A brand new Tales from the Scaremaster adventure brings a frightfully fun vampire mystery to life!

Best friends Zoe and Mateo are excited for their families' annual winter break vacation together. This year, they're going somewhere new: a ski lodge that promises to give them fun days snowboarding and sledding, and cozy nights with hot cocoa and scary stories around the fireplace. But the last thing they expect is for scary stories to come to life!

Enter Tales from the Scaremaster, a mysterious book with a mind of its own that starts writing Zoe and Matt's story. The book weaves a tale of ski lodge neighbors with a bloodsucking secret--could it be that their sneaky, bizarre next door neighbors at the lodge are actually vampires? It's up to Zoe and Matt to outwit and outlast the Scaremaster, and get to the bottom of this vampiric mystery....before they end up vampire victims!
