"Beware of the one who hides, who watches in the dark!"

Before Jenny Logan even entered the forbidding castle - a replica of the Worthingtons' ancestral home in England - a terrified stranger warned her away. Was the warning real - or just another example of the family's macabre sense of humor? Jenny couldn't be sure. She only knew her summer vacation with her father sudden

Oh, the Internets. Sometimes it's hard for me to remember what life was like before you, when I was doomed to forget all but the slightest of fragments from books I once loved, never to read them again. But now, thanks to one of the massively awesome sides of the Internet--fantastic book lovers who will help you to remember the titles and authors of books about which you only remember a small number of details--I am able to be reunited with the books I ate up when I was but a preteen back in the ...more

I loved this when I was a kid and had a pretty intense crush on the character Wit. I apparently was a very lonely nerd.
Jenny is spending some time with her dad who happens to be working which mean she’s stuck tagging along with him. This week it’s to an old castle with a renaissance fair but her dad hasn’t made arrangements on where to stay so he’s hoping they can stay at the castle. While driving up to the castle in the rain Jenny’s door is thrust open with a warning that she shouldn’t go any forward but she didn’t listen. Instead at her father’s insistence they continue driving up to the castle even planning o ...more
This was one of my favourite books growing up. I probably read it about a million times. It also was my favourite by Richie T Cusick. I probably loved it because it had a castle with tons of secret passages and rooms and had this real medieval feel right down to the dungeons and damp and drafty hallways.
I think I also had a huge crush on Derrick even though you don't really get to know him very much. I also loved Wit (and still do) - he plays his part well.

I don't think I ever noticed when I was

Could this book be anymore boring? I usually like Richie Cusick books, but this one was a big disappointment. In the begging I was hooked from the part when Jenny and her dad arrive at Worthington Hall and a frighten girl burst opened their car door and warns Jenny to leave. She tells Jenny to turn back or she might get killed if she stays. After that the book went straight down hill and made no sense. It was like a guessing game: Who is stalking Jenny? Is is Wit? Or is it the twins Malcom and D ...more

I read this as a tween and fell in love with the characters. It is actually a book I have re-read many times since and it is one of my secret pleasures as an adult that I often read this once a year for nostalgia. Great story! It still has a nice visible place on my shelf. It is light horror/thriller. I am not someone who generally enjoys that genre, but this also has plenty of possible romance and festival atmosphere to keep me glued to the pages. And who doesn't love a story with creaky castle ...more

wishing it was a five star rating.

I'm a huge fan of Richie Tankersley Cusick. I have read quit a few of her books with no disappointment. Unfortunately, I honestly have to say this is the first. Not that the story wasn't worth reading, I just had a very hard time getting into it, getting through it and finishing it. I still think it worthy of at least three stars, only because it's RTC. I'm still and always will be a big fan!!!

I ABSOLUTELY love Cusick she has always been my favorite author to date. Since most of her books are young adult I pick them up when I am in the mood for a quick read or re-read, however this was my first time reading this one of hers and I loved it! I love how in all of her books you are kind of left in the dark and just tuning pages as quick as you can to find out who the killer is!

Why I love this book...there is an ancient castle, a renaissance fair happening nearby, a set of attractive twins, and of course, romance and a mystery. The question is who is who and how is Jenny going to figure it out on time? All I have to say, what is not to love?

I love Cusick's books, but this one was my least favorite. I just think that not everything was explained, and you're completely in the dark as to what's going on the whole time.

I would have liked to see something definite upon Jenny's feelings on one of the guys at the end.

I've read several of her books in the last few months, and they're quite enjoyable/easy reads. What happened to the author?
