...The story itself is wonderfully creepy, and I was hooked from the first moment....

We meet Max on the bus to his grandfather’s house, having been sent away for the summer to help his mother make ends meet. From his first encounter with a disturbing stranger, the story moves swiftly to the apparently haunted house and crowds of strangers in black robes and that’s before the real plot even begins. The story itself is wonderfully creepy, and I was hooked from the first moment.

I’m not going to spoil this but readers of YA fantasy should definitely give this a read. It would be of particular interest to fans of the Tim and Two Witches, Harry Potter, or Magic in the Wind books, but the author has taken this familiar idea and made it entirely his own.

As regards presentation, this book has decent formatting, grammer and no annoying spelling errors or typos. There is nothing to distract or detract from the story.

Thoroughly enjoyable and I look forward to finding out more about Max.

Other reviews you might like:


  • The Return of the Key
    Modern themes crossed with old ideas produce a charming, intriguing fantasy, great for younger readers and good for older ones too.
  • The Trouble With Pixies (Edinburgh Elementals Book 1)
    In some ways the attitude is similar to Ghostbusters or Men In Black - except in this case it's pixies, not ghosts or aliens.
  • A Thousand Paper Dragons
    What started as a fish-out-of-water story quickly evolves into something far more. Fantasy and YA readers should definitely pick this up.
