This third installment in a planned fantasy-mystery series keeps the charm, suspense, and adventure of the first books, along with heaping doses of creepy atmospheres and a spine-tingling legend. The colorful, eccentric townsfolk from the first two books are back in Shadowghast, and of course the dynamic duo of Herbie and Violet, too. The short chapters with cliffhanger or surprise endings keep the pages turning, and Herbie's quirky, sometimes funny, and always sincere voice make it a great choice for reading aloud.

Big kids and tweens will relate to Herbie and Violet as they figure out what makes them work as a team, how to draw on each other's strengths, and even how to agree to disagree. Hints of an even deeper, darker secret and Herbie's possible connection to it will have fans eager for the next installment.
