--Spoiler free review--
First of all, thanks to Mr. Cypert for giving me a free copy for me to read.
I have to say that I'm not used to read fantasy books, but I liked this one a lot. It was very original! The whole alternate reality is very well constructed, but the alternate reality also interacts with the real world.
Scapemaker is about a boy, Matthew Namely, that is forced to discover a dark and magical world in his dreams to prove his father, that's resting in coma in a hospital in the real world, is not guilty of murder.
I would describe this book as a mixture of Inception, The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter and Fringe (yes, the TV show) If you like any of those things, you'll have a great time reading this book.
Though there were some typos, I completely understand that. Cypert is an independent publisher. And I'm not a native english speaker so typos don't bug me at all.
This book has everything: Goblins, zombies, time-travel, shape-shifters, etc. It is an exciting ride beyond the borders of the imagination.
This is the story of Dumdie Swartz, a woman who ended up being homeless after she lost her job. She has a very intriguing quality, but also very problematic. Because of her ability to see ghost, she ended up living in the streets. But now she has been rescued, and is living in the Archinhauser Shelter for Homeless Women. When a heir of the woman who owned the house threatens their destiny, she tries to use her ability to overcome the difficulties.
At first, I thought it was a spooky ghost story, but it's not. It's a tale of how to overcome problems. I liked this approach very much, it was unusual but fitting.
I would have liked a little more insight of the past life of Dumdie, maybe her working before the incident or more details of how she lived in her car, how she met Hanna, etc.
Anyway, The Ghost in the Closet is a fresh approach to the classic ghost story, with a touch of urban fantasy.
