This book seemed like it could be a good read, but it turns out the characters are not developed very well, neither is the atmosphere - that of a Vermont town full of paranormals - brought to life all that well. I felt this was not that well written, it had a lot of potential in the subject matter but didn't live up to it...just an okay book.
