|User Summary:||You and your friends Josh and Megan win a trip to a castle in England and, of course, learn that it's haunted.|
This is a fairly good book; the writing's pretty good and, though it really serves no purpose, the characters are fairly thoroughly developed.
Castle of Darkness is… pretty bad. More time is given to characters and description, at the expense of having a plot that feels intelligible.
The story involves you and your friends, inexplicably enthusiastic about castles, going to visit a castle that has recently been opened to visitors. A creepy groundskeeper brings you around to the back of the castle, where you somehow end up participating in a once-every-hundred-years haunting event, which may or may not result in you being imprisoned in the dungeon for a hundred years.
There are a few nice bits, but they aren’t common. You can get crushed by a gate. "… your last thoughts are of your friends, and then of home and school and skateboarding." I finished this book feeling like I had missed something substantial about the plot.
