Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author of The Event Group series returns with a new paranormal supernatural thriller just in time for Halloween. Set in the world of The Supernaturals, one of Riffle's Ten Best Haunted House Books of All Time.
Five years ago, the ghost hunting Supernaturals disbanded after being accused of faking their experiences at Summer House. Now, the eccentric, but brilliant, team of scientists and paranormal experts are being asked to join forces once again - this time to save the president.
Through strenuous investigation and mysterious messages about returning home, the team soon discovers the long lost home of the president: a small town in California called Moreno, a modern ghost town.
When the Supernaturals go to Moreno for answers, they find a presence; something came to Moreno after WWII, something that's still locked in a steel vault in the basement of the town's old movie theater.
To make matters worse, the thing in the basement is starting to pull them into its time, Halloween of 1963. With the body count rising, it'll be up to the Supernaturals to find an explanation for what this paranormal being is and how to defeat it.

Good, Not Great

I loved the first Supernaturals book, but this one doesn’t live up to my expectations, mainly because the plot is too over-the-top. The book also has inconsistencies, implausibilities, and areas where the writing needs to be tightened up. These didn’t ruin the book for me, but they definitely detracted from my enjoyment of it.

Mr. Thorne’s narration is fine. It’s not great, but I've heard far, far worse. My chief complaint is that it’s hard to distinguish the individual characters. With a few exceptions, the characters all sound alike.

This book feels completely different from the previous one. It’s difficult to explain why. The first book was about a group of friends solving a mystery in a spooky, isolated, haunted house. This one is way over the top in comparison. It feels more like one of Mr. Golemon’s Event Group books. It’s about a science experiment gone wrong and a military conspiracy to hush it up. Heck, it even has guns and explosions and a mission to save the President. It’s like the author took an Event Group story and swapped out the Event Group characters for the Supernaturals characters. In fact, if you’re a fan of the Event Group series, you’ll probably like this a lot.

It’s not a bad book, but it’s not great either. IMHO, this isn’t worth a credit, but it’s worth a few bucks if you can get it on sale.

a surprising disappointment

The change in narrator from the original release of the first book was a bit tough to get used to at the beginning. This narrator did a decent job overall, but failed to capture the personalities established in the first book. This book had a lot of continuity issues, I felt. I cannot imagine how tough it is to write a story from multiple perspectives in time, and then try to link it all together. I did not feel that this book did the story justice. A lot of the plot elements seem to have been almost chosen at random.

The real star of this book was the backstory that was told about Dean and Gloria. In reading the segments set in that time there was far more interest and vivacity that seemed to have been completely drained from our characters that comprise the team; The Supernaturals.

I absolutely adored the first book and was sadly disappointed in the sequel.
