Zach Kalusky, host of Sci-D TV’s Xavier Paranormal Investigators, is ecstatic when he’s given the opportunity to explore the most haunted site in Chicago for a Halloween Special: Rosewood Asylum, a place long made off-limits by the local government, plagued by decades of mysterious fires and unexplained events. It’s Zach’s dream investigation- but there’s a catch: the network forces Xavier Paranormal Investigators to partner with the more dramatic-but less ethical-Demon Hunters. Now, Zach must fight for both his show’s integrity and his team’s loyalty while trying to protect his own secret: that he, himself, is possessed.

I really enjoyed this book! I am a fan of paranormal research and ghost shows. I have had numerous real life encounters with the paranormal and am a BELIEVER!! So reading this book had an extra twist for me! Prosapio does a wonderful job of creating a story that flows, gives you the “willies, is full of action, and keeps you wanting more.  The characters each bring a unique aspect to the storyline! I definitely suggest reading this start to the XPI series, especially if you are are a fan of the paranormal investigations!   

MY RATING:
