Publisher's Summary

"Iron...and...salt," whispers the old man. The dead old man. "Hurry or it will be too late...."

In a bid to escape the stresses of city life, Brian Roy moves his family out into the country, a decision that will forever thrust him into the chilling world of ghosts....

This digital box set contains all of the six thrilling supernatural novels in this best-selling series:

Moving In: The utopia of a peaceful country oasis is brutally shattered when Brian discovers a dead body in the woods, and his home has been infiltrated by murderous ghosts. Perhaps this wasn’t the change he was looking for, but Brian prays that he’s up to the challenge.

The Dunewalkers: William Engberg moves into a house by the shore to escape his tragic past. Unfortunately, he finds a legion of unwanted guests in his new home: ghosts. Determined to beat them, he enlists the help of ghost hunter Brian Roy, who is armed with a rare journal on how to vanquish the dead.

Middlebury Sanitarium: Brian Roy leads a successful ghost hunting organization called The Leonidas Group, but he may have finally met his match against the evil spirits lurking in Middlebury Sanitarium. Encountering everything from a vengeful king to lost souls still fighting WWI, Brian and his team have their hands full.

The First Church: In his latest adventure, Brian Roy will fight the ghosts of headless Japanese soldiers wreaking havoc in a New Hampshire church. They have indiscriminately murdered and maimed everyone from children to police officers, and the ghosts’ thirst for vengeance is as insatiable as their thirst for saké.

The Paupers’ Crypt: Brian Roy succumbs to the stress of his job and gives himself a break by taking up work as a superintendent at Woods Cemetery. At first, he couldn’t be happier...until dead people rear their grisly heads and grasping hands, pulling him back into his old job of ghost hunting.

The Academy: Brian’s exhaustion is deeper than ever before. But when he finds out his cousin Mitchell, the principal of the academy, is running into some ghostly trouble, he races against time to stop them.

Well worth the credit!

I'm a big fan of this author and love when his books are bundled together!! I've reviewed each one separately but I'll give you little snippets of my reviews for each book..

Book 1... The plot was really fast paced and addicting. You are brought into the action right from the start and it doesn't stop till the very end. The ghosts were all so creepy but none more so than Sam. He totally freaked me out!!!

In all, a well written story that gave me chills. This is an author that I need to check out and see more of their books!! Definitely recommend, though maybe not at night!!!

Book 2... The plot of this was again, fast paced and intense. It takes place in both this time and another, and I really enjoyed seeing Williams story and the twist the author threw in. The ghosts seem to be getting scarier and more evil and this one frightened me a lot!!

Anyway, in all, this was another quick creepy read. I so want to see these as a series!!! While reading I kept thinking to myself, what would Sam and Dean do!!! Lol. Being a big Supernatural nut, this series is right up my alley.

Book 3... One thing I've found with this series is that the settings seem to be getting creepier and creepier. I have always thought that, for a ghost story anyway, an abandoned mansion, or hospital or Sanitarium are always a good place to set it. They just give of an incredibly scary vibe! Middlebury Sanitarium was such a scary place, and the authors descriptive writing just gave me chills thinking of it. You could just imagine the pain and suffering that took place there!! Definitely not a book to read in the dark ;) Saying that, I may love scary stories but I'm a wimp and only read them during the day!!!

Again, the author creates unique and interesting characters. I loved the introduction of Ken!! His back story was awesome and his character really shined. Then we have the dead! All of them were as freaky as hell and scary as ever!! The King!!!! I got goose bumps while reading about him. But as I've come to expect with this author. Some of the awesome characters die. Damn you Ron Ripley!!!! ;) Though with so many ghosts wafting around the place, maybe they might make a return!!! Lol.

Anyway, this book, and indeed the series, was amazing. They may be relatively short books, but there is so much happening that they don't feel short. They are chock full of suspense, thrills, chills and will grab you from the first page. I so want these to be a mini series on TV!

Book 4... This series has quickly became a kind of bite sized pleasure of mine! The author knows how to capture your attention and he knows how to make your hackles rise and goose bumps appear! I love reading these, but not at night time ;)

In all, another awesome addition to the series. I so can not wait for the next one to come to audio, and that is thanks to the amazing narrator!!

Can you see a trend?? Book 5 and 6 are just as good and this series will firmly stay on my favourites list.

Thom Bowers does a great job as per usual. He has plenty of tones and voices and always brings the creepy atmosphere to life.

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

wow, really good and some not so good

ok, now the author of this book collection is Ron Ripley. I think he writes a great short story and I love how he describes characters feelings and you can like see them in your mind as your listening. It will be hard to rate since there was so many stories. So I'll but it this way, your going to find stories that just don't hit the scale and your going to find ones that have you hanging on every word and every word coming up. So yes this is worth the credit for what you get to listen too. So go for it. If you like your fear with a bit of sarcasm and weirdness. use your credit!

Horrible narrator

I couldn't even get through first hour of the book; one of the most boring narrator's I've had to suffer through.

Loved it! Great series!

