Book Tour: Ghostlight by Kenneth Oppel | Spotlight

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for Ghostlight by Kenneth Oppel. I’ve only read one book by Oppel, Bloom, and loved his writing style. Even though that was a YA book, I knew he was an another I wanted to keep reading from, plus he’s Canadian so definately couldn’t pass up this tour! Again, I seem to be hoarding all the spooky reads for this Fall, and I’m really hoping I make it to this one! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the tour schedule for other content creators.

Meet Author

I was born in Port Alberni, a mill town on Vancouver Island, British Columbia but spent the bulk of my childhood in Victoria, B.C. and on the opposite coast, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. At around twelve I decided I wanted to be a writer. I started out writing sci-fi epics then went on to swords and sorcery tales and then, during the summer holiday when I was fourteen, started on a humorous story about a boy addicted to video games. 

About The Book

Author: Kenneth Oppel
Publisher: Alfred A Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publishing Date: September 6th, 2022
Page Length: 400
Genre: Paranormal | Ghost Story | Canadian

Synopsis:

One teen’s summer job scaring tourists with ghost stories takes a terrifying turn when he accidentally summons the spirit of a dead girl–and she has demands. . . .

The award-winning author of Airborn delivers a roller-coaster ride of a story about the wakeful and wicked dead.

Rebecca Strand was just sixteen when she and her father fell to their deaths from the top of the Gibraltar Point Lighthouse in 1839. Just how they fell–or were they pushed?–remains a mystery. And their ghosts haunt the lighthouse to this day. . . .

Gabe tells this story every day when he gives the ghost tour on Toronto Island. He tries to make it scary enough to satisfy the tourists, but he doesn’t actually believe in ghosts–until he finds himself face to face with Rebecca Strand.

The true story of her death is far more terrifying than any ghost tale Gabe has told. Rebecca reveals that her father was a member of the Order, a secret society devoted to protecting the world from “the wakeful and wicked dead”–malevolent spirits like Viker, the ghost responsible for their deaths. But the Order has disappeared, and Viker’s ghost is growing ever stronger.

Now Gabe and his friends must find a way to stop Viker before they all become lost souls. . .
