Prepare to scream!

Darius is excited that his cousin, Ryan, is coming to stay for a weekend in October. Though they used to be close, Darius hasn’t seen his cousin since Ryan moved to Vancouver from central B.C. several years before. The visit doesn’t get off to a good start. Ryan has changed and can’t stop talking about how much better the city is than the country.

Eager to win back his favour, Darius plans a trip to Scarecrow Farm, a local farm that morphs into a Halloween attraction each fall. The boys used to love visiting when they were younger. Only Scarecrow Farm is nothing like they remember and seems to have fallen on hard times. It’s not long before they become disorientated and lost in the corn maze. Just as they’re beginning to panic, they come across a younger boy who seems even more lost . . . not in the maze, but in this plane of existence!

Can Darius and Ryan escape before they become the latest two victims of the corn maze?

Haunted is a middle-grade fiction series set in towns and cities across Canada. Packed with action, genuine chills, and some healthy doses of humour to cut the tension, it’s perfect for fans of Goosebumps and Haunted Canada! Prepare to scream!
