Review / The Spirit Box by JH Glaze


When Walt Turner's mother died, he inherited her apartment and the antique shop below. After losing his job due to the treachery of a co-worker, The Spirit Box calls to him from the darkness of the shop with an offer of revenge. Lured by the promise of ultimate power and eternal life by the prisoner inside the box, Walt agrees to help it gather the final spirits it requires to return to human form.

John Hazard is investigating a series of murders and missing persons in this otherwise quiet town. His perceptions of reality are about to be altered in a life changing confrontation that will force him beyond the boundaries of darkness and ancient evil.

It is a spiraling descent into madness, where you may have everything you desire, if only you are willing to sacrifice all that you believe. When you look into The Spirit Box, be prepared to have more than your breath taken away.


The Spirit Box by JH Glaze is a very good read. The genre is paranormal horror. It is one of my favorite genres to read. This book had my attention from the very beginning. 

This story is about Walt Turner who lives in the apartment above his mother’s antique store. When she passes away, he inherits the store and the apartment. One evening, he falls asleep and has this strange dream of being in the store. In the dream, he was walking towards the back of the store and there he discovers this small wooden crate. What is the meaning of this dream? Is it trying to tell him something? 

JH Glaze has done an awesome job writing this book. This is the first book that I have read of his and I really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading more of his books in the future. I definitely recommend my friends to read it.

I give this book 5 Dandy's!!!
