Rebel Stone, the self-proclaimed "Ghost Hunter," enlists the help of two twin ghosts to help stop an alien invasion. Kidzworld reviews Rebel Stone and the Ghost Whisperers by Walter Rouzer.

Author: Walter Rouzer

Rebel Stone calls himself a ghost hunter. But in reality, his adventures have more to do with an alien invasion. Sure, there are a ghostly set of twins roaming the upstairs of Rebel’s new home, Morgan McGuire’s Mansion. But he quickly resolves their problem in hopes that they’ll help him with a far greater issue, one that is causing chaos in the town.

Cornfield Catastrophe

People are going missing. First Albert Drusky who chased his pig into crazy Bellarouse’s cornfield on the night of a storm. Second, Sheriff Gary searched for Albert in the cornfield. And now, Ricky the paperboy who went into the cornfield seeking a surprise that Bellarouse promised him. But anyone stupid enough to trust a crazy, food-obsessed madwoman like Bellarouse deserves her unpleasant surprises.

Animals vs. Aliens

To the untrained eye, it appears that the missing people’s pets were the only ones to witness the surprise and leave the cornfield unscathed. But what Rebel Stone and his new friend Becky learn during their investigation is that the pets were in fact their owners! Rebel suspects alien spirits, which turns out to be spot on. Aliens plan to steal the bodies of people living in their town by transferring their souls into animals. And if they like living as humans, they’ll take over the entire planet.

The Bottom Line

Rebel Stone and the Ghost Whispers claims to be the “editor’s choice” of iUniverse publishing. Unfortunately, the book reads like a spell-checked first draft, rather than a finished, well-written novel.

The story had a good concept, but a bad delivery. It's filled with flaws that most editors would have undoubtedly caught: poor sentence structure, way too many metaphors (most of which don’t make sense), and unrealistic dialogue that is hard to follow.
