My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am not sure quite what I expected from this book, but this story was much more unique and enthralling then I first thought.
Douglas has a very likeable and interesting character. I can’t help but feel sorry for the guy and the terrible hand that life dealt him. He pretty much raises himself and does not have any real friends other then his two buddies and even their friendship is questionable at times.
I really enjoyed reading and getting to know Douglas as he grew up from a very young boy to a man. His character is well developed and portrayed in a believable and intriguing manner. Douglas struggles all throughout his school years, bullied and always called, ‘ghost boy’ People hated him or were terrified to be around him. Not only does this character have to struggle to fit in with the outside world, but he has to understand himself; what he is and what his fate holds.
Some of the ghosts we get to meet are interesting, some are scary and some are downright evil and horrifying. The scenes were descriptive and left me feeling a little wigged out at times.
The phantom cabinet is a creative and terrifying place and the details were sensational. I really enjoyed reading about the quirks and how everything works while at the same time I was horrified at…’what if this is how the world really works?’
This storyline is well written and is different than anything that I have ever read. I look forward to seeing more from this author!
