Review: The good news is vampires aren't real, but the bad news is there may be something out there to get us! Nick a reporter for the "Cool Ghoul Gazette" thinks vampires are real and he will do anything in these stories to find a worthy news-breaking story, and Skull Creek Stakeout, the second book in the Caden Chronicles by Eddie Jones is no exception.
Nick's role as a journalist for the "Cool Ghoul Gazette" is to focus on Vampires. But when Nick is called in to explore a murder mystery, a cold case he is ready to explore. Having to stay in a weird manor with his aunt and meet some odd people is it possible to actually get some work done? He doesn't have a lot of time to pull off this story without a lot of facts and a culprit, But after observing a mysterious man, he thinks he's getting closeÉthat is until another murder twist the plot. Nick just may be in over his head this time.
Overall, this is a good book written by Jones. At first, I questioned whether or not I'd actually enjoy this book since I am not the kind of person who likes the entire ghost and vampire nonsense, but this was a good surprise. It turns out that this book has a little bit of everything. Skull Creek Stakeout includes fantasy, adventure and so much more. Even though I had never read books in this series, it did not stop me from enjoying it. Skull Creek Stakeout is good for middle grade readers-particularly boys. It has higher-level words descriptive settings, an exciting climax and so much more! Some people may not like the book because they don't like the supernatural, but give it a try. It's important to try different things.
