“We're all of us haunted and haunting.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Lullaby
six senior high school students team up for a Journalism project. with Halloween approaching, they decide on making a video documentary about urban legends in their hometown of Harvard, Nebraska. what they capture on film and audio was more than they bargained for.
with her knowledge of paranormal investigation and a very vivid imagination, author Kris Sedersten has given us another hair-raising story of murder, possession, hauntings and ritual sacrifice.
from the first page to the last, she has created an atmosphere thick with mystery, suspense and horror. the pacing is fast and there is never a dull moment. every little detail is well thought of and promises to raise goosebumps now and then.
however, this book is not just about things that go bump in the night. there is more to it than that. it is also about friendship, faith, love and redemption.
this novel is also a prequel to Mojo which recounts further what happened to Scottie Brown, one of the teenagers who left for New Orleans after the harrowing events he and his five friends went through together.
as sunlight fades and the shadows stealthily creep in, Lost Mojo is one of those books that you would want to cuddle up with if you want to treat yourself to a good fright.
