When Cara hears a voice in her head commanding her to "Come to the cemetery," she knows time is running out. With no one else to turn to, Cara asks her secret crush, Jake Rogers, for help. As they begin to put together clues, the mysterious voice gets louder and it feels like she's losing her mind...

Can Jake and Cara unravel the ancient secret before she joins her friends in death?

 Come to the Cemetery (Young Adult Horror, #1) by Jackson Dean Chase

Come to the Cemetery (Young Adult Horror, #1)This very dark and eerie read from Jackson Dean Chase had me from the title, Come to the Cemetery. Everyone loves a little dark horror sometimes, don’t they? Something is happening at Duskhaven Cemetery, teens are dying and Cara has lost her best friends. Top it off, these girls were all found on top of the SAME grave! Coincidence, or is Cara the missing link? Is she cursed or somehow at fault? There is evil afoot and Cara needs answers, because something is going on and she is intent on finding out what.

Only an author with a little twist in their imagination could have written such a completely magnetic tale in so few words while keeping it on the young adult level. Jackson Dean Chase lights the dark and narrow path of a perfect campfire tale, designed to have one looking over their shoulder at every sound and wanting to scream, do NOT do that! Brilliant scenes, characters with a need to discover the truth, and the guts of a young adult heroine, not sure I could have done what Cara did. I can say that, if you need a dark tale to tell, read this, grab a flashlight for your face and scare the bejesus out of your friends! Great reading, and you know what they say, location, location, location…a cemetery in the dark…BOO!
