Derek Stone is not feeling like himself. Maybe that's because he just found out that he really isn't himself.

That's because when Derek was four and almost drowned in a pond, he really did. The soul of an ancestor, Ulysses Longtemps, translated into his body to wait for the time when he could fulfill his purpose. Which just so happens to be closing The Wound, a giant hole between this world and the next that will be reopened during a reenactment of the Civil War battle that killed Ulysses the first time around.

Plus, the reenactors have been translated into souls helping the Legion. All that Derek has to help him is a cryptic unfinished poem written by his ancestor/former self. Things aren't looking so good for Derek.

Derek is literally racing against time in this story, fighting to close The Wound before more people get translated. The Civil War reenactment backdrop is a thrilling setting, combining past with present in a spooky way.

THE GHOST ROAD, the fourth story in THE HAUNTING OF DEREK STONE series, is so exciting and surprising, I could hardly put it down! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0545034329, Mass Market Paperback)

Could the road to the afterlife be a two-way street? Reader reviews are in, and Tony Abbott is capturing the middle-grade fantasy audience with this new series!

Derek can't claim to be a normal fourteen-year-old anymore. Not after what he discovered at the Red House. His role in the war against the dead is more pivotal --- and more terrifying --- than he could have imagined.
And so it all comes down to this. The Rift between the worlds of the living and the dead has to be closed . . . forever. It seems like an impossible task. And it rests squarely on the shoulders of a slightly overweight, not especially brave kid named Derek Stone.
If Derek is ever going to become a hero, now's the time.
