This is actually the first book I have read in the Red Eye series. I had no idea what I was getting into when I started so I didn't even know that it was a gruesome YA novel. It wasn't the most exciting book I have read but it really isn't too bad either. It was a nice around the campfire read and I think my kids especially my sons will like this when they become teenagers. It is definitely meant for the younger crowd which may be why it didn't appeal to older adults. The main pitch of the story is nice and I like how the author relied on old standbys like cursed gold, good vs evil, and subtle horror that is not too graphic. It would be a fitting book to read on Halloween night. I received a copy of this book from the publishers via Netgalley for free in exchange for an honest review.
