Summary

Horror author C. Dennis Moore returns to the town of Angel Hill, site of his number one best-selling haunted house novel The Third Floor, for another tale in the ongoing saga of this dark and twisted place.

Mandy is about to start as a caregiver at the Mertland Childrens' Home in Angel Hill, Missouri, a town that keeps its secrets by hiding them in plain sight. For the Mertland Home, this means ghosts. Word around town is the place is haunted, and for the workers at Mertland, they make no bones about it: it is.

There are menacing reflections, the third floor hallway, and a dark force lurking in the woods out back. But if Mandy can keep her wits and remember the rules of dealing with the ghosts, she just might have found her calling. However, unbeknownst to Mandy, she's brought a few ghosts of her own, and when she discovers the truth at the heart of the place, all she wants to do is go home.

Unfortunately, as her co-worker Lynn tells her, "The building likes you."

Awesome

What made the experience of listening to The Ghosts of Mertland the most enjoyable?

I really liked this book because it was very thought provoking and I didn't figure out what really happened until the very end of the book. I couldn't stop listening to the book because I wanted to find out what happened.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Mandy because I could relate to her and what she was going through.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Without giving anything away, I really liked the major plot twist towards the end of the book. It made me really sad when Mandy realized what she had done.

Any additional comments?

The narrator did an amazing job reading the book. I really liked how she drew me into the character and made me feel like I was going through some of the emotions that Mandy was going through.

like being read to like you are 6 years old.

The story line is pretty good. Some juvenile sounding passages. This book would be greatly improved by a better reader. Not one that sounds like their full time job is reading to children in a library or class room. It took me three times to get through it.

Not bad more like a mind f*ck than a 👻 story.

Not bad more like a mind f*ck than a 👻 story. Not a fan of the narrator. Story was intriguing. The Third Floor by C. Dennis Moore is way better.
