really liked it

Zach, Zipper, Judy, Malik and Azalea plan to have a lot of fun on Halloween but the long dead Ickleby's have something more deadly in mind. A cast of 12 evil souls are out to get Zach because his great-aunts managed to chain their souls, keeping them locked up in a crypt.

There are a lot of fun Halloween lore tidbits thrown into this one, as well as some more about ghosts and souls.

The great-aunts are wonderful characters and have a lot to do with the progression of the story. Judy is in full protective mode over Zach but no one is prepared for the true evil that was unleashed on Halloween.

I loved the fact the Grabenstein resisted the impulse to make the whole story revolve around Halloween but instead had things happen for at least a couple of days after that spooky day.

This is a fun series, even if it is aimed at middle-school aged children, anyone who likes a good story would love this series.
