Lost Mojo by Kris Sedersten is the prequel to the novel I've previously reviewed, Mojo, the first novel in the Mojo series. Revised since it's previous release, this novel sports a haunting tale of young ghost chasers and their indoctrination into the world of the paranormal.
Overall, this novel has a great plot and likable characters. There's a chilly aire to the novel pthat perfectly brings out the eeriness of the paranormal, you know, those feelings that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Cleverly devised, Sedersten is masterful at bringing you into the haunted worlds she creates sucking your into the story to where you stay up late into the night just to see what happens next.
The only critism I found in the novel is that some of the dialogue can be a little rigid. Every now and again the flow of the story is broken by the rigidity, but the overall enjoyment of the novel tends to make one over look these minor bumps in an otherwise smooth road. Also, the perspective shifts can be a little sudden and even blurred in places making you have to take a moment and sort out where in the world you are and who's eyes you are seeing it through.
In the end though, this novel is a definite must read. I found it to be enjoyable and addictive. Definitely what I've come to expect from Sedersten when it comes to ghostly tales and she delievers full force! So if you're in the mood for a chill, be sure to pick Lost Mojo up, it won't disappoint!
