One of my favorite books as a teen! I recently found and purchased a copy of this for my own teenager, and couldn't put it down myself as an adult. This was probably more nostalgic for me, rather than actual good reading this is likely not impartial on my part.

It's too bad they are not reprinting more of the supernatural-style books of the 80's, as this series might find a new generation of readers.

I read all of the books in this teen horror series over and over in junior high and high school. I'm sure if I read them now I would find them hideous (in the bad way), but because I loved them so much then, I'm giving them all five stars!

I wanted to read the Dark Forces books as a child, but my Mom thought the winged imp on the cover meant it was Satanic. Reading one now, 30 years later, I can tell her she needn't have worried. :)

This is a story of the WASPy-est teenagers who ever lived who run afoul of their black maid, who is of course also a voodoo priestess. Thrill to bad dreams and shredded dresses! The cover of the book never happens. There may be a monster but it is never seen and doesn't do anything.

This is a perfectly f

I remember owning this back in the late 80s. According to the inside jacket the third printing was October 1987, which would've made me 12 at the time. A perfect age for this sort of horror story, which is quite terrifying in places. Simply written, but solid characterization and pace throughout. Got me thinking: they should do a movie or TV series based on these books. Like "Tales from the Darkside," but for the YA set.

Nowhere on the cover does it say it's a kids book. Also, not enough swamp, or voodoo.
