Is winning a writing contest worth risking your life?

Nothing exciting ever happens in the town of Maplewood—that is, until famous thriller writer Ian Tremblin holds a short-story writing contest with a prize that seems to be the opportunity of a lifetime: five finalists will get to spend the evening with Tremblin himself in the haunted mansion Daemon Hall, and the winner of the best short story will see publication.

     Wade Reilly and the other finalists could never have imagined what they find lurking in the shadows of this demonic mansion. During a suspenseful night of tale-telling, strange incidents mix the realms of the real and the supernatural. What is Tremblin really up to, and can he be trusted? What about Daemon Hall—is it alive? And, more to the point, will any of the contestants make it out of this hall of horrors to tell their story?
     In the tradition of Stephen King, this chilling novel will have teen readers on edge in anticipation of whats to come with the next extinguished candle.

I read this in about 6 hours, over a span of 3 days. I thought this was a GREAT book! It had the thrills and chills, and I just couldn't put it down! With everything that's going on in the story, I don't see how anyone could not find this book exciting. At the end, I do believe there will be a second book.
