Synopsis: Amy and her friends don’t know what to make of the weird anonymous messages they keep getting, but that’s nothing compared to the fireworks when Jack’s beautiful sister, Jessica, returns to town and starts an all-out war between her admirers. In the ensuing drama, none of the group notice that they’re being picked off, one by one, by a force beyond imagination…
Amy must hurry to uncover the secrets of her hometown before there’s no-one left to save, but something ancient is stalking the night-time streets of Crooksfield, and it’s not afraid to come into the light.
LAMPLIGHT is a terrifying contemporary ghost story about smartphones and social isolation.
Review: It took me a little while to get into this book, but I did enjoy the story.
I found the punctuation a little difficult to get my head around and I found myself mixing up the characters as there wasn’t enough about them for me to feel like I knew them. I enjoyed how the story progressed and the different elements that became apparent as the story went on, but I feel this would have had more of an impact if I was more invested in the characters. I enjoyed the mystery and suspense that built as the story progressed.
I will be looking out for more by this author as the idea behind this story was intriguing.
