Summary
What begins as a clever, gothic ghost story soon evolves into a wickedly twisted treasure hunt in The Supernatural Enhancements, Edgar Cantero's wholly original, modern-day adventure. When twentysomething A., a mysterious man of "European descent" inherits the beautiful but eerie estate known as Axton House set deep in the woods of Point Bless, Virginia, he is both skeptical and curious. After all, he never even knew he had a "second cousin, twice removed" named Ambrose, much less that the poor man had recently committed suicide on his 50th birthday'the very same night, in the very same room, and in the very same manner as his father had before him . . . A. is joined by his companion, Niamh, a mute teenage girl with shockingly dyed hair, and together they quickly come to feel as if they have inherited much more than just a rambling home and a cushy lifestyle. Axton House is haunted, they know it, and that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the secrets they slowly but surely uncover. Why all the suicides' What became of the Axton House butler who fled the day his master died' What of the garden maze's closed-off section' The secret rooms in the house with no entry' And what of the rumors in town that, every winter solstice, there is a mysterious gathering at Axton House that can only take place under cover of moonlight' Told vividly and mysteriously through a series of journal entries, scrawled notes, recovered security footage, letters to a mysterious "Aunt Liza," audio recordings, complicated ciphers, and even advertisements, Edgar Cantero has written a dazzling and original supernatural adventure with glimmers of Carlos Ruiz ZafOn's Shadow of the Wind
Summary
A 23-year-old student who goes by “A.” travels from Europe to Virginia to claim an estate he’s inherited. Along with his companion, a mute Irish punk girl named Niamh, he finds an opulent mansion but wonders about the suicide of his distant relative. The pair gradually learns about old family secrets and finds a mysterious basement vault. A. relates his tale through letters, journal entries, emails, ciphers, hand-written notes, and transcriptions of video and audio recordings. This engaging and offbeat narration raises chill bumps as A. and Niamh trace clues right up to the twisty ending. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
