Publisher Description:

In a devilishly dark and funny debut, a teen finds himself the unwitting beneficiary of eight enslaved and angry ghosts seeking bloody vengeance.

When Luke Manchett's estranged father dies suddenly, he leaves his son a dark inheritance: a collection of eight restless spirits, known as his Host, who want revenge for their long enslavement. Once they figure out that Luke has no clue how to manage them, they become increasingly belligerent, and eventually mutiny.

Halloween (the night when ghosts reach the height of their power) is fast approaching, and Luke knows his Host is planning something far more trick than treat. Armed with only his father's indecipherable notes, a locked copy of The Book of Eight, and help from school outcast Elza Moss, Luke has just thirteen days to uncover the closely guarded secrets of black magic and send his unquiet spirits to their eternal rest--or join their ghostly ranks himself.


Contributor Bio(s): Hunt, Leo: - Leo Hunt wrote Thirteen Days of Midnight in his first year of college and signed with an agent the following year. When he was younger, he wanted to be either an archaeologist or an author, and when he learned that archaeologists didn't unearth piles of perfectly preserved dinosaur bones every time they put a spade in the ground, he decided to write books instead. He says the inspiration for Thirteen Days of Midnight came from "a desire to write an homage to the horror stories of Stephen King and H. P. Lovecraft that I used to devour when I first started reading adult novels. So I started thinking about a Faust-type story in which the protagonist's father had made a deal with the devil and there were unfair repercussions for him." Leo Hunt lives in northeast England.
