I had my reservations regarding this short story. A undead kid who goes to school and stuff? I must confess that I was a little skeptical of how that could work. I was terribly mistaken.
Yes, this story is about a young kid with an unique condition, his heart doesn't beat, his blood doesn't flow, and his lungs don't breath; yep, he is an undead, but with a soul, conscience, and a spirit of adventure and investigation.
The story begins when some school kids travelling to a Mansion, in which yearly is celebrated a treasure hunt on Halloween, and our protagonist, Spencer "Spook" Lawson, is VERY anxious about this trip, specially regarding the rumors the old house.
We are taken to a Lovecraftian story, and we experience it from the view point of a very special kid, who is eager to "see" what's beyond, the monsters, the horrors.
All and all it was a very cool story. A must read of all fans of the Call of Cthulhu RPG.
