The place had a gruesome past that nobody wanted to talk about…
Camp Deathe is now a great place to spend the summer. Ritchie soon finds a group of outsiders like himself. Teenagers who ignore the organised activities, and bunk off in the old abandoned cabins deep in the woods. The cabins that have a history.
The campfire monster stories were meant to just scare them. Nobody expected them to come true. Then one of the teenagers disappears in the middle of the night.
Something is watching them. It hides in the woods and hunts at night.
Ritchie will have to uncover the secrets of the camp and understand his own problems in order to survive.
Camp Death is Book 1 in a new series brought to you by Question Mark Horror. For fans of Point Horror, Christopher Pike & Nicholas Pine.
When Ritchie’s parents tell him they’re going on a holiday he doesn’t expect to end up in some camp, segregated from his family. But at first things don’t turn out to be too bad – he makes friends with some other outsiders, and meets a girl. But then one of the teenagers goes missing, and it seems that the legend of the beast could actually be true……
This is a classic horror story with a creepy ‘cabins in the woods’ setting and the legend of a monster who goes around ripping teenagers apart. Quite a lot of the story I found to be about the teenagers themselves, and the hardships the teenage years bring, which is good as it means the age range this is aimed at will be able to identify with the characters.
I had my suspicions about some of the ending, but another part of it completely shocked me! if you’re an adult reading this then you may have come across stories similar to this before, but since it’s aimed at young adults, this is likely to be the first time they come across something like this, and could ignite their love of horror.
There are a few gruesome parts but nothing too much, and it’s most definitely appropriate for the younger readers from 13 onwards.
I’m excited about the whole new Question Mark Horror series, and this is a good start. So if you’re looking for a new Young Adult Horror series then check this out.
