What a read! This book is definitely not for the faint of heart. If books like Goosebumps or Scare Scape intrigue you, or even if you just like a good scare every now and then, this novel is calling out to you (just don't blame me if you jump at the slightest sound from then on!) Set in a town with a notorious reputation, at least to some, of containing countless monsters and eerie objects, Emrys Houtman is only too excited about the spookiness of the area. However, things get a little too scary for him when he and his friends realize that the monsters are actually more than just fiction. This realization leads them through an adventure filled with tension and terror. But perhaps the scariest thing of all is the fact that the children don't have the answer to a very important question: will they even live through it? I enjoyed reading this novel, even with the occasional checks to make sure no one was at my bedroom door. The authors expertly combine a compelling story with supernatural beings to create a novel that is truly among the monarchs of horror. With wiki articles about various monsters sprinkled within the pages and spooky cliffhangers at nearly every chapter, this book will prove to be a challenge to stop reading until the end.
