Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Christopher Evan Welch skillfully juggles voices, most notably conveying the Spook's irascibility and Tom's earnestness. Yet it is the Bane that takes center stage with its echoing hiss and eerie, Yoda-like syntax. The violence and villains here are not for the faint of heart.” School Library Journal (audio review)
“This tale is more than a well-crafted horror story. Delaney infuses his characters with depth and emotion, but equally important, he grows his world by contributing significantly to the back story…Delaney also does an exceptional job of interweaving stories, with one plot point leading insistently to the next; at the book’s conclusion readers can go over all Tom has learned by leafing through his journal. Kids will breathlessly await Tom’s next adventure.” Booklist
“Readers will be hooked from the first line.”   Kirkus Reviews
