Summary

When YouTube ghost hunters Sam and Colby head to Kauai for an annual bro trip with two childhood buddies, they’re dying for a break from paranormal investigations - instead, they find themselves at the center of their most horrifying mystery yet.

Four best friends - check.

One unforgettable week in Kauai - check.

Sun, surf, and hula girls in bikinis - check.

A creepy mansion on the forbidden side of the island...check?

Sam and Colby’s vacation in paradise goes from enchanting, to weird, to deadly, when Trey, an old acquaintance, insists they can’t leave without a visit to the legendary Nā Pali Coast. It turns out Trey has been living at the infamous Belle Estate, owned by a wealthy and eccentric widow - who locals believe is a witch. The only thing odder than how a 23-year-old college kid from Utah ended up living in a remote and isolated mansion on the North Shore of Kauai is that he is romantically involved with a woman old enough to be their grandmother. Belle Estate’s walls hold an eerie sway over all who enter, and a dark, shadowy presence seems to be following them around the grounds. When an unfavorable change of plans forces them to stay overnight, Sam and Colby are in for the most terrifying encounter of their lives.

Crazy Story!

I have to admit, I thought this was going to be another cheesy thriller, but I was so wrong! It's definitely one of those books you cant stop listening to! It didn't follow a typical plotline, so it actually kept me guessing the whole time. Thanks for sharing your wild adventures!

Truly captivating and made my heart happy

The adventurous spirits that are the iconic Sam and Colby duo tell the story of their trip to Hawaii with a fictional twist at the end. The perspectives of Sam and Colby back and forth among the chapters made me feel like I was there and the thoughts they had were a subconscious thought of my own. A truly captivating and inspiring story - a friendship of two souls truly coalesced into one - this book gave me so many feelings, namely nostalgia.

Beautifully written and read, especially how each characters personalities were described and played exactly as they are in real life on Youtube and such.

All love,

Corinna

Not for me

I stopped reading this book after about two hours I just couldn’t take it anymore it is very juvenile I looked again at the description and it wasn’t labeled as a young adult but it sure sounded like that to me. The narrator will someday be good he has a lot of different character voices that are distinct however he has a tendency to shout everything is just too intense. Sorry but I just can’t like this.

amazing story!!! had me hooked from the beginning.

kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time! it definitely reminded me of Scooby-Doo zombie island a little bit which is a good thing. the narrators were awesome and captured the essence of sam and colby perfectly. 10 out of 10 I would read again and definitely recommend to all my friends.

Silly

It was just silly. Cliche'd and shallow, written from the perspective of a stoned frat-boy maybe? The characters seem overplayed and unbelievable, the attempt at intrigue and suspicion was never really accomplished. The whole Hawaii setting was an attempt to capitalize on the voodoo of the bayou or other dark settings, while drawing people in with the beauty of a hawaiian paradise. My favorite island is Kawai but I just couldn't believe the story or the setting in this one.
I couldn't put my finger on the exact nature of silliness but it was in every plot line. I ended up thinking it was a waste of the battery power on my device listening to it. Sadly.
