The Crowfield Demon (Crowfield Abbey #2)
What lies beneath?
Things are not right at Crowfield Abbey. The building has begun to crumble. And what Will finds beneath the floor of the side chapel is truly terrifying.
Is this the end of Crowfield forever?

How I write reviews for awesome books.
Step 1: Read a book (Duh!)
Step 2: Finish the book and celebrate my achievement with imaginary fans!
Step 3: "Write" a review.
Step 4: Post fanart and random comics instead.
I don't know why I'm addicted to middle-grade children horror books... Crowfield Abbey is not your typical kids series such as Harry Poter or Percy Jackson. We don't get a school for witches and wizards in the Scottish highlands or a hidden camp fo ...more
The Crowfield Demon is even better and spookier than The Crowfield Curse. I didn’t realize how familiar the abbey had begun to feel after one relatively short book; when the structure begins to fail, it’s like a shattering of the world, ...more
This book is definitely scarier than the last one, because of the ch ...more
The strength of this story was the characterizations of our heroes - William, the hob, Shadlock and Brother Snail. Most of the other brothers are either insufferable or useless or both, except for poor Peter. (The hob, in particular, is a favorite.) I felt the characterizations were kind of flat in the first book - so it's a definitely improvement there, but the secondary charact ...more

The Crowfield Abbey is crumbling away, tormented by freak storms and a mysterious shadow that lurks in the corners, haunting the stone masons who are attempting to repair the damage.

Well here comes Crowfield Demon and it appears as if my wishes have been granted. Walsh appears to stray from giving me graphic details about prayers, chants, and chores, and actually foc ...more
It is now March 1348 and a year has passed since the shenanigans involving the fallen angel in the woods and the subsequent battle between good and evil. Surely, peace will now reign in this cloistered domain but alas, there is no rest for the wicked given the evil aura which se ...more
By far the most interesting character is the reserved Shadlok. Cast out from his own kind, he finds life among humans difficult, and is slow to trust William, whom he is now bound to. William himself becomes more entangled by the plots of evil, but even when frightened, he pushes forward, determined ...more
As far as plot goes, this one was quite engaging, but the story is really about the interesting characters. I particularly like that they are not black and white, even the bad guys a ...more
I'm just not too fond of demons (always excepting those in THE DEMON'S LEXICON, of course), and am put off by their inclusion in ...more
