Book description :

Sometimes the past is better off buried.

Senior year is finally over. After all they’ve been through, Dan, Abby, and Jordan are excited to take one last road trip together, and they’re just not going to think about what will happen when the summer ends. But on their way to visit Jordan’s uncle in New Orleans, the three friends notice that they are apparently being followed.. And Dan starts receiving phone messages from someone he didn’t expect to hear from again—someone who died last Halloween.

As the strange occurrences escalate, Dan is forced to accept that everything that has happened to him in the past year may not be a coincidence, but fate—a fate that ties Dan to a group called the Bone Artists, who have a sinister connection with a notorious killer from the past. Now, Dan’s only hope is that he will make it out of his senior trip alive.

My review :

My review for this third book will be very short because it was a huge disappointment … I still can not believe it … Even if the other books were not my favorites they had the merit to be very entertaining to read. They were not scary but the pictures made it all pretty creepy.

Here, we head to New Orleans to close the story of Dan, Abby and Jordan. I love this city, I’ve never been there before but it fascinates me. So the story could have been really nice. There are so many things in this city, states to exploit in the “horror” / scary genre …

I found the plot completely messed up, uninteresting. As if this book had been written because it needed a third book … And what to say about the end, except that it is sloppy and extremely bad.

I do not like to criticize books but knowing that the first two books were very nice I don’t understand what happened with this one.

I still have the prequel to read, I hope it will catch “Catacomb”…

 

My rating : /5
