The Spirit Box
the original cover
the new cover
    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.

About the Author:

    JH Glaze hails from Atlanta Georgia and draws from all genres to weave together stories that will at once entertain you. His writing style draws you into the story to the extent that you feel that you are living the action as it unfolds.

    His first full length novel, The Spirit Box is the beginning of a series that will take you inside the mind of John Hazard, a former Marine, a detective, and a real man who is persistent, but never perfect.

Where to find more info:


     Most of the time you'll find me reading YA or adult historical or paranormal romance what can I say I'm a somewhat "typical" girl. But I'm also a Lover of a good horror story once in awhile (I am a huge fan of Stephen King).

     I was asked to read The Spirit Box as part of a review challenge. I had been hearing such good things about the book that I jumped at the chance to read and review it.
This book was terrific. It had every element for a good suspense novel. and I was surprised at how it all came together.

     JH Glaze put alot of work in to his character Walt and he was such a typical schmuck that you almost feel sorry for the poor bastard then he turns around and does something that make you say "what are you thinking?" 

    The other main character in this book is detective John Hazard and although I didn't get a chance to get a really good feel for the man he does bring the story full circle. And he is a very big part of the book series as a whole.

     It's such an original story that it's hard to say much without giving something away. I enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to anyone looking to delve into a strange and twisted story. 

 The next book in the series:

    John Hazard is back on the trail of danger! After a life-altering event, he has resigned from the police department in small town America and enrolled in a Paranormal Investigation course at Bay University, a community college in San Francisco.

    For their final grade, the class ventures to the Pacific NorthWest to film a documentary on a mysterious phenomenon they call “The NorthWest Triangle,” where scores of small aircraft and people have gone missing without a trace.

    Professor Macy Renner believes the answer lies in an unsolved mystery from her own past and is determined to discover it, no matter the cost.

    Emily Sparks has her own reasons for going, and it’s not just about the money. She is about to jump from the frying pan into the fire as she signs on for a journey that will transport her into the veritable jaws of hell.

    Can a rag-tag team of misfits succeed in uncovering the source of the supernatural anomaly, or will the terror that lies in wait consume them in the process?

    Come along on an adventure where you will learn that you don’t have to outrun the creatures behind you. You only have to run faster than the person beside you!
