If you could be a rockstar gone web-series celebrity due to your incredible talent to fight the supernatural wouldn’t you? This book while loaded with supernatural tropes is still a fun ride through a group of friends shenanigans, truthfully coming back to haunt them. When you think the story won’t be any more outlandish it jumps the shark with the largest haunting I can possibly think of. I couldn’t put down the book from start to finish, between the gritty art and hilarious set of characters you’ll find yourself loving the young playboy discovering his destiny through an odd take on American history. Switch of your brain and prepare to watch monster hunting at its finest. –Thomas Winkley
