THE HAUNTING OF DEREK STONE: CITY OF THE DEAD by Tony Abbott

Tony Abbott is known for his Secrets of Droon series, a fun-loving fantasy ensemble for the younger set. He’s also written several standalone novels and other series.

As far as I know, The Haunting of Derek Stone is the author’s first foray into the supernatural/horror field. All four books in the series came out in rapid succession, so fans didn’t have to wait long to get the full story of Derek’s adventures.

Abbott usually begins his stories with a bang, and this first book, City of the Dead, is no exception. First-person narrator Derek Stone is riding the train with his dad and older brother when it wrecks and falls into a river. After reading his Droon series, I have to admit that I was taken aback by all the tension that filled those pages. Abbott keeps the readability in place, though, and young readers will plow right through the prose, but it’s not going to be the same fun read they’re used to in the Droon books.
