Creepy Condors of California
By: Johnathan Rand

The Creepy Condors of California was a suspenseful book. I really liked this book because when a chapter ends it leaves you with questions on what's going to happen. It all started when Melinie, Cameron (Melinie's brother), and their parents went camping. In the summer and the kids went adventuring and frightening things started happening. The main characters are Melinie, Cameron, and Mr. Spellbird. I would reccomend this book people who like suspe

I would recommend this book to anyone thats into scary books or book that tell

I recommend this book to people who have read a bo ...more

Not chilling at all. Then first half was good because it was adventurous and entertaining because of the Condors, but then things changed and it had nothing to do with a chilling tale about condors. Not really captivating.
