Majestic Hollow Paperback by Laurel Veil
Twelve-year-old Joe Sebastian feels depressingly average. His older brother Cameron, a football star, gets all his parents’ attention while Joe’s left babysitting his Van Helsing-obsessed little brother.
Maybe that’s why Joe likes Cole. Cole has no family responsibilities; he’s a runaway living in the local cemetery, surrounded by iron crosses forged by Joe’s great-great-grandfather, once a blacksmith for the sleepy harbor town of Majestic Hollow.
Cole has his own reasons for befriending Joe and social outcast Vidonia Finkle, reasons forced on him by Belzore, the powerful being known in local folklore as The Boogey Man. Belzore wants nothing less than total control of Majestic Hollow. With an army of vampires, werewolves, and witches at his command, he should be able to take over easily. So why does Belzore fear Joe and Vi, or need to manipulate an unwilling Cole?
The answer lies in a secret buried in both the town’s past and the cemeteryâ€”if Joe and his friends can uncover it. More than Majestic Hollow is at stake. If the town falls, Belzore’s infernal minions will infest all of North America. Joe’s going to have to be much more than average to stop this invasion.
