Gravediggers: Mountain of Bones (Hardcover)
Not currently in the store – Usually ships in 1-5 days
Ian was the 0ne who chased the majestic buck into the forest. (His motto: Act first, think later.) Kendra didn't want to become separated from the other sixth graders, but she followed Ian anyway, despite what her analytical mind told her. PJ followed him too. Even though he was scared, he figured he might catch some amazing footage with his video camera.
They all hoped to return to the hiking trail before anyone noticed they were gone. However, the mountain had other plans for them: dark, sinister plans that only nightmares are made of.
Now they don't know where they are. They don't know how to get home. They don't know what gruesome creatures lurk in the shadowsbut when they find out these grisly ghouls are actually ravenous zombies, will they be able to escape the mountain with their lives?
This first book in the Gravediggers series is a scary, mysterious, wild ride that will thrill readers to the very last page.
