Publisher's Summary

Where's your lantern?
The Devil's Gate, the looming barrier that keeps the demons and nightmares at bay every night of the year except for Halloween, comes crashing down. An army of steam-powered automatons, led by the Devil himself, finally gets the better of Jack of the Lantern, the man who tricked the Devil and gave us the jack o' lantern for protection on the darkest night of the year. With their steam-powered soldiers, the demons no longer fear Jack of the Lantern as they pour out in to the world to get into whatever mischief they desire.
Even though his parents raised him with stories and old traditions of Ireland, John O'Brien never truly believed, especially not old Jack of the Lantern. One Halloween night, John learns the truth when the demons come for him, leading an army of steam-powered soldiers. With the help of his cousins, Moira O'Neil, heiress to the special ritual that keeps the Devil's Gate closed, and Daniel McRory the inventor, John must take up the mantle of Jack of the Lantern and create a new legend great enough, terrible enough, to scare the Dark Lord and his dark legions back into their dark realm. He must become Halloween Jack.
The Halloween Jack books are part swashbuckling adventure, part steampunk fantasy, which twist and turn the traditions of old tales and legends upside down and inside out. If you enjoy a rollicking tale with clever and cunning heroes, Halloween Jack and his friends are heroes for you!

wonderfully fun story

The author may not be the best narrator in the world, but he did an amazing thing in making this story come to life and taking the time to bring it to audio himself. I have immense respect for the efforts it must have taken to bring this book to publication on his own, well done. the story was very fun, very quick-paced, and well worth the time and money.

M. Todd Gallowglas is a genius. I love his imagination in this story. it takes the Halloween story and kicks it up to a whole new level.

Loved the Audible version! I can't wait till the next one comes out on audible! I do a lot of driving. listening to this book has turned my mundane drive into something I look forward to.
