LoveReading View on Haunters

The dead and the living exist side by side in this thrilling time-travelling adventure. In David's recurrent dream, Eddie seems real and it seems like he's got something to tell David. That's scary enough but then David gets picked up by a gang with a white van and finds himself spirited away from all he knows. When David wakes, he's in a new world among other dream walkers. Like him, Eddie and Adam have the special power of time-travel. David has a special role to play in this story of an original kind of haunting. 

And a message from Barry Cunningham at Chicken House:

I first met Thomas Taylor when I asked him to draw the original Harry Potter cover. That was when I made a mistake telling Thomas what to draw and the book went to print with the wrong picture of Dumbledore on it. If Dumbledore has a brown beard on your copy, you’re very lucky – they’re very collectable! Now Thomas is scaring the pants off me with his brilliant writing. This is the most unusual ghost story I’ve read in a long time; it actually reveals what haunting is really all about. What is this startling man going to do next?

Thomas Taylor has also just written a ghostly story called Dan and the Dead in which Dan, with the help of a ghostly side-kick helps solve the problems for the undead.

Haunters Synopsis

Separated by generations, Eddie, Adam and David are linked by their ability to time-travel. Using their dreams, they can appear like ghosts, wherever and whenever they want. The first is the genius who discovers dreamwalking. The second is a Haunter, a dream-terrorist, determined to change history for his own ends. The last is the novice dreamwalker who must battle to save his family, and himself, from oblivion.
