Though it qualifies as a horror book this book is not as scary as I thought it would be. At least not for me. But that doesn't mean that this book wasn't good. In fact, it was almost as good as the first one and that's saying something because Daemon Hall is one of my favorite books to read.

Even creepier than book 1. Can't wait for it to hit the bookstores!!!
