The Ghost Road is the last book in The Haunting of Derek Stone series and it what the entire series has been building toward. Can Derek accept what the ghost of his mother told him? Can he stop the Legion and seal the rift? Derek has been moving constantly since City of the Dead. He's had no time to think, to plan, to understand this destiny that everyone tells him he must fulfill. What can you expect of a fourteen-year-old, slightly overweight boy who is expected to stop an evil menace bent on taking over the world when he only has the help of his dead zombie brother and a young girl he barely knows? From official release/information:
Product Description: Derek can't claim to be a normal fourteen-year-old anymore. Not after what he discovered at the Red House. His role in the war against the dead is more pivotal --- and more terrifying --- than he could have imagined.
And so 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 slightly overweight, not especially brave kid named Derek Stone. If Derek is ever going to become a hero, now's the time.
