After their harrowing adventures, Middleburg's teens are hoping life will return to normal. Despite a tentative alliance between the goth Flatliners and the rich, preppie Toppers, any hope of peace is dashed when Topper girl Aimee arrives at the homecoming dance with Raphael, a Flatliner. A fight erupts between the two gangs and, in the midst of the rumble, a bizarre catastrophe occurs when Middleburg's homecoming queen discovers she has supernatural powers.
 

To make matters worse, Middleburg real-estate moguls who have bought up most of the land in the Flats have started evicting their tenants. They are searching for a priceless treasure prophesied in ancient Chinese writings and will stop at nothing to find it. But Raphael and his impoverished Flatliners vow to get it first and use it buy back their homes. Meanwhile, a handsome, charismatic half-angel, half-human comes to Middleburg with plans to steal Aimee from Raphael. As Raphael and his Flatliners and Zhai and his Toppers work to perfect their supernatural abilities and find the treasure, Aimee begins kung fu training, intent on becoming strong enough to locate and rescue her missing mother. When she discovers that the mysterious treasure may be the key to finding her mom, the race to find it intensifies.
 

But there are others who seek the treasure, too, forces powerful enough to reduce all of Middleburg, and perhaps the world, to ashes…

(MY THOUGHTS)    
   Ghost Crown is a paranormal, action packed adventure with mystery, revenge, and a ton of romance. J. Gabriel Gates and Charlene Keel has an amazingly creative minds, and has create an incredible storyline that has absolutely everything you could ask for in a novel. Ghost Crown left me in awe. I kept saying, Wow, wow, WOW! Just when you think Gates and Keel has peaked and the climax of the story reached, they show you that you still have a long way to go before reaching the top of their mountain as you with see with the cliffhanger ending that had me begging, Please, NO! Don't stop the novel here…

Raphael is feeling pretty good after he won the battle against Oberon in Dark Territory, and all is back to normal in Middleburg. His only worry now is how to get the girl he loves, Aimee, to go to the homecoming dance when her brother Rick is the leader of the Toppers. They are the rival gang in the middle of a gang war between Raphael's gang the Flatliners. Raphael will find out the dance is the least of his problems when Oberon's son, Orias, shows up in Middleburg. And if he thought Oberon was an evil, supernatural force to reckon with, Orias—who's also after revenge and after his girl—is going to give him a battle from hell. Not to mention the The Order of the Black Snake and his gang war with the Toppers…And they’re all after the treasure of the Dark Territory.

Romances, romance, and more romance. Gates and Keel has every kind of romance you can think of going on between this group of teenagers. The heart breaking kind, the hilarious kind, the ones who are trying to steal the others boyfriend or girlfriend, the jerk, and the one who’s just trying to have a romance. I definitely got my romance fix.

Ghost Crown will give you every kind of read you’re looking for in a YA novel—action, adventure, mystery, drama, paranormal, and romance. J. Gabriel Gates and Charlene Keel has left no stone unturned in The Tracks series. I recommend Ghost Crown as an all in one fantastic read!
