Read in December, 2008

This was a riveting extension of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, grounding the story in the exile of a Faerie murderer who owes a tithe to his father every seven years: "Silver, gold, or human souls." Modern-day Callie, doing a story on the folk rock band Brass Rat for her high school paper, discovers that two of its members are exiled Fae with dangerous intent. Somehow she has to turn what she knows into a way to save the kids of her town, including her little brother, when they vanish while trick-or-treating the next night--Halloween.
