's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: own, young-adult, horror-etc


I feel like I just got off the crazy train with this book. I feel like my brain could be related to this book. This book is utter madness and I loved it!

Silla steals away in the night with her little sister Nori. They are running from their father who abused them, not that way, like punching out teeth and stuff. Their mother had told them about their aunt Cathy that lived in a mansion in the woods. It was all good at first, but then . . .


I love how this book is written and the pages laid out. I will show a few at the end of the review.

The story is told in the now and back years ago when three sisters made a little no no in the woods

Anne. Youngest. Most precious.
Pamela. The middle sister. Wildest.
Catherine. Eldest. Most Sensible.

The Jewel.
The Adventurer.
The Protector.
Three little girls did a very bad thing.

The girls aunt Cath told them to never go into the Python Woods. There lives the Creeper Man!


A tree. It's a tree. I convince myself of this, almost fully. Until the thing steps forward, his head turning a fraction in my direction. I can almost hear the tiny creeeeeeeeeeak as his head rotates. It is a tall, long-limbed, bulbous-headed shadow.
I blink again.
And again.
Closer each time. Like the trees. Tall, thin. Eerily silent. Still and watchful. A man. Something like a man.
But he has no eyes.
I notice this right away. He has no face. Wait . . . is that. . . is that-
There's a mouth.
A long gash of a mouth, thin and smiling. A jagged line. Until it falls open, revealing teeth and an endless blackness.
And then it falls forward on all fours, long and thin and impossible, scuttling back into the woods, head cocked up to me, until he is nothing but a tree shadow and I don't know if I've seen it at all.
The Creeper Man.

I mean that right there should tell you how creepy this book is, although, when the girls first get there, everything is fine. They have a wonderful garden and time with their aunt. And then things just go south from there. I can't even people!

If you want a creepy book to read for Halloween or just to read then this is one of them!


Bloody Brilliant!

James I am half way thru and want to throw it out the window but like the damn trees and creeper man, it is stuck in my head and won't unroot. If I didn't know better, I'd swear this was some sort of bad trip! I'll finish it because of a few good reviews but the crazy is gonna take me over, I know it.
