Summary

People are dying to get in. The ghosts will kill to get out.

Discover and explore hundreds of haunted buildings and cursed objects! Witness spectral beings of all kinds with our patented Augmented Reality glasses! Experience all the terror and thrills the afterlife has to offer, safely protected by our Recurrence Field technology! Visit Ghostland today - it's the hauntedest place on earth!

After a near-death experience caused by the park's star haunted attraction, Ben has come to Ghostland seeking to reconnect with his former best friend Lilian, whose post-traumatic stress won't let her live life to the fullest. She's come at the insistence of her therapist, Dr. Allison Wexler, who tags along out of professional curiosity, eager to study the new tech's psychological effect on the user.

But when a computer virus sets the ghosts free and the park goes into lockdown, the trio find themselves trapped in an endless nightmare.

With time running short and the dead quickly outnumbering the living, the survivors must tap into their knowledge of horror and video games to escape...or become Ghostland's newest exhibits.

Truly fantastic read.

Best book I’ve read in a long time. Terrifyingly detailed, truly an emotional rollercoaster. There were times even I was afraid and, like Lillian and Ben, I’m a hardened horror fan. But I can’t lie, I’d have absolutely loved to go to a place like that, although the glasses wouldn’t do much good for me, as I wouldn’t be able to see anything. Headset definitely yes. There were a lot of times Lillian frustrated me, especially when we find out why she acted the way she did. I felt sorry for Ben throughout. Absolutely brilliant. I love Duncan’s imagination. That would be so awesome if it was real. This satisfies all my cravings for a theme park of horror and then some. If horror’s your thing, you have to experience this. That technology would be amazing to experience. The tram ride was one of my favourite parts. Didn’t see that coming. I’d love to experience A.R. or V.R. of any kind, but especially horror! Another brilliant narration by Mr. Hempel too. I also loved Duncan's Stephen King references to Christine and the shining. Incidentally, I agree with Ben. The mini series of the shining is much truer to the book than the film is!

loved it!

Right from the beginning it was non stop action and a veritable smorgasbord of ghosts. Reminded me a bit of 13 Ghosts but with more variety. I really liked the main characters and at the end found myself getting emotional. The narrator was perfect. Literally the only thing I wasn't too keen on was the author's tendency to describe the breasts of all the female characters. I'm definitely looking forward to his next book but I would hope for an equal amount of description of bulges and breasts.
