    callie_b's book review was featured in The Beast (The Darkdeep).
    After finally getting the Darkdeep under control (or so they thought), Opal, Emma, Logan, Tyler, and Nico realize that there's more to Still Island and the houseboat than meets the eye... Opal starts hearing a weird voice in her mind, directing her and telling her what to do next, and Opal just KNOWS that it's the green alien-like blob Thing in a Jar. As the 5 friends discover more and more about their jobs as Torchbearers, things just get crazier. It's the season of Halloween in Timbers, and with the chilly weather and pumpkin spice lattes, tourists are drawn in by the town legend of the Beast. And not just tourists. A low-quality YouTube series is in town, hoping to capture footage of the Beast and film interviews with kids in town to gain fame and fortune. When the Torchbearers find out that the legendary Beast is REAL, they have to do everything they possibly can to stop the camera crew -and the rest of the town- from finding him or the other figments that have been running rampant with no end in sight. Will the Torchbearers be able to wrangle all the figments into place? Where is Thing in a Jar from, anyway? And why is the tide turning red right outside Still Island and the newfound yet mysterious Rift? I really really really loved this book! One thing I would recommend is reading the first book in the series, "The Darkdeep," before reading this sequel. If not, it's easy enough to pick up, but I did find it helpful to read the first book! It was as fantastic as this book was! I loved how the alternating perspectives switched between Opal and Nico, and I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book! I would totally give this book 5/5 stars, and I recommend this series to anyone looking for a spooky Halloween-y mystery series to read this fall! Double thumbs up!

    Hey guys! It's been awhile since I've been on Dogo. (3 months to be exact... yikes!) Could someone catch me up on what I've missed? Like who's new, who's changed their username, what's the latest news, and such. If someone could do that for me, thanks! ;D <3
