Seeing as this is a sequel, we'd hate to give any spoilers, so instead, we have the synopsis for book 1: THE CLACKITY!
Evie once again leaves her world behind to rescue Blight Harbor's ghosts in this second book in the bone-chilling middle grade Blight Harbor trilogy that's reminiscent of Doll Bones and Small Spaces.
Evie Von Rathe lives in Blight Harbor—the seventh-most haunted town in America—with her Aunt Desdemona, the local paranormal expert. Des doesn’t have many rules except Stay out of the abandoned slaughterhouse at the edge of town. But when her aunt disappears into the building, Evie goes searching for her.
There she meets The Clackity, a creature who lives in the shadows and seams of the slaughterhouse. The Clackity makes a deal with Evie to help get Des back in exchange for the ghost of John Jeffrey Pope, a serial killer who stalked Blight Harbor a hundred years earlier. Evie reluctantly embarks on a journey into a strange otherworld filled with hungry witches, penny-eyed ghosts, and a memory-thief, all while being pursued by a dead man whose only goal is to add Evie to his collection of lost souls. Will she ever find Des, or is The Clackity planning something far more sinister?
The Nighthouse Keeper by Lora Senf
This book had just the right amount of spookiness to appease any child who loves a good seasonal scare. It's the second book of the series and the author does a wonderful job incorporating events into the first few chapters. I love the main character Evie Von Rathe and the cast of unusual townspeople of Blight Harbor. The concept of everyone having a friendly house ghost that's a part of the family is so cool. Soon their house ghosts begin to disappear. Evie must figure out where they're going because they're not crossing over. A spooky, fun read for children 10 and up, who like the creepy side.
Thank you @lorasenfauthor, @simonandschuster, and @turnthepagetours for this book and the first book THE CLACKITY.
