The Crowfield Demon

The Crowfield Demon is a middlegrade/YA fantasy by Pat Walsh, and the sequel to The Crowfield Curse.

If you haven’t read The Crowfield Curse yet, check out my review of it this last Monday. I encourage you to avoid this review until you have read the first book.

You’ve been warned!

Continuing on…

Will spent the winter learning that there was a lot more to the world than he initially thought. There are hobs, fay, curses, angels, and demons. And while uncovering all of this, he unfortunately was noticed by the Dark King of the Unseelie Court, Comnath. Not in a good way, either.

So as the spring begins to arrive, Will knows to keep his eyes open. It’s any day now that he will be in peril again. But now he knows he has the Sight, the ability to see beyond the mortal world into the realms of Old Magic, and he has a friend and protector in the warrior fay Shadlock and the little, faithful hob, Brother Walter.

Yet, an unexpected threat emerges – Crowfield Abbey has begun to crumble, and in terrifyingly strange ways. The stone faces of the saints break away before anything else. When checking the chapel, many feel like they’re not alone, or they see a frightening being the size and shape of a man, but with a crow’s head. It’s not natural…

A heathen creature from a pagan past is, somehow, reemerging in the present and has its eyes set on destroying everything and everyone at the Abbey… including Will.

I thought The Crowfield Curse was exceptional, and I am happy to announce that, for me at least, The Crowfield Demon was as great, if not better!

We get a super creepy start with Robin, an increasingly odd and alarming boy Will’s age, which is only the beginning of a trail of chilling events that take place in this second book. There is such a dark, magical, ominous tone to The Crowfield Demon that is sucks you into its suspenseful, fast-paced plot before you know it!

This was a quick read for me, which I love. It’s even more eerie that The Crowfield Curse, with higher stakes and more danger. It’s an rousing thriller with great themes of loyalty and good vs. evil. I adore the characters, which are penned so well that they are three-dimensional without, it seems, trying too hard. Love it!!

The end seemed to hint to at least one more Crowfield book – I very much hope so! This is a series that can be read by any age and appreciated very much. So what are you waiting for?

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.


When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Titanic: S.O.S.

S.O.S. is the third and final book in Gordon Korman's middle-grade Titanic trilogy.

This is the third book in a trilogy, book addicts! You must, I repeat, must read the first two books (Unsinkable and Collision Course) before you read this review. Otherwise you are just going to ruin all the twists! Sure, we know the Titanic sinks - but the surprises that are revealed about our characters, among other things, should not be spoiled!

But all of you that have read the first two books (which I hope are many of you, because this a great series), can rest assured that I won't spoil anything from S.O.S. itself - just a basic recap and my opinion.

Here goes:

The Titanic is sinking. No one wants to believe it, but the bow is almost imperceptibly starting to dip into the freezing Atlantic Ocean - and our four main characters are thrown into a race for survival.

Paddy is locked up below deck, having finally been caught as a stowaway. In one cell over are the very criminals that wish him dead…


Why hello there, loyal readers!

It's been a long, long time since I last wrote about a new novel - or wrote much of anything original. Life has definitely changed for me in many ways, changing how and where I devote my time.

But... whaddya know? I managed to finally finish a book!

Gardenia is a YA genre mash of murder mystery with a dash of sci-fi/fantasy, written by author Kelsey Sutton.

When Ivy's best friend died, it wasn't a surprise to her.

Because, ever since she was little, Ivy has seen the numbers over everyone's heads. Their countdown, if you will.

But she didn't know the cause of her best friend's death would be... murder.

Labled as a bit of an outcast, due to her odd behavior and reaction to Vanessa's death, Ivy finds herself more alone than ever as she is determined to find her friend's killer.

And she doesn't have much time, herself... as she's known her whole life.

Now, she realizes, it may be that she may give up her life to catch…
