Though it qualifies as a horror book this book is not as scary as I thought it would be. At least not for me. But that doesn't mean that this book wasn't good. In fact, it was almost as good as the first one and that's saying something because Daemon Hall is one of my favorite books to read. In fact, I got the first book in 2009 and have read it every year since. Naturally, when I found the second one I was excited and hoped that it would be great. Fortunately, I wasn't disappointed.

The previous year Wade and four others were the finalists in the writing contest held by the well-known horror author, Ian Tremblin. The contest was held in the supposedly haunted Daemon Hall. They found out it was haunted, and dangerous.

A year has passed and Ian Tremblin wants to hold another contest, but this time it will be in the safety of his own home. Wade and Demarius were asked by Ian Tremblin to come back as judges of the three finalists for this contest.

A fitting sequel to Daemon Hall, however, it was very similar...with the teens telling stories in between horrific happenings that increased in ghoulishness as the night(s) progressed. However, this book does not really have a true ending and is ripe for the third book in what must be a series.
Even creepier than book 1. Can't wait for it to hit the bookstores!!!

Ian Tremblin hosted a writer's contest last year and it didn't go well. At all. This is the second book in the series and he's trying it again. But instead of having the writing contest in a mansion with a bad history he is going to host it in his home. Nothing scary about that, right? Well, things don't really go as planned.

This book stands alone. There are enough references to what went on the first book that you can start with this one, as I did. It's suspenseful but isn't terrifying, filled
not as good as the first book but it was definitely a good read. I just didn't like the ending and hope there is a third book
I hate horror stories (my imagination scares me quite enough without any extra inspiration), but I found myself surprisingly unaffected by this. Maybe teens would find the stories more terrifying?
Great!! I wonder if there'll be a third! That would be awesome, but just drawing out the series, a bit.

I think this book is really good because it is scary and really interesting and thrilling
Honestly I didn't think andrew nance could write a book that was this creepy.
