She's come at the insistence of her therapist, Dr. Allison Wexler, who tags along out of professional curiosity, eager to study the new tech's psychological effect on the user.

There is so much more to this book then this blurb, the interactive part was awesome! Why I recommend the ebook just to have this available to you. Scary, gory, fast paced and the amazing backstories of some of these ghosts, the science, the history as well as the action spins around you, by far the best ghost story I’ve ever read! The author is on top of his game with this book and I hope to see a follow up or another project that includes some of the the extras. So much material here! Read immediately!! Welcome to Ghostland!
As for the ‘like Thir13en Ghosts‘? It was dead on. It very much has that feel, and if this ever got picked up for film, I would watch the hell out of it. It’s an all-around fun book that seems written by a tried-and-true horror geek. There are all sorts of references that will make you grin. I’m not a huge gamer, but when one of the characters says something along the lines of checking the wastebaskets for ammunition and money, I definitely had to take a pause from reading to have a good giggle.
Ghostland has lots of action and a swoon-worthy amount of violent deaths to accompany the references and jokes. Characters you can root for that die horrible, and characters you can’t root for that die horribly. Basically a win-win situation.
There were a few things that kept me from rating it higher and most of it is pure reader’s choice rather than actual problems with the book. I felt like it was too long. Even though there was a good bit of action and I enjoyed it for the most part, it felt draggy in the middle and third quarter. I would have liked it better without any hint of [not going to spoil it for you] that happens near the end. There was one thing that happened that was just fine because the characters didn’t realize it until a certain point, but bugged the crap out of me as a reader because it was so painfully obvious.
I loved the idea of the park even though I would never personally visit one because, yeah, hell is sure to happen because people shouldn’t play with dead things. (See what I did there? SEE?)
Overall, a good read that I recommend checking out.

The writing is strong and flows well and the story itself is good. BUT, i did feel it got a bit repetitive towards the end- characters going from exhibit to exhibit but with different ghosts at each stage.
The ending does leave it open for a sequel (saying no more!) and reading the author notes, there could be more stories coming within the Ghostland universe. I would definitely be interested in reading such work.
One big plus was the footnotes (on the kindle) which gave more info on certain exhibits, the map of the park at the start and the mystery surrounding Rex Garrote (outwith the story - the buildup was done superbly by Duncan). Oh, and the cover which is superb and eye catching!
YA mixed with some quite startling gore and violence, I found Ghostland to be a fun read and to be honest I'm quite surprised no one has written something with this concept before. It reminded me of 13 Ghosts in a theme park actually.
I found some of the rules of how the ghosts worked to be a bit confusing and in some sections it could briefly get confusing as to what was happening but overall I enjoyed it, happily taken along for the creepy ride. I also appreciated all the gaming references, Ralston seems to know his games!
Give this a try and you won’t be disappointed!
