Has Gabriel created a monster? Something sinister lurks in the woods outside of Slade. Gabe has seen it, or he thinks he has - a shadow standing at the tree line, watching Gabe's house with faintly glowing eyes. Despite Gabe's misgivings, his new friend, Seth, relishes the creepy atmosphere of the forest. It's the perfect setting for his imaginary struggle against the Hunter, a deformed child-eating creature said to leave the bones of his victims in his wake. It's just a game, but it's all a bit much for Gabe, who quickly loses interest as summer ends and the days grow shorter. But then strange things start to happen. Frightening things. And Gabe knows it has to do with the dark figure watching him from the edge of the woods. Is Seth out to teach Gabe a lesson? Or is the Hunter more than just a myth? Gabe isn't sure which option is more horrifying, but he's determined to learn the truth before someone gets hurt . . . or more

Poblocki keeps the suspense high. . . . The strong characters and deliciously frightening action will keep fans of scary stories engaged to the end." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL Praise for THE HAUNTING OF GABRIEL ASHE: "The social dramas mesh well with the supernatural elements . . . . Poblocki creates a real sense of suspense." - BOOKLIST "Poblocki creates danger by not pulling punches. An atmospheric, creepy ghost story best read at night." - KIRKUS REVIEWS Praise for THE GHOST OF GRAYLOCK: "Poblocki misses nary a horror-story trope as he propels his cast through one terrifying incident after another to, at last, a climactic flight. Definitely a story to be read by flashlight." - BOOKLIST "Poblocki is in his element with eerie happenings and atmospheric settings. Short chapters with cliff-hanger endings and several twists and turns in the plot will ensure that the pages turn quickly.
