Lacks emotive qualities. (3 stars)
While I am most definitely a skeptic, I have always enjoyed tales of supernatural encounters. Lancaster has clearly spent much of his life in pursuit of answers to his own experiences with the paranormal. Unfortunately, I found most of Dark Spirits tediously slow and oft times quite repetitive. I'd dare even go so far as to note it as highly predictable.
If you're interested in the group dynamics of ghost hunting groups and less in having your spine tingled this might be just your cup of tea. Those wanting a read that will leave them afraid to turn off the lights this just isn't it.
