The Supernaturals | [David L. Golemon]

The Supernaturals

Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with it. But Summer Place has other plans....

Publisher's Summary

Evil doesn't always look scary....

Built at the turn of the 20th century by one of the richest and most powerful men in the world, tucked away in the pristine Pocono Mountains, Summer Place, a retreat for the rich and famous, seems the very essence of charm and beauty, "a scene borrowed from a wondrous fairytale of gingerbread houses, bright forests, and glowing, sunny meadows."

But behind the yellow and white trimmed exterior lurks an evil, waiting to devour the unwary....

Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with the event. But Summer Place has other plans....

As Summer Place grows stronger, Kennedy, along with the paranormal ghost hunting team The Supernaturals, sets out to confront - and if possible, destroy - the evil presence dwelling there.

But sometimes in a paranormal investigation, the ghosts hunt you....

    "Worth the credit."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would. But I have to say it wasn't that scary. It felt more like a mystery/adventure novel rather than horror; which is another of my favorite genre.


    What other book might you compare The Supernaturals to and why?

    I mean, duh... what can I say... "The Haunting of Hill House" by Shirley Jackson. David Goleman references this book a lot within the Supernaturals itself.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't really have a favorite scene, but I did love the sound effects throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Just by the way the book left off... I hope David Goleman turns this into a series.

    "A heady paranormal journey across time"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Supernaturals to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the audio edition brought life and personality to the characters, making them feel more real than a printed version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the theme of paranormal research and ghost hunting. The story was fast-paced, disturbing, and jumped across time so often that it was a little jarring.


    What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

    Jeffrey Kafer kept the story moving at a nice pace and gave real personality to each character. His voice was soothing, yet able to provide intensity during the pivotal moments within the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when Kennedy's team member, can't remember her name, loses her attached spirit. It's really moving, like she's losing a part of herself.

    "Refreshing ghost story, 20 stars!!"

    Finally a ghost story that wasn't peppered with cliches, bad language & unnecessary sex scenes. The story was so good I couldn't put it down. The narrator was great except for the few times the "beautiful" voice of Bobbie Lee singing, wasn't lol but even that couldn't ruin this great book.

    "What a great find."
    What did you love best about The Supernaturals?

    This was recommended by Audible. I read the other reviews and they all said this was a fun book. I was not disappointed. This was a long book but the action never stopped. This book was an adventure and a mystery. I enjoyed this book very much. Its very "American Horror"

    "Exceeded my expectatations"

    This turned out to be a really good book. I had read a couple of negative reviews as well as positive ones and decided to find out for myself - and liked the book considerably. Really well done and a very enjoyable ride into the supernatural. I hope the author comes out with another book.

    "SUPER ENTERTAINING!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is so entertaining. A real nailbiter. I guessed who the bad guy was but not the circumstances.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Supernaturals?

    When all was revealed.


    What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He gave great nuance to each character.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Audible so adds the Event series by this author.

    "Well-Written Ghost Story"

    I enjoyed this new twist on a classic ghost story. Though over 15 hrs, I never felt the story dragged. I would have preferred a more dramatic narrator, but Jeffrey Kafer does a good job nevertheless. I hope, as the ending suggests, there will be a second book.

    "you have to get this one!"
    If you could sum up The Supernaturals in three words, what would they be?

    couldnt stop listening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the indian dream walker, he found out what the haunting was all about


    What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

    excellent performance


    If you could take any character from The Supernaturals out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    the dreamwalker


    Any additional comments?

    some characters were so damn annoying you wanted to scream,because they couldnt see beyond their noses. But in saying that it added to the story.

    "Perfect Halloween Entertainment!"

    This audiobook really is the perfect Halloween listen! Though clocking in at over 16 hours, the story is perhaps a bit overly long - but the special effects in the recording really add to the fun. The first appearance of the demonic voice in the prologue nearly made me drive off the road! It certainly adds to the spooky atmosphere! Literal goosebumps sprang up each time that scary voice came out of the speakers! The narration and even the overly detailed backstories amongst its large cast of characters really made me want to keep listening each time I arrived at my destination.

    The only detracting factor from the book lies with its length - it really is too long. A lot of the tension and eeriness dissipates as Golemon revels in the excessive details of the characters, their histories and their own conflicts unrelated to the spooky house. The eight-hour television special defies logic too - but a haunted house manor calls for a certain suspension of disbelief anyways. I think that this is perhaps more evident in the paper version - the terrific performance of the narrator in the audio version keeps it from dragging too much. And though the final resolution may offend some, it is a fun read overall and contains some genuinely frightening scenes. The book concludes with a set up for a sequel - I hope that it comes out in time for Halloween next year!
