really liked it
bookshelves: ya, supernatural, horror_suspense, books-into-movies
Read in November, 2009

As I read the first of these three volumes, my initial two thoughts were (1) Snakes are not slimy and (2) I don't really like Darren's character very much--and this bugged me. Now that I've finished these three stories, I have to admit that I ended up liking Darren's character after all and enjoyed the story--and, book 3 left me wanting more. Is Evra safe? Will Darren see his family again? Steve? Debbie? Does Mr. Crepsley rejoin the Generals? What about the Little People? Is Lefty a friend? Long and short? I was pulled in.

Laura I almost checked that out from the library the other day. Let me know what you think of it.

Ronda Well, the movie was fun so Eli and I ended up buying two copies b/c neither of us wanted to wait to read it. I'll let you know.

Jennifer Morrill I just own a copy of the 1st three books. It's coming up in the next week or two in my TBR pile.

Jennifer Morrill Er...won...not own. Although I now own the copy I won. :) Gotta love it when the fingers and brain don't communicate.

Ronda I want to know how you win copies of these books! Cool! I'm thinking I'll be digging around for Book 4 pretty soon.

Jennifer Morrill Book blog giveaways. I have a list of quite a few that are running on some various sites on my blog.

I've been a lucky duck lately too!

Ronda Well heck. I've seen listings for book giveaways before and just disregarded them as "not likely". I'll have to pay more attention! Thanks.

Sophie Evra is safe. I think. When they said rescue Evra, I'm pretty sure they meant get him out of Murlough's den.
