Algoma Ghost by Russell Slater

511hdy30exL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_I am both a lover of the horror genre and a former ghost hunter. Because of that, this book called to me. Russell Slater is a friend of mine, but this is the first of his books I’ve read. For transparency purposes, I want to point out that I purchased this book from Amazon (it was not a review copy given to me), and Russell doesn’t even know that I am doing this review! He shared a link around Halloween, and once I had the funds, I placed the order.

Anyway, onto the book…

This fun (OK, it’s not “fun,” but to me, horror anything is “fun!”) fictional tale isn’t for children, and it’s not for the faint of heart. It’s almost like a ghost story within a ghost story since it covers a ghostly tale from the past and then jumps into “now” with some teens doing typical teen things (in this case, raising the evil spirit of a child murderer through the use of a Ouija board).

Whether the tale of Elias Friske and Hell’s Bridge is true or not, something sinister happens quickly in the pages of this book, within the town of Rockford, MI. Is it the ghost of a long-dead murderer killing animals and people, or is it something else – something maybe even more sinister?

There was a nifty twist in the story that I really liked. It’s a ghost thriller filled with spirits, murder, occultism, and all of the spooky things you’d expect from such a book.

I just finished reading Bentley Little’s The Revelation a few weeks ago, and I found that Slater’s book had the same feel (though much shorter). Two completely different stories and outcomes, but Algoma Ghost gave me some of the same chills nonetheless.
