Really bland, predictable and silly. Obviously I have high standards for horror, and this book doesn't meet any of them. Overall, there were a variety of problems that I had with this story; not just the fear factor (or lack thereof.) The dialogue seemed dated when this story is set in modern day, which often led to a very cheesy, inappropriate comical effect. None of the characters seemed to have much development, even our main character, who goes through quite a challenging ordeal. What could have been the start of a very interesting series failed due to very poor execution. Needless to say, I will not be continuing on with this series.
