Alternate worlds offer fresh perspectives, and this seaside adventure has fresh scares galore. In The Nighthouse Keeper: Blight Harbor, Book 2, Lora Senf knows how to generate suspense rooted in friendship. Evie is motivated by deep feelings of empathy in her search to help people who are already dead. The narrative is pushed to new heights in this sequel, with more thrills and chills. Atmospheric black-and-white illustrations by Alfredo Caceres set the mood well. A good dose of spookiness and a strong heroine will leave readers ready for the final book in this trilogy.
