The Fifth Specter by T.S. Welti-4 stars

Welti, T.S., The Fifth Specter. pgs. 349. Create Space, 2011. 

Parker Chance is a 13-year-old about to leave his oppressive past behind and start an adventure to a new life. Parker enters Stonyford Hollow for the first time so does the reader. Parker with his new friends, Norah and Lucas embark on a dangerous mystery concerning the disappearances of Parker and Norah’s moms. Something dark is going on in Stonyford Hollow and it’s up to the trio to find out. Can the three find the missing moms and solve their dark mystery?

 The description in this book are amazing. The characters are well-developed, likable, and more interesting as the story moves forward at a good pace. Although the readers may see elements from Harry Potter, X-Men, Holes, and Michael Vey, the book is extremely entertaining. Readers who like any of the above series or who like fantasy, science fiction, adventure, and mystery will enjoy reading this book and will want the next book.
