The last few weeks of Derek's life have taken one horrifying turn after another. A dead soul reanimated his brother's body. A Legion of souls returned to wage war on the living. And Derek discovered that his role in the war is more pivotal?and more terrifying?than he ever could have imagined. Now it all comes down to this. The Rift between the worlds of the living and the dead has to be closed forever. It seems like an impossible task. And it rests squarely on the shoulders of a fourteen-year-old, slightly overweight, not particularly heroic kid named Derek Stone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful storytelling This series amazed me. I devoured the four books, and was elated by the ending, but left wanting more in the story arc. According to the author's website, that might be possible. We can only hope there will be more books featuring Derek Stone. Derek always thought he was just a normal 14 year-old, but now he knows that is not so. He is being chased by dead people, reanimated by returned souls; he can hear them and feel their presence. He can see ghosts. Along with the reanimated body of his brother and a coma survivor, they are the last hope of humanity. But will he become evil to defeat evil, and will he sacrifice his humanity to save all of humanity? These are questions Derek struggles with in this the fourth book in the Haunting of Derek Stone Series. These books were great, and they would make an amazing movie or TV mini-series. The story is compelling and highly addictive. You feel for the characters and realize the issues they are struggling with have deep personal consequences. All in all, the four books were riveting. Tony Abbot amazed me with this series. I could not have told you his name, but I was aware of his series The Secrets of Droon, yet had not read any of them. The fact that he has over 70 books published means that if they are all the calibre of this series I have a lot of good reading ahead of me. Tony Abbott is most known for his Secrets of Droon series and his bestselling novels, Kringle and Firegirl. He is the author of over 70 books, many of which are now on my to-read list.
