What readers think about it

The thing about this book is that it is not scary but in my opinion, it is a lot more atmospheric and that’s what made me love it. Atmosphere and setting are two of the biggest and most important pieces of a book for me and it can make or break if the plot and characters are already a little wobbly. — (Ellie) ReadtoRamble


I love a good book about ghosts and specter doesn’t disappoint. I’m glad that I was able to relate to the main character since I’m introverted and I love horror movies. The book is fast paced and I didn’t really want to put the book down! — Kaili (Entertainingly Nerdy)


In many ways, Specter is your distinctive paranormal teen book, but the writing quickly draws you into the story. What I really enjoyed is that this book was fast-paced with several twists. Every time you think you have figured out the plot, you get a new twist. In some ways, Specter reads like a mystery novel, when as a reader get closer to the truth with each new revelation. — Sumit RK
