Wow! I really enjoyed this book! This was absolutely my favourite red maple book! William Bell wrote an amazing book, it always kept me intrested because of its characters and of corse the main characters humor. I also really liked that there was to mysterys going on at once. This book was so good that I had went and read the first book, "Stones." He has now become one of my favourite authors. I recomend this book to those who crave adventure, mysterys or even books that connect to the past.

I really enjoyed Fanatics because it was a mix of mystery and religion. And those two things are very interesting to me. It is sort of like Haunting violet but less romance and more religion. My favorite character is Garnet because he didn't know what he world have to face and then what happened! I would recommend this book to anyone who like mystery and religion, haunting. That kind of thing. Something I kind of disliked about this book was that I didn't know many of the words or what they meant so I constantly had to check a dictionary because I don't like missing a part or misunderstanding it but still continue reading it.I also love the quote Raphella says to garnet. "A fear faced is a fear defeated" It's really inspiring! I would give it a 7/10!

A scary and adventure type of book full of ghost and mysterys. I thought Garent was a very interesting character and how he got into adventures. I loved how he and Rappella solved the crime of the mansion and how they figured out the "camo boys" were criminals.

The book Fanatics was very creepy and interesting at the same time. I like how more than 1 genre was used I the book. It was a kind of book you just can't stop reading.

Fanatics was a creepy book. I did enjoy it though. It was a real sit on the edge of your seat book. I couldn't put it down. It was great.

This book was ecellent! I liked how it contained bits of different genres. There was some action, a good amount of mystery, and a touch of fantasy. this book was very well written and I would read it again in a heartbeat!

the beginning of the book seemed kind of boring. as i read on it got interesting. at some points in the book i felt it had lost it suspenseful and haunting feel. i really like the character of ms.stoppini

It was some thing worth reading. The beginning was slow but it got better as I read.
