Zach Kalusky, host of Sci-D TV’s Xavier Paranormal Investigators, is ecstatic when he’s given the opportunity to explore the most haunted site in Chicago for a Halloween Special: Rosewood Asylum, a place long made off-limits by the local government, plagued by decades of mysterious fires and unexplained events. It’s Zach’s dream investigation- but there’s a catch: the network forces Xavier Paranormal Investigators to partner with the more dramatic-but less ethical-Demon Hunters. Now, Zach must fight for both his show’s integrity and his team’s loyalty while trying to protect his own secret: that he, himself, is possessed
Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum comes to life much like a real-life docu-drama one might view on an educational TV channel. The story moves along at a nice pace while steadily revealing small clues that will eventually answer the growing number of unanswered questions. Lies and suspicions between the two competitive paranormal investigative teams along with unexplained paranormal activity make for more than just an engrossing ghost story.
