure. Koontz's writing was as good as ever, but the storyline just couldn't seem to hold me.
