Review: Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum, by Stephen Prosapio

Goodreads Synopsis:   Zach Kalusky, host of Sci-D TV's Xavier Paranormal Investigators, is ecstatic when he's given the opportunity to explore the most haunted site in Chicago for a Halloween Special: Rosewood Asylum, a place long made off-limits by the local government, plagued by decades of mysterious fires and unexplained events. It's Zach's dream investigation- but there's a catch: the network forces Xavier Paranormal Investigators to partner with the more dramatic-but less ethical-Demon Hunters.Now, Zach must fight for both his show's integrity and his team's loyalty while trying to protect his own secret: that he, himself, is possessed.
My Review Ghosts of Rosewood AsylumGhosts of Rosewood Asylum by Stephen Prosapio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Ghost Stories, and Stephen Prosapio's 'Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum' does not disappoint.
Paranormal research, Ghost Hunting groups and Reality TV shows have become very popular in recent years, so to add them to a recipe for a piece of fiction totally makes sense, and it works!

The idea of two opposing TV groups, Ghost and Demon Hunters investigating on a Halloween TV special at Rosewood Asylum, a derelict, creepy and haunted setting with a disturbing past, is awesome!
The characters living and dead are diverse and draw you in. The story flows, but there are twists and turns, and occasional misdirection which is in keeping with the suspense.

In my opinion Stephen Prosapio's style of writing is descriptive and atmospheric, enabling the reader to build vivid images of characters and scenes.
Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum has a perfect combination of the paranormal genre, and I would love to see this book made into a modern day ghost film.
