This is roughly what I thought the original Choose Your Own Nightmare line was going to be like.
Your family moves into a new home. Your parents are demonologists (also ghost hunters, in some paths) and they have chosen to relocate into a haunted house on the day before Halloween. You immediately get swept up into a variety of creepy situations involving young witches, the spirit of Prudence Deadly, a witch whose soul seems to be haunting your house.
This book is not intended for little kids. There are a lot of very dark endings, and I can imagine kids younger than 12 or so being scared of some of these things. Giant spiders decapitating a friend. Your parents dying in a fire.
Most of the endings are not positive, but I was fine with that. These are supposed to be scary, and the upbeat endings tend to defuse any of the tension that was built.
The book feels very long. I was reading it aloud, and it felt like there were an incredible number of paths. Lots of choices, and a lot of endings. This felt like the longest CYOA I've read.