I really like how Ron Ripley incorporates his other characters from previous novels, into each story, especially Shane Ryan.I like the rough and knowledgeable Shane Ryan character,but I hope Shane quits smoking lol😄. I hope there's a book 7 in this series, I'll be on the look out for it😁 Thanks for a great series,kept my attention and on the edge of my seat, I felt like I was pulled into the story and was a part of it, that makes for a great book!👍 Ron Ripley is among my favorite authors! I'll be looking for more books by him!

A ghost hunter with heart problems!

This is another excellent collection from Ron Ripley. If you had heart problems and a history of heart attacks, becoming a ghost hunter might not be the smartest choice of profession. In the first book we meet Brian Roy and his wife after they've just moved into their new home in the country. Brian has heart problems and should be learning to take it easy, but then odd things start happening in the house, and soon he discovers not only is there a secret 'cemetery' in the basement but his house is practically overflowing with ghosts. He seeks help to deal with his haunting problem, which eventually leads him into becoming a 'ghost hunter' himself. The series then follows Brian as he attempts to help others combat evil spirits in a variety of creep locations, including a beach house, a cemetery, a school, a church, and one of my all-time favorite creepy locations for a haunting, an old sanitarium. I've read/listened to quite a few of Ron Ripley's books and he never disappoints. While I think I prefer his Berkley Street and Haunted Collection series more, this is still a fun series, and being able to snag all 6 full length books for a single credit makes it one heck of a bargain. Seriously, we're talking 40+ hours! And as with most of Ron's work, he also includes bonus chapters at the end of each story. What are bonus chapters? Think of them as DVD extras, those scenes that were filmed but ended up getting cut. They are fun little extras and I can think of a number of other authors that I would love to see take up the practice.

Thom Bowers, who has narrated most if not all of Ron Ripley's other books, is back and he does a great job with the narration.

I received a copy of this audio title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Love the Box Set

I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves the supernatural ghost stories. This is the 2nd time I’ve listened to books but 1st as box set and loved it as I did not have to wait for next book and not having to find the books in order on my IPod.
Book1 Moving In Brian and his wife Jenny move into New Hampshire house after his heart attack and find it haunted. My favorite characters were Leo and Sam who help Brian with the ghosts especially Paul and his family. Sylvia, Jenny’s friend is a medium and visits and recommends salt and iron for protection. There is a lot of action with angry evil ghosts.
Book2 The Dunewalkers Brian is now considered a ghostbuster entrepreneur and is hired by William Engberg to help to get rid of all the ghosts in and around his house prominent ghost is Kathleen and there is Indian ghosts . (Poor dogwalker Joseph and his great danes). Brian armed with his equipment and an old journal attempt to help but need other’s help before he helps William and recommends salt and iron. Leo is again in book. Paul is back and Jeanette, Charles and Ellen try to bind him into a doll, then there is Florence, so sorry for Sylvia. What happens to William you have to listen
Book 3 Middlebury Sanitarium (a favorite) There are many ghosts in the sanitarium under the control of the king. Carl Reynard wants Brian to investigate the unwanted activities as he wants the place sold. Ken is the guard on the 3rd shift who had been able to keep them quite until recently and helps Brain with the most active areas. Leo gives Brian a powerful gift which gives him the ability to see all the ghosts. All hell breaks loose with the ghosts as the King arrives. Sylvia’s niece Ann (wannabee ghosthunter) comes to help Brian. Francine a young ghost from his past is also there and she also hates the King. There are many deaths occurring during his investigation. . Florence is brought in to help destroy the King
Book 4 The First Church The Reverend from the church calls Brian to help with the abnormal activity that is occurring and has video of what happened to 2 boys who had their eyes removed in the church. Mr. Boyd collected 6 heads of Japanese soldiers when he was in the service and the soldiers want them back. Shane from the Berkley Street series (which I highly recommend) come as he speaks Japanese and to help Brian. Jim (who sees ghosts) and his grandfather Luke (who is blind) and sake really help Brian. Miles Cunningham has been putting the skulls in the church as well as serving the Japanese soldiers sake to keep from them killing him. Leo communicates with Jim and then with Brian to also help him understand the soldiers. Sad ending.
Book 5 The Paupers' Crypt Brian wants break from ghosthunting and takes job as superintendent of the cemetery but encounters more ghosts and seems he cannot get away from them. John and Brian enter the crypt and find a skeleton and get locked into it and Ghost Mitchel tells them to use much caution when trying to find the door to get out, they run into several malevolent spirits one who rules them all. His wife Jenny cannot get in touch with Brian talked with Shane for help then Sylvia arrives and will get in touched with Leo. They are met with many difficulties, fog, ghosts, you have to listen to rest.
Book 6 The Academy (favorite) Brian had given up ghosts until his cousin Mitchell a principle of the Academy asks for his help. There are 2 evil ghosts (Weiss and Weston) that are wreaking havoc in the school and getting people to do there evil deeds. Felt sorry for Herman, Aaron, Marilyn. Larry, Eddie, Charlie and more. Brian talked with Ernest (Weiss’s son) and got more info. Enjoyed Beth the detective and again Leo. Loved that Charlie went to live with his brother.
If you enjoy ghosts I HIGHLY recommend as well as the Berkley Street Series. I was given this book from ScareStreet and voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU!!!
