Derek's brother Ronny isn't himself. Could the road to the afterlife be a two-way street? Derek's brother Ronny isn't himself. Ronny's body has been taken over by the long-dead soul of a man named Virgil Black. Lucky for him, Virgil is one of the good guys. Not all of them are. In fact, a Legion of evil souls is staging a serious comeback. And they're staging it at Bayou Malpierre, the site of Derek's most horrible nightmare. That nightmare is about to get even worse. EXCERPT: The house was empty, abandoned.

Tony Abbott leaves many questions unanswered about the dead, the living, and Derek himself, so it will be easy to put this first book down and dive headfirst into BAYOU DOGS, the next book, to re-join Derek's adventure. One person found this helpful.

The Forbidden Stone is the beginning Tony Abbott’s epic middle-grade series, a thrilling adventure packed with puzzles, intrigue, and action. The real action starts in book two, Bayou Dogs, when Derek is on the run from angry ghosts that have been set loose among the living. Abbott has put some serious thought into understanding the divide between life and death, mixing physics and metaphysics with ease.

the second of four book covers for the Haunting of Derek Stone series published by Scholastic books. these were a lot of fun to work on, and i actually had some great art direction. The Type and layout was done by Tim Hall. ADarkerBreed Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2009. Wonderful, something seems off about the type to me, but I love the sense of depth you achieve.

Two books in one"-Cover. Apple series"-Page 2 of cover. Reading level: 5; ages 9-13. Derek Stone just turned fourteen.

The transformed dead are haunting the 14 year old Derek Stone, but it's not just any dead. Very specific dead, all with a not so good purpose and linked together from specific times and events in history. Derek, unwillingly and unknowingly, is part of it all. He is the key to stopping it -- if he can only remember what happened in the bayou so long ago. This is one book of a series of 4. I am not a young reader, but I have thoroughly enjoyed following Derek from the beginning to the end. It is a scholastic book, so it is very easy to read. There are no filler pages in these books like you would find in more lengthy stories. They are not your standard ghost story either. I hated to see this series end after 4 books.

The series is great

Derek's life keeps getting stranger and stranger. For a boy who likes plain facts and doesn't like make believe or fantasy, his life has turned upside down. In Book One, City of the Dead, Derek is in a train wreck; he survives but believes his brother and father are lost. Then a number of weeks later his brother turns up, and it is his brother, but he is changed. The dead are coming back and they are waging a war between darkness and light. And darkness seems to be winning. For some reason the dead that have come back keep looking for and finding Derek. They believe he has knowledge about how to open the rift between the two worlds.

In this instalment, Derek and his 'Brother" are chased all over the French quarter of New Orleans. They are aided by an old musician, and their father reappears and enters the battle to help them. He gives them clues that lead them to Bayou Malpierre, a place that haunts Derek because he almost drowned there a few years earlier. The story in this segment progresses well - more enemies from the land of the dead manage to cross over. Abby Donner, another survivor from the train crash, wakes from her coma and Derek finds her and seeks any information she can remember. Yet again it leaves us with a cliff-hanger and eagerly waiting to start book three.

I stated in my first review that I believed the books could be marketed to teens or an adult audience by being combined into one longer volume. This second book further convinced me of the fact. Tony Abbot is the author of over 70 books for readers both young and young at heart. He is most known for his Secrets of Droon series and his bestselling novels Kringle and Firegirl.

Derek Stone was just your normal 14-year-old kid until he was in a train crash. Now, the souls of dead beings have crossed into the bodies of the new crash victims and taken over.

In the world of the dead there has been a war raging - and now the dead want to bring it over into the world of the living.

The rift is breaking and the dead are crossing into deceased bodies from the living world. They are all after Derek Stone, and he must do everything he can to escape them.

He has the help of a young man by the name of Virgil Black. Virgil wants to be dead and at peace, but with the war this is not possible. Instead, Virgil crossed into the body of Derek's brother, who died in the crash.

A few of the other crossovers are good allies, but not all. Many are on the bad side of the war and want the rift to be torn forever.

With the help of Virgil, Derek must try to reach his destination before the crossed-over dead do. A destination that holds a surprise for him that will unravel even more everything he thought he knew.

BAYOU DOGS is the second book in THE HAUNTING OF DEREK STONE series, following CITY OF THE DEAD. Readers will be pleased with this second installment.

Why aren't Abbot's books on the Kindle?
Four books in this series, why?
The main character, Derek Stone, has a brother who is supposed to be dead, but when Ronny shows up at the house, he is not the same brother Derek remembers. That is when things really begin to change! if this sounds interesting to you, then you should read this book . I hope you find this book review helpful, please click yes. :)
