Love stories about magic? What about blood thirsty monsters and the secret society that hunts them? Secret Seekers Society is jam packed with all that and more.
Secret Seekers Society and the Beast of Bladenboro follows the young protagonists Hunter Glenn, and Elly Ann through an adventure ripe with adversity, paranormal monsters, secret societies, and most haunting of all, a life without their parents.
The book follows both, the sibling’s emotional struggle from their parent’s sudden loss, as well as their physical journey into a new and strange “home”, an ancient and creepy mansion known only as the Belmonte Estate.
It is here where they first learn of their new guardian, an eccentric old man named Professor Clandestine and the rest of the mansion’s caretakers. Tossed into their bedroom, and locked away under the pretense of “safety concerns” it does not take long for the children to hatch an escape plan.
Follow the children as they slowly unravel the secrets of their parent’s true identities, the origin of the strange Mansion, and their inheritance into an ancient secret society of monster hunters known as Seekers.

Excerpt from book:
“These aren’t real, right?” Hunter added, a bit baffled by the conversation.
“I don’t know, you tell me,” Margot added slyly.
“Are you a believer?” she asked.
“In what?” Hunter replied.
“Of the unknown, of course,”
Ms. Ellingbee joined in. “Of fairy tales, legendary creatures, magical items, and of course all those wondrous little things in between.” She smiled.
“Oh…..” Hunter paused for a moment, thinking of the question.
