    One thought on “Dark Spirits: A Man Terrorized by the Supernatural”

    1. 5 starsHuge thanks to Stephen Lancaster, Llewellyn Worldwide, ltd and NetGalley for this copy in exchange for an honest review.I don't get creeped out very often, guess I've been desensitised by all the books I e read before and all the movies I've picked to watch, so to find something that gave me goosebumps and freaked me out a little was a very good thing.Not all of the book has that creepy feeling (not for me anyway) but one certain part really was. It's good to see the 'human' side of Paran [...]

    2. This book made me sad. Not like cry cry sad or otherwise emotionally moved, but sad that this passes as publishable. Granted, it is a book by a "ghost-hunter" about his "encounters", so I was not expecting this would be a work of literature, but I expected a modicum of what I was promised: "Dark Spirits chronicles [Stephen Lancaster's] most terrifying investigations over the last fifteen years, highlighting how those cases have affected him and the ghost-hunting field as a whole". In a nutshell, [...]

    3. I am fascinated by the paranormal. So when I saw this book available on NetGalley, I was excited.Unfortunately, while the writer's experiences were interesting, the writing was too wordy for me. And repetitive. And wordy. It took me a long time to get through. I ultimately ended up skimming through each chapter/story, because the author took so long to get to the point! He would write one thing, and then a few sentences later say the same thing, a little bit differently. Then go on to describe s [...]

    4. I sort of expected I would eye-roll at this book, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't induce such a reaction. I agree with the author that the ghost hunting television shows have seriously injured the reputation of any would-be paranormal investigation team, so it was nice to see that this book was written with the intention of sharing personal experiences from memory of someone who lived through it rather than everything being silly and superficial. The author makes an interesting cas [...]

    5. I've been reading ghost tales for YEARS. And nothing has spooked me more than Stephen Lancaster's writing. If you're looking for good spooky stories, his books fill that craving admirably. And if you're a paranormal investigator yourself, or if you just believe solidly in supernatural phenomena, the Lancaster's books are a real treat. They'll either have you cowering in bed with the covers pulled up over your head, or yelling out loud, "DANG, I wish I could go ghost hunting with this guy!"

    6. I really enjoyed the forward to this book. It starts out with an introduction describing what to expect from the stories in the book. This is a very thought provoking intro and I was delighted to have picked this up. The book is laid out almost like an anthology but showcases Stephen Lancaster's most interesting and sometimes horrifying work.The cases are mostly broken up but some chapters do have stories that extend beyond but for the most part the chapter titles are about the case he was worki [...]

    7. Dark Spirits Dark Spirits is the latest book from paranormal researcher and investigator Stephen Lancaster. This is a collection of some of the stories/investigations that have stuck with Lancaster the most during his career as an investigator, and he presents them with commentary of what he learned, felt, saw, and feels. There are eleven chapters in Dark Spirits, and most of them are intertwined with "something" that may well have attached itself to Lancaster. The first story, "The Fascinating [...]

    8. Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/reviews/ In Dark Spirits, Stephen Lancaster talks about some of his scariest cases to date. From a haunted plantation house to a spirit that possibly followed him home, all the cases are memorable. Some are a bit over the top, and don’t seem all that believable, but I’m willing to give the author the benefit of the doubt.I do feel that in some cases, as with the spirit possibly following the author home, there might also be an edge of para [...]

    9. This book chronicles the author's own life as a professional paranormal investigator.Stephen does a wonderful job of placing the reader inside his head and inside the ghostly experiences. Some of the cases he describes are downright terrifying at times, while others are more benign.The book flows nicely throughout the chapters chronicling the past three years of his life in the field.As others have mentioned, the book isn't as scientifically based as his previous works. Stephen brings forth a ve [...]

    10. If you enjoy a good old scary story coupled with mystery, intrigue and darkness then here is a book that you will enjoy.Lancaster has a good story-telling style and so Dark Spirits rattles along like an old skeleton dragging its chains behind it.How much of it you feel you can read at a time will depend mainly on your nerves but I reckon they will be pretty well shredded after a very short period of time!Wonderfully dark and deliciously unnerving here is book for those who like to feel the sensa [...]

    11. Stephen Lancaster is a long-time paranormal investigator. In this book he focuses on seven of his most interesting cases and man, they are exactly what a ghost story fan wants to read. They’d be even better, though, if Lancaster wasn’t such a mediocre writer (yes, I know, who am I to talk). It’s not painful to read, but it’s sort of clunky and awkward and makes experiences that should keep me up at night a little bit bland.

    12. I thought that this book was ok but I did really expect a little bit more from it, it was an easy read but from reading the blurb I didn't really feel that it met with my expectations. I did enjoy the writing style and I know that the author has written other books so may look at getting another of his books to hopefully learn a bit more about his past encounters.

    13. **This book was reviewed via Netgalley**In paranormal investigator Stephen Lancaster’s second book, Dark Spirits, he covers a series of events and investigations detailing some of his more interesting moments as a paranormal investigator. Ok, I'm going to be honest. This book hit several 'frission’ points for me, things that just rubbed me wrong. What I liked: *The memory theory interesting perspective, which I respect, though disagree with. For me, a decedent's energy doesn't become random [...]
