Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of The Event Group series launches a new series of paranormal thrillers just in time for Halloween.

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 fairy tale 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.

    "A Review for Anybody Who Owns the Previous Version"
    Any additional comments?

    Audible used to sell an unabridged version of The Supernaturals read by Jeffrey Kafer. I'm such a big fan of that book that I bought this new version to see if there were any differences.

    Mr. Golemon has done some minor editing. The story is still the same, but the text has been cleaned up a little. (Personally, I miss some of the details from the old version.)

    Imho, if you already own the Kafer version, there's no need to buy this one too. The minor edits don't warrant buying the book twice, no matter how good it may be.

    Story
    "Great read for ghost hunter and haunting fans!"

    When I was five, I crept out of bed and secretly watched a scene from a scary movie that my parents were watching. The scene was that of a door, in what I assumed was a haunted house, bowing in and out as if taking breaths. The scene terrified me such that it haunted my dreams throughout my childhood.

    Decades later I happened across the same exact scene in an old movie. I am, of course, speaking of the 1963 movie "The Haunting" based on "The Haunting of Hill House" by Shirley Jackson.

    “The Haunting of Hill House” has been the inspiration for many horror authors and screenwriters but in a twist from the average inspired story or movie remake, the premise of "The Supernaturals" is that the house in this story was the inspiration for Shirley Jackson's novel. When the story opened with a scene describing a breathing door, I was hooked.

    "The Supernaturals" is a spin of the classic tale updated with an eclectic crew of talented "sensitives", scientists, the latest ghost hunting gadgets, and a back biting television network trying to produce a live Halloween ghost investigation show.

    The authors spends a good bit of time setting up character backgrounds and motivations but never to the point of losing interest. It was a gripping tale with escalating risks and scares to the end. The characters, including a good number of skeptics, were interesting and played well with or against each other.

    The reader read well. All character voices were distinct and realistic. It was a great performance and a great read for anyone who is a fan of hauntings, ghost hunting or things that go bump in the night.

    "A very enjoyable and creepy ghost story"

    If you like a ghost story with a haunted house, this is a great choice. It has all the necessary elements, including the uncovering of background history, to build a thrilling story.

    "Pretty much could not put it down!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. The story drew me in right from the beginning, the characters were well developed and very believable. The subject was very interesting and the narrative was fast paced with no fluff or filler.

    The narrator was spot on. His ability to change his voice with each character made this story come to life in my mind.

    I will be listening to more by both this author and narrator.
    Absolutely!!

    "A Very Promising Start to a Great New Series!"
    If you could sum up The Supernaturals in three words, what would they be?

    Nail-biting, Emotional, Thrilling!


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

    I think that most books in the Stephen King collection would fall into this category of supernatural and suspenseful however, beware, his books are quite a bit more gory. Lillith Saintcrow's Hunter series also delivers a healthy dose of fantasy and other-worldlliness with her character, Jill Kismet, that are very gritty and character driven. Shirley Damsgaard does a fantastic job of authoring very "hard-to-put-down" novels featuring Ophelia Jensen, a supernatural private investigator. Her novels also prove to be a lighter read with a quirky main character and a similarly funny cast of suspects.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen R. Thorne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first book with him as a narrator but I look forward to listing to him in the future.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Time Multiplies the Horror of Summer House. Can anyone survive it's deadly secrets?


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first time reading a book by David L. Golemon. I will be gleefully searching for another of his books as soon as I am finished writing this review!

    Story
    "Over the top and hard to swallow"

    Spoiler alert: This review will give a few things away.
    I love a good haunted house story and I had high hopes for this one. The blurb sounded quite intriguing. And it started well. An investigation of the house that purportedly inspired Shirley Jackson to write The Haunting of Hill House? Great idea! But things go downhill fairly rapidly. First, we have a fictional show called Hunters of the Paranormal, which regularly gets a rating of around 30 million. What? In what universe would such a show get ratings like that? And then we have the fact that, before the big, live, Halloween special even gets going, the hosts of Hunters of the Paranormal are out (one is murdered, one quits) and the producers bring in a professor who had a disastrous investigation of the house 7 years ago and his totally unknown (by the TV audience) team. Really? And the network throws around money like it was candy. Millions.
    There are a lot of characters here, and Stephen Thorne does a good job with them, but when we get near Halloween and the supernatural events heat up, things just get sillier and sillier. One, why oh why would anyone let this live telecast go on despite the fact that the house is now a crime scene? Two people vanished from the test broadcast, and later they show up and one murders the other, but no. Go ahead and do your show.
    The biggest complaint I have is one that so many haunted house books have. Despite the weird and unexplainable things happening around them, several characters still can't bring themselves to believe in ghosts. One guy even tries to break down a window with a chair and watches as the window "heals" itself, but still thinks it's a trick. Because self-repairing windows are a thing.
    It's not a good thing to reference a great novel (The Haunting of Hill House) in your mediocre novel.
    Good things: I liked a lot of the characters, at least those that weren't acting like total idiots.

    "Actually a great listen"

    I was pleasantly surprised that this book I randomly plucked was not just well written and well read but darn entertaining. I found myself staying up late and squeezing in time to listen just because I was so engrossed in the story.
    One of the better horror stories I've read lately with a nice twist that took me almost to the end to figure out.

    Story
    "Haunted House"

    What I love about haunted house stories is that there is almost always a mystery/backstory to figure out to know why the place is haunted in the first place. The Supernaturals is a contemporary take on the classic haunted house tale. Mysteriously opening doors, creepy basement, ghosts, etc. with the modern play of TV "ghost hunters" trying to solve the mystery. I felt the narration dropped the ball a bit on some of the characters' voices, but it didn't take from the story experience too much at all. Overall, it's a fun ride with lots of scary images to exaggerate if you have a runaway imagination that likes to take things further.
