Recommends it for: children 8-12
Recommended to Georgia by: Casey Sean Harmon
I loved this book, and loved Casey Sean Harmon's old fashioned style of writing. Took me back to my Enid Blyton days, when children's literature was pretty light hearted and there was a strong moral theme running through most. I enjoyed the plot, the characters were endearing, and the varied array of creatures living in Everafter kept the imagination flowing.

For storyline, plot content, character build and flow I would actually have rated this 5 star but I dropped it to 4 as a couple of things

Loved it! A great story is one of the best gifts to give to a child. After reading The Everafter Chronicles by Casey Sean Harmon I was excited to give Casey’s adventurous book as a gift to my daughter. Filled with heartwarming action and suspense, the tale engages readers and takes them into a world where (as Casey signed in our book), ‘all things are possible!’

My daughter enjoyed learning about the many different creatures in Everafter. It kept her interest and we are both looking forward to m

Upon starting this book I found it to be a magical adventure of bravery, intelligence and team work. The characters are life like and seem to come out of the pages. The story is very well written and imaginative. The Land of Everafter Draws you in and doesn't want to let you go. In My opinion 'Reign of the Night Creatures' is a must read for all young readers.

Reign of the Night Creatures is an action-packed modern story in the brilliant tradition of the Chronicles of Narnia. James and his sisters are kept on their toes in the imaginative world of Everafter, where the battle of light versus dark rages. Who knows what darkness's next move will be?

A must read for all ages! The fast paced adventure and interactions between the children and the creatures they encounter keep you engaged in their adventure and turning the pages at record speed. Buy a copy for a child, but get one for yourself as well! You wont be disappointed!

I loved every minute of this book! It was fun, entertaining and light-hearted. The kids were so easy to relate to and well developed through out the book. I was hooked from the first chapter, now I can't wait to see what adventure the next book brings!! Well written and great for kids!

A fast-paced, fun adventure for young children. Would make a great bedtime story.

In full disclosure I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

This was a quick and simple story. It reminded me somewhat of traditional books that I read when I was younger such as the Chronicles of Narnia or Peter Pan, where a group of brothers and sisters are whisked of to a magical land and have an adventure.

There were a few points that were unbelievable, unrealistic, inconsistent or where logic seemed to go out of the window, but for the most part I think these were only noticeable as an adult

I enjoyed the story and thought it moved along great, but I do have to agree with others on some of things that were a little off about the book. I do think most kids won't notice and will find the story fun and engaging. I don't think this is a story for YA, but more along the younger to middle school ages. Definitely something my 6 year olds will like so I will be reading it to them.

I like what the book does convey:

1) In many homes, both parents do work and kids feel that loss when the parent

Casey's book is one of those type of distractions that keep your mind focused. I started reading it the other day during lunch. I found myself running late for work due to my interest in the book. I took the book with me to my car, and placed it in the passenger seat. Issue was I was at a very intriguing part and couldn't wait to pick it back up. So.... I picked it back up on my drive to work. Needless to say it wasn't a good idea. I nearly rear ended a car at a red light! Casey, your books are ...more

I absolutely LOVED this book! It’s one of those YA books that will suck in people of all ages. The main characters are siblings and the way that they look out for and take care of each other is a wonderful story to tell. Their adventures and all the creatures they meet are very well described. I was watching it all play out in my head like a movie! The author is descriptive without being overbearing and still keeps it simple enough for a younger audience. My only request is that he hurries up an ...more

A perfect story for my 3 children.

I found that this book ranks right up there with classic C. S. Lewis books. The story rolled out quite nicely and kept this reader enchanted for a few hours.

The story of a different world has been done before but rarely with as much imagination as this. A few different twists and turns keep you guessing what’s going to happen next. A perfect blend of a story about growing up and a fantastical setting make this book well worth the read.

The fact that he left it w

The Everafter Chronicles: Reign of the Night Creatures, by Casey Sean Harmon is a wonderful tale of a magical land and three siblings who end up there in the middle of the fight between the dark and the light. It is a very uplifting story as they face their fears and use their unique strengths to . . . (oops! Almost spoiled the ending!) There are Pirates, a Griffin, Phoenixes, and the family dog. Or not?

Casey, does a great job starting with a catalyst and continuing the build up. Though under the kids category, this book was a very exciting trip through a wonderful imagination.

I eagerly anticipate the next in series and will be sure to tell my local bookstores to display this book.

It should be on the Summer SOAR reading lists.
