Author
Ghost Hunters: Spirit Fire
Who—or what—is causing the fires in the French Quarter? A little girl? A long-dead prisoner? An evil presence calling to those beyond the grave? In this spooky, fast-paced adventure, twelve-year-old Alex and his two best friends must fight smoke, flames, and ghostly prisoners to stop whatever’s causing the blazes—before more lives are lost.

Prose: 9 out of 10
Character/Execution: 9 out of 10
Overall: 8.75 out of 10

Assessment:

Plot: Effective worldbuilding drives this paranormal narrative for middle grade readers, the third of a series. Strong themes of friendship and grief trump the repetitiveness of the plot throughout the story. 

Prose: Clear, exciting, and evocative, McCauley executes a well-written ghost story with an atmospheric setting.

Originality: While reminiscent of classic middle grade mystery adventures, McCauley provides a fresh and fun supernatural element. 

Character/Execution: The main character is likable and comes across as a gifted hero who is mentored by his cranky teacher. He takes his gift seriously and strives to help others, all while grappling with his own personal struggles. Some encounters with spirits are cut short, leaving readers craving more.
