The Source is back (insert scary music here). This book took me a little bit to read. Not because I didn't enjoy it - I've just been so busy. BUT I wanted to finish this book that I would pick it up and read it any time I got the chance.

Eve is back and trying once again to save two worlds from impending doom. The Source has moved, and no one knows where they have gone, but they all know evil doesn't just go away. We go on a journey all the way to New York city, as well as getting another chance

This book was perfectly horrible! Horrible meaning amazingly awesome, of course. Eve's world once again sucked me in and would not let go until this part of Eve's story was finished!

I love Eve's family! They are just so close-knit and all around awesome! And I was also glad to see new the new URNS agent. That was just wow! Funny too.

As for Warner, he has surprised me once again! Don't know what to make of this kid yet...but I'm excited to find out m

Robert Gray's Eve Hallows and the Book of Shrieks (book one in The Nightmare series) was one of my favorite MG reads last year and I had been eagerly awaiting the release of the second book all summer. And it turns out Eve Hallows and the Book of Shadows is even more awesome and fun than the first book!

After the events on Halloween, when Eve and her friends came face to face with The Source and his buggy minions, life has been rather boring in the human world. But then Eve is summoned back to Gr

I recieved a free copy of this book for my honest review.

Book 2 of the Eve Hallows books is even better than the first. This second book pics up right where the first one left off. After having found the Book of Shrieks, Eve is called back to Gravesville for a meeting with the Director of URNS (AKA the Grim Reaper). Upon returning home, she finds that she is no longer welcome and war is looming. Thence her adventure begins.

I love all the characters in the Hallows world. Eve is such a strong fema

Eve Hallows is a teenage girl who was raised in Gravesville, a world of monsters. Even though she is a human, her monster parents took her in as an infant when she was abandoned.

Eve Hallows and The Book of Shadows picks up right where the first book left off. It is only a few weeks later and Eve has been summoned back to Gravesville by the Director of URNS. He has a special task just for her, and even though she is feeling unappreciated and like everyone is keeping secrets from her, how can she

Eve Hallows and the Book of Shadows was another fantastic Middle Grade adventure read. As with the first one, I enjoyed reading it immensely; all though I did enjoy this one a little more than book 1. The easy flow to the story and the characters were so much fun. The characters are evolving along with the adventure and it is highly addictive reading.

After Eve escapes her encounter with The Source, the family is called back to Gravesville. Eve is horribly excited about seeing her old friends aga

Eve Hallows and the Book of Shadows follows the adventures established in the first book of the series, Eve Hallows and the Book of Shrieks (you can read my review of Book One here). Where we left our heroes, Eve found herself a human living in Gravesville, the world of monsters, and somehow the one chosen to guard The Book of Shrieks (and the subsequent books, the second of which is the Book of Shadows). These books were supposedly used to create the land of monsters and are very important to t ...more

Even better than the first book!!!!!!

If one lives in our world, as I do, this book is fabulous. If one lives in Gravesville, it was horrible- horrible and ten more horribles!

I love the characters in this story. Eve reminds me of human Marilyn living amoung the Munsters. She's different but pays no attention to the differences. Mom is a snake headed, petrifying gorgon. Dad is a shapeshifter and brother Sam is a ghoul....The family is a tight unit. You can palpate the love they feel for each other

Read this aloud to my nine year old and he enjoyed it as much as the first one. I asked how many stars to give it and he said, "ALL of them! I love these books. When is the next one?"

I was a bit surprised b the anticlimactic ending and found myself feeling frustrated by the books' failure to ever really DO anything. I also got irritated by Eve's poor judgment and snippy attitude, but this review isn't about me, it is about how much my son enjoyed the book! It is one of his very favorite series!
I was given a copy of this book for review purposes as part of a blog tour hosted on "I'm A Reader, Not a Writer"'s blog. Check out her blog here: and check out my blog post on or after Jan 22, 2014 here:

I absolutely love this series! It is adorably cute and exciting. It is full of suspense, action, heroism, and humor. I cannot wait to read the third book in this series!

This series is such a great read! I'm anxious to see what happens next for Eve and the gang. I'll definitely seek out more of Roberts work in the future.

I didn't know if Eve could out do herself after the first book. Book 2 was a scream! Awesome and exciting follow up! Loved it.

Robert Gray is a writer. If that job description doesn't impress you, how about fantasy writer? Too general? Well, he doesn't get insulted if you call him a horror writer. If horror's not your thing, then scratch out horror and replace it with suspense. And for the kiddies, you can slap on a YA or MG in front of that title.

Gray lives in Bushkill, Pennsylvania with his wife and two children.
