Sliding Beneath The Surface [The St. Augustine Trilogy

Sliding Beneath the Surface - Doug Dillon This is the first book in The St. Augustine Trilogy. It is certainly intriguing!Jeff Golden is a fifteen year old who is caught up in some scary paranormal events. He is scared and he enlists the help of his best friend, Carla, and a Shaman by the name of Lobo to get to the bottom of things.This is a fantastic YA paranormal horror that kept me on the edge of my seat. The story is told well, and has a fantastic flow. I'm not sure if the author was trying to tell a horror story, or give a history lesson though, as it went from an eerie and compelling tale into a brief foray into American history with a paranormal twist. I did, however, enjoy the story very much. I loved Jeff's character, as he tried to come to terms with dealing with the paranormal events. I could see his emotional growth as events unfolded. The other characters were intriguing too, and I am looking forward to reading the remaining books in the trilogy.Doug Dillon has written a compelling tale that will capture the imagination of the reader, and take them on a journey filled with mystery, danger and intrigue. I recommend this book to younger readers (15+) and those who love YA, paranormal or horror genres. - Lynn Worton
